The APA Certificate Online Intensive prepares you to work professionally with animals and their people and launch your animal wellness business. It teaches you safe use of essential oils, based on the science of zoopharmacognosy, as well as the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine for a truly holistic overview. We also cover the anatomy and physiology of stress, how it affects the animals that live with us, and how to reduce it through understanding a species’ natural needs. APA addresses every aspect of wellness to create true well-being for all creatures with nature’s guidance and a deep understanding of the power of healing intention. You will be learning with a supportive group of fellow students as Nayana shares her decades of experience through ‘live’ lessons, that inspire you to connect with plant medicine and our animal friends in a deep and meaningful way.

The course consists of 12 lessons, each one with several sub-lessons, or topics that include further reading, and videos to watch between live lessons.
There are 12 x 3 hour live “Zoom” lessons with Nayana or Neomi David, our TCM teacher. These are recorded for you to watch later, or if you have scheduling conflicts (although we strongly advise you do all you can to make it ‘live’).
The meetings will be held on a Saturday and Sunday, one weekend a month for 6 months, a total of 36 live teaching hours.
You will have interesting practical assignments to complete between live lessons to integrate your learning.
You have access to a class forum for questions and interaction with fellow students and Nayana throughout the course, in the Animal Wellness Lounge
After the live lessons you will do 8 your case studies. Nayana mentors you through each case, it is a hands on learning experience, not a test. You are encouraged to complete at least 1 case study a month on a variety of species. But you can also complete more quickly if you choose to.
