A solid education creates a confident practice. Our graduates succeed independently and collaboratively in holistic, sustainable healthcare. We are actively working to create a stable profession through strategic partnerships.

Āyurveda redefines healthcare.

The future of holistic, sustainable healthcare looks bright with Āyurveda. It is the longest, continuously practiced healthcare system globally and is a treasure chest of timeless wisdom and universal knowledge for health and happiness.

The practice of Āyurveda is rapidly expanding today for many good reasons. The science provides a complete, holistic framework for integrating all factors that impact health and tools to assess and measure health. It takes a proactive approach to prevent disease, maintain normal health and optimize it for a lifetime.

But applying and practicing Āyurveda today also comes with many challenges. Understanding its principles in the context of different geographical regions, people, culture and time is a requirement for success. The science needs to continuously be updated through research and development, and evidence-based practice.

The American Āyurvedic Academy recognizes these needs and is responding with unique solutions in the western world. We provide education and practical training rooted in the core framework of Āyurveda utilizing the latest technology to advance our capacity to apply the science.

I invite you to learn about our professional educational programs which have been redesigned from the ground up for the modern world. Our goal is to maximize the capabilities of Āyurveda as the primary modality of holistic, sustainable healthcare and we continuously strive to reflect these values.
