Maa Yoga Ashram | Rishikesh, Uttarakhand | Himalayas
Welcome to the beginning of a profound transformation in your life. Welcome to our Ayurveda Retreats! Ayurveda, the ancient Indian Holistic Medicine, is prevention-oriented, free from harmful side-effects and capable of treating disease at its source. It can legitimately claim to be both scientific and truly holistic. It employs 20 systematic approaches to health from the perspective of mind, body, behavior and environment. These therapies do not conflict with either conventional or complementary methods, so they can be successfully employed alongside other systems of healing if desired. The basic Ayurvedic philosophy is that the whole universe consists of five elements: air, fire, water, earth and ether. Ayurvedic Medicine believes that the well-being of humans at any given moment has strong bearing on the quality, quantity, and configural pattern of these elements. An analysis of this pattern can give accurate insight into the metabolism of the person and facilitate faster recovery from ailments. The extended agenda of Ayurveda is to prevent the onset of imbalance altogether.
The director of our Ayurveda Retreat is Yogi Dr. Amrit Raj, a 4th generation Ayurvedic Doctor and certified yoga 500 teacher with a deep commitment to helping people attain a balanced mind, body and spirit so that equilibrium can be established and optimal health and happiness can be achieved. The power of Yogi Dr. Amrit Raj’s approach to health is that it looks beyond the changing physical structure of the human body to the value of intelligence that directs and orchestrates this continuous flow of matter. You will definitely feel this during your Ayurveda Retreat.

This ensures that a nourishing, healing influence is always generated through the mind-body connection. All of the food prepared on site is made following Ayurvedic principles from family recipes using only the best ingredients. Every detail counts, in fact, even the milk served in our delicious Chai and used in cooking is fresh from the family farm in nearby Muzaffarnagar.
Physical Principles: Vata, Pitta & Kapha Doshas On the physical level, Ayurveda understands the body in terms of three basic principles or ‘doshas’ – Vata, Pitta, Kapha – that underlie all bodily processes. Balance of the doshas promotes health and well-being. When imbalances in the doshas go uncorrected,
illnesses results. The dominant dosha in an individual determines that person’s body type, which in turn determines which diseases they are susceptible to. Ayurveda uses systematic methods, including Arogyadham pulse diagnosis, to evaluate the balance of the doshas and prescribe a health program
suited to the individual. Food for Thought Yogi Dr. Amrit Raj includes in the Ayurveda Retreat, a complete and unique science of nutrition, recognising the importance of the individual’s capacity for digesting and assimilating food and providing a valuable understanding of differences in dietary requirements according to age, constitutional type and individual health needs. The influence of the seasons and time of day are
also taken into account in nutrition at the Ashram. The Maa Yoga Ashram approach to healthy eating teaches how to get in touch with the body’s real needs regarding food intake and also how to achieve maximum satisfaction and enjoyment from the food we eat. The focus is not merely on what to eat, but rather on when and how to eat.
The body’s powerful weight and appetite regulating mechanisms are able to function normally. The Maa Yoga Ashram approach to effortless weight-loss can help everyone achieve healthier, more enjoyable eating. For those who are too heavy, weight reduction in our Ayurveda Retreats, is just an added albeit welcome advantage.
Restorative Medicine Yogi Dr. Amrit Raj’s herbal preparations make use of the balancing power of the whole plant or combination of plants in order to promote healing without side-effects.
