Ayurveda and Yoga


Ayurvedic Protocol

Our core process is based on Ayurveda, an ancient science that has taught us how to heal our body, mind and soul in order to live in balance with ourselves and with the external world.

We carefully curate our retreats based on participant’s individual Ayurvedic needs through prakriti (elemental composition) and nadi pareeksha (pulse) analysis.

A specialised Yoga program will also be proposed, based on Pancha koshas.

Pancha meaning “five” and Kosha, “layer”.
We have 5 layers of consciousness through which all our experiences are filtered.

These different layers can be stimulated and strengthened through daily practice of Pranayama, asana and meditation, particularly working on Pratyahara, Dhyana and Dharana.

Moreover, in Ayurveda, the sessions of well-being take into account the human physiology and the 7 layers that make up the skin.
The daily application of oil allows the active ingredients like alkaloids that makes up the oil, to successively reach the 7 layers of the skin (on the first day of application, the alkaloid reaches the first layer of the skin, on the second day, it reaches the 2nd layer and so on).

The number of days of application is defined during the hygienic-diet interview and the duration of application will be a multiple of 7 (14, 21, 28, 35 or 42) and will be offered to the customer in order to obtain the desired full effects.

Application durations of one, three or five days are recommended for people seeking better health and well-being.

*Each participant will be assigned a specific protocol and based of this all activities at AYURVEDIC sessions will be personalized*

Ayurvedic Cuisine

«We believe that the kitchen is the pharmacy & food is the medicine»

Food is a vital element which determines your health & immunity, so we take extra care in offering your nutritious meals.

Throughout the retreat, the meals served are vegetarian, vegan or sattvic: a diet that detoxifies, cleanses and purifies the body while strengthening our immune defenses.

Indian cuisine uses the concept of UPASHAYA, or the principle of trial and error.

The principles of Ayurveda were based on the importance of the three humors Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

The fundamental principles of Shadrasa (or 6 tastes) such as sweet, bitter, astringent, salty, acid and pungent are the foundations of Indian cuisine.

Our Indian chef will prepare healthy food in pure Ayurvedic tradition which will give you a harmonious feeling of well-being & balance of body and mind.
