HEALING IS IN YOUR HANDSSURIYA AGNI MUDRA
Surya Mudra best known as the weight loss mudra. Fire is what spurs the digestive system, hence this mudra’s corresponding popularity for facilitating weight loss!
It is easy. Hold your hands in front of you. Bend the ring fingers of each hand in such a way that the tip of the ring finger should mound your thumb. Gently press down your ring finger with your thumb a bit lower. Make sure that the other fingers should be spread out in a straight manner.
The modern magazines offers us photos of models with perfect bodies, but the ancient philosophy and treatments of ayurveda is designed to make you feel comfortable and healthy in your own body, restore your equilibrium and relieve illnesses.
The most of the ayurveda resorts are preparing individually designed ayurveda programmes.
We have divided the
m into 12 categories, which can help you to target the treatment of
your health problem.
We allow only one choice, because combining different treatments in
a short time period could be contraproductive. (For example: If you have a problem your
knee and yo
u wish to lose the weigh, the treatments applied at the same time could cause
a problem with pita balance
higher pita level in your body could help you to digest food,
but it could cause inflammation in your knee).
However, in case you have any specific
health problem, we recommend the consultation
with our ayurveda doctor or expert before you book your stay in
ayurveda resort or
retreat. For patients who would like to go through panchakarma treatment or have more
than one health issue to address, th
e ayurveda doctors will decide the appropriate
treatment protocol based on consultation and health report from your doctor. Say
‘Namaste’ to us and fill the consultation form, after submitting it we will contact you in 24
When is the best time for Ayurveda treatment? Generally, we would say, anytime it is required, especially if it's for some particular ailment. Don't wait for some particular season or month for the ayurveda treatment it might only worsen the health problems.
Ancient ayurveda scriptures recommend the monsoon month of Karkidakam (July and August) ideal for all ayurveda rejuvenation practices especially panchakarma treatment. The rainy season, during the monsoon from June to September, is an ideal time for Ayurvedic treatment because the atmosphere remains cool, moist, and dust free. This helps the body’s pores to open up, making it most receptive to herbal oils and therapy.
Monsoon season is attractive also from price point of view. Some resorts offer almost 30% discount.
The roots of ayurveda go deep into the tropical soil of south India and Sri Lanka, where it was practiced as far back as 5000 years ago. The most of the traditional resorts are based in India’s state Kerala.Traditionally, thanks to abundant sunshine, rich soil and generous rainfall, this land was the source of a rich variety of medicinal plants and herbs.
It has always been the ideal place for natural medicines to work at their highest levels of potency.
Traditionally for intense ayurveda treatment are recommended resorts situated on the foot of the tropical mountains, where the climate supports the healing process. But the healing environment is also important.
Many foreigners, who are taking ayurveda treatment in India or Sri Lanka are from cold or landlocked countries and for them, the beach tropical scenery and the sunlight are very important elements. The good feeling can support the healing process, but usually ayurveda resorts situated close to the beach are very strict and do not recommend to patients to walk or take a bath in the sea during the treatment process.
In India, especially in Kerala, it is quite easy to choose high quality ayurveda certified resort or hospitals. Few resorts were able to receive NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Health Care Providers), the highest recognition of the Indian government in the hospitals and health care sector. They are offering very strict and intense ayurveda healing & detox programme and often minimum stay is 14 nights.
Kerala government elaborated certification standards for ayurveda resorts and the list of certificated resorts can be checked on Kerala tourism website. Since last year two categories were recognized, but legislative had changed and now there are three categories of certified ayurveda resorts: Ayur Silver, Ayur Gold, Ayur Diamond. Ayur Silver is the category having minimum facilities and Ayur Diamond is category having highest facilities. All certified resorts offer high quality range of ayurveda treatments from relaxing and holiday programmes to strict and intense ayurveda healing & detox programmes. The length of the stay depend on chosen ayurveda programme.
Note: Under the ayurveda homestays we are listing all the ayurveda resorts and retreats with less than 10 rooms.
Ayurveda believes, that our kitchen can be our pharmacy and food can be medicine. If you treat disease with the ideal drug, you can cure it. But, if you are eating a proper food, you don't need the medicine. That is why, if you are interested in intense ayurveda healinganddetox programme, we recommend you to choose your diet programme very carefully and ask for individually prepared ayurvedic food.
But if you are interested only in relax and healthy ayurveda inspired holiday, then probably you will more enjoy the stay in the resorts, where ayurveda food is served as a part of the buffet divided according to three doshas (Vata, Pita, Kapha).
Note: Ayurveda is not against non-vegetarian food, but during the ayurveda treatment is recommended vegetarian diet, which can be digest more easily and improve purification process of the body. The most of the ayurveda resorts do not offer coffee, tea or alcohol.
Each ayurveda programme includes at least once a day a yoga or meditation lesson in different level according to patient’s need. It must be taken into the consideration, that yoga lessons only supplement ayurveda treatment. Sometimes for foreigners, who associate yoga with the image of a healthy flexible body of yogi in acrobatic position, can be yoga lessons during the ayurveda treatment perceived as very static.
The yoga exercises are usually very slow, easy and peaceful. It can be practised by anyone. The target of it is not to learn complicated yoga positions (asanas), but activation of the body energy flow, mind peacefulness and reconnection with your own self.
In Sanskrit the word yoga means connection with yourself but also with environment around you. This connection is impossible without a healthy body, steady mind and clear consciousness, therefore yoga builds on ayurvedic principles. Yoga programmes target not only the physical problems such as back pain, join pain or head ache, but also mental conditions of the patients. The most of the psychosomatic and civilisation diseases are stress-related, that is why the main focus is on peaceful energy flow in the body and calmness of the mind.
Note: If you are interested in intense or advanced yoga programme, we recommend you not to combine it with intense ayurveda healing programme. In long term perspective it can by contraproductive.
As old saying states: “Money can't buy health”. The word price for ayurveda treatment has different value.If you have a serious health problem, we highly recommend to search for a right doctor and treatment, not for the lowest rates. But if you would like to follow traditional advices and save some money, then monsoon season is attractive also from price point of view. Some resorts offer almost 30% discount.
Ayurveda programme rates include: accommodation in ayurveda resort, ayurveda doctor consultations during the stay, all therapies as per ayurveda treatment programme, ayurveda vegetarian diet (all meals during the day), daily yoga and meditation classes, transfer from and to the airport, all taxes and local fees.
The ayurveda holistic system is designed to make you feel comfortable and healthy in your own body, restore your equilibrium and relieve illnesses. Being slim does not mean being healthy or beautiful.
Overweight is not just a function of diet itself, it is related to genetic factors, lifestyle and daily habits. It causes other health issues like body pain, breathing, blood pressure problems, stress, diabetes and others. Therefore, managing and achieving the appropriate weight for your age and body type, requires detail individual consultation with ayurveda doctor. Minimum stay is 7 or 14 days.
