Payments and communications

Thank you for your interest in the Ayurvedic medicine training that our school offers. Our school, EIVS, is certified to teach the Higher Professional Examination of Ayurvedic Naturopath (EPS in French) in Switzerland. See information on the EPS here.

After spending 20 years managing a large teaching institute of Ayurveda from 1995 to 2014, I decided to downsize the school to a level I could manage on my own. This means that much of the administration is automated. This is one of the reasons why all payments for the courses and trainings our school offers must be made through our online store; once your fees are paid, your invoice is automatically generated by the store.

In order to limit accounting and administration, EIVS does not offer payment plans for its courses.

Since October 2022 I am no longer able to answer emails. Since the end of 2023 there is a new adminstrator taking care of communications and answering questions about the trainings. I am losing my eyesight mainly due to degeneration of the cervical nerves and cervical blood flow. This condition worsens when I work behind a computer, so I reduce my working time to teaching and a minimum of administration. For a full explanation, click here.

Because of this condition I have stopped teaching live classes in the M2.1.1 (level 1) training in English. At this time EIVS is offering the level 1 training as recorded lessons with support PDF study material. Each lesson has 7 to 8 hours of Question & Answer lessons in addition to the basic lesson. For a full discription of the teaching methodology click here.

I hope you will understand my priority - which is to share the knowledge I have gained during 36 years of working as an Ayurvedic Vaidya. If you can accept this, then I am committed to sharing all that I have learned over the past 49 years - that is the time I have spent immersed in the Indian tradition.

I wish you all a happy and healthy life!
Hari Om!
