What Will I Experience?

Daily Ayurvedic Massage + Treatments

Daily Ayurvedic Massage + Treatments

The meaning of ‘Ayur’ is life, and ‘Veda’ means knowledge, so Ayurveda means ‘knowledge of the science of life’.

You will experience a full program of authentic Ayurvedic therapies, which work to create balance between body, mind and soul. A team of Ayurvedic doctors will analyse your health and decide on the best rejuvenation programme for the week. It could be Abhyangam massages (where two masseurs simultaneously and rhythmically massage you with herbal oils) or other specific treatments like the dhaara to bring out the perfect well-being and restore balance in you.

Our workshops on Ayurveda and the tour of Kairali’s Ayurvedic Medicine Factory will provide you with a foundation in knowledge about Ayurveda’s application in modern day life.

Yoga + Meditation

Yoga + Meditation

Yoga is the twin sister of Ayurveda. In the most literal sense, the word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word yuj, which means “to join” or “unite”. It is the unity of the body, mind and soul, and the connection between the individual self and consciousness.

Kairali village is the perfect place for anyone wanting to dig deeper into the realm of yoga and its history as well as its working principles and application to modern day life. The retreat will cover beginner to advanced workshops integrating yoga philosophy, vedanta, sanskrit, tantra and meditation. When we learn to integrate these principles into our life with awareness we can take a united approach to build a lifestyle of true health and longevity.

Yogic Philosophy + Vedanta Workshops

Yogic Philosophy + Vedanta Workshops

The 5,000 year old + philosophy and wisdom of yoga is vast. Through workshops we will help you decipher the ancient philosophies and apply them to your everyday life.

Expand your knowledge on vedanta, yogic philosophy, kundalini, meditation, sanskrit and tantra.

Each workshop will be an open discussion and exploration of concepts with practical guidelines for application to your life back home so you can begin to integrate yoga more fully into your lifestyle.

Have an interest in learning more about Sanskrit, kundalini and the chakras.

Want to travel to India but aren’t interested in the “touristy” stuff

Looking for a bit of a detox – all meals at Kairali are chef-prepared multi-courses, vegetarian nourishing goodness!

Are happy to take time out, lounge in a hammock under a coconut tree, swim in the pool, or read a book and sip masala chai on your veranda.

Are keen to connect with a community.

Want to learn more about Ayurveda, visit an Ayurvedic factory and experience a treatment and steam bath every day!

Have an open mind, willingness to learn and a great sense of humour and are ready for a week of learning, relaxation, connection and fun.

But this journey may not be the right experience for you if you:

Aren’t reallly that “into” Yoga or Ayurveda

Want to be where all the tourists are and do what the tourists usually do

Want to go shopping (but you could do this before or after your retreat)

Want to see more than one location in India (but you could extend and do this before or after your retreat)

Won’t enjoy a vegetarian only diet for 7 days.

Don’t like music, yoga, laughter, connecting with people or having fun!
