I don't even know where to start - loved the people, the place, the food - everything! Every year I try to do something for myself for my birthday and for a few years I had been wanting to do a yoga retreat. In my extensive searching I happened to come across Ayurveda and after reading reviews on Trip Advisor...

If you're interested in a spiritual journey in a communal environment, this is the place for you. Casual bedrooms, shared bathrooms and community meals are commonplace. It has a bed & breakfast feel to it which allows the opportunity to meet new people and partake in some thoughtful discussions. I would have preferred a more remote location as you can...

First you will have a terrible time trying to get an appointment... They cancelled my appointment twice within an hour of my appointment, after I already took time off of work. Then when you can finally get to your appointment don't be shocked when the place is nothing special, rooms smelt, food was horrible, and yoga was not even good...

This place has without a question strong fundamentals of Ayurveda knowledge. It is very modest, small and you are the center of all team members that work there. I came there with a strong pain in my left side, where my digest system is, and after few days on the Ayurveda diet and some herbs, the pain was gone. And...

I found the Retreat to be a place of calming, caring atmosphere. You can truly unwind and be nurtured and let the focus be on you! I had the best massage, oil treatments, and steam bath of my life!! My massage therapist worked her magic with skillful and heavenly massage, creating a blissful and calming state. I would recommend this...

I am delighted that the Ayurveda Health Retreat is only 1.5 hours from my home. I enjoy the ambiance, the fellowship and the peace of this home like setting. The food is wonderful as well.

I have to be honest, I've been on the fence about the AHR for quite some time, but I finally made the decision to go during the winter break, and let me tell you, it was the best choice I could have made. Richard was so helpful, and easy to talk to, and really guided my stay toward a relaxing,...

If you are looking for a non traditional healing centre, I recommend looking to Ayurveda. This deep healing method treats you at all levels, physical, emotional and with healing massage and healthy nutritional organic food. The centre is small so you get personal attention which is wonderful .

The time I spent at the retreat center was amazingly restorative. The treatments are wonderful, the staff are loving and pampering and the food is delicious. I came home very mellow and able to cope with the stress in my life. I've taken some of the things I’ve learned (and delicious recipes) into my daily routine - they are very...

From these humble beginnings, it now encompasses three buildings: a beautiful yoga studio, a retreat center and a yoga ashram. Annually we serve hundreds of guests who visit us from all over the world. We are a group of dedicated health professionals who have created an authentic Ayurvedic retreat offering traditional Kerala Ayurvedic therapies. We have 3 Ayurvedic Practitioners, a psychologist, massage therapists, Reiki healers, and yoga & meditation teachers. Richard Masla, our Ayurvedic Practitioner, studied traditional Ayurveda under Dr. Vasant Lad, Dr. Pankaj Naram and Dr. Syama. Richard has mastered the ancient art of Kerala Ayurvedic Panchakarma and has trained all the massage therapists. We're here to accommodate you, whether you need a weekend refresher or a full 21-day retreat. We look forward to being of service! ... more   less
