Starting Your Journey at Sevanti Institute

Scroll Down To Explore

This is your healing journey.

No healing journey ever fails when nourished by self-knowledge and love.

Sevanti Institute was created to offer teachings from the Ayurvedic traditions as a resource on your healing path. We allow drop-in students to most of our courses and take great pride in training Ayurvedic Wellness Counselors to spread these teachings and assist others on their healing journeys. Ayurveda will bring a crystal clear view, personalization, and logic to your self-care practice, but as a personal sacred practice (sadhana) it should be rooted in authenticity (sadvritta), self-knowledge (sva-vritta), and love. You are important to us. We at Sevanti are as dedicated to your journey as we are to our own.

If you have questions about our programs, feel free to reach out to us directly, any time, to answer questions, help with registration, or just to talk.

Wishing you all the best on your healing path.

Ayurveda Education is Way More Than VPK

We know you have a choice for your education.

Our vision is simple. A flower will turn its face to follow the warm rays of the sun as it crosses the sky. What inspires the flower, inspires us. Sevanti Institute was ignited by the passion of sharing the wisdom of nature as a force for personal wellbeing and social change while holding onto the dual flames of tradition and quality instruction. We believe that Ayurveda is a universal insight that must be applied at the personal level to be true. Ayurveda teaches that an intelligent equilibrium lies within us and that one must remain vigilant to our unique nature to remain in balance.

The Sevanti Institute curriculum is focused exclusively on the Ayurveda Wellness Counselor practice because we believe that education and self-awareness are the keys to sustainable wellness and enlightened self-care.

We are a passionate group of Ayurveda educators who love to share the Wisdom of Life with those who are ready to receive it. Living true to ourselves, authentically, is our dharma. We chose to live each day naturally, mindfully, vibrantly, and true to our nature. We believe that the greatest medicine is derived from the body’s natural intelligence, and that true healing comes from self-knowledge, new beginnings, healthy foods, and balanced lifestyles. We believe that prevention stands supreme even to the most advanced medical disciplines.
