The Complete Academic Program for Ayurveda
12th of December 2015
The complete academic program is divided into a flexible schedule of four modules. Each module lasts for one year and includes theoretical and practical aspects of the subject. The modules are designed to enable the students to learn simultaneously while they work and also to assimilate the whole knowledge given during the classes. Since it’s an ancient science written in poetry, it takes some time to assimilate the transmission of knowledge with regular personal effort and practice.
Each module has been designed scientifically with equal stress on theory, practicals, personal work and experience with the teacher. Students are recommended to devote at least an hour everyday on their own to understand the concept in depth. Students are highly recommended to participate in the training in India to have first hand experience of the subject.
