8 Comments on “Ayurvedic Practitioner”

  1. Hi,
    I’m interested in your ayurveda course.
    Could I ask what the structure of the course, please? Are there classes every Sat and Sun?
    Is this done online?
    Thank you,

  2. To whom this may concern,

    I am very interested in completing this course.

    When is the next course start date and due to covid is it distance learning?

  3. I am really interested in your training course. Do you offer a payment scheme/ pay in installments? Is this done at weekends/ how often, monthly?

    • Hi Eileen,
      Thanks for your interest in our courses. I have emailed you a course prospectus which gives you more details about our courses. We do offer a payment scheme which works out at €283 per month for 18months after you pay the €900 deposit. Unfortunately this is a more expensive way to pay for the course (course fee + 10%). There is an Early bird price available until October 31st which gives students €500 off the total fee – many of our students avail of this offer by taking out a loan which they can pay back over a longer period.
      Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    • Hi Hilda,
      Thanks for your question.
      About 60% of the Practitioner course can be done online (via live Zoom lectures) but the therapies, diagnostics, cleanses (pancha karma) and clinical studies must be done in person. We will be offering an online Ayurvedic Wellness Coach Diploma from January 2023.
      Kind regards,
