The Ayurvedic Institute

Established in 2010, this institute initially started from the foothills of Himalayas. The institute’s now building a new London wellness campus.

This institute’s primary mission is to teach traditional Yogic Sciences and offer ancient Indian yogic sciences dedicated to enhancing and sustaining life quality and duration. Covering aspects like diet, lifestyle, meditation, postures, breathing exercises, herbal practices, as well as cleansing and rejuvenation programs, Yogic Sciences are viewed as a self-healing discipline for the body, mind, and spirit.

The educational programs attract a global and diverse student body, spanning various professions and backgrounds. Students frequently express how profoundly transformative their experiences are here, underscoring the authenticity and depth of the offerings. The faculty, headed by an experienced individual with over 40 years in the field, leads the way. Whether attending a brief weekend session or the comprehensive two-year program, students consistently undergo a journey of heightened awareness and self-healing.

The Unity Science Institute is a non-profit center that teaches the principles of Yog Vigyan, the ancient science of life. We provide authentic education that integrates Ayurveda with yoga, Jyotish (Vedic astrology), other healing disciplines, and the individual Self to bring about total health, awareness, and harmony.

Educational Philosophy

Ayurveda is a healing art and a science. Descending from Charaka, Sushruta, and Vagbhata, it is one of apprenticeship in which the student learns from the teacher, who shares knowledge and experiences to assist the student in developing a conceptual framework and fundamental working knowledge.

The Ayurvedic Institute reflects the teaching traditions of ancient India. This tradition gives emphasis to the oral transmission of knowledge by being present with the teacher. It is taught, as the Vedic tradition emphasizes, with practical examples and stories, keeping the integral aspects of the body, mind, and spiritual components intact. It requires soul searching, faith, and trust without proof or guarantee. In its traditional form, the student is expected to trust the teacher to present the subjects in the manner the teacher feels are appropriate. For each of us to develop as practitioners, experiencing this tradition and all its components helps to expand our inner awareness.

Goals

The integration of Ayurveda with modern medicine, yoga, Jyotish (Vedic astrology), other healing disciplines, and the individual Self to bring about total health, awareness, and harmony.

It is the dream of Vasant Lad and the goal of the Ayurvedic Institute to be able to offer a complete program of Ayurvedic study. This program would be similar in content to that taught in the traditional Ayurvedic colleges in India.
