Here you’ll find retreats we trust which are dedicated to the wise and ancient healing art of ayurveda. Ayurveda is probably the oldest system of healthcare on earth and it doesn’t hold with half-hearted measures – its aim is to attain perfect health and vibrant wellbeing. You might consider visiting Worcestershire in the UK, where you’ll experience first-hand some deliciously fragrant tridosha oils, or head to France for some soothing rural wellness and tips on how to incorporate ayurveda into your lifestyle back home. An ayurveda retreat is ideal if you feel in need of a total health overhaul or just want to relax deeply. Most dedicated ayurveda retreats offer programmes dedicated to helping you with a specific goal such as de-stressing or weight loss, and most offer panchakarma, the intense ayurvedic detox programme which involves therapies, medicines and meals tailored to your dosha or body type. Or you can explore ayurveda in a lighter way with a wellbeing retreat that offers Ayurveda treatments or consultations as part of a broader healthy holiday. In Sri Lanka you can combine it with yoga and osteopathy. Happily, whatever you choose, ayurveda will encourage you to work with your body rather than against it.
