This is a very high level foundational program in Ayurvedic Medicine providing students with a solid foundation from which to explore the deeper applications of Ayurveda. Students who complete this program may continue their studies to become an Ayurvedic practitioner or begin to integrate what they have learned into complementary modalities (including massage therapy and Yoga). Graduates of this program may also choose to conduct  introductory Ayurvedic workshops.
