“When joining KAA I wondered whether the teaching would be as authentic as if I studied in India. I was impressed by the highly experienced, knowledgeable and passionate teachers at the Academy. Highly recommend this Academy to all who are looking for authentic knowledge and hands-on practical and clinical based training straight from the Vedic wisdom.”
