Yoga

The term yoga comes from a Sanskrit word that means yoke or union. Traditionally, yoga is a method that joins the individual self with the divine, universal spirit, or cosmic consciousness. Physical and mental exercises are designed to help achieve this goal and also called self-transcendence or enlightenment. On the physical level, yoga postures are called asanas designed to tone, strengthen, and align your body perfectly. These postures are performed to make the spine supple and healthy, also to make blood flow to all the organs, glands, and tissues, keeping all the body systems healthy. On a mental level, yoga uses breathing techniques and meditation to quiet, clarify, and discipline the mind. It is a vital part of long-term Ayurvedic treatments.

Meditation

Meditation is the attainment of a deeply relaxed state of mind and body. One's rate of metabolism is said to slow down causing the release of anxiety, stress and even pain control. Breathing exercises, repeating mantras, and sitting in silence help relax the mind and reduce focus on the stressful situations that surround us. Meditation is a component of serious Ayurvedic treatment that helps bring harmony to the mind and body.

Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a gentle method of treating the root cause of illness of both mind and body. It is a science of healthy living and it has two aims. They are to preserve health and to cure a body afflicted by disease. This holistic form of therapy utilizes the diet, herbs, oils, animal products, yoga and meditation to heal and rejuvenate both the body and mind. Ayurveda believes the life forces, or doshas, of an individual must be balanced for good health. What can Ayurveda do? Ayurvedic practitioners study the patient with the object of restoring balance, getting to the root of the problem and treating that. Ayurveda makes use of the island's natural resources like herbs, leaves, flowers, barks, roots, and berries and uses them to cleanse the blood and the body of impurities.

    "Snorkeling with whales is a very exciting and adventurous activity. I went to Mirissa with two of my Polish friends and we engaged in a whale-watching tour. First day, we hadn't any luck of finding whales, we only saw dolphins. But on the second day, we were lucky as we got some clear close shots. Thank God the weather condition was also at its very best. The captain was very friendly and the crew was the best in their job. I highly recommend them."

    "We saw a lot of whales and dolphins, it was fun and absolutely worth it. They made sure that everyone was happy. If you didn't see any whales on that day, you can get some money back."
