“I have completed NWA’s Practioner program as well as several additional courses of study.  This case-based, consciousness-based approach to the process of learning as well as content has inspired me with confidence and skill to apply the ancient teaching of Ayurveda in modern  clinical practice. The fundamentals of Ayurveda were masterfully woven with case studies from the beginning of the practitioner course.  I wholeheartedly recommend this program to the beginning Ayurvedic  student or the more advanced practitioner desiring a refined level of skill in practice.”

“Dr. Paul has created a beautifully organized program that is always interesting, stimulating enough to keep me wanting to move forward, and challenging enough to stretch myself out of my comfort zone. I am a chiropractor and after only eight weeks am already able  to implement  pulse diagnosis, herbal therapies, recipes and other strategies into what I can provide for my practice members. 

– Heidi Chapnick, D.C


“I am extremely delighted with the New World Independent Study Ayurveda Practitioner Program.  The course material is excellent, well organized and easy to understand.  Dr. Paul Dugliss is an awesome teacher – knowledgable, insightful, professional, kind, thoughtful and informative. The Independent study format has been great for me, as I travel and continue to work in my existing career.  The format allows me to further enhance, increase my skills and incorporate the knowledge right away  at a pace that is ideal for me.  

– With appreciation and gratitude,  Valma Brenton – Baja, Mexico


“As a licensed health care practitioner I can attest to the quality of the training in New World Ayurveda.  Dr Dugliss engages each student in a way in which they are immediately immersed in hands on assessment, diagnosis and management. What was valuable to me was his attentiveness to the importance of SAFE use of herbs in the dynamic environment in which a client may also be taking medications from their physician, or using other herbs on their own.  I treasure the training I received with New World Ayurveda.”

– Lori Nelson, ARNP, Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner


“I live in Wyoming and was working part-time so I could not travel to classes at a great distance on the weekends. Then I found New World Ayurveda and Dr. Dugliss – the perfect fit for me! There are two live study groups per week which are available to the independent study students to ask questions and receive guidance. It was even possible to pay for the course over the next year as I studied! Dr. Dugliss is so knowledgeable and I have learned so much from his course  - in my own home and on my own time. Thank you so much for this opportunity! ” 

– Kathy Hudson


“The case-based approach and consciousness model made for a smooth transition to my own practice.  I felt prepared with enough skill and knowledge to begin with the confidence that I was able to offer worthy service to my clients. Not only have I gained valuable knowledgeable into this vast science through the coursework, but I have advanced my own consciousness and increased my light.  In the final measure that is what I truly can offer to others.”

– Rhonda Egidio, PhD, Ayurveda Practitioner and Professor of Education.


“I became a student of NWA in 2008 and haven’t stopped learning since. I completed a practioner program and have a budding Ayurvedic practice. People tell me my energy and demeanor belie my age – and I tell them – its Ayurveda. It will change your life. And as a student of Ayurveda, NWA will be that force of change.”

– R. LeMay, Ayurvedic Health Pracioner – Tula Deva Ayurveda
