Each luxurious room is vibrant, airy and filled with natural light and good energy. Tastefully furnished with earthy décor that has been handpicked to reflect the elements of nature, the accommodation offers you the beauty of traditional design combined with all the contemporary comforts of a luxury property.

Program

If your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the universal energy, you will have good health. When something disrupts this balance, such as injury, emotions, age, seasonal change or even lifestyle, you will become unwell and full of dis-ease. The five elements combine in the human body to make three life forces “doshas”. You all have a unique combination of the doshas but one dosha is usually more prominent and this throws off your balance. Ayurveda uses the knowledge of your doshas to bring harmony and wellness back to you, by restoring your dosha balance during treatments, therapies and lifestyle changes.

  • Vata dosha (space and air)
  • Pitta dosha (fire and water)
  • Kapha dosha (water and earth)

Yoga and Ayurveda are two segments from the same fruit of ancient knowledge, practiced side by side, in perfect alignment for centuries. The skilled teachers with years of experience in Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yin, and Iyengar yoga will guide your daily yoga classes.

Ayurveda

“Ayus” means life and “Veda” for knowledge in Sanskrit - is the science of life. Ayurveda is one of the oldest medical systems in the world. During your consultancy, your “Dosha” will be determined by the Ayurvedic Doctor from Vata, Pitta and Kapha. You will be advised on the best nutrition, therapies, treatments and lifestyle changes according to your dosha, in order to follow a personalised wellbeing path during your stay here and beyond.

Rejuvenate

Rejuvenate yourself with Ayurvedic massages at a time of your choosing, these will be holistic full body massages with oils used, based on your dosha and physical need.

Recentre

Recentre with the Shirodhara treatment - shiro meaning head and dhara meaning flow. An Ayurveda therapy that involves continuously pouring warm, herbal oil over the forehead; also known as the Ajna Chakra. An area of highly concentrated nerves and containing the circulation of your vital life force, or prana. The flow of oil onto the forehead creates a vibration whilst the oil saturates the forehead and scalp, penetrating deep into the nervous system. The gentle pressure and soothing warmth of the oil will allow the body, mind and nervous system to experience a deep state of rest, only comparable with deep meditation. Balancing the mind, stabilizing emotions and healing the body

Relax

Relax during your Indian head massage treatment. Massage techniques based solely on therapeutic touch over the scalp, head, face and shoulders to induce deep relaxation. Aiming to restore balance by working with the three higher chakras. Vishuddha, your throat chakra, Ajna, also known as your third eye and Sahasrara, your crown chakra. Focusing on areas of the body that hold the most stress, your tension will melt away leaving a sense of total calm. Leaving you with a sense of light being.

Program

Usually, the day will start with a dynamic yoga class at 8:00 a.m. in one of the spacious and airy rooftop yoga shalas. Followed by fresh fruit juices and a healthy wellness buffet breakfast in the beachfront restaurant.

Nalanda Retreat is located next to the shores of the Arabian Sea, which is a safe place to swim and relax in peace, with private beach access and loungers via the restaurant. You can use your free time to soak up the sun, go on leisurely walks, enjoy incredible sunsets on the beach, and explore the beautiful state of Goa and its local attractions.

Afternoon yoga at 4:00 p.m. is a slower, more gentle class easing you into the evening.
