An introduction to Ayurveda
Are you familiar with Ayurveda? Or do oil massages and Indian cuisine instantly spring to mind? As the world’s oldest form of health teaching, it is true that Ayurveda has its roots in present-day India, but its fundamentals can be optimally transferred to the Western hemisphere. After all, its objective is universal: balance.
The connection between physical health and spiritual well-being has now been confirmed by conventional medicine. Ayurveda, the over 3,500-year-old health system, builds on this finding. If an imbalance exists between the body and mind, illness follows. The aim of Ayurveda is to restore balance and target the problem specifically.
Aims of the “An introduction to Ayurveda” programme:
The three-day “An introduction to Ayurveda” break allows you to experience the positive effects Ayurveda can have even in a short space of time. You will find out your individual constitution (dosha and body composition), get an insight into the Ayurvedic nutritional philosophy and its principles, and learn how to implement them in your everyday life. The “An introduction to Ayurveda” break comprises light and Mediterranean Ayurveda cuisine and includes specially tailored therapeutic treatments, physical exercise and relaxation sessions. These approaches can restore balance to your inner strengths, remove detrimental toxins and stimulate the body’s self-healing powers. It is ideal for beginners without any prior knowledge.
You do not need any prior knowledge of Ayurveda but even if you are already convinced of its benefits, this compact programme is the perfect introductory option or an ideal refresher.
