Continuing Education

NAMA and Yoga Alliance

Professionals from many health-related fields come to us for continuing education and we are honored to contribute to the growth of any and all wellness paths. Ayurveda has much to share with all healing traditions.

Drop-in students seeking continuing education are welcome! The National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) accepts all of our Ayurveda Foundation Program and Ayurveda Immersion Program courses (both live webinars and recorded courses) for PACE credits. Interestingly, Yoga Alliance (YA) continues to accept our Ayurveda Foundation Program for CE credits. Both trade associations believe that continued learning and growth are paramount to the maintenance of high standards in their professions. See the NAMA and YA requirements below.

How to get NAMA/YA credits for our courses: first start by exploring our calendar of live webinar events and course recordings. See links below. Register for a course of your choice, attend the live webinar or stream the course recording, and finally pass the online exam with a score of 70% or higher (take it as many times as you need to pass). We will send you a Certificate of Completion which you can submit to NAMA or YA.

NAMA PACE Requirements

All Sevanti Institute live webinar and course recordings are accepted for PACE credits. Choose a course that suits your needs, purchase, attend or stream, pass the online exam, and submit the Certificate of Completion for PACE credits. It's that simple.

Professional Members are required to complete a total of 30 credits each 2-year cycle. Each cycle begins on January 1 of an even year (e.g., 1/1/2022) and ends on December 31 of the following odd year (e.g., 12/31/23). Please note that the 2020-2021 PACE cycle deadline was extended to June 2022 as an exception, however, this does not affect the start and end date of the 2022-2023 PACE cycle.

Professional Members may earn their PACE credits from PACE Listed courses, and from non-PACE (i.e., non-listed) workshops, seminars, conferences and courses. To receive credits for non-PACE programs, submit your credits in the “Non-Listed” categories.

All Sevanti Institute courses are classified as "Topics in Ayurveda" according to NAMA PACE regulations. These would include courses in Ayurvedic practice management, Ayurvedic patient/client support, Ayurvedic approach to specific disease conditions, Ayurvedic nutrition, herbology, pathophysiology, Ayurvedic philosophy, lifestyle, and Ayurvedic cooking to name a few. Courses AWC 1-4 and 7-23 are accepted by NAMA for PACE credits.

You can earn credit for pre-recorded/self-paced coursework that is completed during the current PACE cycle, regardless of when the course was purchased. Credit can only be applied to the cycle in which the pre-recorded/self-paced course was completed.

Yoga Alliance CE Requirements

Our Level 1 Ayurveda Foundation Program (42-hrs) continues to be accepted for Yoga Alliance CE credits. We suggest you confirm YA acceptance of our courses prior to purchasing.

Choose a course that suits your needs, purchase, attend or stream, pass the online exam, and submit the Certificate of Completion for YA CE credits. It's that simple.

RYTs and E-RYTs must complete 75 hours of CE within three years from the date of their initial registration.

Because of the lifestyle and ancient Vedic philosophies shared between Yoga and Ayurveda, Sevanti Institute courses fall in the category of "Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle and Ethics." Topics can include, but are not limited to: the study of yoga philosophies and traditional texts; yoga lifestyle and precepts; ethics for yoga teachers (such as those involving teacher-student relationships); understanding the value of teaching yoga as a service and being of service to others through yoga (seva).

We have had many yoga teachers utilize our courses for CE credits at Yoga Alliance, however we recommend confirming each course individually with YA first.
