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.
NEW: AYURVEDIC STAY
This new type of retreat, or rather stay is based on the concept of Dinacharya, the daily routine in Ayurveda, focusing on all the daily activities in terms of diet, yoga, Ayurvedic care for body and soul.
Yoga & pranayama class, meditative walks and Shanti path will be an integral part of your Ayurvedic stay, just like Ayurvedic cooking / diet classes, lectures, meditations, films etc … to find Joy and Health!
Half-day treatments will be offered to you with the possibility of receiving additional à la carte treatments during your free time.
Personalize your Ayurvedic cure / stay
It’s very simple: you now have the choice between two formulas:
. Basic Ayurvedic stay that you can personalize by choosing complementary treatments à la carte according to your needs and desires.
. Ayurvedic Ojaskar retreat; the classic wellness retreat including traditional Ayurvedic treatments such as Abhyanga, Udvartana, Pichauli, Shastishalipindswedan, …
Select your retreat
It’s very simple! The Ayurvedic retreat cleanses the body of toxins that have accumulated over years, regardless of their origin. Each ayurvedic retreat allows the regeneration of cells, the strengthening of immunity, improves the blood and energy circulation. The different types of Ayurvedic retreat can be personalised. All our retreats follow the methods developed by Kiran Vyas and leading Ayurvedic doctors. They are adapted to the rhythm of life in the West while respecting traditional methods.
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.
Kaya means body, kalp means transformation – rejuvenation.
This is the retreat for maharajas and maharanis, a retreat of rejuvenation, a genuine experience of a bath of youth, real happiness for the body and the mind.
This retreat includes various treatments such as shirodhara with Ayurvedic oils, pizzichili (royal treatment of the entire body with 5 liters of special Ayurvedic oils), ghritdhara, abhyanga, shashtishalipindsweda, kesardudh (nourishing massage with milk with saffron), Kansu ®, sudation.

Beautiful place conducive to well-being.
The team of this week was of great quality: warm, available, flexible, attentive, patient, helpful… they have assumed the double responsibility of care and stewardship.
I especially appreciate the “spiritual” and very human approach to care = the notion of trust between us, respect, delicacy and gentleness… so many elements that allowed me to relax not only physically but also subtly.
Being a week in a place where nobody fights and argues is really nice! The absence of aggression is what makes me feel better… the massages as well of course! But the harmony, the good mood of the therapists as well as of the other guests, was a beautiful gift. I am leaving with the beautiful energy that massages provide, will it be sustainable, that’s the question!
But I know there’s a place where I feel good, and doing good, and that's great to know!
My retreat was delicious.
I’m gaining flexibility and energy.
I came to the end of my limit, and I and leaving full of good spirit and energy!
Great presence and quality of the therapists, wonderful setting.
Paradise exists here at Tapovan....there are even apples on the trees!
