Do you want to travel abroad and gain new experiences for your job? Johannes from Germany is a physiotherapist and has completed an internship at an Ayurveda clinic in India to learn more about naturopathic treatment methods. In our blog, he talks about his experience.
Johannes, tell us about your Ayurveda internship in India!
My internship was a great experience and everybody here took care of me. At the Ayurveda Clinic, the staff members shared their Chai Tea with me on a daily basis, and two of the staff members always translated for me, so I could talk to the patients, since not everyone here speaks English. Thus, I have learned a lot about the procedures in the clinic. I also learned a lot about the culture and the treatment methods: I feel I gained indepth experience in the field of naturopathy and how to produce ayurvedic medicine. In Ayurvedic medicine, nothing is wasted!
What was your best experience in Jaipur?
One of my favorite memories is my visit to the Taj Mahal. I also visited many temples and forts in my free time. The buildings are very impressive.
What has left a special impression on you during your stay?
I will always remember the friendliness of the people. I got the impression that everyone around me was always trying to help me. During my entire stay I did not meet anybody who was in a bad mood. I felt like I was in good hands in a big family where everyone cares about everyone.
Would you recommend World Unite! to others?
Yes, World Unite! and the local coordinators in Jaipur are great and literally took care of everything. If you have problems, you can always contact the staff. Thank goodness I did not have any.
All in all, my stay was great and I wouldn‘t want to miss this experience!
