Ayurveda is based on the concept that the universe is made up of five elements air, fire, water, earth and celestial matters. These elements are represented in human body by three energies or Doshas in the form of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. And any imbalance in these Doshas makes the body lose its equilibrium. The distinct balance of these energies varies from one individual to another and the well being of a person depends on getting the right balance of the three Doshas (or tridoshas). Our retreat provides specific lifestyle and guidelines for people to keep the Doshas in balance to remain healthy.
