What is Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a 'whole body' healing system.

It's origins are in India thousands of years ago.

Still widely practiced it's popularity continues to rise with the appearance of luxury

Ayurvedic resorts.

Yoga & Ayurveda share their birth Mother, India.

Translated from Sanskrit, Ayurveda means 'The science of life', the focus is balance

between mind, body and spirit. Ayurvedic packages inc due massage, acupuncture,

meditation, yoga, diet, herbal medicine and unique age-old rituals that marry science and

nature in perfect unison.

Treatment covers 

- Practices to adopt in your lifestyle

- Dietary foods & habits to take up

- Assessing the mind, body and spirit constitution

The belief is that every person is made up of the 5 elements- space, air, fire, water and earth.

These combine in us to form 3 energies (doshas) and it is the balance of these energies that is key to the therapies.

1. 'Vata Dosha' is considered the most powerful, this is the energy of all basic bodily & organ functions such as our blood and breathing.

Regimens such as the time we go to sleep or when we eat affect the energy and can

result in poor health outcomes. In balance comes creativity.

2. 'Pitta Dosha' controls digestion and metabolism. Disruption can come from the foods we eat. In balance our mind has clarity.

3. 'Kapha Dosha' controls muscle growth and the immune system by spreading water

around our body, hydration. This is affected by what we drink, especially the volume of
salt and water. In balance we are connected to the love inside and outside of us.

Luxury Ayurveda Retreats

There is a difference between an Ayurvedic Treatment package such as Panchakarma and a retreat that includes an Ayurveda massage with oil.

If you are interested in Panchakarma and Ayurveda Treatments at a center with an

Ayurvedic doctor, consultation, treatment and a regimen plan then

there are some excellent retreats to choose from.

The packages at these retreats are fantastic and guests report very positive outcomes in their health and well being.

One reason may be that Ayurvedic treatments like Panchakarma offer a holistic approach with a long-term healing objective.

These programs really are the complete wellness package, offering deep and meaningful change in mind, body and spirit.

Retreat centers offer treatment packages that have a different focus - Rejuvenation , Anti Aging, Weight Loss & Panchakarma.
