The following is a review of The Ayurveda Experience. You can find a review of Modern Ayurveda here.
Is it worth your time and money?
I’m so glad I have the opportunity to share my Ayurveda experience with you…And even more excited to write and share The Ayurveda Experience review! Ayurveda improved my health and relationship to life, and I know it can do the same for you, and the people you love.
Before I found Ayurveda, I was searching for a natural way to navigate menopause, winter colds, and understand my daughter’s allergies… But most of all, I was trying to avoid the chronic illnesses many people deal with by middle age.
My Ayurveda Story
It was the winter of 2000. My sister’s boyfriend enrolled at the California College of Ayurveda in Grass Valley, California. Bill would share with Lisa what he was learning, and then Lisa would share it with me. We were both so fascinated by his transformation and insights that we wanted to know even more. He seemed to have a “glow” of health that we wanted…! So we enrolled in the same program the following January.
The first thing we learned is that Ayurveda means, the knowledge or science of life.
Ayur or Ayous = life, and Veda = wisdom.
Ayurveda Changed My Life
It struck me that learning Ayurveda could be really useful and practical. I wanted a system that could support me in maintaining my ideal weight and keep me healthy in later years of life. Pharmaceutical drugs scared me. They seemed more like the disease than the cure. Ayurveda seemed like the answer to staying vital and preventing disease before it developed. In other words, it seemed worthy of attention.
When I think back, our interest and enthusiasm were a little strange because we were unlikely candidates. We grew up in Upper Michigan, about as far from India (Ayurveda’s motherland) as possible. My sister and I had no understanding of the Indian culture or why we were even interested…but we were.
As I reflect back, it was almost as if Ayurveda has chosen us. We were just following the call.
A Turning Point
Learning Ayurveda was a real turning point in my life. It opened me to so many new insights about myself and life. There was a distinct and obvious intelligence of nature that I had somehow missed. I began to perceive life differently, and understand the importance of living in harmony with the rhythms and cycles of nature.

So if you’re here now, maybe Ayurveda is calling you too.
Once you understand the principles of Ayurveda, it’s impossible to look at the world the same way. It’s full of ancient wisdom and kitchen table practicality. Ayurveda is full of common sense principles for vitality, sustainable health, and longevity.
It’s not just for people either! The principles apply to every living thing. Trees, plants, animals, foods…everything can be looked through the 5 elements.
Most importantly Ayurveda is a system of healthcare that you can use for your entire family. When you understand the principles, it’s easy to spot when you or your kids are sliding out of balance.
Is Ayurveda A Religion?
If Ayurveda were a religion, Nature would be its Goddess
and overindulgence would be the only sin ~Robert Svaboda
I often get asked if Ayurveda is a religion. It’s definitely not. The rules of nature have nothing to do with morality. Ayurveda doesn’t care what you do. There’s no judgment at all. It’s just based on the laws of nature. It just says if you don’t live in harmony with the forces of the elements, you pay the consequences. Whether you like it or not you’re connected and a part of everything around you. If you don’t live in harmony with it…well, you’re out of harmony.
Health and harmony are synonymous.
Where there is harmony, there is health
Where there is disharmony, there is disease – Dr. Marc Halpern
Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times
Ayurveda is nature-based wisdom and instruction about how to live in harmony with nature. Life itself will become your teacher as you follow the cycles of the sun, and ebb and flow of the seasons. It will teach you about yourself, your imbalances, the choices you make and how they affect your life. Ayurveda will help you to see life whole, rather than fragmented.
In 2000 few schools were teaching Ayurveda in the United States. Many people knew about Yoga, Ayurveda’s sister science. But few people in the US knew about Ayurveda.
Today Ayurveda is finally getting the attention it deserves thanks to many schools and the technology of online learning.
There are many good physical, academic institutes in the U.S. I recommend the California College of Ayurveda in Grass Valley. The caveat is…prepare to spend between $10,000 – $14,000 for your education. This does not include other costs of commuting, accommodations, and food.
But if you are busy and cannot devote long hours and years to study and travel, or do not have thousands of dollars necessary to fund your education, then The Ayurveda Experience is for you.
The Ayurveda Experience is a complete multi-media program. It will give you the knowledge, tools, and secrets the ancient Rishi’s discovered over 5000 years ago.
- You will experience a complete mental, physical, emotional transformation.
- It will save you money by staying healthy.
- Most of all, you’ll learn to love and appreciate yourself just the way you are.

The Ayurveda Experience Pros:
- The Ayurveda Experience is a high-quality multi-media production. It was inspired by Lisa Coffey’s real-life practice and experience.
- Easy to follow videos that explain each of its principles in detail so you can quickly follow them for life.
- Available in both digital and physical versions.

The Ayurveda Experience Cons:
The Ayurveda Experience may not be for you…
- If you have strong religious views, or background whose teachings contradict the teaching of Ayurveda, you probably won’t appreciate the program.
- Or if you don’t have time to view the program to properly understand the concepts, you won’t be able to apply them to your life.
- You may be disappointed in The Ayurveda Experience if you want a more in-depth education on Ayurveda. The Ayurveda Experience is designed for folks who are just looking to live a healthier and happier life as opposed to opening a practice.
The program is worth much more than $67! You will learn enough about Ayurveda to easily incorporate it into daily living for perfect health. And you won’t just learn concepts and ideas that have no practical use to you. The Ayurveda Experience gives you experiences by DEMONSTRATING HOW TO correctly perform the recommended practices.
I wish this program were around when I was first learning about Ayurveda in 2000. It has a wealth of information inside, and it was fun to watch. I enjoyed the authenticity of Lissa Coffey’s presentation, and the backdrops are gorgeous.
I hope my Ayurveda Experience review was helpful for you. If you want to begin your journey into real health…
Begin by learning your unique body/mind type or constitution. If you decide it’s not for you, I’m so glad you got to know even a little more about Ayurveda. Please leave me a comment or a question below.
