Ayurvedic Psychology Certification

A healthy, balanced mind creates a sense of peace, contentment, and productivity. All of which contribute to a healthy, happy, productive life; one that benefits the individual and the community.

In this short course, we’ll look at Ayurvedic principles for understanding the influence of the mind in relation to disease, which is often a missing element of western medicine and health regimes. We’ll also look at what influences the mind, and how our lifestyle choices either support or disrupt our mental health.

This simple course is great for anyone who is curious about Ayurveda and would like to develop a deeper understanding of how to practically apply it to their life.


This course has 50 hours of theory study, inclusive of assessments.
Students have the opportunity to complete additional live practical learning hours via The Dinacharya Clinic.

“This was my first real foray into studying anything to do with psychology since high school. I found it so practical! I know that Ayurveda is a lifelong journey of learning, discovering things about my body, mind, senses, the environment and how they work, etc, but this felt like such a clear, concise explanation with call to actions and techniques that can really be put into practice!” – J Stokes
