Ayurveda is India’s traditional, natural system of medicine that has been practiced for more than 5,000 years.
Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that literally translated means "science of life" or "practices of longevity."
Ayurveda emphasizes prevention of disease, rejuvenation of our body systems, and extension of life span.
Ayurveda provides an integrated approach to preventing and treating illness through lifestyle interventions and natural therapies.
In Ayurveda, all bodily processes are believed to be governed by a balance of three elements called the doshas.
Vata (resembling the classical element air), Pitta (fire), and Kapha (water).
Each is present in every individual, but the extent varies, creating hundreds of differing constitutions.
The most comprehensive Ayurvedic facilities in the are to be found at Kalari Kovilakom Palace, and Somatheeram, two destinations for full Ayurvedic treatments. These cover anti-stress, weight loss, beauty and anti-ageing, complete with authentic kitchens, diet and other therapies, accompanied with Yoga and meditation..
The world's first Ayurvedic resort and one of the very few by the beach. Winner of many national and international awards for excellence in Ayurvedic treatments, rightfully enough call themselves: The Ayurveda People.
"Live your world here" . This is what they tell you when you cross the entrance door at Kalari Kovilakom and this is exactly what you should do.
