Become a certified Maharishi AyurVeda Wellness Consultant

Ayurveda — which means “science of life” — is a traditional, prevention-oriented system of medicine that addresses the body, mind and environment of the individual in order to provide a holistic health solution.

MUM is the only accredited US university to offer a degree that provides this knowledge. You’ll gain proficiency in the practical applications for your own life and the life of others.

What is Maharishi AyurVeda?

We teach Maharishi AyurVeda℠, a unique form of Ayurveda that has been re-evaluated from a scientific perspective. Extensive clinical experience as well as over 600 scientific research studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Maharishi AyurVeda modalities.

What will I learn?

Our program integrates modern medicine and science with the natural approach of Ayurveda—and teaches you how to use them together to create optimal health.

In the BA program, you’ll learn the basics of a range of natural therapeutic techniques, including:

  • Optimal diet and routine for different individuals
  • Beneficial herbal supplements for specific imbalances and organ systems
  • Traditional purification therapies
  • Principles of biological rhythms and their effects on health

Study online on your own time

Our asynchronous online structure lets you study on your own schedule. The relaxed pace of the classes ensures that you have time to absorb each topic fully without stress.

You’ll connect with students and professors through group exercises, webinars, and more, enjoying collaboration and support from a positive, tight-knit community of like-minded people committed to creating a healthier world.

Learn practical skills

You’ll receive in-depth training on how to conduct Ayurvedic consultations, learning how to use holistic modalities to assess, maintain, and restore balance on different levels of the mind-body system.

You’ll also study the business side of operating your own consulting practice, as well as the legalities involved in running a clinic. You’ll graduate with the practical skills you need to start your own career in wellness consulting.

Financial aid is available for this program. Learn more ➤

On-campus training

As part of the program, you’ll visit our Fairfield, Iowa campus twice for two-week intensive clinical training courses. You’ll learn to conduct Ayurvedic consultations in a clinical setting under the supervision of a licensed doctor and a traditionally trained Ayurvedic physician.

Clinical training on the MUM campus is available only to US students. International students must arrange clinical components at a Maharishi AyurVeda facility–or with a Maharishi AyurVeda practitioner–in their home country or somewhere nearby.
