Ceylon, Sri Lanka. Where the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean gently lap the golden sandy shoreline. It is no wonder why Sri Lanka is the most sold Lonely Planet Guidebook and currently tops the New York Times Travel List. A culture so rich, colorful and welcoming; leaving will be the hardest thing you do.
Sri Lanka is the birthplace to the time tested, medical philosophy of Ayurveda. Ayurveda is sanskrit for life knowledge and is focused on balancing our bodies, individually, into a state of equilibrium. It differs strongly from allopathy as it is a personalized approach to healing and wellbeing, considering our different constitutions and paths in life.
