What our Herbalist School students say...

"Completing the Ayurvedic Herbalist Trainings gave me not just the knowledge but also the wisdom to heal bodily imbalances. The diversity of healing philosophies from the different teachers made this a very enriching experience. The hands-on medicine making immersions and internship helped bring the knowledge to life. I am deeply grateful to the school for the confidence I now have as I work with clients to help them jumpstart their health."

"The Ayurveda Herbalist trainings changed my life in so many ways! My personal and professional life have changed and grown in ways I could not expect. I learned so much and am so grateful for everything I gained in the trainings!"

~ Lynn Hanger ~
Ayurveda Herbalist Trainings Graduate

"I really appreciate everything you did for us and the tremendous health benefits I got from taking both Ayurveda Herbalist Trainings!! I really don’t know where I would be without the programs. My menorrhagia is gone. I went from 4 days in bed each month, in pain, anemic, no energy, to normal menses, no problems. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!"

~ Katie Horowitz ~
Ayurveda Herbalist Trainings Graduate

"The Ayurveda Herbalist Trainings were a game changer in my wholistic western herbalist approach to life. The trainings widened my perspective and gave me a deeper understanding to healing ourselves through the Ayurvedic lens of self care. The training set a foundation for a future of healing myself and helping others heal themselves through an Ayurveda lifestyle and the addition of herbs when necessary. The school community and teachers were very inspiring and I feel as if I have a sense of community for life. I am truly blessed having been given this opportunity to participate in the Ayurveda Herbalist Training. "

~ Fallon Orr ~
Ayurveda Herbalist Trainings Graduate

"The Ayurvedic Herbalist trainings have provided me with many valuable skills that I use both in my personal and work life. After completing ALS's programs, I developed the confidence to launch an Integrative Health Program at my work place. I now offer holistic consults, and prepare personal ayurvedic herbal formulas for my patients. I have an active practice in medicine as a Nurse Practitioner in a Community Health Center and am required to see 16-20 patients per day addressing simple and complex health problems. I have studied many alternative health modalities over the years, but my knowledge of Ayurveda has allowed me to identify and treat the dosha out of balance and look more deeply at the root issues. The program gave me a plethora of practical knowledge that I continue to utilize in my practice." ~ Lisa Hoyt, Ayurvedic Practitoner, Ayurvedic Herbalist, Nurse Practitioner, Ayurvedic Herbalist & Ayurveda Life Mastery (formerly Ayurvedic Living Program) graduate, ALS, Arcata, CA"

~ Lisa Hoyt ~
Ayurvedic Practitioner, Nurse Practitioner, ALS Graduate

"I took the Ayurveda Herbalist training because I have been interested in both Ayurveda and Herbalism for a few years and I thought why not try both?! What a beautiful program and combination. This program would be great for anyone who is already a western herbalist wanting to expand their knowledge or anyone who is interested in Ayurveda and wants to dive head first into common imbalances and how to see them from the wholistic perspective! From this course I gained more than I ever would have imagined, including self-confidence, life-long friends, and clarity for the future."

~ Shawn Specht ~
Ayurveda Herbalist Trainings Graduate

"The Ayurveda Herbalist Trainings have truly been an amazing experience and opportunity. I totally suggest anyone wanting to learn this way of living to join. It's amazing! The community & resources are so helpful. It's helped me sooo much with understanding myself & helping me open up. It's helped me with communicating my feelings & thoughts. This program has changed me in so many good ways this has been an amazing journey and I will do it again!!! Thank you to the Ayurvedic Living School team❤️❤️"

~ Brittany Rucker ~
Ayurveda Herbalist Trainings Graduate, Owner ~ Beatyntheherbs

"To say that the Ayurvedic Living School has transformed my life would be an understatement. I came to Ayurveda broken, fragile and scared. I emerged happy, healthy and confident. From the bottom of my heart, I highly recommend all of the ALS programs."

~ Anne Allen ~
Ayurveda Life MasteryTM (formerly Ayurvedic Living Program) & Ayurveda Herbalist Program Graduate

"I am so very grateful to have found Ayurveda. I love everything about it. Nothing has ever felt so right to me. This is exactly where I am supposed to be and what I am supposed to be doing...having this background and tools to use allows me to truly take care of my patients and I am so grateful to be able to use this to help people."

~ Amanda Gray ~
Ayurvedic Herbalist Trainings Graduate

"When I first found the program I was searching for something I could do in light of the fact my massage office had been closed down due to covid. I have studied Ayurveda for years so was very excited to find something I could do online and something I believed strongly in and knew something about. The journey towards my goal of becoming a health and longevity coach :) has been a bit long dream I have accomplished. I look forward to sharing the valuable life skills I have learned here with others and feel like I will be able to build a very fulfilling and successful business from what I have learned."

~ Roblynn Neumann ~
Ayurveda Herbalist Trainings Graduate

"The Ayurveda Herbalist Trainings give insight as to how lifestyle impacts our health and how the elements being out of balance can slowly cause disease. With this course, I learned how to incorporate lifestyle and herbs when needed to live my best life. Best of all, I can share this information with my loved ones."

~ Kelly Duvall ~
