An 8-day residential training retreat conducted in an Ayurvedic clinic on a farm
At every year around the time, I am honored to fulfill the wish of my dear teacher Kusum Modak (creator of the AYM method), to give training course in Khalad, Pune. It is always a blessing for me to be back in her presence, after 20+ years of learning this AYM method under her guidance. Kusum (80 years old this year) may visit us from time to time, to share her incomparable knowledge based on her 40-year experience developing AYM. This is an amazing gift for all AYM practitioners and enthusiasts. An inspiring meeting not to be missed!
