Everything about the Ayurvedic retreat
Our retreat includes everything you need to relax, unwind & regain your health
A customised approach to Ayurveda
Just as everyone has a unique fingerprint, each person has a particular pattern of energy – an individual combination of physical, mental, and emotional characteristics – which comprise the individual.
It is a primary principle in Ayurveda to first understand the entire picture of each individual first before a holistic and comprehensive treatment plan can be prescribed.
Many factors, both internal and external, act upon us and this may affect the balance of our wellbeing. Diet, physical trauma, stress, relationships, and our work play a big role in our health. Once these specific factors are understood, one can take appropriate actions to nullify the negative effects or eliminate the causes of imbalance and re-establish one’s health.
The Ayurveda treatment process
Ayurvedic principles state that imbalances in the three primary energies (Tri-Dosha), create the conditions where disease can arise. Poor diet, weak digestion, improper metabolism, incomplete elimination of waste matter, inadequate sleep, pollution, stress and accumulation of bio-toxins (Ama), etc. are among some of the causes for ill health.
During the initial Shodana (purification) process, these toxins are collected from various parts of body and expelled through the nearest outlet to the affected organ or body part. Then, the Shamana (pacifying treatments) or the rejuvenating treatment are given and will have better and long lasting effect on body. This is a systematic approach that is taken in a particular sequence.
In addition to the host of daily treatments provided by our therapists, you will also take part in a daily therapeutic yoga session which includes various appropriate postures, breathing exercises, and meditation.

Yoga & Meditation
