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.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda isn’t a fad or a dietit’s a way of life. Ayurveda takes a mind-body-spirit approach to your health, addressing the health and well-being of your “whole person” to help you live life to the fullest.   

In the Chopra Health Program, you’ll gain a toolkit of proven personalized practices around healthy nutrition, mindful movement, and aligning with our natural biological rhythms to help create healthy daily habits and routines. And then you’ll learn how to teach those tools to others to help them create a personalized health plan based on their dosha.   

What is the Chopra Health Program? 

This 16-week online, interactive health certification program is an in-depth education on how to use the infinite wisdom of nature to optimize biological rhythms, digestion, energy, and focus based on the centuries-old healing system of Ayurveda. 

Ayurveda has been used for centuries to help people better understand themselves and what they need to thrive from a mental, physical, and spiritual standpoint. It is an incredibly special and little-known personalized healing system that changes lives. Deepak Chopra has spent over 30 years researching and teaching these powerful practices. 

The Chopra Health Program is your chance to become certified in this highly niched, fast-growing health system, incorporate its powerful practices into your own life, and share them with others any way you choose. 

What You Get

Gain confidence to offer 1-on-1 and group consultations on living an Ayurvedic lifestyle.  

Tangible practices on nutrition, movement, simple guided meditation, and more that you can incorporate into your own life and teach to others.  

Program Breakdown 

The Chopra Health Program consists of two core modules, with 16 total interactive sessions, as well as: 

  • Health Foundations, a self-guided course where you’ll learn the basics of Ayurveda and discover your dosha. 
    * Completing Health Foundations is a pre-requisite to the Health Enrichment and Certification modules. 
  • Weekly live Q&A webinars with Chopra Educators so you can ask questions and learn from your peers

  • Weekly office hours to receive program support and get your questions answered

  • Monthly online group meditations to connect with peers and educators around the world in the stillness of meditation

Wait... what’s a dosha? 

Kind of like an astrology sign or personality type—but so much more—your dosha is based on the proportion of certain qualities that you have in your nature, represented by the elements of Space, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth.  

There are 3 doshas which show up different when in and out of balance:  

All three doshas are present in everyone, but in different combos and ratios. 

Knowing your dosha can help you: 

  • Understand your natural tendencies in your mind and body 
  • Recognize when your dosha becomes unbalanced based on signs and symptoms 
  • Help you make choices and incorporate habits that keep you emotionally balanced and physically healthy

What makes Ayurveda so powerful? 

Sound complicated? It’s not, thanks to the personalized roadmap that Ayurveda provides. By following this centuries-old proven method, you can unlock powerful physical, mental, and spiritual benefits, including:  

  • Reduce anxiety and depression 
  • Lower blood pressure 
  • Improve digestion 
  • Calm the mind 
  • Align with your body’s natural rhythms 
  • Nourish the skin 
  • Energize your body and mind 

When it comes to your wellness, it can be overwhelming to figure out what your body and mind need, especially since there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Can you imagine how rewarding it would be to help someone find those answers they’ve been searching for? 

If so, keep reading about how the Chopra Health program can help you do that.

Being new to Ayurveda, I found this content engaging and easy to follow. I kept saying, ‘Yes, this makes so much sense.’ It was a huge aha moment for me personally and I’m excited to teach others how to return to wholeness and balance.

Christina B., Chopra Health Program graduate

What makes this program different? 

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.  

Decades of experience

Top-notch learning 

We’re not new to this! Chopra has been training health instructors for 25 years. Hundreds of thousands of practitioners have learned from us.

Chopra employs top instructional designers and uses a leading learning management system to ensure a premium learning experience.

Global community 

Upon graduation, you'll join the ranks of nearly 2,000 health instructors around the world and become an agent of change.  

Lifetime support 

Graduation is just the beginning. You’ll receive continued business and educational support from Chopra staff to ensure your success.
