Ayurveda relies on the concept of balancing Doshas (body’s energy), enhancing the power of digestion, the optimum function of dhatus (fundamental elements of the body), efficient elimination of waste products, and the balanced blissful state of mind, soul, and senses. All therapies and techniques are curative and promotive in nature.
Practiced by the great sages of ancient India, Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of holistic medicine defined as Knowledge of Life (Ayu meaning life and Veda meaning knowledge). The Ayurveda program offers a truly authentic, comprehensive, and customized experience that is designed for each individual guest.
The experienced practitioners and specialists create a personalized wellness program that is focused on restoring the health and balance of guests through Eastern holistic therapies and guidance from an authentic Indian perspective.
