Why Every Health Seeker Should Travel to India
Are you looking for a natural and holistic approach to health and wellness? How about a life of peace and purpose?
With the help of the world’s oldest healing science, Karma Being’s Yoga & Ayurveda Retreat to India from the 3rd – 13th November can offer you that and so much more…
Ayurveda, a traditional system of medicine originating in India over 5000 years ago, has gained popularity in recent years as a natural and holistic approach to health and wellness. With its focus on balancing the body, mind, and spirit, Ayurveda offers a unique perspective on health that is both comprehensive and personalised.
The word “Ayurveda” comes from the Sanskrit words “ayur” (life) and “veda” (knowledge). According to Ayurvedic philosophy, the body is made up of five elements – earth, water, fire, air, and ether – which combine to form three doshas, or energies – vata, pitta, and kapha. Each person has a unique combination of these energies, which determines their physical, mental, and emotional characteristics.
Ayurvedic treatments aim to bring the body back into balance by addressing the root cause of any imbalances. This may involve dietary changes, herbal remedies, massage, physical treatments, yoga, meditation and pranayama. Ayurveda also emphasises the importance of a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise, stress reduction, and adequate sleep.
One of the key benefits of Ayurveda is its personalised approach to health. Rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach, Ayurvedic practitioners take into account each person’s unique constitution and health history when designing a treatment plan. This individualised approach allows for a more effective and targeted approach to healing.
In addition to its emphasis on individualised care, Ayurveda also promotes a holistic approach to health. Rather than focusing solely on treating specific symptoms or diseases, Ayurveda seeks to address the root cause of any imbalances. By treating the whole person – body, mind, and spirit – Ayurveda aims to create a state of optimal health and wellness.
Your retreat begins with a detailed consultation with an Ayurvedic doctor who will carefully design Ayurveda experiences to treat, heal, restore and rejuvenate your health. Each day on retreat begins with a yoga session and includes 2 x Daily Ayurveda Treatments (prescribed especially for you by the Doctor), meditation, nourishing food and relaxation. Dotted throughout your retreat you will experience an Ayurvedic cooking class, mindfulness workshops and Yoga Nidra which will arm you with invaluable life skills to return home with.
