Yoga Hall at Oceano with Soraya

Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life,Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital while realising their full human potential. Providing guidelines on ideal daily and seasonal routines, diet, behavior and the proper use of our senses, Ayurveda reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.

Ayurvedic Treatments will vary depending on the individual and will be decided after your doctors assessment on the first day.

A  diet to balance all body types will be prepared daily as a part of your retreat. Cleansing Herb tea will also be included.

Herbs/medicine may also be prescribed as a part of your assessment and the cost is covered in the retreat.

Your treatment will only be decided after consultation with the Doctors!!


*If you require Gluten Free or other dietary requirements please let us know – this can be arranged.
