« back to classes page
The goal to have wellness, free of ailments and disease is at the core of Ayurvedic practices. As your knowledge of Ayurveda deepens, you will study six factors that influence good health in this course.  As one of the world’s oldest medical systems, Ayurveda originated in India more than 3,000 years ago and remains one of the country’s traditional health care systems. The concept of Kayachikitsa, which is the equivalent of internal medicine in the contemporary western system references the Sanskrit word ‘kaya’ meaning body, and ‘chikitsa’ meaning ‘treatment.’ 

You will learn, under these guidelines, about treatments that grounded in the qualities of the body or person rather than the symptoms or disease. Factors of health and wellness are sustained when the mind, body and spirt are complete according to the Ayurveda principles. Ayurveda is recognized by the National Health Institutes/Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NIH/NCCAM) as Alternative Medicine, a complete medical system.
