KaivalyaDhama

Yoga and Ayurveda

Based on the principles of the five elements of nature, Ayurveda can help remove toxic effects of present-day life style issues, unhealthy food, harmful medicines, and environmental changes. This ancient science works on bodily aspects such as Dosha (basic body energy), Dhatu (body tissue), and Mala (excretion).

Our Integrated Approach

At Kaivalyadhama, Yoga with Ayurveda and Panchakarma offers you an integrated approach to renew and destress yourself with herbal treatments for ailments, recovery, and restoration. We believe that combining this age-old wisdom of Ayurveda with yoga promotes and maintains sustained physical and emotional health in routine life.

The Ayurveda and Panchakarma course at Kaivalyadhama, begins after a personal medical consultation by an Ayurvedic doctor, depending on the condition of the patient’s body. This is an in-depth intervention that helps our doctors gauge the level and depth of physical and emotional disturbance for planning exclusive treatments.

Customised programs are thoughtfully designed for healing, detoxification, and rejuvenation. This involves beginning with internal medicinal lubrication to detach the body from toxins by any one or a combination of procedures. Therapies include Abhyanga, Potali, Swedan, Shirodhara, Padyabahyanga, Nasya Basti, Karnapuran, Netrabasti, Lepa, Facial, Hrudbasti, Katibasti, Manyabasti, Sandhibandha, and so on.

The combined specialised schedule incorporates your yoga practice, intake of herbal decoction teas, a select saatvik diet with supplements, massages and different therapies with medicated oil & medicated ghee. While the guests have a duration choice of a week or more for this program, a longer stay ensures enhanced benefits of Panchakarma.

What is Panchakarma?

Based on ancient Ayurvedic principles, Panchakarma involves five procedures:

  1. Vaman / Emetics: Therapeutic vomiting, useful in cases of allergies, asthma, sinusitis, purifies respiratory tract.
  2. Virechan / Purgation: Useful in heart, blood vessels and liver troubles.
  3. Basti / Enema: Two types of enemas are possible. Introduction of decoction or oil in the rectal passage. Useful in disorders of locomotion, in constipation and neurological problems.
  4. Nasya / Nasal Administration: Oil or medicated milk or some herbal powder is introduced in the nostrils to expel toxins from forehead and head. It also rejuvenates the sense organs.
  5. Raktamoksana / Bloodletting: Involves therapeutic bloodsucking by leeches.

Cleansing procedures are advised and tailor-made by our doctors
depending on ones’ health, age, and medical conditions.

Three steps of Panchakarma practice

Pruvakarma/ Pre Treatment

a) Oleation with a medicated oil massage, that is complemented with a special diet. Our body is like a machine that must be serviced and cleansed for restoring the health of the body.

b) Fomentation is carried out in different ways to open bodily channels and bring the toxins towards the nearest outlets of the body.

Pradhamkarma/ Main Treatment

Our Ayurveda experts decide the main karma according to health conditions and bodily constitution of the person undergoing treatment. Karmas depend on the patient's condition and hereditary history.





Paschatkarma/ Post Treatment

a) After the main purification process, the bodily functions must be reset. Gradually there is a natural shift form special diet to a suitable normal diet.

b) This includes rejuvenating therapies by following some simple home remedies.
