Our story


Our story begins in 2004 with the Academy of Ayurvedic Studies, founded by Coen van der Kroon in Amsterdam. After working independently for 12 years, we became part of Delight Group in 2016. Delight Academy was founded to become a pillar within Delight offering authentic ayurveda programs. At that time, Martine van Beusekom joined the Academy as accreditation-responsible, teacher and later, managing director, where Coen’s role became program director. Together, we built a flourishing Academy, supported by a team of teachers and office staff. After the bankruptcy of Delight Group in 2023, we founded the Ayurveda Academy The Netherlands and nowadays continue offering and further developing the high-quality education that we had been working on in the previous years.
