I run a physiotherapy clinic, with Yoga and Pilates classes. I decided to take up the Positive Psychology course to help people improve their mental state too. Knowing about the approach in Positive Psychology has been a huge bonus to my practice. I loved working with people, and completing the course has allowed me to help people in a more holistic way. All the research has shown that happiness, self expression and meditation can all help dramatically with the healing process, but even more importantly, can keep people whole and healthy. I particularly enjoyed the classes on flow and attention, learning about positive relationships including positive child rearing, and how to teach people more optimistic thinking.
For anyone thiniking of taking up the course, I would say “Go for it. It’s really worth it!” www.naasyoga.com
NB: The Holistic Health Coach module incorporates many aspects of the positive psychology course.

Recession? What recession!
Within a few weeks into the holistic dietetics course at IHCA, our Adult Weight Management business expanded with two new revenue streams – supplement sales & 1 to 1 consultations.
We have seen a surge in GP and self-referral under our NHS Northamptonshire funded scheme.
With hundreds of patient reporting weight loss and improved health conditions ranging from reduction in blood pressure to lowered cholesterol levels, balanced blood sugar levels to increase in exercise levels and moods.
I have maximised my time and investment and have gained decades of clinical research knowledge, information and experience from the course leaders at IHCA.
This course has exceeded my expectations and has been a Godsend. Thank you.
Having just completed the Diploma in Yoga I can only say that the course was excellent. The structure and the way the information is presented and taught is wonderful. Each chapter builds upon the previous one till finally at the last chapter it all comes full circle as to what ReaI Yoga is all about: bringing more of the Spirit into the World.
I loved the holistic nature of the course and the way it covered the Body Mind and Spirit and connected each one with the other. I found the course extremely user friendly having not studied for an exam for quite some time. I have benefited from the understanding of the information and look forward with passion to spreading this understanding to others. I see Yoga as a way to Spread Life and as a Yoga Teacher I intend to use this qualification to open doors (and then minds) and educate people about Their TRUE SELF. People need to know the TRUTH.
The course was spaced out very well and the theory and exercises were explained to the degree that when you understand the value of doing something, well then you will do it all the more readily. Madeline was a joy to be instructed by and is the very essence of a true Yoga Teacher and great fun too. The atmosphere and Energy in the class was pure Goodness.
I would not hesitate for one moment in recommending this course to anyone.
Bart Harding (Ki Massage Therapist)
The ki massage therapy course was one of the best things that ever happened in my life. The teachers were excellent, and really made sure we were doing everything perfectly. I completed the course in 2000, went into practice immediately and have been in practice continuously since. I have really a passion for this type of work : when I see the the relief it brings to people suffering from say sciatica or migraine, it makes it all worthwhile. Over the years, I have recommended several others , including my own son, to do the course, and they all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Melissa Smith (Owner Synergy, Health and Beauty Centre)
To date, I have done three course with the IAHM. I started with the ki massage in 2003. It was a fantastic experience- the tutors taught us how to connect with our own energy and use this to provide the best experience for the client This is much more than just a massage course, it goes much deeper than other courses out there, I learned from amazing tutors and developed great skills. I didn’t know it at the time but I had taken the first step on y new career path.
I followed up with the yoga teacher training , which was also an amazing course, and with these qualifications, plus my qualification in Personal Training, I opened Synergy – a gym, yoga, health and beauty centre.
I went on to study the Holistic Dietetics and Nutrition course. The knowledge I gained on this course was huge, and it has stood me every day since at Synergy, whether I am conducting personalised consultations, chatting with gym clients or advising the beauty staff and clients on nutrition for great skin and nails.
IAHM course are so different to other courses out there. Along with learning all about the main subject, you learn so much about holistic philosophy , and more importantly about yourself. Some of the people I met on the course I now count among my closest friends If you want to study under tutors who have great knowledge and experience, and who care about your progress, I would strongly recommend the IAHM.
Kevin Forde (Personal Trainer)
Taking the dietetics course was one of the best decisions I ever made in my career. The course gave me a comprehensive understanding of the importance of nutrition to overall health, not only for myself but for all my clients. I learnt not only about how to give dietary advice to people regarding weight loss but also how nutrition can play a huge role helping a wide variety of issues like cholesterol, skin care, increasing energy etc.
Without this course I would never have had the understanding and confidence to relay nutritional advice to my clients. The type of information in this course makes such a huge difference to your quality of life that everyone in the world could do with this type of understanding!
Erika Doolan (Nutrition Consultant / Menu Planner Restaurant Business)
The nutrition course is a really enjoyable, well structured course for anyone passionate about food and nutrition. You learn how food intake really affects health. You may want to start your career in this area or you may be a parent and simply want to know just how important nutrition can be for your growing child. Either way I would highly recommend this course, it was a real eye-opener!
Chartered Physiotherapist, Ki Massage Therapist & Pilates Instructor “I love working with people in a relaxed environment. I’m mainly based in a physiotherapy/pilates clinic. I find the Ki Massage adds a hugely beneficial element to helping my clients return to their perfect health. The results are so rewarding with people feeling physically and mentally lighter and much more energised.”
Ki Massage Therapist, Dublin “When clients come to me they relax to a depth that they may not have reached since childhood. “People work hard and are in stressful jobs so it is vital that they take time out to get a massage. They’re so busy and stressed earning money that their health can suffer. Massage is a great way of staying stress-free and healthy”.
Aideen Reidy (Gym Manager, Dublin)
Obtaining the Diploma in Holistic Nutrition and Dietetics was the official seal of approval I needed to open doors for me in the health industry. Through the course I was offered work in a gym, within which I progressed from reception to manager in less than 5 months. The staff and clients alike benefit from the practical and cutting edge information I learned on the course, and Ive even been invited to do a nutrition blog on www.zumbagalaxy.com to share nutrition tips with class attendees.
I really enjoyed doing the course. It was comprehensive, practical, and easy to apply. As the teachers were experienced practitioners, they were able to give us very real feedback about how to help clients achieve results, and that really brought the material to life. Also, I found the continual assessment really helped me to stay on track with the studying.
