What is AyurVeda?
Ayurveda — which means “science of life” — is a traditional system of medicine originating in ancient India. Ayurveda is a comprehensive, prevention-oriented system of natural health that addresses the body, mind and environment of the individual in order to provide a holistic cure.
MUM teaches Maharishi AyurVeda℠, a unique form of ayurveda that has been re-evaluated from a scientific perspective for modern day use. Our programs integrate Maharishi AyurVeda with the modern, scientific understanding of health to take an integrated approach to medicine.
To keep our students centered, we incorporate practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique into the daily class schedule. This meditation technique has been proven to reduce stress, enhance clarity of mind, and improve overall health.
By settling down twice a day in meditation, you’ll find yourself feeling more relaxed and learning with ease.
Low-stress Learning and a Healthy Lifestyle
Instead of focusing on 4-5 classes at once, our students dive deeply into one subject at a time in our block system. By taking just one full-time course per month, you’ll learn the knowledge deeply without the stress of balancing multiple classes, exams, and homework assignments.
In addition, MUM’s low student-faculty ratio means that there are daily opportunities for class discussions, hands-on projects, and personalized attention from our knowledgeable faculty.
You’ll also be living a healthy lifestyle and feeling the benefits for yourself. Organic vegetarian meals, single dorm rooms, an ideal routine, and easy access to our rec center are just a few of the healthy elements of our campus that our students enjoy every day.
In the MS program, you’ll learn how to prevent sickness and disease before it even manifests by addressing all six stages of prevention of disease: accumulation, aggravation, dissemination, localization, manifestation, and chronicity.
You’ll also learn the basics of a range of natural therapeutic techniques, including:
- Beneficial herbal supplements for specific imbalances and organ systems
- Panchakarma and other traditional purification therapies
- Principles of biological rhythms and their effects on health
- An introduction to the fundamentals of Traditional Chinese medicine
- Clinical applications of homeopathy

Our program gives students real-world training to practice health care with a scientific but natural approach rooted in the knowledge of Maharishi AyurVeda.
Through lectures, discussions, and live case studies in our on-site Integrative Wellness Center, you’ll receive hands-on practical training and gain the experience you need to practice confidently after graduation.

“The great advantage of the ayurvedic approach is to identify imbalances before they actually manifest as a disease. This can allow the ayurvedic practitioner to take remedial action and reverse the imbalances at an earlier stage of development, thus preventing the emergence of the full-blown disease.”
