Ayurveda Institute UK & The Ayurvedic Clinic

Ayurveda Institute UK

Leading the way as one of the largest and most pioneering providers of Ayurvedic education outside Asia, the Ayurveda Institute UK is an international school based in London, specialising in authentic, vocational teaching of Ayurveda from the classical Sanskrit texts. Uniquely benefitting from the symbiosis with the well established Ayurvedic Clinic and the Association of Ayurvedic Professionals UK, the Institute offers unparalleled instruction in its field.

Ayurveda is experiencing a global resurgence and is increasingly recognised as the oldest and most intelligent system of healing known to man. At the Ayurveda Institute, we offer understanding of this vast system from the perspective some of the most highly experienced Ayurvedic physicians in the West.

We deliver teaching that makes Ayurveda accessible through modern interpretation and uniquely using the most advanced teaching media including fully interactive, live-streamed classes for online, e-learning programmes and distance courses.

We teach traditional Ayurvedic medicine which has been successfully interpreted for application to modern life using therapies including herbal medicines, nutrition and lifestyle, massage therapies, Panchakarma purification, meditation and counselling.

Understanding and practicing the principles of Ayurveda is one of the best investments of our time on this planet. Our education programmes, led by Dr Deepika Rodrigo with decades of service to her patients and students, are a true study of Ayurveda. The result is an experience of profound personal transformation through unfolding awareness. Our students come from around the world and divers professions and backgrounds sharing a community which contributes to the elevation of the collective consciousness.”

Born out of the ever expanding work of the Ayurvedic Clinic, the Institute and the Association of Ayurvedic Professionals operate together in symbiosis as a tripartite centre to offer an unparalleled level of support to educate students and raise public awareness of Ayurveda.

What people say


"Dr. Deepika's knowledge of the science of Ayurveda is clearly communicated in her artful yet practical methods of teaching.  Learning this ancient healing system from such an experienced practioner has added a profound insight into my own understanding of the function of the human body."

Rachel Pandit, M.D. Diplomate, American Board of Family Medicine


Dr Deepika not only enabled me to find my way back to health but also encouraged me in my work as an integrative doctor and medical nutritionist. I learned a lot from her and would recommend her to others.

Dr Eleni Tsiompanou Health Being Institute Physician, Nutritional Medicine, Consultant in Palliative Medicine, Integrative Oncology


I can honestly say that Dr Deepika has been a significant influence in turning my life around. Her profound experience and understanding of the philosophy, the science, and the application of Ayurveda to everyday life is shared with great enthusiasm and an adaptability to the individual.



As a student, I felt that I was learning what’s applicable in a western society, without compromising the authenticity or beauty of its tradition. The classes were incredibly interactive and informative. Thank you Dr Deepika

Dr Deepika has been amazing. She just wants to share her many years of experience and help people who need it. I wanted to be a part of that movement to help people.

Kamran Mustafa, London


Dr Deepika’s passion for Ayurveda and her profound understanding of this ancient science developed over many years, truly bring her teaching to life. She is a warm and compassionate teacher and doctor. Her teaching is as much an energetic transmission of understanding as it is traditional learning. I will always be grateful to her for the precious understanding I now have.

Her passion and commitment to teaching Ayurveda is remarkable and contagious. I would describe her as the real McCoy. I would totally recommend the course. It has provided me with the confidence to practice.

Lara Sinha, London


Dr Deepika is a fantastic teacher. The course sessions are never boring or dull. She uses case studies to bring the principles of Ayurveda to life which is a really helpful and engaging way to teach. For me the course has opened up a new career path, but it has also opened my eyes to a new, more positive way of life.
