Accredited, inspiring & in-depth. Study from home with an online community.


The 10 week online Modern Ayurveda course explores the fascinating world of Ayurveda and how to bring it into modern life. Ayurveda is the ‘science of life’ or the ‘art of longevity’, and offers an abundance of teachings, practices and lifestyle advice. This course covers the origins of Ayurveda and the authentic ancient practices, and teaches students how to make them accessible, relevant and beneficial in everyday life for a range of clients. From self-care practices like self massage with specific oils and the use of specific herbal blends, to yoga sequences, meditations, seasonal living and daily routines, course participants will be able to use what they learn in their own lives, as well as with students and clients after graduation. 

The course includes live online classes, workshops and lectures, filmed yoga classes to practice and access any time (and keep forever!), guided meditations, assignments, recommended reading, and case study work. Upon successful completion of the course, graduates receive their certificate which will allow them to use this knowledge in their existing work, or as a basis for further training. Many people who take part in the course are therapists, yoga teachers, personal trainers, and those who wish to learn for their own interest. There are assignments and course work to complete throughout, giving each course student a thorough, embodied and genuine understanding of the teachings.

Please note that whilst the online classes are recorded for you to access afterwards and in case you cannot make the live date, it is much more beneficial for all course participants to be present for the live classes on Wednesday evenings 6-7:30pm. Upon successful graduation, you’ll receive your Modern Ayurveda certificate, which is accredited by the IPHM, meaning you can add your newfound knowledge to your existing work and offerings.

 “I have just completed the Modern Ayurveda online course with Emma. What a throughly nourishing and enriching 10 weeks. Emma’s delivery was totally captivating, leaving me with an appetite for more, so I have already booked onto the level 2 course in September. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone wishing to learn more about Ayurveda!

– Lu Mays, course graduate

“I have really enjoyed the Modern Ayurveda online course. Emma has so much knowledge on Ayurveda and wellness to share, and she shares it in such an interesting, thought-provoking and accessible way… with a great sense of humour! As well as deepening my own self-care practice, I have learnt so much that I can’t wait to share with others. I would 100% recommend this course for anyone interested in learning about Ayurveda!”

– Sarah Steed, course graduate

“The Ayurveda course taught and led by Emma is one of the best things i’ve ever put money towards. Something thats helped me grow as a person, become more knowledgable, and self-healing too. The context of what the course itself dives into a little bit of everything, the manual provided is a great tool to refer back to with all the information you need but Emma also provides references to other books that are great reads too. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every moment spent learning with Emma and the course has given me a passion to study again. I’m hungry to know more and go further with my self development and very eager to do my level 2 asap. Thank-you for all the time and love you put into your teachings”. 

– Jader Skinner, course graduate

“Thank you so much for doing this course, I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I really loved having that connection with everyone each week and speaking about what was really going on with ourselves. I have grown so much confidence since doing the course, at first I hated talking about myself and then each week got easier and I really feel like something has shifted in me. I feel a lot more about whats going on in my body, I am in touch with my cycle more and listen to my body.”

– Natasha Holmes, course graduate

“I have been looking at studying Ayurveda ever since I completed my yoga teacher training, but hadn’t found the right course… until I stumbled across Emma’s. The main appeal to me was that it was modern in its approaches and integrated with weekly yoga practices too. An extra bonus was studying in my own time, with constant support from Emma whenever I needed it! The course itself was clear and concise, but also really fun too. Emma makes everything easy to understand and enjoyable. It was useful to work with a case study throughout the course as I now feel confident in coaching others. Overall it was a rounded course with everything I need to know and much more. I feel so much more confident in my own blueprint and how to cater to my needs and to the demands of each season. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to understand themselves better, as well as empowering others to do the same”.

– Emma Orlando, Level 1 Course Graduate
