General questions about training and booking

Which training is right for me? Who can advise me?

At the European Academy of Ayurveda you will find a wide range of Ayurveda trainings and seminars. In order to find the right one for you, you can use our information events on the campus days or also the possibility of a personal training consultation (by phone, video call or here on site).

In addition, we have compiled some information on some of the specialist areas for your orientation:

Ayurvedic Medicine The study of Ayurvedic medicine is open to all who have a basic medical education (doctors, non-medical practitioners, nurses, physiotherapists, midwives, etc.). In order to practice Ayurveda medicine later on, you must have a license to practice as a doctor or non-medical practitioner. If you want to study Ayurveda medicine without any previous medical knowledge, you should start with a training as a non-medical practitioner beforehand.

Ayurvedic Massage You like to work with the body and want to touch body and soul with your hands? Then the Ayurveda massage training is exactly the right thing for you. As you will be working as an Ayurveda massage practitioner or Ayurveda therapist at the massage bench in an Ayurveda clinic or in your own practice, you should make sure that you yourself have a healthy back and strong joints.

Ayurveda Nutrition Ayurvedic nutrition and culinary arts trainings are open to all. It's more of a pain to choose the right one from the wide range of online and face-to-face courses. With the introductory course on "Type Appropriate Ayurvedic Nutrition", you can get oriented in the best possible way and then continue in the desired training. The introductory course will fully count towards your further training to become an Ayurvedic Nutrition Coach, Ayurvedic Nutrition and Health Consultant or Ayurvedic Chef.

Psychology and Meditation There are two reasons to choose to train as an Ayurvedic Psychological Consultant or Meditation Leader: Either you want to use this practical further training and self-awareness for your own personality development or you are already working with people whom you would like to advise and treat even more intensively with the help of the psychological and spiritual Ayurvedic therapies. Optimal entry is the specialized course for Ayurveda-Mental-Coach.

How can I get in touch with you?

Monday to Friday we are easily reachable by phone from 8.30 am to 4 pm. You are also welcome to send us an email with your request to info@ayurveda-academy.org.

New: You can now book a consultation appointment online (by phone or video call). We will then reserve a fixed time slot for you and take plenty of time to answer your questions. This is part of our mentoring program.

If you are already sure which seminar/training you would like to attend, you can book directly on the website.


What are the differences between the various forms of learning?

Our concept involves 3 different learning types of studying:

  1. Presence Seminars: Participate in Ayurveda lessons on-site at various locations, including Birstein, Berlin, Frankfurt, Vienna, and Zurich, providing a unique in-person experience.
  2. Live Web Seminars: Engage in live and online lessons through virtual classrooms using professional, user-friendly tools. Actively participate and interact with the teacher, asking questions in real-time.
  3. e-Academy: For flexible learning, utilize the e-Academy with videos, audio files, and interactive manuscripts. Learn at your own pace and convenience using a notebook or tablet.

Is it possible for me to study online only?

Yes, some of our Ayurveda training courses can be done 100% online in our Rosenberg eAcademy. Via live webinars or innovatively designed eLearnings with video streams and interactive learning experiences.

What if I have questions during the online course?

As part of our Ayurveda community, you are not alone. With our online training, we offer Live Chats with Q & A sessions where you can discuss your questions with your lecturers. Also, individual mentoring is included in your training. You can simply make an appointment for it here.

Can I study at the Rosenberg European Academy of Ayurveda without previous education?

Yes, we do offer training courses for all levels (beginner, intermediate & medical practitioner). So you can easily start with one of our beginner modules.

Do I need to book all modules at one time?

No, you can stay completely flexible with our modular system and create your very own learning plan that suits your personal circumstances.

I already have previous knowledge of Ayurveda, will this be credited?

If you already have an Ayurveda training, this can be credited as "non-learning achievement" for your further training at the European Academy of Ayurveda. This includes previously acquired knowledge, skills, competencies, which are identical to the teaching content and learning objectives of the offered modules / blocks up to about 80%. The examination of this comparison is subject to a fee. The costs for this are usually € 50,-/CHF 80,-.

For further information, please contact our school management directly ingelore.weidner@ayurveda-akademie.org

How does studying online at the eAcademy work?

With our online training at the eAcademy, we present an entirely innovative approach to learning. Using a diverse eMagazine as a foundation, you can explore various content in an engaging manner. A range of videos, audios, and a knowledge database allows for in-depth immersion into the subjects. Finally, you can assess and reinforce your newfound knowledge and acquired skills through a learning check.

How does it work with the exams?

As a competence center for Ayurveda, the Rosenberg Academy stands for a high standard of quality in the transfer of skills. After each training block you can check your learning success with a digital learning check.

At the end of the entire training a final examination with certificate takes place.

At the end of a specialized course - such as Ayurveda Health Coach, Nutrition Coach or Mental Coach - you will complete an online exam with cross-block questions on the practical application of your knowledge in addition to the module learning checks.

At the end of a training course - such as Ayurveda Nutrition and Health Consultant or Ayurveda Massage Practitioner - you will complete a written, oral and, in some cases, practical examination. To prepare for the examination, you will find information on the examination regulations and dates as well as a digital question database with practice questions on our student login.

The examination for the IHK certificate course Ayurveda Health Coach (IHK) takes place before an examination board of the Hanau Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK).

What do I need to bring to my face-to-face courses?

Bring along your positive energy and eagerness to learn, along with writing tools and comfortable, weather-appropriate attire to enhance your experience on our campus. We provide complimentary hot water, tea, and thermoses throughout the day.

Additionally, our café offers a selection of beverages and Ayurvedic specialties for purchase to enrich your stay.


Will I get a certificate after my training?

Yes, you will receive a certificate at the end of your training.

Studying with the European Academy of Ayurveda stands for quality and high standards, which is reflected in diverse certifications and gives you access to important Ayurveda professional associations.

What is the catering like during my stay?

In Birstein our students enjoy a vegetarian Ayurvedic diet with organic certification. We use mainly seasonal ingredients from regional cultivation.

The authentic Ayurveda cuisine is not vegan, but uses milk, ghee and honey in the daily diet and also as "carriers" of immune-strengthening and vitalizing spices and herbs.

If you would like to enjoy our organic Ayurveda cuisine in a vegan way, you can omit those dishes which have been prepared with ghee.

Please let us know in good time before your arrival if you have any food allergies. Our kitchen will try to take this into consideration.

A gluten-free diet can be easily implemented.
