Maharishi AyurVeda is a comprehensive, prevention-oriented approach to healthcare based on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s revival of AyurVeda, the traditional system of natural medicine in India. AyurVeda or “Science of Life”. is a complete science of natural health addressing mind, body, and environment all based on consciousness.

The Master of Science in Maharishi AyurVeda and Integrative Medicine offers an online Master’s degree to licensed health care practitioners in the physiology, pathology, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the 8 organ systems from the perspective of Maharishi AyurVeda, as well as from other systems of natural medicine.

Special features of the program

The curriculum integrates the current modern understanding of disease and treatment with the ancient Vedic understanding, as recently revived by our international faculty, with the inspiration of the university’s founder, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

The program enlivens the inner intelligence of the body, through daily practice of Transcendental Meditation. This is the foundation of Maharishi AyurVeda, which is a consciousness-based approach to health.

The three-year part-time online program provides a flexible schedule for busy professionals to gain the knowledge and apply it in their practices. During the three years there are also five days each year of in-residence training in the clinical applications of this knowledge on the Fairfield campus.

This is a unique opportunity to integrate the best of modern medicine with the best of evidence-based natural medicine in a flexible, systematic program.
