Don't miss the opportunity to learn from Jessica. The info she shares is accessible, gentle and easy to incorporate into life. I should know. She helped me out of a month of sickness in two weeks. Now I feel better than I have in over 10 years.

ĀYU Academy student, 2019
Practicing Nurse in the US

What was critical to me was finding a program that offered authentic Āyurvedic knowledge and training - learning Sanskrit, mastering basic Āyurvedic principles, consistent and regular use of the classical texts and being taught by qualified professionals. I have found all of this and more in ĀYU Academy. The depth and breadth of this program instills confidence that I will be able to practice the science of Āyurveda and its clinical application competently.

I have learned more in my first two months at ĀYU Academy than I did in a year and a half of study at my previous school. I am not just regurgitating the material, but thinking and contemplating what I am learning.
