The Integral Yoga Institute of New York just announced the launch of a new offering: the Ayurveda Academy. The inspiring mission of the Academy is three-fold: teaching students to create and support a vibrant, balanced lifestyle for themselves; training students for a career of service to others through the ancient art of Ayurveda; and inspiring students to become  pillars of health and education for their communities.

The first program of the Academy is the Ayurveda Health Counselor Training Program led by Integral Yoga teacher and Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner, Cory Tixier. The program begins April 2019 and is open to all health practitioners, licensed massage therapists, aromatherapists, homeopaths, practitioners of Oriental medicine, Yoga instructors, Yoga therapists, and everyone wishing to heal and focus on the self and/or to harness and ignite his or her own potential as a healer. The three modules include contact hours and online study for a flexible, personalized, and supported path. Each module is the prerequisite for the next. Upon completion of all three modules, students will have 650 hours of training (may be used toward Yoga Alliance 500-hour requirement; fully accredited by NAMA and makes you eligible for the NAMA health counselor certification exam).
