Our Diploma of Ayurvedic studies trains students in the use of Ayurveda as a health care modality. As part of this diploma students will learn 10 Ayurvedic therapies, be able to provide Ayurvedic lifestyle and dietary advice, dispense a range of Ayurvedic herbs and formulations and be qualified to treat clients using Ayurvedic protocol.

As part of this course participants will also implement Ayurvedic self care regimens, learn some meditation and Yoga techniques, study anatomy & physiology from an Ayurvedic perspective, learn about professional conduct and business awareness and complete clinical training. 

A simple Ayurvedic vegetarian lunch is provided on each day of training. 

On completion of this course, participants will be fully equipped to practice as an Ayurvedic practitioner

This diploma course is a part time course conducted over 18+ months at Satmya Natural Living & Learning Centre, Dronagiri, Co. Clare. Students can choose when to do the Ayurvedic Therapies training, so it is possible to complete this course in 18 months but students can also take an extra time to complete their Therapies modules (choose from 3 options – before the course starts, during the course or at the end of the course).

Testimonials from past pupils

“This is one of the best courses I ever did! It caps off all my studies so far. Ayurveda helps you to guide diet and lifestyle changes, food combinations and herbal formulations to the highest level. I recommend every practitioner and individual must do this course, as it makes so much sense to guide you and your clients to the right path of health….”

15 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,

  4. Hi Yvette and Doug,
    Would you let me know whether there’s an option to attend practitioner parts of the course in person as opposed to zoom/online?
    Many thanks and great health in 2022

    • Hi Karen,
      Lovely to hear from you.
      The practitioner course is mainly an in-person course, however the 1st weekend (January ’22) will be via Zoom. We hope to have all other weekends in-person. Some students opt to attend via zoom if they are unable to make a class but generally there is an option to attend in person if possible as we also feel that this is beneficial to students. This year we are introducing Yoga sessions and Ayurvedic cooking classes as part of each weekend.
      Please let us know if you have any other questions.
      Best wishes,

  5. Can you please send me prospectus and student calendar and more information about each course and payment options?
    Thank you.
