Ayurveda

Coen van der Kroon & Liese van Dam will be giving this workshop together.

About Coen 

Coen van der Kroon was born in Utrecht, The Netherlands in 1962. He has an academic background in Greek and Latin Languages and Culture. His MA thesis was on ancient Greek gynecology with a comparison between Hippocratic and Ayurvedic Medicine. This was the start of his interest in and study of ayurveda.

Coen van der Kroon has dedicated his life to understanding the Indian health science of ayurveda. It has been his mission to clarify the ancient Eastern advice for disease prevention and day-to-day health and well-being so that the implications can be understood by the modern Western mind. He is making this happen through his writing for magazines and books – including an international bestseller – and his teaching, centered around The Academy of Ayurvedic Studies (AAS) in the Netherlands, which he founded in 2005. 

He himself was privileged to have studied with the most renowned and inspirational teachers in the field of ayurveda and yoga, including Dr. David Frawley, Dr. Sunil Joshi, Dr. Robert Svoboda, Atreya Smith and Dr. Vijith Sasidhar (who are all visiting faculty at the AAS), as well as 3 years at the Ayurvedic Institute with Dr. Vasant Lad, in the USA and hands-on experience in India.

 

About Liese

Liese originally trained as a hatha yoga teacher in India. Her journey with yoga started at a time when life didn’t give her a lot of satisfaction and she was looking for a way to bring spirituality into her life. Once discovered, she intensely practiced and taught all aspects of yoga – including pranayama, philosophy and chanting - for several years in various countries across the globe before settling back in her home country – The Netherlands.

By this time, she had experienced that Yoga & Ayurveda are two sides of the same coin and that practicing both alongside each other has a deep and powerful effect. In 2006 she officially commenced studying Ayurveda and graduated in 2010 from the Academy of Ayurvedic Studies with Coen van der Kroon, (now Delight Academy).


Ever since, she has been teaching workshops at yoga schools, retreats and in yoga teacher training courses. With a passion for yoga, nutrition and women’s health; Liese teaches these subjects from an Ayurvedic viewpoint. At Delight Academy | Ayurveda Liese teaches advanced principles in the second year of the Ayurvedic Practitioner Training and the always popular 10-day nutrition course for all who are interested. Apart from teaching Liese works as an Ayurvedic Practitioner and has a clinic in Utrecht where she gives consultations and treatments.

Liese’s motto is Ancient wisdom made practical for you!

It is a true honor to have both of them with us!
