Is Ayurvedic Study or Ayurvedic Medicine Right for Me?
If you’re like most of our students and clients, you are seeking:
A holistic approach to the principles, philosophies, treatments and nutrition of Ayurvedic medicine
Clearly explained concepts that you can retain and implement easily
A balance of classical theory and practical application of the knowledge
The ability to learn with compassion and confidence, in order to practice Ayurveda for yourself or others
A supportive and inspiring environment led by a highly-qualified faculty
Knowledge of time-proven Ayurvedic traditions without modern shortcuts – yet still highly relevant and easy to apply in your everyday life or practice
Dr. Leena Athparia, ND
“As a naturopathic doctor searching to deepen my understanding of Ayurveda, I was really happy with the programs at CAISH. I wasn’t looking for pure theory or book knowledge but actual hands-on, practical learning which I could integrate right away. CAISH provided a delicate balance of both. The classes are small, allowing lots of one-on-one time with instructors that have a deep knowledge of the art and science of Ayurveda, and an understanding of Ayurvedic practice for the local population.”
“Learning about Ayurveda at CAISH has been an enriching experience that has furthered my appreciation and resolve to live in accordance with this ancient holistic healing system as a way to achieve health, wellness and one’s true purpose.”
Deborah L Boughner, ASCC graduate 2015
“My experience in the ASCC program at CAISH has been more rewarding than I had imagined and has changed my life in a very positive way. The teachers are not only knowledgeable in their respective fields but also very passionate. I recommend this course not only to someone wishing to pursue a career in Ayurveda or alternative medicine but also for anyone wishing to improve their overall health and well being.”

What is Ayurveda?
This interview with our founder, Ismat Nathani, gives an overview of Ayurveda as it applies to modern life. Although Ayurvedic Medicine is an ancient collection of wisdom, you can use this knowledge today. Listen and watch to gain insights into self-healing, the energy centers of the body, why your awareness is so important, and the one “medicine” nobody can do without.
The health and wellness principles from 3,000 years of ancient Vedic sciences, including Ayurveda and Yoga, are time proven and deliver effective natural health care, spiritual awareness and education to our students and clients.
CAISH is proud to offer a home for Ayurvedic study and care in our facilities in Toronto, Canada.
