200 h – Ayurvedic Nutritionist Course
Learn the principles of Ayurvedic nutrition and become a professional in the field.
Go through a personal journey of change experiencing the power of Ayurveda whilst your study.
This is a CMA accredited course to qualify as an Ayurvedic nutritionist.
What is the ideal diet for humans? Are we meat eaters or vegetarians? Is there one ideal diet for all?
Ayurveda can answer these questions and give guidance on how to build an individual diet on a general framework of cyclic living. Whether carnivore, omnivore or herbivore, the Ayurvedic principles of nutrition can be applied to any diet. Whatever the dietary preference, Ayurveda aims at building healthy tissue, increasing vitality and resilience and the priceless self-efficient knowledge of utilising food as preventative medicine. On the flipside, it also gives insights into understanding what, and equally importantly when, food has the potential of becoming toxic and harmful.
This course will dive deep into understanding the food dynamics and how to use food, spices and herbs as medicine. The observations and guidance on the principles of Ayurvedic nutrition are based on specific and personal needs. These will cover, amongst other areas, dietary rotation, the use of seasonally fresh ingredients and portion regulation. The program will provide an exciting dietary experience raising awareness about food energetics and, last but not least, understand the role of digestion in determining nutritional value of food.
The learning journey focuses on understanding the role of feelings in nutrition and the spectrum of effects that link taste to what is commonly referred to in Ayurveda as “dosha”.

Program material, Journaling and 121 Zoom Calls
Once entered the program, the students will go through an initial assessment, which will determine the direction of our personal coaching journey.
Each student will have access to a selection of presentations and videos to learn in theory how Ayurveda works. Combined with their personal practical journey the program will create profound learning experiences to increase confidence in their own practice once graduated.
The students will need to keep a daily journal and schedule a 121 call with Anu on a weekly basis. This is valuable for your own accountability and also have a record of your achieved results. This way students will never have to feel stuck without no one to turn to. With daily check-ins we make sure everyone is on the right path.
The knowledge is assessed at the end of the program. It can be taken anytime after three months of time from the start of your learning journey. Students are also expected to hand in a number of case studies to fully qualify from the program. At completion, we recommend joining the APA – Ayurvedic Professionals’ Association or CMA – Complementary Medical Association.
Friendly Community – Two Group Calls per Week in Zoom
Anu is online in zoom twice a week to connect with the participants of the program, new and old students in a private Facebook group. Participation is recommended but not mandatory. The group sessions are an opportunity to share new knowledge, feelings, ideas and get support from peers.
