Our History

Florida Academy of Ayurveda was conceptualized by Denise O’Dunn, Ayurvedic Practitioner and owner of Balance & Bliss Ayurvedic Lifestyle Center, as she was frequently presented with requests from students, clients and business associates seeking to deepen their knowledge base of Ayurveda through formal education. Some expressed interest in Ayurveda for personal enrichment, others for the advancement of professional development.

Denise began planning the academy and with the support of her husband Kevin O’Dunn, the Florida Academy of Ayurveda began its first academic year in April of 2011.

Feel free to contact us with any questions about the academy.
