Ayurveda at Villa De Zoysa Yoga Retreat
Ayurveda is the science of life. It is an ancient Indian healing system that aims to counteract imbalances of the 3 essential forces, vata, pita and kapha. These 3 forces constitute the thidosha, which regulates the normal functioning of the human body.
We offer Ayurveda treatments and to achieve the best results we request you complete a formulated, comprehensive questionnaire in order to assess the needs of the individual Since much is written and talked about this therapy, high expectations have been placed, leading to misconception. Our task is to evaluate thru our questionnaire and recommend as to what can and cannot be achieved during a given period of time. Please call for this questionnaire.

- Consultation with Ayurvedic doctor
