Purple Couches: Alternative Education in an Alternative Setting

by Andrea on June 11, 2010

aromatherapy educationMost typical aromatherapy education schools are held in buildings that look like something like an office complex. Aromahead Institute has never been a typical school!


Our Settings

While the logistics of Aromahead Institute are those of a typical school, we have unique classroom settings in Ithaca, NY and Sarasota, FL. We believe in small classes held in an intimate, comfortable atmosphere. We’ve always taught aromatherapy education in our homes. Usually the classes are in our living room!

There is something so wonderful about taking a class in someone’s home. At our houses there are comfortable purple couches, a kitchen with organic coffee and tea, and great snacks always available.  Students enjoy an overall feeling of a healthy environment.

We have big windows, cozy seating, and tables and chairs. You can take your pick,  settle in and make yourself at home.  We have always believed that aromatherapy education is supported by beauty, comfort, and good food!

What could be better than to study and learn while sitting on a purple couch in a beautiful place? Do you like winter in the south, palm trees and grapefruit trees? Come to Sarasota. Prefer summer up north and rolling hills in a quiet country setting? Come to Ithaca. Want to study in your pj’s in your own beautiful home? Study at Aromahead Institute online!

The couches and colors look so inviting! I can’t wait to be there! The in-person, kinesthetic elements you provide so exquisitely help make learning so easy for everyone. What amazing teachers you are! Love, Annie

Andrea & Cindy, I’m just loving your posts on FB and the photos of your new place in Ithaca. This blog entry gets me excited for the Aug/Sep classes….. can’t wait to meet you and experience your teaching style. Have heard nothing but raving fans attest to the solid education and heart centered atmosphere you create in both places. Love the purple couches and colors on the walls. I agree with teaching in the living room; that’s my favorite place too. I’m really looking forward to being there soon!
Love, Jean
