Hi, I’m Dr. Paul Dugliss, Academic Dean and Director of New World Ayurveda School. Over the years I have seen the power of Ayurveda and what it can do, especially for the everyday imbalances so many people face, such as insomnia, anxiety, fatigue and digestive issues.


Our students tell us that participating in our program has helped them to personally transform physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Many have said their stress and worries have fallen away and they have finally found true happiness. Having experienced firsthand the benefits of Ayurveda, there is nothing more they want to do now than to lead their own families and communities toward a path of optimal wellbeing as an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner.

Now more than ever, the world needs people who can teach their communities about improving immunity, prevention and natural methods of self-care where each person takes responsibility for their own health and healing.


Schedule a free Discovery Appointment with me now so we can explore if becoming an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner through New World Ayurveda School is right for you. 

Accelerate inner growth and develop

consciousness in your clients, and yourself.

For me, the biggest strength of the NWA program was the use of case studies to see 'real world' examples of Ayurvedic treatment. I felt that model of learning really anchored my assessment skills and gave me the information to create plans that generate the greatest impact on my clients' health and well being.
