Additional Study in Ayurveda, Yoga and Vedic Astrology
Below are listed additional study and treatment options, including clinical Ayurveda programs. This is for students who want to expand their studies as well as for those looking for Ayurvedic treatment.
Note that Vamadeva (Acharya Frawley) is focusing his tutorial work on teaching Vedic mantras and philosophy to a few select students, including higher Yoga teachings. But he is open to student requests.
We encourage students to work with a number of schools and teachers, as well as join a number of associations to expand their connections with the Vedic community. Note also our Resource section in this regard.
