The Ayurvedic Wellness Practitioner 1000-hour certification is based on the second goal of Ayurveda – Aaturasya Vikara Prashamanam (Disease Management). In this program, the education emphasis is on the disease process and Ayurvedic management of the stages of disease. A certification of completion is awarded after the 1000 hours are completed.
The AWP curriculum is designed to help students in advanced clinical study of the foundations of theory and practice by building on the skills learned in the AWC program. At this level, students are taught and trained in clinical assessment of the disease process, the pathways of disease and management protocols in different stages of disease. With guided references to Ayurvedic texts, presentations, and case studies, the students gain confidence and consistency in understanding the etiological factors that contribute to the nature and structure of any disease. With this knowledge, they will become skilled independent practitioners adept at creating management plans for different stages of disorders.
