Ayurveda Yoga Retreats with Panchakarma in partnership with Ahimsa Garden retreats Kerala S.India
We have now had two Ayurvedic yoga retreat at Ahimsa Gardens Kerala, as you can see from some of the feedback below it was a wonderful experience with all the students wanting to return
I highly recommend the retreats offered by the Yorkshire Centre for Wellbeing. The Ahisma Garden Retreat in Kerala has been amazing! What a little gem! I have tried various treatments and therapies around the world over the years – in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc. but Ayurvedic treatment is in a league of its own.
It is possible to visit an Ayurvedic centre after chemotherapy and radiation to restore the immune systems; it is unique and highly effective. Dr Daisy Kuchinad, the founder of Ahimsa, knows only too well as her own beloved son had Cancer aged only 20. A physician based in the US, she researched the planet to find someone to help her son and found Dr Nair. He is a top Ayurvedic doctor based in Kerala. There is something very special about this man; his intuition is incredible – he truly has a sixth sense. He treats patients with panchakarma, Ayurveda’s premier mind-body healing treatment; a unique programme of deep cleansing, purification rejuvenation to detoxify the mind and body, strengthen the immune system and restore balance.
I genuinely feel different after a week of treatments – plus the added bonus of looking younger with less cellulite! Daisy has set up a lovely, homely villa with beautiful tropical gardens in which she is conserving rare Ayurvedic plants and the most incredible yoga studios with wooden floors restored from ancient temples, set at tree level amidst the Indian jungle.

In accordance with Panchakarma, Daisy’s wonderful staff serve delicious, organic, mainly home-grown, Ayurvedic, vegetarian food to cleanse the body for the duration of your stay. There is time to relax and recharge and time to experience the amazing Indian culture with a boat trip on the stunning backwaters, live traditional Indian music and dance, a visit to a Hindu temple and an Indian yoga and Kalaripait martial arts’ show.
The Keralan Backwaters have been a trip of a lifetime! It is life changing! I truly feel that Ayurveda is a lifestyle to be as healthy as possible in a non-aggressive way, one that I intend to continue to follow. I now feel that annual Ayurvedic treatments are key to today’s busy life in the West. I think I would have burned out and become seriously ill if I had not taken the time to heal myself and it is an ongoing, lifelong healing process. The combination of East meeting West with a top conventional doctor and top Ayurvedic doctor means you are in the safest of hands with the best advice from both schools of thought. Ahimsa is not only an Ayurvedic retreat but also a yoga retreat, with our own highly experienced, international teacher – Anne-Marie Burford leading the yoga
At meal times, Dr Kuchinad leads inspiring discussions, putting the world to rights, including chats about Ayurveda, modern medicine, philosophy, yoga and pranayama, to name a few.
I have learned a lot; I feel enlightened, inspired and extremely positive! All this for a very reasonable price. I am so grateful and I shall be back!
