Ayurveda: a commonsense wellness solution

The ancient and timeless wisdom of Ayurveda, or Traditional Indian Medicine, is a total healthcare science. Ayurveda provides natural solutions through practical lifestyle changes. It targets the root causes of imbalance, supporting total mind-body healing and prevention of disease for long lasting results against common ailments. Ayurvedic medicine has been practiced for over 5,000 years and its incredibly well-documented history makes it one of the most reliable health systems in the world.

Healthcare in the United States is changing. Health science has evolved to encompass all physical, emotional, and environmental factors which contribute to our overall well-being. Ayurveda encompasses all these factors to achieve harmony at the level of body, mind, and spirit. At Kerala Ayurveda, we believe it is our purpose to serve as a leading source for this knowledge which is so essential in today’s world.

It is our mission and purpose at Kerala Ayurveda Academy (KAA) to provide the highest quality of education in Ayurvedic practice so that our students may become the finest Ayurvedic health providers and educators of the future.

Our number one commitment is to you! At the heart of all our teachings is your well-being. The study of Ayurveda is a healing journey which can help you achieve harmony in all aspects of your life – physical, mental, and emotional. Many of our students come to us as result of frustration with the limitations of conventional medicine for their personal health. Ayurveda provides common sense solutions to health and living which allow the body, mind, and spirit to truly undergo a long-term transformation. The result: taking charge of your well-being and living an embodied, more productive life.

KAA is here to assist you at every level of that journey, whether you are new to Ayurveda or an Ayurvedic professional seeking continued education. We believe that awareness and education is a key factor for meaningful change, and access to the most authentic Ayurveda –as documented in the original root Vedic texts – is an essential foundation for study. By educating yourself in this ancient practice, you will be able to continue the ancient Ayurvedic lineage and foster awareness in others, touching the lives of your family, friends, clients, and community.
