Dr. Sanjay Pisharody
AWP SEA 2012, Palliative Specialist

As an allopathic practising doctor I found I needed some help to root out some conditions without side effects. Being from kerala myself ayurveda was the first thing that came to mind.
I joined the Academy for distance learning and found it a good online course, theoretically sound and with good video classes.Then it was hard to find a good online course and finally i found you.
How is your experience?- Mixed experience. Theoretically it is fantastic as well as all the video classes. The weekly discussions are very helpful.
My future plan is to have a holistic medical practice and also to teach and share what i have learned with others – common people and medical practitioners alike – to create a better awareness about health and wellness in a holistic manner. This plan comes much closer to fruition thanks to the Academy’s enthusiasm to teach and share

As a nutritionist, implementing Ayurveda has enabled me to take my practice to a whole new level! I have found my true passion and focus on women's health and fertility.

I have not been able to find any course with such complete knowledge as the science of Ayurveda teaches. The continued support from KAA and its caring staff has been a true gift!

The authentic and unique education that I received at KAA has not only improved the quality of my own life and my understanding of how to maintain my own health, but has enabled me to become a confident, effective practitioner able to assist others. What is unique about this program is its foundational roots in classical Kerala-style tradition, emphasis on theoretical as well as practical knowledge (classes include demos and hands-on learning and an intensive clinical internship in India), parallel teaching of classical formulations as well as practical formulas (based on what is currently available), and an unrivaled commitment to the students and quality of education through the addition of seasonal workshops and weekly webinars. We are taught to be methodical, comprehensive, observant and caring practitioners and to take the entire person into account when conducting each consultation or therapy. The KAA staff take our education very seriously and it is obvious that they care deeply about Ayurveda and about the accurate sharing of the gifts it has to offer humanity. I never felt as if we were learning a pre-packaged model of Ayurveda that is so prevalent in the West. I am so grateful for everything this institution has given me. It is obvious that KAA is working to build an international network of competent Ayurvedic practitioners who can guide our future toward better health, happiness and sustainability based on this gift of ancient wisdom. I highly recommend this program for anyone serious about becoming an Ayurvedic practitioner and looking for a top quality, authentic educational experience.

Proximity and the option of distance learning made me choose the AWC program at Kerala Ayurveda Academy. I have finished my first year of AWC and am now beginning my AWP program secure that I made the right decision. What I trust most about this school is the level of faculty and staff member commitment . Even beyond our program, the greatest gift is the outstanding community support KAA has created where we can all come together and keep learning from each other. The e-learning system KAA provides is really a great tool. With this we can review class video materials and ask questions by chat or e-mail, and there are growing numbers of archived materials available to us. This is just one example of how KAA keeps evolving to offer better and better support to current and past students. There is in the true sense a feeling of family : that we support each other in learning this great science. I'm really happy that I'm part of it now. Namaste!!!

AWC SEA 2012

I’m 44 years old and a new student of the Academy. Earlier this year, I found Kerala Ayurveda Academy online and spoke with the administration office. The course sounded too good to be true, especially for non-medical students. The office staff were gracious with their time and spoke with me at great length about the academy’s goals in educating people about the ayurvedic practice of health. I was also impressed by the depth of the study material offered, as well as learning that our instructors would be practicing physicians. I have not found another program to match this in value for money and depth. I am so very happy and grateful.

Besides my Indian origin, my Dad’s love and passion for Ayurveda introduced me to this science at a very young age.

I Joined Kerala Ayurveda academy in 2010 for my first level of training as Ayurvedic wellness counselor wondering whether the teaching would be as authentic as if I studied in India.

I was impressed by the highly trained, knowledgeable and passionate teachers at the Academy. All had clinical experience of more than 9 to 10yrs and never hesitated to share their knowledge and wisdom.

I continued my education with Kerala Ayurveda Academy for the next Practitioner level and today would highly recommend this Academy to all who are looking for authentic knowledge and hands-on practical and clinical based training straight from the Vedic wisdom.
