They are offering a very unique opportunity for you to be amidst nature and totally relax whilst they look after you using the knowledge of century old vedic traditions and mindfulness practices.
You will arrive to a completely natural environment with no man-made distractions. The idea is that when the physical body is not too active and there are not much distractions to stimulate the mind, it turns inwards into understanding and feeling your own emotions and cognitive behavior patterns.
Most of modern day life is so full of distractions that you are left with little or no time to really examine your inner self. As a result, you become so unaware of your own emotions. Once you arrive, friendly staff will help you settle into your cottage.
The next most important appointment for you will be the sitting with your Ayurvedic doctor for a detailed consultation regarding your health issues, treatments, medicines, etc. Treatments, healthy food diet, yoga sessions, relaxation period during your stay here are the important topics during that consultation.
Your first days treatment will be light as the body needs time to settle in to the environmental changes, effects of flying and jet lag or any kinds of travel mode. Ayurveda is very much a gentle push to the body to help and recover itself or get to its optimum balance. It works very much with the speed of your body. Introductions of treatments to the body is done gently and gradually.
