Alchemy Through Ayurveda

Our Signature Online Ayurveda Self-Healing Program by Acharya Shunya

A Complete Program to Optimize Your Health, Prevent Disease, and Live with Vitality and Joy.

Maybe you are tired of pain, illness, or a sense of imbalance in your life. We get it—the common mentality of “battling” against pain and illness is exhausting. We are here to do more than just fight back against what’s ailing you. Instead, through the purest and most authentic teaching of Ayurveda, we are here to help you nurture your health and awaken to a new way of being. Because as long as we are alive, health is possible. 

Health is an innate capacity that can be brought back through the right ingredients. Our course will help you to express these ingredients in balance. Your health awakening will take place by learning about: food, lifestyle, methods to calm your mind, spirituality, and more.


Through our course you will learn:

Whole-self healing, including rare insights on embodying the dharma of Ayurveda, which supports the healing of the psyche from trauma and anxiety, leading to the emergence of health.

Lifestyle practices that evoke self-love and self-care.

Traditional healing recipes that boost immunity and overall health while delighting your tastebuds.

Freedom from various physical, mental, emotional and spiritual challenges.

The art of eating right, thinking right, and loving yourself right, to become vital, vibrant, happy and whole again!

presented by

Acharya Shunya

Acharya is a truth-teller who facilitates authenticity, self-remembrance, and divine feminine pathways to awakening within. The first female head of her ancient spiritual lineage from India, Acharya Shunya distills the most ancient of the  Nondual-Vedic-Yogic-Ayurveda teachings to their luminous essence.


Ayurveda is catching on as a trend, which is exciting. But this growth also leaves room for inauthenticity and surface-level teachings. If you want a deep understanding of Ayurveda that comes from authentic teachings rooted in spirituality, our course is the best choice for you. In our program, you will be under the guidance of master guru Acharya Shunya, whose teachings go back to the roots of Ayurveda.

Rich Tradition

Acharya is an Ancient Vedic lineage holder with a family of unbroken lineage teaching classic Ayurveda dating back 2000 years. She is not just a person who passed a certification course—rather, she is the best possible teacher you can find today because of the preparation offered by her ancestors.

Published Author


Acharya published Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom, the bestselling book introducing people to Ayurveda included in curriculums on Ayurveda around the world. Course teachings bring the book alive, taking everything you have read further and helping you integrate Ayurveda into your lifestyle.

Recognized Leader


Acharya is a respected master across the globe. She is the Ayurveda Advisor to Government of India on International Ayurveda Affairs, Leader of Ayurveda Education Policy at The World Ayurveda Congress, and is the Former President of the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine (CAAM).

Scriptural Authority


Authentic Ayurveda is not just about the body—it has sacred spiritual Vedic roots that integrate often forgotten teachings of psychology and mental health. Our deep teachings go beyond the surface and use scriptural teachings to help you nurture health in the whole self. In addition, our course has integrations with the sister teachings of yoga and vedanta.

See what our students are saying:

The changes you make in your life as you take our course will lead to self-healing. This isn’t magic, but rather it is rooted in science. Our students love to share about their journey putting Ayurveda to work in their lives.

What I found was such a pleasant surprise and relief that I finally got the answers I was looking for on my road to recovery. Learning about the impact of my past habits and emotions, and how they have hindered my health was huge. Naturally, I signed up for deeper studies with the source of this knowledge; Acharya Shunya herself!




At the beginning of this course we were presented with a quote which said "When diet is correct, medicine is of no need; when diet is incorrect, medicine is of no use."  Throughout this past year this line has begun to make more and more sense to me on a deeper and deeper level.  By implementing simple diet and lifestyle practices I have seen dramatic improvement in my energy levels, mental well being and overall health.


I have great gratitude to my Acharya for the wisdom shared through the heart-based teaching of her Ayurveda self-healing course. It was an invitation to a healthy lifestyle, deeper connection to our own self as a microcosm, which is part of the macrocosm. Through each class a deeper understanding was revealed for a conscious lifestyle in harmony with nature, seasons, time of the day and our own constitution. 


When I began my Ayurveda Self-care studies, I knew that I was fortunate to be studying with a teacher who could help people radiate from the inside out.  As I learned and applied the basics of Ayurveda, always through the spiritual lens of Vedanta and Yoga, I saw my health transform.
