AYURVEDA

Pavitra

Ayurveda has a 5000 year old tradition of cultivating health and wellness. Based on the principle that three natural forces reside in the human body: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. When these doshas are in balance, we enjoy health and harmony. Effective therapeutic treatments are employed to release blockages so that Qi – the basic energy of life – can flow freely again.

To offer guests a truly authentic experience, Ayurvedic treatments take place in the resort’s own Ayurvedic temple, designed and built by Indian craftsmen. Originating in Kerala, the ancient Indian philosophy and holistic approach of well-being known as Ayurveda means “the art of living wisely.” At BodyHoliday Saint Lucia, the art of Ayurvedic therapies – including a range of massages and facials using warm oils and time-honoured techniques – are offered to revive the body, calm the mind, bring balance, and are tailored to suit each guest’s individual needs.

Treatments

Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world’s oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India.It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main goal is to promote good health, not fight disease. But treatments may be geared toward specific health problems.We have an extensive range of Ayurvedic treatments for guests in our Ayurvedic Temple “Pavitra”

Cuisine

Ayurveda, an ancient Indian philosophy of living wisely and a sister science to yoga, teaches that food plays an essential part in physical health and well-being. At the BodyHoliday, Ayurvedic cuisine is served as part of our menu of possibilities.
The Ayurvedic approach to cooking–based on variety of healing principles, including the three Doshas or humours of the body, the five elements and six tastes, as well as the optimal time for eating–focusses on the needs of each individual to improve health and digestion and bring balance to body, mind and spirit.

MINDFULNESS

BodyYoga

Yoga for mind. Yoga is an internal practice. While moving through various postures, whether simple or challenging the mind is continuously tested. Discipline, patience, focus and concentration increase through Yoga training. This in turn helps people to overcome fear, anger, varying moods and attachments. Yoga helps to strengthen both body and mind. Yoga for soul. Yoga helps us to look beyond the material world, to experience the self and to feel more at one with nature. Many people find that Yoga helps them to live in total spiritual contentment.

BodyYoga is the culmination of many years gathering expertise and knowledge at the BodyHoliday in order to create a Yoga program to suit a wide range of needs. BodyYoga is about the pursuit of optimal wellness. Our aim is to find the right Yoga style for you and combine with sensible nutrition, therapies, relaxation and meditation.

At the BodyHoliday we combine Yoga’s spiritual aspect with Ayurvedic science to provide you with a unique combination of physical, mental, spiritual and therapeutic benefits. Yoga for body. It lengthens and tones all muscle groups and strengthens the entire core body.
