Joining our Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor program

Fall 2019

It’s not too late to join our program! Since we’re beginning now, here’s a quick guide on how to get started so you don’t miss a beat.


Key dates

Orientation was Oct 15 –  it was recorded, so you can view the playback.

Weekend Intensive class 1 was Oct 26-27 and the first Tuesday Virtual Class Nov 5. Both classes were recorded, so you can view the playbacks.


Complete your enrollment form online

This is required for us to add you to the elearning system and send your manuals.


In your enrollment form…

  • Don’t worry about which payment plan you select – you can change that later if you need to. Select which option works best for now, and you can always contact our Student Support team later to adjust (
  • And don’t worry about which format you choose between Distant Learning (online) and Milpitas, CA if you might want to change that as well. Tuition is the same for both, and it can also be adjusted! Just select Milpitas, CA if you intend to join us in-class for most weekends.


Welcome Letter & What to Expect

  • Please keep in mind our Student Support team processes each enrollment manually.
  • If you enroll just before Orientation, we might send you access to the Orientation before you get your complete Welcome Letter.
  • We’ll send you a complete Welcome Letter after you enroll with an overview of the program.
  • After Orientation, we’ll invite you to join the course in our elearning system.
  • Your print manuals will be shipped as soon as possible; if they do not arrive by the next class – not to worry. The digital versions are in the elearning center, and there’s no required reading before class.


Orientation – Oct 15

Live streamed Orientation was conducted Tuesday, Oct 15 from 5:30-7:30pm Pacific and you’ll get access to the recording. You’ll get to meet our Academy Director, Dr. (Vaidya) Jayarajan Kodikannath and Academy Manager, Kathy Moore. We’ll overview everything you need to know about the program.
