Ayurveda stands for ‘science of life’. Ayurveda as a health philosophy is thousands of years old. This mother of all therapies is about balancing mind, body and soul. A cure traditionally consists of an Ayurvedic diet including plenty of vegetables and fruit - and sometimes a small amount of chicken or fish - morning and evening yoga, massages, and herbal and steam baths. An Ayurveda practitioner will tailor the programme to you personally based on your dosha type. Are India and Sri Lanka too far for you? No problem. Ayurveda is on-trend! That’s why more and more European spa & wellness hotels are offering Ayurveda retreats with individualised treatments, a dosha-specific diet and daily yoga and meditation. The hotels source the knowledge, experience and products (and sometimes even the therapists themselves) from Asia. Interested in an Ayurveda holiday to Slovenia? Please contact our wellbeing experts.
