About this Course

Shakti Ayurveda School – Level 2

The Level 2 Ayurvedic Health Counselor certification is a 300-hour yearlong study for graduates of the level 1 program who want to deepen their application of feminine-form medicine for an even greater impact on their growth, and the well-being of their clients.

Level 2 Begins in March | Enrollment is Now Open


The Program

Level 2 - Ayurvedic Health Counselor

The Divine Feminine has called.

She wants you, your friends, family and communities to return to the simplest, but most powerful, ways of caring for themselves.

In Level 1 you learned about the HER rhythms, the cycles of nature, how to use food, and the elements to become the version of you that shines the brightest. Together we did deep work, unearthing what is hidden beneath the layers formed by our daily interactions and behaviors. You’re starting to hear the whispers underneath all the noise.

You’ve also learned how to take this wisdom into your community. To educate in the ways of diet and lifestyle that have the potential to drastically change the trajectory of a person’s life.

This ancient science is vast, and we go further still.

Level 2 is an opportunity to learn about the pathology. How dis-ease moves through the layers of the body – subtle to gross. We’ll further explore the ways in which we can read the messages being shared to deeply support each unique individual in finding balance.

You’ll learn additional tools for growth and health to guide yourself and your clients into more spaciousness for becoming. Together we’ll hone your intuition and provide structure for the potential of this knowledge with you at the helm to flourish.

This 300-hour program is perfect for the healer looking to interact in more depth with 1-on-1 clients, and into becoming a conduit for more radical change to take place.
