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.
