As of August, Maharishi AyurVeda students at MIU, Fairfield, Iowa, USA, will reach over 800. This is the largest programme in MIU history. The MS in Maharishi AyurVeda and Integrative Medicine will include over 400 students, and so will the BA in Ayurveda and Integrative Wellness. Most of the students are from the US but also from Europe, Asia, Australia, and Latin America.
And this fall, the BA will add a new specialisation in Maharishi Yoga. Students with this specialisation will become instructors in Maharshi Yoga Asanas. And the plan is to have our graduates qualify for certification by the Yoga Alliance, the world’s largest yoga certification organisation.
As part of this expansion, MIU has recently opened the Doshi Center for Integrative Medicine in Los Angeles, California. This centre will double the clinical training capacity of the MS and BA programmes. A new team of medical doctors and Vaidyas is stationed in LA to provide full integrative medicine consultations and train the hundreds of Maharishi AyurVeda health educators and practitioners. This building was a generous donation from the Doshi family. Dr Navim Doshi recently received his honorary doctoral degree from MIU. He is GLOBAL GOOD NEWS a humanitarian, successful businessman, author and has been a major proponent of Vedic knowledge for decades. MIU is grateful for this generous gift, one of the largest the University has received.
MIU’s Ayurveda programme is now the largest in the United States. Within a few years, there will be hundreds of health educators and practitioners working across North America and and other countries, bringing this knowledge of health and enlightenment to the world.
