The philosophy of Ayurveda

Ayurveda teaches that the mind has the greatest influence over the body toward sickness and health. The goal is to contact your inner intelligence (or mind), bring it to peace and balance, and then extend peace and balance throughout your body. The guiding principle is the interconnection of all things, a holistic perspective that health is not just a lack or illness, but a higher state of consciousness that allows vitality, well-being, creativity, and joy into your life.

Illness is a blockage or disruption to the flow of one's energy and information that creates a sense of separation from the field. When your body is sick or displaying symptoms, there is a need to restore balance, eliminate the blockage, and re-establish the healthy flow of energy and information.

Principles for restoring and maintaining mind-body balance can be sought through:

  • Meditation
  • Diet
  • Exercise
  • Sleep
  • Eliminating negativity
  • Nurturing relationships

The doshas

There are five elements that make up everything within and around your body. There are space, air, fire, water, and earth. Biological systems weave these five forces into three primary patterns known as dosha. Doshas are the mind-body constitutions that each individual has, but everyone is a combination of all three.

All three doshas are present in every cell, tissue, and organ, but what differs individuals from one another is the unique way you combine all three, determining the distinct qualities of your mind and body, leaving you with dominant tendencies towards one dosha.

The three doshas are Pitta, Vata, and Kapha. Pitta is comprised of the elements fire and water and administers of digestion and metabolism. If Pitta predominates in your nature, you will tend to be intense, intelligent, and goal-oriented with a strong appetite for life.

Vata is comprised of space and air, which regulates movement and change in your minds and bodies. If Vata is a dominant in your system, you tend to be thin, light, enthusiastic, energetic, and changeable. Kapha is made from earth and water, maintaining and protecting the integrity and structure of your mind and body. As a Kapha dominant dosha, you tend to be easy-going, methodical, and nurturing.

The principle goal of Ayurveda is to determine your dominant dosha and to find balance with the three bodies, which are the mind, body, and soul. Finding balance comes from using nutritional diets, herbs, aromatherapy, massage treatments, music, and meditation.

This retreat will take place right in the middle of San Jose del Cabo and Los Cabos Mexico off the main highway, which is a little piece of heaven that provides a perfect getaway under the sun.

    "From the moment we arrived and walked through the gate, we knew we were in a very special place. The view from the "last yellow house on El Tule Hill" is breathtaking and truly panoramic. The entire facility has been built to celebrate air, light, earth, energy, water and SPACE! We signed up for Rukhsana's Classic Indian Cooking Class, but the Retreat offers that and so much more: meditation retreats, bed and breakfast, yoga retreats, private events, meditation classes, and Ayurvedic spa treatments."


    "Rukhsana exudes genuine and sincere warmth and generously educated us on many elements of Ayurvedic practice. She walked us through the base component (she calls it Rukhsana's Masala Base) of the three dishes we learned how to prepare: Eggplant Curry (Bartha), Basmati Rice (Pilau), and Chicken Curry (Chicken Masala). I can honestly say that I have NEVER tasted Indian food this good - it was truly sublime! The love and passion with which it was prepared was evident in every bite!"


    "I am so grateful to have found Rukhsana's Wellness and Heavenly Retreat. I plan to come back for meditation, to learn more about food as medicine, for Ayurvedic spa treatments, to bring friends for cooking classes, and to spend time in this very special place with Rukhsana, who is a very gifted and special woman."

    "I went there with my friends, Sandi and Karin, to Rukhsana's cooking class and I must say, this was one of the best highlights of my trip. The food was absolutely delish and Rukhsana showed us her special way of cooking with all the wonderful spices that made the end result so worth our time spent with her. The retreat was a must attend! Sunday meditation sessions are a real experience and now I'm hooked, so I hope I can find a place to continue going when I return to Minnesota. Rukhsana has grace, humor and a down-to-earth attitude that makes you feel very comfortable to be around her."

    "What can I say? Rukshanna is a gem of a woman! Her retreat is an oasis. Her passion for her teachings is abundant! I was fortunate to have been invited to one of her Indian cooking classes where she shared her amazing wealth of knowledge about the power of cooking with ghee, as well as making four dishes with her masala. It was easily the best Indian food I have ever eaten!"

    "Yesterday, I joined her for sunrise meditation at Palmilla beach and am so happy to be getting back in to meditation that I will be joining her and her Sunday morning group at the retreat. So grateful that she has come in to my life. Like she told me yesterday, the teacher and the student always come together at the right moment."
