AyurVeda is an ancient Indian holistic system of healing that works on the principle that, with a balanced lifestyle, human beings’ life expectancy should be prolonged.  Apart from helping to attain longevity AyurVedic practice is often used to treat; fatigue, insomnia, arthritis, heart disease, rheumatism, asthma, allergies, digestive problems, mental & cerebral ailments, weight control and joints & muscular aliments.

The word AyurVeda is a combination of two Sanskrit words
Ayur = Life   Veda = Knowledge / Science

AyurVedic Consultation during Retreats

AyurVeda recognises that our cosmic energy consists of three component energy ‘Doshas’; Vata, Pitta and Kapha.  Each person has a unique pattern featuring different levels of the three Doshas; one primary and the other two less prominent. Before using AyurVedic remedies it is important to find out your primary or dominant Dosha.  Good health relies on our ability to keep the Vata, Pitta and Kapha levels in harmonic balance.

AyurVedic Therapis during Retreats

Through out the retreats, you will be personally under the guidance of an Ayurvedic Doctor & Yoga Teacher (from Kerala); The doctors & Ayurveda Therapists from Kerala will be doing your Consultations, treatments, Yoga, Meditations, pranayama, counselling, dietary advices etc.

Detox / De-stress / Rejuvenating AyurVedic Therapies like Abyangham, SiroDhara, Kizhi, Nasyam etc will be selected depending upon your consultation. We give priority to your Body & Mind detox and cleansing. The ratio of the cleansing needed for your body, mind or soul can be determined only after the consultation.

Yoga and Meditation during Retreats

AyurVedic principles consider Yoga and Meditation to be complimentary science for healing and the rejuvenation of mind and body. Whilst AyurVeda focuses on treatment (Chikitsa) of the mind and body; Yoga and Meditation supplements the process through self-development and self-realisation (Sadhana).

Yoga constitutes of Asanas or body postures; scientifically prescribed to stretch, exercise and stimulate parts of the body to provide holistic healing. The primary purpose of Asanas is to bring balance and harmony to the five basic elements that govern the body. It is the balance of these elements that ensures good health, wellbeing and longevity.  Yoga, through Asanas and breathing, provides one with a recognisable interaction and connection between one’s body and mind.

Nutrition and Diet during Retreats

The AyurVedic Lunch is based on recipes from Kerala, India. The recipes will use herbs and spices specially imported from Kerala to enhance the holistic value of your Retreat programme.

AyurVeda teaches us that vital energy is present in fresh vegetables and fruits. Fresh vegetables contain Prana energy which helps to boost the immune system and sense of vitality. AyurVeda states that it is best to have different types of food every day, in order to keep your digestive system healthy.

Try to include different grains, fruits, vegetables, proteins and flavours.  Always include six flavours in your daily diet:

  • sweet
  • sour
  • salty
  • bitter
  • astringent (harsh)
  • pungent

Flavour your food with Chutneys or fruit based sauces.  Use turmeric, black pepper, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, dill seeds, fennel seeds in food preparations when possible.

The following contradictory food combinations is said to weaken one’s immune system, and should therefore be avoided:

Milk and fish
Milk and sour fruits
Milk and eggs
Ghee and honey
Milk and pickles
Milk and yogurt
Hot water and honey
Banana and yogurt
Hot milk and honey

Drinking lot of coffee, tea and caffeinated soft drinks creates Dosha imbalances. It affects the liver and increases toxin levels in the body. Drink more fresh milk, herbal tea, and energy drinks with herbs and spice to increase your energy levels.  When thirsty drink hot water rather than cold water, as it cleanses your digestive tracts.
