About Alandi Ayurveda Gurukula

Welcome to Alandi, where Ayurveda comes to life in a nurturing spiritual context!

We combine the best of new paradigm medical education with the best of the ancient gurukula contemplative pedagogy. Our students acquire the knowledge and tools needed to become Master Ayurvedic Practitioners and administer Ayurvedic healing techniques.

We focus on graduating a few excellent and compassionate healers who are able to connect to their patients on a deeper level, providing truly holistic support to our student's development. This means rigorous intellectual and clinical training, as well as a deep immersion in the spiritual and Vedic context of Ayurveda.


““Alandi Ashram is one of the best centers in America for learning Ayurveda in a spiritual and Vedic context, emphasizing Ayurveda as a yogic discipline for students to both live and practice. Its director, Alakananda, was one of the first western physicians to teach Ayurveda, starting in 1980, and brings her extensive medical background into the work as well.”

— Dr. David Frawley (Pandit Vamadeva Shastri) Yoga and Ayurveda, Director of American Institute of Vedic Studies

We cultivate the seeds of stillness, altruism and compassionate service in our students’ hearts. Honoring the multiple gifts brought by our students’ diversity of learning and experience, we see our students as both teachers and learners. We encourage the creation of a community of sharing and support on all levels. Through the nurturing and rich atmosphere of a gurukula, students will blossom in their personal understandings, interpersonal skills and spiritual practice, as well as in their competence in Ayurveda.

Students enjoy close personal attention from our teacher Alakananda Ma. By sharing meals, taking walks together, and spending abundant time in clinic and pharmacy, our program fosters community and camaraderie among students, with senior students mentoring the newer arrivals. Meditation plays an important part in our learning journey, while chanting, fire ceremonies, movie nights and organic gardening are available as extra-curricular opportunities.

The small, simple, and intimate environment of Alandi provides the benefits of small class learning at the fraction of the cost per credit of other programs. Students truly participate in a family-style environment – sharing clinical apprenticeship time at Alandi Ashram and working together to support the school and each other. The success of this program depends on the seva of students, mutual respect communication, and patience. This unique environment is unlike most training you may have experienced. Be prepared to work hard and to learn and grow in ways you may not expect. Please note: Alandi does not offer residential facilities.

Our multi-modal, experiential, whole-person learning journey is designed to support practical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth. Each facet of the program contributes to the holistic development as a healer. Our unique apprenticeships, offered on a donation basis, consist of a combination of small-group education, experiential study, hands-on practice and daily interactions under the guidance of a compassionate and experienced practitioner who will share her heart and wisdom with each student.
