Healing Ayurveda and Yoga Retreat in Kerala

  • Yoga & Ayurveda Reisen
  • Ayurveda Retreats

Overview

In the small charming Indian village of Azhiyur, in the north of Kerala, directly at the  Arabian Sea, lies our very special Ayurvedic center “Greens Ayurveda”.

Here, it is all about Ayurveda and your health. Ayurveda is a science that, on the basis of the principles of nature, helps us to maintain or restore our health, bringing body, mind and soul  into harmony with nature. The goal is to cure diseases and protect health.

Here, in the Indian Ayurveda center, this succeeds with professional Ayurvedic treatments, healthy vegetarian meals, yoga and meditation and a lot of peace and quietness.

In addition to the daily two Ayurvedic treatments, which are determined after a personal consultation with the Ayurvedic doctor, there are three healthy Ayurvedic meals daily, yoga and mediation in the morning, as well as regular workshops and lessons on the topic of Ayurveda and yoga. So you don’t just live Ayurveda and yoga here in the center, but you can take the Ayurvedic lifestyle home into your normal everyday life.

In addition, we will offer a colorful and diverse active and cultural program. Excursions to the beach are organized, we visit Indian temples, take a boat trip and watch traditional dance and martial arts performances for the evening program. Of course, the Retreat also offers time for yourself.

A highlight is certainly the day trip to Wayanad National Park with the chance to spot wild elephants, as well as a visit to the tea and coffee plantations.

If you want to explore a little bit more of India apart from the Ayurveda Center, this 7 Days Add on Tour can be interesting for you.

Further Information

Treatments

At the beginning there will be an extensive consultation with an Ayurvedic doctor and our chief physician. The friendly team, consisting of 7 Ayurvedic doctors, will guide you through the treatment plan and the long-experienced and certified therapists will carry out the treatments. If you have any questions or problems, the doctor is always on hand.

Depending on your health, you are recommended either an entire Panchakarma treatment for detoxification or a healing Shamana therapy to treat the diseases and symptoms.

There is also the possibility to receive regenerative treatments or cosmetic treatments.

The Ayurveda Center

Greens Ayurveda is a small manageable spa clinic. The chief physician Dr. C. P. Asghar and his team of doctors and therapists provide comprehensive care. The clinic is located in a small village  surrounded by palm trees and within walking distance to the beach.

You will be accomodated in clean and well-equipped air-conditioned rooms. The complex has a recreation area, a dining room, a hospital with several rooms, airy classrooms, a roof terrace, a herbal garden, a library, and a guest kitchen. The center is only 400 meters from the beach and is located in a small Indian village, surrounded by green palm forests.

The Retreat and Retreat Leader

The Retreat is organised by Sarah Appelt. She herself has been living in India for several years and is a trained yoga teacher and experienced guide. She knows Kerala very well and will help you to understand and get to know the South Indian culture.

She will also lead the morning yoga classes and meditation, will offer yoga workshops and accompany you on the excursions.

At the same time, she can be available during the Ayurveda Retreat in case of translation and mediation problems.

The journey begins and ends at the international airport of Kozikode .

Climate

From November to March it is pleasantly warm and you only need light clothing. On most beaches of Kerala you can swim in normal swimwear. On some remote beaches it is advisable to put on a T-shirt. Women in particular often attract unwelcome glances from local and Indian tourists, as it is not common for women in India to show too much skin. From March, temperatures will rise and it will be humid, so you probably sweat a lot and should pay attention to drink enough. From June to the end of September is the rainy season and many seasonal accommodations and restaurants are closed. It rains quite heavily during this time.

What you should take along:

  • light knee- and shoulder-covering clothing (thighs and tunic, shirt and wide trousers, knee-covering dresses (also shorts and tops possible)
  • Clothing for Yoga
  • old clothes (underwear, shirts, trousers) for treatments with oil and pastes
  • Scarf or shawl
  • Sandals or flip-flops
  • Sunglasses, Sunscreen, Head
  • own toiletries, but not too much, as many Ayurvedic products are available here
  • small bag / backpack for excursions
  • Passport (copy), credit or bank card, cash in your currency (approx. € 50)
  • Camera, phone, charger (no adapter required)
  • Notebook and writing material
