CCA Ambassadors

CCA Ambassadors

CCA Ambassadors are our most successful alumni and examples of successful Ayurvedic practitioners. The following ambassadors have been selected by the college to be featured so that the public and current students can see how training at CCA can support the work they aspire to accomplish in their communities and our world. These ambassadors graciously make themselves available to speak with students and share from their experiences as practitioners and business owners with those who are starting on the Ayurvedic path.

If you are a CCA graduate and actively working as an Ayurvedic Practitioner, consider joining our ambassador program by sharing more about yourself here:
