You are invited to visit Maharishi Ayurveda Gesundheitszentrum to join the "Effortless Thinning" program. The health center is situated in the beautiful surroundings of the Swiss Alps where you will enjoy traditional Ayurvedic treatments. Your stay starts with an Ayurvedic health check-up. In addition to your massages and treatments some time remains for rest, outdoors activities, walking in nature, yoga, meditation, evening lecture, listening to Gandharva-Veda music, and many more.
The rooms for guests are situated in the main building and the Vastu chalet. Both houses are connected by a hallway. The range of rooms covers basic rooms with a sink (WC and shower in the corridor) up to 3-room apartments with bathroom.
The health centre is located in the small hotel, Pilgerheim, now operating as a boarding house with emphasis on simplicity and conviviality. The guests appreciate the comfortable and family-like atmosphere, the peaceful environment.
The Pilgerheim offers some very nice rooms with a good view over the mountains and the lake to the east and south. On sunny days, balconies are the ideal spot to relax while enjoying the view.
The rooms in the Vastu Chalet - new building in the background, mountain side - are more quiet and exclusive. The meals are taken in the dining room, on a self-service basis. At lunch and dinner an Ayurvedic buffet, prepared mostly with organic ingredients, awaits you there.
In summer, take a tray and enjoy your lunch outside on our terrace, or at a table on the vast garden-terrace of the Sonnenberg: beautiful view of the Urnersee and its nautic activities, surrounded by magnificent mountains - some of them culminating at 3000 meters .
The health center is located in the small hotel, Pilgerheim, in the beautiful surroundings of the Swiss Alps. It is located 850 meters above sea level in the mountain village of Seelisberg. Enjoy the impressive panorama of the mountains and Lake Lucerne outside your window.
During your stay you can enjoy a quiet afternoon on the garden terrace, or take a stroll through the nearby woods. Below the house, on the shores of the lake, is the historic Rütli where the Helvetic Confederation was founded 720 years ago.
In the summer nothing compares to a boatride on one of Lake Lucerne's famous, nearly 100 year-old paddle steamers. The dock is comfortably reached using the Treib-Seelisberg cable car.
If you feel the pull of the mountains, a cable car brings you above the "Seeli", the little lake, to "Alp Weid" (1300 meters) where you may like to drink a tea from fresh mountains herbs. From Emmetten, the next village, a cable-car eases the way to the Niederbauen which offers a beautiful panorama at 1575 meters altitude.
You will be served 6 Ayurvedic vegetarian meals.
The following treatments are included in the package:
Treatment and consultation rooms are close to living rooms, in connecting buildings: you can access them without having to step outside. Most treatment rooms are located in the Vastu Chalet, behind the main building (the Pilgerheim). These rooms are special for their quality of silence.
Each treatment room has its own resting room and bath room, increasing the experience of comfort. The general atmosphere is very regenerating. Equipment is simple and functional. The pastel shades easily induce relaxation.
From Luzern, beside the train station, take the boat to Treib. It takes about 2 hours but can be very nice in summer. From Treib, take a cable car to Seelisberg (10 minutes). From there, it is a 15 minutes walk up to the health center or take the postal bus (in general every hour). Maharishi Ayurveda Gesundheitszentrum could also pick you up.
The journey from Lucerne to Seelisberg by taxi costs about 120 CHF and is about a 30-minute drive.
