Ayurveda therapy

 

The most important aspect of a Yoga/Meditation/Ayurveda Retreat is that you will be away from all the distractions of life. You will be in a peaceful and beautiful setting with other people who are on the quest for the same things as you. The food will be nutritious and delicious. The sights and scenery exotic. All you have to do is show up, we will take care of ALL local transportation arrangements as well as hotel, food and extra activities.

 

Yoga is an ancient Indian body of knowledge that dates back more than 5000 years ago. The word ‘Yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit Word ‘yuj’ which means ‘to unite or integrate’. Yoga therefore is about the union of a person’s own consciousness and the universal consciousness. The Yogis formulated a way to achieve and maintain this balance through exercise, conscious breathing, and meditation - the three main Yoga structures.

Meditation is a practice by which there is constant observation of the mind. Through the practice of Meditation, you will achieve a greater sense of purpose and strength of will. It will also help you achieve a clearer mind, improve your concentration, and discover the wisdom and tranquility within you.

Visiting the ‘Tree God’ - This tree is situated in a deep forest and is more than 15 feet in diameter and the height has not yet been measured but one can safely say it is more than 40 meters as the top is not visible from the ground. The space around that tree is absolutely magical. It is so silent that one can listen to all the breathing happening in the woods. On the way back we will also visit the source of water which is supposed to be as ancient as the mountains. This is an experience which one cannot describe in words. This sure is a wish fulfillment tree – an experience of practically all those who have been here and we are trying our best not to turn this exclusive Oak tree into a ‘tourist attraction’.
