This retreat will be about the clinical value of the first 15 chapters of the Ashtanga Hridayam – and is for all who really want to understand how to read the Ashtanga Hridayam in a ‘modern’ and applicable way, how to apply and how to advise its contents, and how to make this valuable information the foundation of your day-to-day clinical practice.

The morning program will be based on a series of 17 video classes on the scientific language of ayurveda, and the first 15 chapters of Ashtanga Hridayam. They will be monitored by Gabriel Karpf and/or Coen van der Kroon, and they will be there as instructors as well in respect to getting deeper into the matter being taught. Afternoons will be spent on the practical application and explanations thereof, referring to the specific topic of each morning program. The afternoon programs will be taught, guided or instructed by Dr. Vijith and his wife Dr. Vidya, either on location – mostly in their clinic Sreekrishna. The afternoon program will be highly interactive. Evenings are for assignments, reading, preparing and leisure.

This intensive retreat is an excellent addition for all who have had a solid basic training in the founding principles of ayurveda, either more practical or theoretical. Though announced as a intermediate retreat – even more advanced students can still always & greatly benefit from this retreat, as it is contains so much deep and multilevel information.

Dr. Vijith and Dr. Vidya are great teachers of authentic ayurveda – and it is our personal experience that when you study with such teachers – your understanding speeds up at least 3-fold. Also – and especially so – on a deeper level! They teach straight from the classic texts, but in a way which is super-accessible as well as modern in its applications. With depth and humor, and supported by a team of very experienced ayurveda experts, as mentioned above.

The Academy of Ayurvedic Studies will offer this program as an optional part of their three-year practitioner training, and this retreat will be accredited with 120 contact hours towards the accreditation of your ayurveda studies (or 60 extra classroom hours on top of your 540 total of the three year practitioner course).
