Learn Authentic Panchakarma Therapies

This brand new program is answering a call from many people for training to become proficient in panchakarma (PK) therapies so they can offer them as part of their home businesses. We are delighted to be able to offer it this year!

The program is held at the Vasanta Institute of Ayurveda in Pune, Maharashtra for 8 weeks. Participants will be thoroughly trained in Vasant Lad’s PK therapies, including the unique opportunity to learn color therapy. Students will have the opportunity to work with our PK clients with supervision from our faculty.

The first two weeks are focused on training and practicing therapies on each other. After that, the first round of clients arrive for two weeks and students will perform treatments on the clients as well as sit in on their consultations with Vasant Lad. There is then a week of digestion and fine-tuning, and the second round of clients arrives for two weeks. The final week is further fine-tuning and assimilation so that you are ready to return home as confident and competent panchakarma therapists.

 

Massage licenses are not required to participate, as per Indian law, but students are encouraged to be aware of the laws in their place of residence. Similar to the Gurukula program, there is a tremendous amount of focus on living an Ayurvedic lifestyle through dinacharya and community exercises, including daily agnihotra, throughout the program.

The program runs from August 28 to October 21, 2016. Each applicant’s experience is considered on an individual basis. There is both a written application and an interview.

Total cost of tuition and room and board (excluding application, administration fees and travel expenses to the center) is $7,992 USD.
