While several decades ago, it was hard to find any information on Ayurveda and Haṭha Yoga in the West at all, today we face a different challenge. There are so many educational resources that it can be daunting to find programs one can trust to be accurate, authentic, and well-organized.

It took years for Dr. Robert Svoboda, Dr. Claudia Welch and Scott Blossom L.Ac. to obtain, assimilate, practice, and organize the knowledge they share here for the first time as a unified program. The potency of this course lies in its enlivened, concise delivery of in-depth, authentic information and knowledge within a robust, interactive online learning community.

Testimonials

I loved this course!  I wondered if it would be challenging to engage with an online course that offers information so counter to perspectives I encounter in everyday life but I found the lessons very thorough and they often had me laughing out loud. I can't say enough good things. Both teachers' perspectives have deeply influenced my relationship with life and I am certain will continue to do so as I move forward.

I [graduated from a reputable 2-year-long school of Āyurveda]... and it was overwhelming. I thought I got it but then when I [took Foundations of Āyurveda Part I] and we learned everything we were taught [in that course], it started to click into place for me. And this time [taking Foundations of Āyurveda Part II]... doing the srotamsi - I didn't quite get it [before]- I didn't take that into my practice because I was afraid I didn't really grasp it, but it's coming into place now, and it's so amazing! There's so much more detail and it's really helping me grasp it... I'm getting it now, which is so fabulous!

-Student of Foundations of Āyurveda I & II

While the general material covered was the same as AHC ["Ayurveda Health Counselor" in an in-person, reputable Ayurveda program], there was so much more information given in this course that really expanded my knowledge from AHC. It is proving really beneficial as I am in my clinical externships right now. The course was engaging, funny, and really helped me to digest all of the knowledge from AHC crossed with this course. I also learned a lot about myself...
