"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." ~ Anne Hoffweber, Ayurvedic Practitioner, Ayurvedic Living ProgramAyurvedic Practitioner Program Graduate, Founder of Lunar Shakti Healing

"Thank you for teaching this Ayurvedic Self-Care Immersion class. I am so happy to have the tools to create a healthy life for myself and my family. The information I received is invaluable. I will definitely recommend this class to my friends"

"I am so happy to have the tools to create nutritious meals for my family.  The information I received is invaluable.  I would definitely recommend it to my friends. Thank you!" ~Karena Gore (Ayurvedic Cooking Immersion)

"The Ayurvedic Practitioner Program has provided me with many valuable skills that I use both in my personal and work life.  After completing the Ayurvedic Practitioner Program, 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 program gave me a plethora of practical knowledge that I continue to utilize in my practice."  ~  Lisa Hoyt FNP, Ayurvedic Practitoner, Ayurvedic Living Program & Ayurvedic Practitioner Program 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!" ~ Selena Rowan (Ayurvedic Self-Care Immersion & Ayurvedic Living Program)

"Thank you for offering this class. I am so excited to get this glimpse into this beautiful system. I feel this body of knowledge to be what I have been searching for. Thank you so much!" ~ Jessica Lovelady  

"I could write a novel about everything I learned in the Ayurvedic Living Program. The love, support and intimate experience that I had in all of the NIA programs would be impossible to get in larger schools." ~ Anne Hoffweber
