Dear Prospective Student,
We invite you to begin your study of Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy with SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine: Thai Yoga Center. Students are always telling us what a wondrous and transformational experience this study brings. Why? Because in studying classically based healing arts and sciences and practicing them as well that you will come to understand yourself and others in new and profound ways. You will come to realize that the human being is governed by the same laws of nature that govern all of life. That the natural laws and principles that govern life and healing have been well understood for ages and have been passed on to us through the teaching and ceremonies of the Oklevueha Native American Church of SomaVeda (ONACS) and the indigenous, traditional natives peoples and Native American’s of North and South America as well as the indigenous traditional “Science of Life”, Ayurveda. By practicing the hands on and actual clinical applications of the Yogic therapies derived from the classical traditions you will learn how to use these principles of nature to create balance within yourself and others who seek your help in creating optimal wellness and longevity.
It is our sincere desire to make this great wisdom of Native American Healing practices and Classical Ayurveda and it’s practical methods such as Traditional Thai Ayurveda, SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy accessible to students around the world. We do this by offering convenient, cost-effective opportunities for education and training. Our 525 Hour SomaVeda® Ayurvedic Wellness Practitioner Certificate (AWP: NAMA Approved) training program, The 1008 Hour SomaVeda® Ayurveda Yoga Therapists Certificate (AAPNA Approved) and the Independent Study option both allow you to study Ayurveda without the need to travel frequently or relocate, saving you time and money. We’re often asked why our tuition is so low and our tuition scholarship programs so generous?
Why are we at the ONACS Thai Yoga Center being so generous?
First of all we are a 501c(3) compliant, Florida State registered Not for Profit Religious/ Church/ Ecclesiastical Organization with a Charitable, Education and Service Mission!
Second. Anyone who has ever taken class with Aachan, Dr. Anthony James will tell you he is nothing if not generous! Aachan wants the Practitioner and Instructor programs to be the best, the most intensive and comprehensive trainings of this kind offered anywhere in the world! It’s not just about listing and memorizing techniques and so called “trigger points”. Trigger points are good information… however, we believe to truly handle pain and suffering the fundamental dissonance of essence and being manifesting the pain and suffering must be addressed. It’s about the true teaching and transmission of knowledge and being via a living master associated with living lineage and active lines of transmission.
Our program is not so much about technique as about transformational processes using the traditional tools we have been given permission to use. And use we will. Aachan says “Be what you know”. In our programs you will learn and practice living the practice.
We have priced our training programs with the intention of eliminating tuition cost as a barrier to study because we believe everyone should have the opportunity to learn this life-changing knowledge and that it should not be reserved for a select and privileged few.
