Coen van der Kroon

Coen van der Kroon has dedicated his life to understanding the Indian health science of Ayurveda. At The Yoga Therapy Institute, we are honoured to introduce him as the leading teacher of The Ayurveda Studies Foundation Course at Mandala de Masca in Tenerife, in June 2018.

It has been Coen’s mission to clarify the ancient Eastern advice for disease prevention and day-to-day health, so the modern Western mind understands its implications.

He shares his expertise by publishing articles for several magazines and books, one of which is an international bestseller.  He is also well-known for his teachings at The Academy of Ayurvedic Studies (AAS) in the Netherlands, which he founded in 2005.

The AAS has recently merged with Delight Academy  Ayurveda, where he is currently Program Director, as well as one of the main teachers.

Coen van Der Kroon was privileged to have studied with the most renowned and inspirational teachers in the field of Ayurveda and yoga and who are all visiting faculty at The Academy:

  • Dr David Frawley
  • Dr Sunil Joshi
  • Dr Robert Svoboda,
  • Vaidya Atreya Smith
  • Dr Vijith Sasidhar

Coen also attended the Ayurvedic Institute for 3 years with Dr Vasant Lad, studied in the USA and has substantial hands-on experience in India.

In the field of yoga, his roots are to be found in the Kashmir yoga tradition inspired by Jean Klein.

Coen is a warm, loved teacher who everyone enjoys working with. The students of The Yoga Therapy Institute will enjoy his gentle and in-depth knowledge of Ayurveda and its applications to real life. Another unique opportunity to learn from one of the most humble masters of our time.

Ayurveda & Yoga Foundation Course Level I

At The Yoga Therapy Institute, we are looking forward to Coen van Der Kroon’s wisdom and grounding vision, which you can experience at The Ayurveda & Yoga Foundation Course Level I, at Mandala de Masca in Tenerife, Spain, in June 2018.

In this retreat course, he will be teaching the main principles of Ayurveda and their practical applications in life and Yoga, together with the wonderful Liese Van Dam.

I can’t wait to attend Coen and Liese’s Ayurveda & Yoga Foundation Course at Mandala de Masca. We are really proud of this course. They had the brilliant idea of cooking on-site so that students can learn about the preparation of Ayurvedic food combinations.  I have a cooking background and I will be sitting front-row, taking notes and tasting everything they prepare!”
