Frequently Asked Questions

Here are answers to the the most frequently asked questions about Perfect Health Online: Live an Ayurvedic Lifestyle.

Q. Why was this online course created?

A. Perfect Health Online was created to expand access to the Chopra Center’s foundational teachings on Ayurveda and allow more people in areas all around the world to experience the benefits of this ancient wisdom.

Q. Who should take this course?

A. This course is perfect for anyone looking to maintain good health, interested in living a “cleaner” life, or wanting to benefit from natural healing practices that are  backed by modern Western medicine. This course is also for anyone who is experiencing, or who has experienced, health challenges.

Q: How is this course different from  the Chopra Center's in-person retreat, Perfect Health?

A. The main difference is that Perfect Health Online can be experienced from anywhere in the world, while our Perfect Health retreat is held in Carlsbad, California. Perfect Health Online covers the same concepts and is taught by many of the same physicians and Chopra Center educators as our in-person retreat. Perfect Health Online does not include massages, in-person mind-body medical consultations, our herbal cleanse, or Ayurvedic meals. Instead, the online program gives you the tools to experience detoxification, nourishment, and renewal from the comfort of your home.

Q. The course description says that I will learn about doshas in this course. What are doshas?

A. Doshas are Ayurvedic mind-body types. There are three dosha types: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Your dosha reflects your innate tendencies, including your temperament, energy level, sleep patterns, metabolism, and many other aspects of your body, mind, and emotions. In Perfect Health Online, you will learn the best mind-body practices to create vibrant health for your unique dosha type.
