Certified Holistic Health Counselor
Our study program is the first of its kind in the United States which integrates Western nutritional concepts with traditional Ayurvedic principles. Using this approach, we ensure a comprehensive study of the effects of nutrition on the human body, mind, and consciousness. The course is conducted by Dr. Naina Marballi, B.S.A.M. D.A.C. (Ayurveda Acharya), who has practiced Ayurveda and Ayurvedic Esthetics in India and the United States for over 40 years.
Our program is a 150-hour course designed to bring you into a higher state of awareness of the connection between balanced nutrition and continued well-being. By nurturing these principles in each student, we contribute to a cycle of balance and harmony that eventually benefits everyone.
Ayurvedic Nutrition encompasses not only nutrition, but also the ideal balance and combination of breathing exercises, rest and sleep, posture and meditation, and healing through the five senses.

As we are all aware, we are in the middle of a global pandemic. We have outlined the above course based on the rules and regulations in place currently. We have transformed our program from being solely in-person instruction to a combination of in-person and online.
During the in-person classes, it will be obligatory to wear masks and to wash your hands upon entry into the classroom. We ask that everyone respect and maintain social distancing to the best of their ability. As cooking is at the core of our Ayurvedic training, we will be cooking in the class in order to demonstrate Ayurvedic methods and eat together.
We will require all students to sign a Covid-19 release form.
