Ayurveda is a traditional Indian Wellness Philosophy that dates back over 5000 years. It’s basic premise is that the entire cosmos or universe is part of one singular absolute. Everything that exists in the vast external universe (macrocosm), also appears in the internal cosmos of the human body (microcosm). When the body is healthy it self corrects, and self regulates just as the universe does.

The fundamental concept of Ayurveda is to maintain health. Health care is a highly individualised practice under Ayurvedic principles, which state that everyone has a specific constitution, that determines his or her physical, physiologic and mental character and vulnerability to disease. Ayurveda does not look at the disease it looks at the host and it’s origin.

What is an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant?

An Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant is a practitioner whose primary aim is to maintain the ‘Health of the Healthy’, by providing lifestyle advice according to Ayurvedic principles. 

Ayurveda is a system of health care that applies knowledge about health and disease, and treats the individual as a whole: physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. People working at this level may be self-employed independent consultants or work in a larger health service with Ayurvedic or other natural therapists/practitioners.

Career prospects:

Many of our graduates set up their own private practice or work in multi-disciplinary natural therapy clinics. Other possible employment avenues may include working in health retreats, spas or hotels.

Having or undertaking a qualification to become a Trainer and Assessor or equivalent (A diploma or higher level qualification in adult education), can lead to consulting work with a Registered Training Organisation such as ourselves!

Diploma of Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultation Course Description

The Diploma of Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultation has been developed in part with Ayurvedic Doctors and references the traditional text Charaka Samhita. The premise of Charaka Samhita is that through the principles and practices of Ayurveda we acknowledge nature and its elements reflected and existing within us. By connecting a person with nature you align them with the elements; vata, pitta and kapha, qualities that occur within us all.
