Student Testimonials

The School of Ayurveda takes the vastness this ancient holistic science and simplifies it into language so easy to digest it feels like opening one’s eyes to reality. Head Instructor and school founder Kathryn Stoerzbach distills esoteric concepts to elementary foundations of elements, tastes, and senses. Throughout the program I saw expansion into the broad language of Ayurveda, followed by a condensation into foundational language. It has made it so I feel confident in my professional massage practice to incorporate Ayurvedic language to my clients, bringing their oftentimes confusing pathologies to easily understood elemental principles. The School of Ayurveda’s Level 1 program is a wonderfully intimate setting with a compassionate, humorous, wise and beautifully human teacher who gently guides the student to proficiency. I highly recommend the program to anyone looking to broaden their understanding of the world through a holistic and ancient lens.

Nathalie Aguirre
L.M.T.; Certified Ayurvedic Health Coach

Taking The School of Ayurveda's Level I course has been a life shifting moment for me. This course gave me the foundational understanding of the history and depth of this ancient practice while bringing it into a contemporary world. As someone passionate about holistic healing I resonated with the perspectives Ayurveda shares and the continual growth of study inevitable when learning ancient healing arts. Kathryn is an incredible mentor and guide through this process, her relationship with the topics shines through and teaching truly is her passion work. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in individual self healing or to start on a path of toward practitionership. This opportunity was an incredible gift and I would do it all over again if I could.
