Academy Masterclass & Open Day | Ayurveda

With Coen van der Kroon & Martine van Beusekom

In order to give you more insight into our 4-year Ayurveda Practitioner Studies (APS), we offer an Academy Masterclass & Open Day, including three short Ayurveda classes to give you a taste of what it would be like to study with us. This afternoon will provide you with 3 classes on different ayurvedic topics as well as a general presentation about the study program.


Are you thinking of deepening your Ayurveda knowledge to a professional level and would like to join the 4-years Ayurveda Practitioner Studies? Come and join us to experience the teachings, get to know various teachers of our faculty, meet our academy directors Coen van der Kroon and Martine van Beusekom, and ask us all the questions you might have about the study.


Ayurveda Practitioner Studies

We are happy and grateful to start with another year of our Ayurveda Practitioner Studies. This four-year 200 EC study program has been accredited by the independent accreditation organization Stichting Nederlands Register voor Opleidingen (SNRO) at Bachelor level (HBO-niveau in Dutch) since September 2017. This accreditation is an essential part of the license to practise Ayurveda professionally.


This study program is for anyone who is interested in becoming an Ayurveda Practitioner or wants to deepen their professional knowledge, skills, and experience in the field of Ayurveda. The APS is a serious and in-depth study program where students study all major aspects of Ayurveda. At the same time, students develop skills to support (future) clients on their path to health and to treat them for various health issues.


What can you expect?

There will be 3 different classes taught during the Masterclass:

  • Ayurvedic Yoga
  • Basic Principles: Rasa - the Juice of Life
  • Ayurvedic Nutrition


Additionally, general information about the study program including all practical details will be shared after these classes, including plenty of time to ask your questions to Coen van der Kroon and Martine van Beusekom. There will be APS teaching material, textbooks and study guides available. This introduction will give you the possibility to experience the Ayurvedic teachings in a conceptual and experiential way.
