Become an Ayurvedic Health Coach
This Diploma course is more than just a practitioners’ course. You will learn how to ‘coach’ someone to their full potential of health and well-being, helping them to understand and make the correct choices for their unique constitution, mind-set and passions in life. Ayurveda recognizes that, for true health, it is just as important to help someone realize their inner nature or their authentic self, as well as eat correctly and follow an appropriate lifestyle.
A holistic approach to health
Ayurveda shows us that the natural elements - such as the warmth and light of the sun, the air we breathe, and the mineral and plant substances - have an immense therapeutic value. Intelligent use of these gifts of nature, combined with a wholesome diet and a positive mindset, contribute to a healthy and fulfilling life. Its holistic and integrated approach to health will allow you to reconnect with your original self and so remain energised and centred. In our busy world we have lost our connection with natural rhythms. our working day now flows into the night as electronic devices stay on late and we travel across time zones at high speed. Ayurveda provides the tools to help you manage these ever-changing, ever-moving lifestyles. You can optimise your health and wellbeing on every level.
Become a confident health coach
By the end of the course you will have the clinical and nutrition skills to help you clients to optimize their health and happiness.
Overview of the course
We walk you through every stage of the process so by the end of the course you will feel confident in your clinical skills (observation, questioning, tongue and pulse diagnosis, designing treatment plans ...) and nutrition skills (not just knowing what foods and herbs are beneficial for constitutions but translating that to actual recipes and meal plans for your clients).
