SAMA’s academy team


From different backgrounds and plural roots, the members of our team have in common their encounter with Ayurveda. For some of them since ever, for others since only recently. Through the path of passion for some, through the path of study and practice for others. Sometimes even by accident. But perhaps it was their destiny.

Charles Elie Nicollerat

CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

«Ayurveda is not only a 5000-year old powerful medicine whose knowledge has been preserved and documented, but above all a model of depth and finesse in the understanding of man, of nature and universe, offering the keys to the prevention and cure of so many ailments that we needlessly suffer from.»

MEMBER OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS, STRATEGY AND DEVELOPMENT, INDIA, FIRST DEAN

«The optimal way to learn Ayurveda is to have the curriculum rooted in the original and classical knowledge sources, to submit to a pedagogy that promotes analytical and contemplative learning, and to get trained to translate the gained knowledge for real and contemporary medical needs. MedVaidya is conceptualized, created and implemented by keeping these elements in mind. It is meant for the true seekers who are not ready for any compromise».

Michel Liardon

MEMBER OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS, ADMINISTRATION, HR AND TRAINING

«Currently, the living and working conditions, imposed by an absolute quest for power and profit, have become so destructive that they are simply unbearable or even unacceptable. As a result, awareness is gradually raising and the world is changing. People are taking responsibility and are shaping themselves to take charge of their own destiny. A new paradigm is being (re)established: the Knowledge of Life, called Ayurveda in Sanskrit».

«Ayurveda is the medical system that can provide an effective response to modern diseases. It is shown especially when it comes to treating chronic diseases in the western population. This is what I have been observing as a practitioner in Europe for the past 15 years».
