Shorter programs for your own use

Our Academy also offers shorter programs and events, accessible to anyone wanting to use Ayurved in their daily lives. There are lectures, weekend workshops, Ayurvedic nutrition, and massage courses. We love to see Ayurveda becoming a more integrated part of Western life, and we offer a practical way of working with Ayurveda that fits our modern way of living.

The Academy offers modern education, including e-learning tracks, use of Learning Management Systems, online classes, and pre-recorded video classes. In our trainings, hands-on learning and practice remain an important part of our education. However, theory parts can often be offered very efficiently by video classes and digital teaching as well as study facilities.


In tune with modern Western life, our Academy also offers multiple shorter workshops and training for using Ayurveda in your personal, day-to-day, life.
