Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of medicine, dating back over 5,000 years to ancient India. It is the science of living in harmony with nature. In Sanskrit, 'ayur' means life and 'veda' means knowledge. A truly holistic approach to achieving and maintaining that balance, it is time for you to rest, relax, and rejuvenate yourself with daily yoga, meditation and pranayama, and healthy vegetarian meals.
During your stay, you will be accommodated in a private room.
Richard founded the Ayurveda Health Retreat in 2001 and is a dedicated Yoga teacher and Ayurvedic educator. Since opening its doors, he has helped thousands of people seeking healthy living with knowledge from the Ayurveda. He began his Yoga and Ayurveda studies at age 17 and traveled to India at 21 with his spiritual teacher Swami Prabhupada. He studied Ayurveda with Dr. Vasant Lad at the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico, and has traveled to India over 30 times. In 1994 he graduated Clayton College with a degree, Doctor of Naturopathy.
The Ayurveda Health Retreat is located in the small historic town of Alachua, in North Central Florida, United States.
During this retreat, you will be served with daily vegetarian meals.
During your free time at the retreat, you may want to take advantage of the abundant out-door activities available within a 15 or 20-minute drive. Nothing encourages relaxation and recovery like quality time spent reconnecting with Mother Earth.
There are many clear springs, rivers, and lakes for swimming and canoeing or kayaking, as well as a wide range of walking and hiking trails for any level of fitness. Take a slow amble on a leafy path through O'Leno State Park, climb the stairs down into the Devil's Milhopper sinkhole, tube down the Ichetucknee River, or stroll through the San Felasco Hammock. You can also select from the following activities and services that Ayurveda Health Retreats offer:
The Ayurvedic facial nourishes and exfoliates the skin with our completely natural, chemical and preservative-free products from Better Botanicals. The relaxing facial massage triggers a balanced lymphatic flow and restores life, vigor and function to the skin.
This style of massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscles and fascia. It focuses on releasing trigger points located deep within the muscle tissue.
This gentle massage reverses the effects of negative stress by bringing about the relaxation response. It reduces blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate, and the level of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol in the body.
Thai massage is both energizing and relaxing. The therapist uses hands, feet and knees to move you into a series of yoga-like poses. Thai massage improves circulation and increases flexibility and range of motion.
Acupressure massage and herbal oils are used to unblock the energy pathways in the body called Marmas. This is a very relaxing and rejuvenating treatment.
Kati Basti is an effective treatment for relieving lower back pain, stiffness and other back concerns related to spinal disc problems. Ayurvedic herbal oils are applied to the back and the local Marma points are energized.
During this treatment, organic ghee is gently poured into the eyes and allowed to soak in. This soothing and nourishing procedure is good for rejuvenating dry eyes, relieving tension in the eye muscles, enhancing the natural luster of the eyes and improving clarity of vision.
During this therapy, several drops of medicated oil are administered into each nostril. This opens and cleanses your nasal and sinus passages, enhancing the flow of oxygen to the brain. It may relieve allergy and sinus conditions and improve your memory.
