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.
