Ayurveda is a 5000-years ancient Indian system of healing, which is not only famous in India but its healing capabilities are being recognized around the globe. The word Ayurveda translates into ‘knowledge of life’, where ‘Ayur’ means ‘life’ while ‘Veda’ means ‘knowledge’ in Sanskrit. According to the ancient texts, the science of Ayurveda explains how to attain ‘Niraamaya’ – a life that’s free of diseases. In fact, Ayurveda goes beyond just curing diseases, intending to not only treat diseases but also to bring back and restore the unique state of balance or equilibrium of a person. Ayurveda regards body, mind, and spirit as individual elements and has unique methods for working on each of them.

Corporate Stress Management

Modern life is full of hassles, deadlines,

frustrations, and demands. Stress isn’t always bad since in small doses it can help you perform under pressure. But when one is constantly running in emergency mode, the mind and body pay the price. Stress affects the mind, body, and behaviour in many different ways. Chronic stress disrupts your bodily functions and can increase your risk of heart diseases, stroke, infertility and accelerate the ageing process.

From an Ayurveda perspective, there are two main causes of stress overload and related depression.

  • An imbalance in the three doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
  • Lack of awareness of one’s inner self. It results from Kapha imbalance that is the culmination of Vata and then Pitta going out of balance.

Ayurveda treatments based on Panchakarma and Rasayana chikitsa along with Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation can bring about immense changes in a stressed-out person. These therapies will have a long-term preventive benefit for an individual and protect the person from experiencing burnout. Ayurveda methods not only increase the balance in the body they also progressively raise the overall level of inner contentment.

Package Inclusions:

  • Private arrival transfer from Trivandrum Airport.
  • Accommodation in a well-appointed room.
