There are limited spots in this intimate program.


Supported Learning For Real Life

Your training program includes audio lectures (like a podcast). This is intentional to allow you to listen while you walk around your neighborhood, commute to work, clean the house or lay down in Savasana. You'll be provided with written notes, self-study questions, self-reflection prompts, guided practices and suggestions for integration.

Your assignments include group discussion posts to connect with other students, client case studies and a project of your choosing.

One Year of Personalized Support

The year is broken down into four three-month quarters. Each quarter you meet with Angela for a personalized session. The first session is an Ayurvedic consultation. The following three sessions can be used for Ayurvedic counseling, mentoring or a combination of both.

What students are saying...

The following reviews are from an anonymous survey administered by Stockton University where Angela teaches Ayurveda as part of the School of Health Sciences.

"Professor Perger is a wonderful instructor who exhibits much passion for Ayurveda and holistic health in general. She was always willing to answer questions and explain the course content in further detail as needed. She also provided many opportunities to apply Ayurvedic practices outside of class and reflect our experiences through our assignments. I would absolutely recommend taking this course to anyone interested!"

"I wish they could clone this professor."

"Professor Perger is absolutely amazing. She always provided notes in video form or by use of PDF. She always answered any emails on time with any questions one may have. Her assignments were always very engaging and quite interesting. I adored this class and I would definitely take it again!"

"Professor Perger was an amazing professor. Her course was very well organized and she was readily available for any questions/concerns. I would definitely take another course taught by her. I took this class for my minor which I was moderately interested in, and this course definitely ignited my passion for holistic health."
