Yoga and Ayurveda are two ancient healing practices that originated in India. Together, they offer a holistic approach to health and wellbeing that has been embraced by travelers and locals alike in the beautiful state of Goa.

Yoga is an ancient system of physical, mental, and spiritual practices developed more than 4,000 years ago with the intention of bringing harmony between body, mind, and spirit. It combines postures (asanas) with breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation to promote relaxation and good health. Over the centuries, yoga has developed into different styles such as Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Yin Yoga, Kirtan Kriya Meditation etc.

Ayurveda is an ancient healing science from India that dates back more than 5,000 years ago. It offers a comprehensive understanding of life with practical guidelines on how to stay healthy physically and mentally in order to achieve ultimate well-being. Based on the concepts of balance (‘Samyagdristi’) between body and mind as well as between man and nature (‘Prakriti’), it helps individuals discover their unique constitution (or ‘dosha’). It provides personalized advice for physical cleansing (‘panchakarma’), natural remedies such as herbs or oils for healing diseases as well as lifestyle recommendations like nutrition plans or yoga exercises according to individual needs.
