Course founder Katie Rose shares: 'So many people ask me where I teach next, or how we can continue the learning journey together … well here is your chance to study with me in your own time! Bhakti Rose is a carefully curated online learning portal for offerings and collaborations around Ayurveda, Yoga and all things Mindful Living.
With 'Ayurveda Goddess', we have created an abundant virtual source of Ayurvedic wisdom, delivered by empowered women living their best lives and ready to support you in living yours.'
A comprehensive online training for women of all ages
Ayurveda Goddess Training is part sacred immersion into the teachings (practice) and part information gathering and lecture based education. During the training you will be refreshed, re-balanced and ready to share what you have absorbed.
We have a strong focus on beautiful presentation, so that as you dive into these teachings, you will get the same ‘bhav’ or sacred feeling as if you were attending an in-person workshop. Course founder Katie Rose shares: 'what has surprised me the most about learning and teaching online is that it really can positively impact the way I’m feeling, just as radically as a real life workshop!'
Bringing ancient wisdom to life
The benefit of learning from home is just that: you are at home! So when we talk about changes to your diet, lifestyle, kitchen and personal beauty regimes it’s all right there in front of you.

A hard copy of Katie's latest book 'Mindful Living' is included, as well as a set of Japa Mala beads which we mail out to each participant.
Ayurvedic wellness - personal and self-paced
We will explore a different topic module by module throughout the course, which means you will be able to access new video content and audio recordings as well as other supporting materials regularly. We’ll also meet on ZOOM and in our Facebook Group - the times for this will be arranged in advance and with plenty of notice. If you miss a session we will have recordings and you can catch up later. There will also be homework assignments and practical exercises (think cooking up a storm, beautiful self-care rituals and making your own Ayurveda beauty products etc.). The course focuses on the personal healing journey of each participant as a platform from which to then serve others and share this work out in the world.
Is there an accreditation?
If you choose the certified option this course is certified by Bhakti Rose once all home work assignments and quizzes are completed and reviewed. There is no one governing body for Ayurveda in Australia so we have created our own 'lifestyle consultant' criteria for this certification. If you choose the personal study option you will not do the homework or quizzes instead it will provide wonderful tools to support your life and health and that of your family and friends. If you are a yoga teacher or health care practitioner of some kind it will enhance your skill set in serving your students and clients. We can also offer CPD points for Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia, contact us for more information.
When can I start?
As soon as the training has launched (April 2020), you’ll be sent a link to start downloading material, so you can dive in straight away. The training is 'evergreen' meaning you can decide when you start and when you finish.
How long will the course take me to complete?
This all depends on how much time you have to study and practice. The course is self-paced. We anticipate that with 2 or 3 hours of study a week it will take you around ten weeks but you can definitely get through the material more quickly if you choose to.Study is self-paced and you can move through the content as quickly or slowly as you like, There are quizzes and homework assignments for the certified option and you will be given personal feedback as part of your course fee. We recommend a 6 to 9 month learning journey. Once you enroll you'll have lifetime free access to our monthly ZOOM circle (specific to this training) so your journey with ayurveda never has to end.
