Empower Your Health: A Guide to Ayurvedic Retreat Benefits

While many of the practices and benefits from Ayurvedic Retreats sound like common sense, it’s not always as easy and achievable as one may think. Based on the theory that our health relies on the overall balance of our body, mind, and spirit combined, Ayurveda encourages a natural and holistic lifestyle to maintain a healthy balance. If you aren't sure if Ayurveda is right for you, or you are entirely new to ancient medical practices, keep reading to discover the benefits of going to an Ayurvedic retreat and some of the options offered by Healing Holidays.  

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian medical system that relies on holistic and natural approaches to physical and mental health. It’s one of the oldest medical systems in the world and is still well-known all over India for being the country's main form of healthcare. It translates into ‘knowledge of life,’ and has a golden rule which states: like attracts like, opposites balance.

Ayurveda believes that there are 3 basic types of energy in everyone and everything. Pitta relates to the body's metabolic system, Kapha, relates to the body structure, and Vata relates to the energy associated with movement. This 5,000-year-old medical system is also based upon 5 factors that are believed to form the basic human body. These 5 principles are Air, Water, Earth, Space, and Fire. With these factors plus a delicate balance between the mind, spirit, and body combined, is designed to help people live a long and happy life. read more...
