Ayurveda

The science of life

Programme Calendar

Ayurveda is a holistic science. It aims at preventing disease and improving health and wellbeing.

Ayurveda dates back more than 5,000 years ago and is believed to be the most ancient medical system in the world. It is a source of profound knowledge for improving and maintaining good health, curing disease and increasing longevity. By cultivating a balanced way of living in physical and mental harmony with nature, we can attend to the root cause of imbalances.

Ayurveda as a healing science gives much importance to proper nutrition. With an individualised approach to nutrition, we learn to eat what is right for our body type, digestion is facilitated, our constitution balanced and our overall health and well-being enhanced.
