Ayurveda is an elegant, user-friendly system of medicine. It is a sister science to yoga and evolved in India for thousands of years before making its appearance here in the West. Ayurveda gives us the guidelines necessary to live in harmony with nature’s rhythms, and in doing so, heal our bodies, minds and hearts.

Now enrolling for Ayurveda Embodied: Learn, Practice, Heal with Emmie Stamell and Heather Vaughan, C. Ay.

This is your initiation to a lifetime of study. We invite you on this journey of learning, cultivation, refining as we continue our own. As students of Dr. Vasant Lad, we are committed to offering the depths of wisdom Ayurveda has to offer, beginning with philosophical roots and moving into the manifestation of health and disease. Heather and Emmie have been studying Ayurveda for 15 years, and practicing for over a decade. We are thrilled to share this program—a labor of love—from our hearts to yours.

Ayurveda Embodied is a 9-month, in-depth online Ayurvedic studies program.

The 3 modules are each 3 months long and can be purchased a la carte or as a whole, for a discount.

Each module includes theory, practice, a sanskrit shloka (chant), a guided meditation, and suggested readings.

  • Module 1 (May 21-July 30) will cover cosmology, the doshas, and intro to self-treatment based on prakruti-vikruti paradigm and dinacharya (daily routine).

  • Module 2 (August 6-October 29) includes seasonal kala chikitsa, assessment and treatment of agni (digestion) and ama (toxic by-products).

  • Module 3 (November 5- January 27, 2020) covers Ayurvedic pharmacology, manas (the mind), srotamsi (energy channels), and prana.


Who is this for? It’s for anyone who wishes to improve their health and quality of life. You do not need prior knowledge of Ayurveda. This program will serve you immeasurably well for the rest of your life, as you learn to be your own best healer. It’s empowering, life-changing wisdom that we are honored to share in this way! If you are already versed in Ayurveda but have not attended a training program, this will deepen your knowledge.

What’s the format? Enrollment ends May 21, 2019. The program format is 2, 90-minute pre-recorded lectures and 1, 60-minute live Q&A session via video chat per month. Access to lectures is provided on designated days (generally the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month), and the real-time Q&A session time will be determined based on participant availability. (Q&A session is always recorded so you can watch at your leisure if you can’t make it live). There will be a Facebook group for discussion and questions, which Heather and Emmie will monitor twice weekly.
