Frequently Asked Questions







What are the advantages of taking the Practitioners Training?

This is a government recognized Ayurvedic Training program which is designed to certify foreign students as Ayurvedic Practitioners. Students who graduate will walk away from the training with all the tools necessary to go back to their own country and begin helping people immediately. The training will include hands-on practical training and the continued support from the staff of the Vinayak Ayurveda and Panchakarma Research Foundation.



Where is the Practitioner Training held?

The Practitioner Training program will be held in Nagpur, India at the Vinayak Panchakarma Chikitsalaya .



Are housing facilities provided?

The Vinayak Ayurveda and Panchakarma Research Foundation does provide housing. There are attached rooms at the clinic in India and food and lodging are provided at a modest, additional charge.




I have already taken Anatomy and Physiology, do I really need to take it again?

If you have already taken A&P then you will certainly have an advantage, but the answer is "no". You will however need to have a general understanding of anatomy and physiology to get the most from the program. The Practitioner Training will be teaching A&P with more of an Ayurvedic perspective.



Is everyone who applies accepted into the Practitioner Training program?

No. Each student will need to be approved by the teacher and agree to abide by the policies and philosophy of the school.
