"I’m so grateful to Ileana for finally offering these classes on Ayurveda. Her style of teaching is very simple, succinct and comprehensive. She made the various Ayurvedic concepts and principles easy to understand which I found very helpful. Additionally, being in a small group setting was extremely helpful as it gave the course more 1-1 feeling. She explained things in great detail with patience and encouragement for us to further explore our interest in Ayurveda. I definitely and highly recommend seeing Ileana for Ayurvedic consultations, treatments and of course taking the Ayurveda workshops with her. She’s the absolute best!" - Sabbi H.

I hope to spend more time with Ileana and highly recommend everyone who wants to gain more knowledge about Ayurveda." - Zahra K

Ayurveda is one of the oldest medical systems in the world, originating at least five thousand years ago in what is now India. It is a comprehensive system of medicine that emphasizes the interconnectedness of the body, mind and spirit and strives to maintain the innate harmony of the individual.
Apurva Wellness provides PACE courses through the National Ayurvedic Medical Association for 12 hour or 25 hour CE credit. The objective of this curriculum is to present the fundamental principles of Ayurveda and clearly identify this ancient science as a viable approach to self-care and healing; as well as highlight the areas that will serve our community in the best possible way.
Level I – Immersion
12 classroom hours. 1 weekend intensive
Through an exploration of the basic language and principles of Āyurveda, participants will learn to promote wellness through a variety of Ayurvedic inspired practices and further understand this ancient science by applying the knowledge to their own lives.
The course introduces Ayurveda’s unique system of describing and classifying the various divisions of the body’s innate intelligence, called the 3 Doshas--Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The course outlines the important principles of this ancient approach, and allows the individualization of diet, herbs, food, and other natural lifestyle recommendations of Ayurveda.

This course builds on the Level I Immersion, leading the student through an understanding of classical Ayurveda and its applications for the promotion of health.
This Level includes an apprenticeship program providing participants an opportunity to apply the knowledge with hands-on experience. The course provides simple but very effective health management strategies to guide the participant toward a state of balance of mind and body.
