"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, Ayurveda Life Mastery/Ayurvedic Health & Life Coach Training Program & Ayurvedic Practitioner Program Graduate, Founder of Lunar Shakti Healing


"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, Ayurveda Life Mastery/Ayurvedic Health & Life Coach Training ProgramAyurvedic Practitioner Program Graduate, Arcata, CA
