The support diagrams and theory texts are clear and well organised but mostly, it is Dr Apte's ability to teach in a holistic manner, going to the bottom of the question each everytime, that made us feel such an upgrade in both our knowledge and confidence to practice.

Dr Apte’s knowledge about Ayurveda was very comprehensive and she was fascinating to listen to, and I think I speak for the entire group when I say, ‘we had a great day’. Deepa was a lovely tutor with a great presence and she delivered the course for us in such an enjoyable, easy manner. We all found the routine flowed seamlessly and by the conclusion of the day we felt confident about performing an Ayurvedic Face Lift Massage.

....Please pass on my sincere thanks to Dr Deepa Apte. She is a truly excellent teacher - down to earth, a lovely style and brimming with lots of authentic knowledge and practical tips for my Ayurvedic spa treatments. Her deep understanding of Ayurveda and her ability to explain things in an easy to understand way was really impressive...

Letter from a Student

"Hello Deepa,

Thank you very much for your guidance on my very first Panchkarma client. The transformation in the client was amazing. The change in her skin tone, increase in her energy levels, disappearance of feeling of lethargy, bloating and gas complaint gone, constant dull headache - no more, more positive outlook towards life in general. She feels more confident and feels calmer and in control of the situation. She has joined the class on Flower Arrangement which she had always wanted to do. Her counsellor immediately picked up on the change in her and how positive she was through the session. She remarked on her confidence level and noticed the change in her walk, eyes and guess what ? She would like to know about Ayurveda.

One of my client for the Mukhabhyanga has named it as a Miracle Face Massage. All the credit to you.

Thank you. Just seeing the the transformation was truly amazing and very fulfilling for having been able to help someone.

With very Warm Regards
