According to the cosmology of Ayurveda, we are all composed of different quantities of the five great elements (Panchamahabhutas).
Indeed each individual being and object in the universe is a unique combination of these 5 elements.
The concept of health in Ayurveda is all about how to keep our unique makeshift of elements in balance with the constant changes that happen within and outside us (see emotional or chemical changes versus weather changes or societal factors).
Unfortunately most of us don’t even know our exact composition, or constitution (Vata, Pita, Kapha) as we like to call it in Ayurveda. This is why Ayurvedic practitioners are trained to identify and recognize the clues in our bodies.
Thanks to ancient techniques such as pulse diagnosis and skilled observation, a well trained practitioner is capable of deciphering a person’s original constitution or Dosha.
Dosha in Sanskrit means ¨that which has the tendency to go out of balance¨ as a result of bad habits and/or old neglected traumas.
During this Re-Treat we aim at pin pointing your natural Dosha and not only tailor therapies to re-instate harmony in your being, but also leave you with instructions on how to manage and maintain your good health in balance once back in your daily life. Questionnaires, consultations and conversations will reveal your natural gifts and weaknesses and we will leave you with a detailed map on how best to manage yourself through diet, exercise, mind enhancing techniques and lifestyle choices.
