Our Village

We’re blessed to have a myriad of other organizations, entities, and support for both The Ayurvedic Institute and our students. As members of our community, the additional opportunities to interact with our sister organizations makes the entire experience of being a student that much sweeter.


AyurPrana is the second wing to The Ayurvedic Institute. AyurPrana was founded by Vasant Lad’s very own students to further his mission of reaching Ayurveda to each and every being on this planet. Together with AyurPrana, Ayurveda and Vasant Lad reaches students all over the world to make Ayurveda accessible from near and far. Together, we know that there are no limits to the wisdom of Ayurveda or to bringing that wisdom to your door. Visit liveayurprana.com for more information on the work we’re doing with AyurPrana.
