FAQ


➤ IS THERE A PRE-REQUISITE?

The course does best with students who have some background in Ayurveda and understand its prime concepts (doshas, dhatus, subdoshas). 

It also helps if you are familiar with the basic language of Yoga and its main practices from asana to meditation, including some background in Yoga philosophy.

If you have any doubt as to your ability to handle the course material, first go over the course syllabus and see if you can grasp the topics involved. If you can understand the concepts in the book Yoga and Ayurveda by Dr. David Frawley, that is a good sign you are ready for the course.


➤ WHAT IS THE CERTIFICATION EARNED?

Successful course completion earns a 500-hour joint Yoga and Ayurveda Wellness Consultant Certification from The American Institute of Vedic Studies (AIVS) and AT THE CORE.

This is not a certification to teach Yoga Asana. Though, this study will certainly elevate a Yoga Teacher's knowledge and understanding of Asana.

➤ I DON’T REALLY WANT TO TEACH YOGA OR AYURVEDA TO OTHERS. WHY WOULD I TAKE THIS COURSE?  

Yoga is a JOURNEY and a DESTINATION that we all can benefit from to help us establish a strong and lasting sense of mental peace, emotional resilience, and physical immunity.  

This course gives us an amazing introductory roadmap for that journey along with some accountability and discipline (which we all find useful from time to time), a supportive community (like-minded others nourish the soul) and helpful guides along the way. 

As a personal wellness experience, this Yoga and Ayurveda study program is profound. 


➤ HOW IS THIS COURSE DIFFERENT THAN THE DISTANCE LEARNING COURSE ON THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF VEDIC STUDIES WEBSITE?

The AIVS distance learning Yoga, Ayurveda, Mantra & Meditation Course is a 300-hour Certification.

This 500-hour certification course includes an additional 200 hours of live online mentoring support with Vedic Counselors Yogesh and Shankari Van Acker.  

This mentoring support includes assignment grading and feedback, four personal Yoga & Ayurvedic Consultations, online instructional Workshops, Lectures, and Classes (including Asana, Pranayama, Mantra, Meditation, Marma Therapy and Aroma Therapy).

Plus additional Yoga Practice Principles online classes with Yoga and Ayurveda Wellness Consultant Kim Fulton to supporting your exploration and integration of the knowledge.


➤ IS THIS COURSE COMPLETELY ONLINE?

Yes! You will find all the AIVS lessons, video and audios from Dr. David Frawley in the online AIVS content.  AT THE CORE live lesson classes will be online.  Personal consultations and mentoring with Shankari and Yogesh can be done online or in person. 

Additional, optional in-person study opportunities with AT THE CORE such as Yoga, Ayurveda, Mantra and Meditation Retreats and Workshops will be offered throughout the program.


➤ HOW MANY HOURS A WEEK DO I NEED TO COMMIT TO THIS COURSE?  

Each week we will have a 2-hour online class discussing the lesson of the week.  Along with a 90-minute Yoga Practice Principles class for experiential explorations.  

Additional time for reading and working on lesson exercises and exams will be required if you wish to pursue the 500-hour certification.

We will take integration breaks between course modules.  There are fewer classes in December, March and over the summer.


➤ HOW ARE YOGESH AND SHANKARI VAN ACKER QUALIFIED TO TEACH AND MENTOR THIS COURSE?

Yogesh and Shankari have been studying and practicing Yoga and Ayurveda for over 15 years.  They have completed Yoga and Ayurveda Certification Courses with The Forest Academy and The American Institute of Vedic Studies.  

For over 10 years they have been dedicated students of Vamadeva Shastri (Dr. David Frawley) and Yogini Shambhavi Devi, studying and working with them around the world.  They live the knowledge of Yoga and Ayurveda in their everyday life and use the practices and teachings to support their personal health and that of their son.  

As Vedic Counselors and certified Yoga and Meditation Therapists, over the last 12 years, they have gained much practical knowledge and understanding working with hundreds of clients and students from all backgrounds and walks of life.  This gives them a compassionate and accountability supporting approach with experiences of deep healing and transformation.


➤ HOW CAN THIS COURSE HELP ME WITH MY PERSONAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS?

First, we must be our own student and client.  Through personal consultations and integrative exercises, we help you to understand and unravel your own journey of healing through Yoga and Ayurvedic purification and rejuvenation practices.   


➤ HOW CAN THIS COURSE HELP ME ESTABLISH AND UPHOLD A STRONG YOGA/AYURVEDIC STUDIO/CLINIC?

Study the Yoga of business to thrive in the business of Yoga.  Throughout the course, Yogesh and Shankari share their years of experience directing a successful Yoga and Ayurveda School, Studio and Clinic.  Practical knowledge around working with clients and students, offering consultations, workshops, and courses, giving expression to the knowledge and the “business” of Yoga and Ayurveda are explored.


➤ WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO PURCHASE OUTSIDE OF THE AIVS AND AT THE CORE FEES/TUITION.  

There is no additional reference material required.  

The AIVS component includes five on-line sections and around forty lessons (over eight hundred pages of course material) plus audios and videos from course author Dr. David Frawley.  You have 3 years to access this material.

The AT THE CORE mentoring includes our online library of additional references such as the recordings from our 35+ live online classes, 20+ Yoga Practice Principles class recordings and additional articles and relevant support material.  You have unlimited access to this material.

There are recommended books you may wish to purchase.  And optional in-person Retreat opportunities throughout the course.


➤ WELL, IT LOOKS GREAT, BUT IT IS A BIT PRICEY....

We know and we understand that feeling!  

But our deepest experience is that the investment into personal WELL-BEING (improved relationships, better sleep, clarity, calm, immunity and reduced pain, anxiety, doubt, procrastination, frustration, fear, anger, and resistance) is a meaningful investment in yourself and your family.

Through the benefits experienced, profound dividends are gained as your valuable resources are saved. And not just financial resources, but also time and effort as EFFICIENCY in life increases.
