Introduction to Ayurveda
Ayurveda is the oldest and most comprehensive healing modality on our planet. It originated in India thousands of years ago (evidence reveals it could be almost 6000 years old) and is considered more than just a medical system. It is a science of life (Ayur=life and Veda=science). Just as animals and plants live in harmony with nature, the healing system of Ayurveda helps to bring us back into equilibrium with our true selves, by using the inherent principles of nature.
Our programme is designed to give beginners a complete and comprehensive introduction to the principles of Ayurveda in a setting that could only pamper your every sense. Our accompanying Ayurveda expert will teach the theory of Ayurveda as well as diagnose your body type and explain the relevant emotional issues that go with it. He will recommend appropriate treatments which you can enjoy in the elegant spa rooms. We are confident you will return with a comprehensive knowledge of how to balance your daily living the Ayurvedic way. Alongside, our accompanying Yoga and Meditation expert will lead sessions on various kinds of meditations and yoga asanas, adding an element of composure in your lives. This is a great experience of learning about yourself and your health as well as how to live a balanced life going forward.
The teachings will be supported by a series of Ayurvedic massages, Yoga sessions and calming Meditations amidst the tranquil surrounds of Ananda in the Himalayas.
