“The format of the whole course is very well planned. the journey into Ayurveda dietetics was smooth. Availability of videos and study material helped me a lot, I was confident that I can catch up with the class even if I miss a few. All the resource persons were excellent in their teaching. Tests and assignments helped me to implement and apply what I have learnt in a particular case/question. Thanks for sharing the knowledge of ayurveda dietetics. Looking forward to learn more from you all.”
