The 6-day retreat is all about reforming your body and attuning it back to its natural functionality with the promising ways of Ayurveda. A basic principle of Ayurveda is to find a fine balance among the 5 elements of the body in order to sustain a healthy body & mind. This retreat is fully focused on healing your body using Yogic Kriyas, Ayurvedic Panchkarma therapies, Full body massages with Herbal medicinal oils and an effectual combination of Diet and Herbal drinks; a unique customized regime designed to work towards balancing the Body Doshas Vaata, Pitta and Kapha.

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.

Ayur The Ayurvedic Panchkarma Retreat is an in-built recreational establishment at Yoga Adi School. This 6- day Ayurvedic Healing Retreat will be conducted at the SPA, where you will be treated by our well experienced team of Panchkarma therapists.

The Yogic Kriyas and the Ayurvedic Panchkarma therapies will include the following:
Abhyangam is a form of Ayurvedic medicine that involves massage of the body with large amounts of warm oil. The oil is often pre-medicated with herbs for specific conditions. Abhyanga can be done as part of the steps of Panchakarma therapy, especially in the first stage: Purva Karma (pre-treatment), or as its own therapy. It is often followed by Svedana therapy, a warm bath, yoga or laying out in the sun. Many times Abhyanga is performed by two or more massage therapists working in sync but it can also be done by oneself. Oils used can vary depending on the season and the individual’s constitution (dosha) but commonly used oils include sesame, coconut, sunflower, mustard and almond.
Shirodhara is a form of Ayurveda therapy that involves gently pouring liquids over the forehead. The name comes from the Sanskrit words Shiro (head) and Dhara (flow). The liquids used in Shirodhara depend on what is being treated, but can include oil, milk, buttermilk, coconut water, or even plain water. Shirodhara has been used to treat a variety of conditions including eye diseases, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, graying of hair, neurological disorders, memory loss, insomnia, hearing impairment, tinnitus, vertigo, meniere's disease and certain types of skin diseases like psoriasis. It is also used non-medicinally for its relaxing properties to stimulate the nerves in the head which works to achieve balance and symmetry in the body and mind, relieves headaches, enhances clarity and focus and dismisses mental fatigue.
Trataka is the practice of staring at some external object. This fixed gazing is a method of meditation which involves concentrating on a single point such as a small object, black dot or candle flame. It is used in yoga as a way of developing concentration, strengthening the eyes, and stimulating the aja (Forehead area) chakra. As a staring meditation, Trataka is the technique of saadhakas (spiritual aspirants) which is supposed to develop psychic powers. With the ability to cease the restlessness of eyes seeking something or the other, by fixing the gaze, the restless mind too comes to a halt. Trataka is said to enhance the ability to concentrate. It may increase the power of memory and bring the mind in a state of awareness, attention and focus.This exercise acts on the centers of smell and sight; it stimulates the nervous system. It is said to control the ciliary (blink) reflex and stimulate the pineal gland.
In Ayurveda, Nasya therapy is a process where the Herbalized oils and liquid medicines are administered through the nostrils. Since nose is the gateway of the head, the therapy is highly effective in curing a number of diseases pertaining to the head, if it is performed systematically. The therapy cleanses and opens the channels of the head, thereby improving the process of oxygenation (prana), which has a direct influence on the functioning of brain. Because it keeps the eyes, nose and ear healthy. It also prevents the early greying of hair and bear.
Jal Neti kriya (Nasal cleaning) is a cleansing practice of the sinus passages with warm saline water. Yogis have practiced it for centuries for its innumerable and powerful benefits. It is also called Neti or Saline Nasal Irrigation. In yoga, it has been used for its extremely powerful physical, psychological and spiritual benefits. However, in the modern world Jal Neti has gained immense popularity because of its dramatic effect on the sinuses. It solves the sinus infection and allergy problems without the use of drugs with immediate, immense and sustained results and without side effects.
