About This Event


The goal of the Vedic Counseling course is to help serious Yoga Teachers, Ayurvedic practitioners, and Vedic Science practitioners to acquire additional, practical skills to help their students or clients on the path of positive living, high thinking, and self-realization.

The Sivananda Yoga Farm has for many years been the leading forum for the teaching of the vedic sciences:

Ayurveda (Science of healing)

Vastu (science of space and place)



This is the first time we attempt to offer these sciences together in a comprehensive program. The program comprises of 350 hours of residential study and is offered in 6 modules of 5 days each (except the first module which is 10 days) with expert teachers in these vedic fields.

The study will be spread in a one and a half year span.
