You will be able to interact with students and teachers in real time from the comfort of your own home. Online classes lack the clarity, support and mentorship needed to gain the proper understanding to be an effective therapist. In-person classes are great, but can be very costly, and require time away from home and family.

The Institute's live streaming, virtual instruction accommodates the growing demand from students worldwide whose schedules conflict with traditional classroom instruction. Our contemporary format supports a variety of learning styles, creating unique, effective and dynamic learning experience. 

The Institute provides active support and mentoring throughout your learning journey. Helping you to gain a solid aromatherapy foundation.
