What can I do with these certifications?

Anything you want. You can add this to your existing profession, teach others, start your own business...with Chopra’s reputation and your unique talents, the possibilities are endless. 

We have instructors that start teaching the day after they get certified in a wide variety of settings, including schools, universities, wellness centers, hospitals, and private clinics.  

Some certified teachers offer private, one-on-one instruction, while others teach large groups or lead retreats. Online courses, products, the possibilities are endless.  

Many instructors integrate the teachings and practices of Ayurveda into their existing professional offerings. For example, doctors, chiropractors, yoga instructors, life coaches, and therapists use the tools and teachings of Ayurveda to deepen and expand their work with patients and clients 

Next question: I’m afraid I’m not confident enough to teach.

That’s a good one and let me assure you: you will get more confident as you learn and apply the teachings to your own life. Your direct experience is your best teacher. Once you see the transformation Ayurveda can have on your life, you’ll want to shout it from the rooftops.

What makes your program different? How is Chopra different?

You are joining a global brand committed to making a more just sustainable world through consciousness-based practices. Chopra is on the cutting edge of research and you will have the latest in information and application of these consciousness-based tools. Your reputation linked with Chopra’s–the gold standard in the field of mind-body medicine.  

Finally, you are joining a network of teachers who have been exactly where you are before. They’ll offer support, guidance, and friendship. 

Is the enrichment program interactive? Yes you can look forward to:

The answer is YES! You’ll be: 

  • Working in smaller study groups with the teacher-training faculty 

  • Connecting with peers 

  • Participating in video conferences with master educators 

I have a full-time job. Will these programs fit in my time zone and with my busy life?

Once the enrichment program begins on the scheduled start date, its contents will be released by session. Participants will then log into the sessions remotely as they are released throughout the duration of the program. Which means you can do it anytime and anywhere it’s convenient for you. 

And we have time for one more question. Last one:

What equipment do I need?

The basic equipment needed for the online course is a computer or mobile device, internet access, microphone, speakers, and web camera.

How is this different 
from other coaching 
programs? 

The Chopra Health and Wellness Coaching Program teaches a developmental-based coaching model, whereas other programs are performance based. 

 A Chopra Health and Wellness Coach guides you toward transformation. Instead of simply asking you to identify your goals, outlining a plan for you, and holding you accountable, this type of coaching uses questions and reflections to walk with you on your Hero’s Journey.

Introducing the Chopra Life and Health Coaching Program

Distinguish yourself as a best-in-class health and wellness authority and help others thrive. Our program takes an integrative approach to health and well-being by leveraging the latest in evolutionary and positive psychology, life coaching, and the 5,000-year-old wisdom traditions modernized and taught for over 30 years by the world-renowned voice in mind-body science, Dr. Deepak Chopra™.

What You'll Get

Practicality 

Community 

Confidence 

You’ll learn, practice, and leave with a solid foundation to use any way you choose.  

You’ll form a global network that you can tap into for ongoing growth and support.

You’ll learn a combo of psychology coaching and Vedic philosophy boiled down into a simple toolkit.

A Session-by-Session Overview

The Chopra Life and Health Coaching Program is a blended online program that weaves together the Chopra pillars of health, meditation, coaching methodologies, and fundamentals, and the science behind them. 

A Chopra Health and Wellness Coach asks questions that help you reflect on where you are and where you want to be in order to help you better understand yourself. That self-awareness helps you grow in the ways you need to in order to achieve any goal you set for yourself, sustain it, and re-evaluate it through the ebbs and flows of your life. 

You’ll help your clients connect lifestyle changes to a greater sense of purpose. It’s total health and well-being package.

It’s rare that a single program can affect you everyday in so many different aspects of your life, and the Chopra coaching program did that for me.

Jarrett, Previous Chopra Coaching Student

What makes the Chopra Life and Health Coaching Program unique? 

Ayurveda is not new. In fact, it’s been practiced for centuries. Ayurveda is believed to date back to over five thousand years to ancient India. References to Ayurveda and its sister science, Yoga, appeared in ancient scholarly texts called “the Vedas.”  

However, Deepak’s life’s work and teachings have helped Ayurveda to gain notoriety in our modern world. And that’s what makes the Chopra Health Program so special. This is your chance to immerse yourself in a curriculum based on the life’s work of Deepak Chopra.

This was deeper than any program I’ve done before. It changed me. It explained a whole lot about who I am. The purpose statement I created in the program is now my north star. It keeps bringing me back to where I’m supposed to be.

Your life will change. You will make changes to your health. Be more conscious about how you’re living. Become more present. You gain patience. You evolve. And then you help others evolve, too.

This is a kind, loving, space. The people I met through it are amazing. If I wanted to, I could reach out to someone if I were in their area. If I needed a new client they would help me find one. Because of these connections, I don’t have to figure it all out alone.
