“To revive happiness in someone’s heart is the best way of healing. There is no medicine for an unhappy and restless mind. Ayurveda teaches something very profound: Be a good human."

“What is ayurveda? How is this ancient medical system connected with yoga, meditation, healthy food, relaxation in nature and modern life style?”

Ayurveda Trails are dedicated to everyone, who is searching answers to these questions. It does not want to be anything else, but art expression of healthy life style inspired by Indian ancient healing traditions, creating harmony with the dynamics of contemporary life.

The word ayurveda means "science of life" and our philosophy is "art of travel". We would like to connect science and art. For us ayurveda is also a symbol of personal evolution, a way how to heal not only our body, but also our soul. It is a quest for the right journey to reach a balance between human beings and nature. The journey is different for each person, and we respect that difference.

If you decide to explore the world of ayurveda, we’ll connect you with our team of ayurvedic doctors, yoga, vastu (Indian feng shui) and travel experts, who will help you to choose an ayurvedic resort or hospital and design a treatment package according your needs.

TEST HEALING 2017

Payyanur Kolkali (literally, stick dance of Payyanur) is a folk art form that is believed to have existed for more than a millennium. Charadukuthikali is a type of Kolkali popular at Payyanur and nearby areas. This art form originated from Kalaripayattu, the martial art form of Kerala. The dancers will have the 'kola' or the stick in their hands attached to a string and as they move around in tune with the song and weave patterns. Aspinwall had an opportunity to witness this amazing art form performed by Mahadevadesai Vayanasala Kolkali Sangham, Payyanur.

"Here is an art form that is an intrinsic part of life in Payyannur and in turn one that finds its roots in life in the locale. Back home it's almost customary to learn the art form when you are a child itself. I myself am one of the lucky ones to have learnt it. Yet, not much is known about it beyond the walls of the town. Payyannur Kolkali is something that I hold close to my heart. I was always troubled by the fact that not much of authentic study has been done on the art form. Also, for decades now it has been outshined by other more popular versions of Kolkali, particularly the Mappila Kolkali. We wanted to bring this ancient version of the Kolkali into the limelight."

"It's a temple art form and is also a martial art form. Its songs, for instance, revolves around the legends surrounding the Payyannur Subramanya Swamy temple. The art form is customarily performed in Vettakorumakan temples in the locality as the deity Oorpazhasi is said to be very fond of watching it. It's a martial art form because it is believed to have been taught to create a rhythmic sense in children who learnt Kathakali in the many kalaris in the locale. Kalaripayattu practitioners have for long played Payyannur Kolkali as a relaxation technique."

"Payyannur Kolkali has similarities to the movements in Thiruvathirakali and Kaikottikali but it is most closely related to Poorakali in its steps and bodily expressions and in its music too."

"I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me,
because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk,
mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a common place thing,
but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue center light pop and everybody goes Awww!"
