We are so excited about our new website that we just want to tell everyone all about it!
The aim of the Learn Living Ayurveda website is to give you access to a vast resource of knowledge and wisdom about the incredible system of Ayurveda that you can use to optimise your health and wellbeing in mind, body and spirit. We spent a good part of 2019 reviewing, revising and redesigning the website, incorporating student feedback to make navigation clearer and easier – and we are really happy with the end result!
Ayurveda is an ancient body of wisdom based on a deep understanding of what it is to be human. It embraces medical science, philosophy, psychology, spiritual understanding as well as astrology and astronomy. Ayurveda is based on the accumulated knowledge and understanding of centuries, yet it is very up to date, offering a practical and effective system of healthcare that covers all aspects of our wellbeing, not just our physical health.
The Learn Living Ayurveda website was originally launched with our core course, Living Wisdom: The Foundations of Ayurveda and by mid-2020 we will be offering A Beginner’s Guide to Ayurveda, shortly followed by Western Herbs from an Ayurvedic Perspective. As well as these unique online courses, Anne is offering a limited number of Ayurvedic apprenticeships each year where students can learn first-hand from Anne in her home, surrounded by her renowned herb garden in the Cotswolds.
‘I am so grateful to be taking this course and deepening my understanding of Ayurveda. I have learned so much about myself and continue to as I move through the course. This has not only helped me to understand myself better and appreciate and honour my needs, but also helped me to understand those around me.’ Julie B, Living Wisdom student.
The Learn Living Ayurveda website has been created by Anne McIntyre who is a Fellow of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, a Member of the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy and a Member of the Ayurvedic Practitioners’ Association. As well as treating patients in her clinic with her unique blend of Ayurveda and Western herbal medicine, Anne has been writing and teaching about herbal medicine and Ayurveda for over three decades. This has inspired her to create a group of online courses which meet the requirements of different groups of students, whether complete beginners or more experienced students. Each online course has been specifically written for this website and the courses have all been carefully designed so that students can progress with confidence at their own pace.
‘I really enjoyed the course! As a life-long student of Ayurveda I imagined this would be a simple formalization of previous knowledge, but I learned SO much and felt that a nice stretch occurred in the boundaries of my understanding.’ Natalie, Living Wisdom student.
