Ayurveda & Yoga

"Ayurveda is not merely a system of Healing, but an entire way of life that aims to bring about the perfect balance of the entire personality - body, mind and spirit. Ayurveda is based on theory of tridosha of the three Biological forces - Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Disease arises when there is an imbalance among the three Doshas and aim of the therapy is to bring about the required equilibrium"

The different sides of an Ayurvedic treatment

Quality Ayurvedic treatments are very rare in Europe. Most of them are limited to wellness, massages and shirodhara without medical care. But a stay at a health resort in India could change a lot."

India is the country of origin of the classical Ayurveda. Especially in Kerala in the southwest of the country there are a lot of Ayurveda clinics and health resorts. They offer a wide range of treatments that attract a lot of people from overseas. Real Ayurvedic treatments have little in common with the ones that are practised here. Nevertheless, even in India, there are many different treatments. Every clinic or resort has its own concept. The treatments are even handled differently from region to region.

The Advantages of Ayurveda in Kerala

Ashtangahridayam, the practical, user friendly interpretation of Ayurveda, compiled by the great Vagbata is seldom used anywhere in the world as it is extensively done in Kerala. The Vaidyars of Kerala are proficient in this most contemporary treatise of Ayurveda which many scholars consider an advancement over the earlier samhitas of Charaka and Sushruta, the pioneers of Ayurveda. It is in Kerala that Kashaya Chikitsa (treatment with concoction) has become a standardised protocol involving hundreds of Kashayams that were scientifically classified and organised according to various treatment needs. Keralite Vaidyars where the first to focus on the anti oxidant properties of Abayangam leading to the profusion of kizhis. The largest number of Ayurveda colleges and the largest number of practitioners in comparison to any place in the world has led to a tradition of Ayurveda research in a scientific manner in Kerala.

How does it work

Just as everyone has a unique fingerprint, according to Ayurvedic beliefs, each person has a distinct pattern of energy - a specific combination of physical, mental and emotional characteristics. It is also believed that there are three basic energy types called 'doshas', present in every person.


Energy that controls bodily functions associated with motion, including blood circulation, breathing, blinking and heartbeat. When 'vatha' energy is balanced, there is creativity and vitality.


Energy that controls the body's metabolic system including digestion, absorption, nutrition and temperature.


Energy that controls the body's metabolic system including digestion, absorption, nutrition and temperature.

Energy that controls the growth in the body which maintains the water level in the human body moisturizes the skin and maintains the immune system.

Every human being has Vatha, Pitta and Kapha but usually ‘one dosha’ is dominant in a particular person. Many physical, mental and social aspects of our present day 'lifestyle' can influence the energies of the human body. The disturbance in the energy level can be normalized through different Ayurvedic treatments
