Annual 1-month Global Training 2023

- BASIC Level -

from Sept 21 to Oct 19, 2023


after many years of giving the annual one-month training in Maharlika (Philippines), last year we shifted our venue for the training to ANANDA NAGAR, INDIA. (see the video of the Naturopathy Center at the bottom of the page)

The result was wonderful. This was not only due to the excellent support of Ananda Nagar AMYN management team Nirainjan & Tapasudha plus staff, but also especially because of the blissful spiritual environment. Here you’ll experience:

  • Super high spiritual atmosphere
  • You’ll occasionally meditate in Tantra Piithas for immediate concentration – where yogis attained enlightenment (at Dadhichi Hill, Dakshina River, Dinosaur Fossil Hill & others – plus Baba’s house)
  • Perfectly peaceful place for healing – even air is pure
  • Medical & devotional workshops by Senior Dadas, Didis & Doctors
    Outings – multi-therapy clinic, medicinal garden, A.N. welfare projects
    Medical & educational camps in poor villages

My co-trainer will be Nirainjan of England, who has been the manager and medical in-charge of the Ananda Nagar center for 8 years.

Through this course you will join our active global network of graduates and trained staff, taking advantage of our on-going online and offline programs.

You will learn Baba’s medical teaching & our healing system which have enabled many thousands of people around the world to find real health by:

  • the practical & loving care of our therapists – nearly 200 graduates in over 20 countries
  • the simple easy-to-understand explanation of how
    the body works
    our healing system works
  • individualized application of our 6 steps:
    1. food
    2. fasting
    3. inner & outer exercise
    4. water drinking system
    5. physical therapies related to water, sun & mud
    6. spiritual & psycho-therapeutic practices
  • encouraging long-term lifestyle change according to need & capacity

Always looking forward with endless optimism,

Dada Dharmavedananda

Some Clarifications

On the successful completion of this 1 month theoretical and practical training, you will receive a ‘Diploma in Basic Natural Therapeutics’ certificate.  

Trainees need no previous medical experience, and need not make any commitment whether they will use the knowledge gained through the training to eventually begin a permanent program, or make short-term programs, or simply help themselves, their friends and family. Nevertheless, you may want to know —

If you will eventually want to open a permanent center, it is a 4-stage process: 

  • This Basic Level Training, which enables a graduate to progressively gain the capacity to offer the next 3 programs:
  • Weekend Yoga Detox Retreats;
  • Numerous longer Yoga Detox Retreats, e.g. 5 to 12-day programs;
  • Permanent Yoga Naturopathy Center


There are other long-term options possible besides aiming at opening a permanent center. For example, the aim may be:

  • A Yoga Naturopathy coaching program
  • An online Yoga Lifestyle program
  • An outpatient care center offering any combination of Yoga Naturopathy elements 
  • Join our regular global online detox programs as a coach


If you aim at any of the above programs, in the beginning if only one or two persons from your place complete this First Level Training, it is quite adequate to gradually build toward creating the team you need – with the help we are happy to give. 

Directly in the place you are working, we provide separate training to medical in-charges in diagnosis/prescription. Plus on-going training according to need in cooking, therapy and administration. Advanced training is usually given on a non-profit basis. 

Through this program, besides improving your own health on all levels and learning how to help others – your payment enables us to subsidize the cost of medical & education camps for the poor and treatment of local patients who otherwise would not be able to afford treatment. See last page for charges. Thank you in advance!

Training will be limited to 16 persons. So, if you are interested, it is better to let us know as soon as possible.
