European Ayurvedic retreat packages

The accommodation generally offers different Ayurveda packages from which you can choose. The offered Ayurveda treatments differ not only in their content, but also in their length. For example, an Ayurveda short vacation, in the form of an Ayurveda weekend retreat, gives you the chance to relax and switch off even when you have very little time to spare. Many yoga retreats offer a light version of Ayurveda, offering some special Ayurvedic massages to round-off the program.

Longer Ayurveda retreats of seven nights or more, on the other hand, have a more intensive effect and have a particularly beneficial outcome on your body. Before your Ayurvedic therapists pamper you with head, face and full body massages, they will conduct an initial consultation with you. This consultation serves to determine your Dosha type and to define a concrete therapy plan tailored specifically to you! Through, for example, steam baths and inhalations, as well as the typical forehead oil pouring, the Ayurveda specialists bring your doshas back into balance and strengthen your immune system. To achieve a particularly relaxing effect, you can often add yoga, meditation or breathing exercises to your therapy plan.
