WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING...

 

"To say that the Northwest Institute of Ayurveda 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 NIA programs." ~ A.H., Ayurvedic Practitioner,  Ayurveda Life MasteryTM trainings graduate & Ayurveda Herbalist trainings graduate

"The Ayurveda Herbalist  trainings have provided me with many valuable skills that I use both in my personal and work life.  After completing the Ayurveda Life Mastery trainings and Ayurveda Herbalist trainings, 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 to 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 trainings have given me a plethora of practical knowledge that I continue to utilize in my practice."  ~  L.H., Ayurvedic Practitoner, Ayurveda Life Mastery trainings graduate & Ayurveda Herbalist trainings graduate, Arcata, CA 

"Don't miss out on an opportunity to spend time with Traci while she immerses you in Ayurvedic lifestyle medicine, her specialty and my favorite aspect of the Ayurvedic canon. Love you Traci!" ~ S.R. Ayurveda Life MasteryTM trainings graduate

"I could write a novel about everything I learned in the Ayurveda Life MasteryTM trainings. The love, support and intimate experience that I had in all of the NIA programs would be impossible to get in larger schools. There were lifelong bonds formed among the teachers and students. On a regular basis we laughed, cried, sang, cooked, chanted, dreamed and held space for each other."
