Ayurveda Mental Coach

  • Study Ayurveda and Psychology holistically, practically and online.

  • Learn holistic methods of type-appropriate conversation and stress reduction.

  • Accompany people on their way to more health, happiness and self-fulfillment.

Ayurvedic psychology is like a mirror of the soul: look into it and recognize the true nature of yourself and others.

With the training to become an Ayurveda Mental Coach, you take the first step on your path to psychology and life coaching according to the holistic principles of Ayurveda. You will gain a new understanding of the connections and functions of body, mind and soul. The living knowledge of Ayurvedic psychology will help you to better understand the different constitution types with their changeable and non-changeable personality parts. Based on this, you will fathom the different personality types with their psychological strengths and weaknesses and learn type-appropriate communication techniques that will lead to new insights.

Use the holistic recommendations for a healthy diet and lifestyle including spices, herbs and relaxation techniques to strengthen mental health and balance stress-related complaints.

Those who already work in a healing profession or advise others can complement their own range of therapies with holistic Ayurvedic approaches. In addition, the course is a valuable self-awareness, which gives impulses for your own life.
