Ayurvedic retreats

The Ayurvedic retreat is an exceptional moment, far away from the hustle of daily life; it is truly an appointment with oneself. It is a moment where one finds the knowhow of well being, often forgotten despite its simplicity and discovers the joy and serenity which we lack so much.

It is a complete set of treatments and massages,
given in the most authentic Indian tradition,  a true ... "ART OF LIVING"!

Enjoy the senses of life!

The Ayurvedic retreats Ojaskar, Karshan, Kayakalpa, Tejas, Lavanya, Shanti and maternity  are all developed from Ayurveda, the traditional Indian science of vital energy to improve and prolong the quality of live. The Ayurvedic retreat draws its inspiration straight from the profound sources of Ayurveda (5000 years old and more) and is certainly more than a simple wellness retreat: a deep resourcing, a complete submergence into the five elements which constitutes the universe and ourselves (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether), a discovery of our underlying nature and a better knowledge of ourselves.

The Shirodhara cure is a very important retreat for our civilization filled with stress, worries, anxiety and burnout.

Shir means the head and dhara means a fluid, Shirodhara is a treatment where a trickle of warm sesame oil is poured over the forehead, from left to right and from right to left.

It calms the mind and spirit very strongly and works on the nervous system and endocrine glands, which helps to increase immunity!

Traditionally in India, one receives only one Shirodhara treatment per day, the rest of the time is devoted to meditation, contemplation, walking and yoga, which allows to feel the deep effects of Shirodhara.

We offer you all year round to receive this excellent treatment for 7 days in a row, accompanied by a yoga session before breakfast.

The rest of the time will be free to write, paint, play music, meditate, relax and walk around.

An unforgettable experience to recharge yourself, eliminate all sources of stress and rediscover your inner serenity!

Ojas means light. Ojas literally means “that increases the light of the body, its immunity”.

This is the classical retreat of well being. Do not worry about anything, except to relax more and more deeply and to clear your mind! This is the basic condition for your “re-birth”.
Our treatments evolve each day, according to the principles of Ayurveda, for a greater efficiency: shirodhara (pouring of warm oil on the forehead), pichauli (body massage with warm oil), shashtishalipindsweda (massage with ayurvedic herbs and rice), massage of 7 postures, Kansu ® (feet massage with a bowl), sudation, etc.
