"Dr. Lad opened my eyes to the wisdom of Ayurveda and the potential it has to help people proactively manage their health and well-being. Being in his presence on a regular basis was illuminating and transformative. My time at the Ayurvedic Institute, was instrumental in my own healing process and has deeply inspired my work in service to the ever-growing Ayurvedic community."

Arriving at the Ayurvedic Institute I really did not know what to expect. As the classes began to unfold, as the connections with the other students began to grow, and as the personal awareness following the experiential learning blossomed, I realized I was not in an educational setting like any other. The influence of Dr. Lad is apparent even in the classes he does not teach as each instructor has created a beautiful learning experience where each student has the space to grow into our knowledge and into our personal journey. I am very grateful for the ability to learn directly from Dr. Vasant Lad as the most authoritative person in Ayurveda in the United States and one of the world’s foremost Ayurveda experts. The experience with Dr. Lad at the Ayurveda Institute has awakened my soul and is teaching me about the human experience that I hope one day will allow me to be of service to others in their healing journey.

"The Ayurvedic studies program has been life-changing for me; the absolute best, most mind and heart expanding two years! It has enabled me to dedicate myself to the study of Ayurveda and Yoga whilst supporting me as I integrate the glory of these ancient ways into my daily life. Surrounded by a community made up of the wonderful faculty and fellow students, my studies have been supported and held in the loving container of Dr Lad’s lineage. The heart-centered approach has challenged me to connect with the teachings and clients in deeper ways than I had previously thought possible whilst a strong focus on application and practice of the principles has made it possible for me to feel confident in clinical practice. I will be forever grateful for my time as a student of Dr Lad and the Ayurvedic Institute. It has been a joy and an honor and I would recommend it to anyone who is seeking to dive deep into the heart of Ayurveda, to heal themselves and learn to help others heal."
