Ayurvedic Health Counselor (600 credit hours)

Ayurvedic Health Counselor” is a certificate program offered by AyuVidya College of America. The total duration of the program is 11 calendar months. Classes are held on one weekend per month, so students can learn Ayurveda while continuing their current jobs.

Students learn basic Ayurvedic concepts, participate in hands on practical classes, learn Ayurvedic body therapies and make herbal preparations such as herbal ghees, oils and decoctions. Each weekend they observe a client consultation conducted by one of the teachers to gain clinical experience. Theory classes include Ayurvedic philosophy, Ayurvedic physiology, Ayurvedic nutrition, Ayurvedic herbology, Ayurvedic psychology, Ayurvedic preventive science, Ayurvedic subtle therapies, Ayurvedic diagnosis methods and Ayurvedic disease management.

The internship is the integral part of ACA curriculum, in which students learn to conduct “Ayurvedic Health Evaluations” under the supervision of experienced Ayurvedic Doctors. This real life experience helps them gain confidence and courage to be successful Ayurvedic counselors. ACA also prepares students for public speaking and offers speaking opportunities in the community.

Admission and Requirements

We believe in small class sizes for effective learning (No more than 20-30 students per class). The minimum prerequisite for this program is a High School Diploma with a few college level courses in English, Basic Anatomy and Physiology. ACA encourages students who hold a BS degree in any field or are a Certified or Licensed Practitioner in a health related field, including Massage Therapists, Chiropractic, Nursing, Naturopaths, Physicians, etc. to enroll.

The Future for ACA Students

ACA graduates have a bright future in this age of integrative healthcare. They get opportunities to fulfill the need for Ayurvedic healthcare providers. Currently millions of people are looking into other healing practices besides conventional medicine and Ayurveda is one of the main complimentary medicines. Ayurvedic graduates can prosper in variety of fields. They can be competitive Ayurvedic counselors, or public speakers to educate the masses. Graduates who are already licensed health care practitioners, may utilize their Ayurvedic knowledge to enhance their current practices. Freelance writers may start Ayurvedic publications. Massage therapists may open Panchakarma centers. Students interested in health and beauty might start an Ayurvedic spa and beauty center or wellness center. Research savvy students may get involved in research projects in Ayurveda. The office of alternative medicine funds many research projects in holistic health care. Business entrepreneurs may develop Ayurvedic herbal products or food packages, or even Ayurvedic cosmetics. Students in academics may get into teaching or may want to deepen their education and may pursue in-depth studies. It is really up to the graduating student to invent or discover new avenues.
