Ayurveda, which means “the science of life,” is a healing science from India that has been practiced for more than 5,000 years.
The California College of Ayurveda offers the most comprehensive curriculum in the field of Ayurveda education in California.
CCA, for short, will make its new home at the former Miner’s Clinic in Nevada City, relocating from 1117 East Main in Grass Valley, according to a press release. The Clinic has been for sale for a long time.
The vision for the facility includes a community health care clinic and food gardens, as well as an educational center.
“We are so very happy to announce the purchase of the former Miner’s Clinic,” it read. “This transaction would not have been possible without the generosity of the former owner (Dan Mason) who agreed to self-finance the transaction.”
The transition will begin with planning the first phase of remodeling of the 12,500 square-foot facility, located on nearly 2 acres.
The first and second phases include space for classrooms, clinics and a yoga center, among other facilities. The third phase will focus on dormitories for students.
A fundraising effort is underway to help make the vision a reality.
