At the Joyful Belly School of Ayurvedic Diet and Digestion we offer two professional Ayurvedic certification programs, a professional certification as an Ayurveda Health Counselor or an Ayurveda Digestive Health Coach.
As an Ayurvedic Health Counselor you will be qualified to assess your client's constitution and imbalances and offer education about physical and mental wellness tailored to the client using Ayurveda's paradigm. As an Ayurveda Digestive Health Coach you focus specifically on assessing a client's diet & digestive imbalances to optimize their Ayurvedic diet & digestive health.
Upon completion of either of these courses, you can legally start your Ayurveda consulting practice serving clients. Most practitioners open a private clinical practice. And, there are a variety of professional opportunities & venues where you can support clients as an Ayurvedic Counselor or Coach such as in local health clinics or spas. You can also spread the knowledge of Ayurveda through teaching, writing or hosting workshops and retreats.
Here at Joyful Belly, our courses include business training. We provide every one of our students with a functioning online clinic. We also guide and advise our graduates in setting up your clinic, as well as developing and promoting your business. We show you how to build awareness and credibility for your services.
For a first hand experience of our courses, you can see what our graduates have to say.
