What Our Students Say
I was ready for a major change in my life. The study of Ayurveda has turned out to be a profoundly transformative process. I am studying and experiencing healing, joy, and connectedness on amazingly deep levels.
Every day in my Ayurvedic practice I am so very grateful and inspired by this wonderfully inclusive science and for the depth of training I received from the California College of Ayurveda. My training has given me the opportunity to see the world in a new way and to help people recreate balance and harmony in their lives.
Wisdom of a Divine Science
The C.A.S. program was the beginning of a transformation of consciousness. CCA offers the wisdom of a divine science to those wishing enrichment and understanding of the new paradigm of health emerging today.
I chose CCA for two reasons. Their monthly classes allowed me to keep working while learning Ayurveda, and the hands-on training I received in the Pancha Karma Clinic, the Herb Lab, and the many workshops and seminars gave me personal insight into what my future clients will experience as they adopt an Ayurvedic lifestyle.
Being a student at CCA was completely life changing for me. The education I received changed how I view the world and how I live my life. From the beautiful setting/community in which the college is set, to the wonderful instructors, my experience at CCA was more than I could have ever expected. I chose the college for the comprehensiveness of the program, and was not disappointed. My AHP internship really solidified my knowledge of the material, and I feel well equipped to continue into sharing my knowledge with others.
A Solid Foundation
My experience with the CCA has not only provided me with a solid foundation upon which my Ayurvedic career flourishes, but has also catalyzed deep healing and growth on a personal level. I appreciate that the teachers at the CCA are inspiring, and the entire staff committed the success of their students.
Dream Come True
I am incredibly grateful and blessed by the teachers and staff at CCA. Their knowledge, wisdom, support and guidance has been life changing and instrumental in my decision to become an Ayurvedic practitioner. Moving to Nevada City to attend CCA and pursue my passion has been a dream come true – thank you!
I am blown away at how much I have learned. I am so grateful for the whole school. I could not have imagined a better education. Moving into the internship I am both nervous and excited. With my whole heart I thank you.
