MAYI AyurYoga envisions connecting the mind, body and breath through natural healing practices such as diet, herbs, yoga asanas, bodyworks and spa therapies, lifestyle, breathing and meditation.
Ayurveda and Yoga under one roof
At MAYI AyurYoga, we combine the ancient practices of Ayurveda and Yoga and offer tailor made solutions based on your desires to heal, cleanse, relax and revitalise. Yoga and Ayurveda have gained in popularity over the last few years but few are aware that these are in fact sister practices, and when both are combined, the improvements in health and well-being are multiplied many times over.
You can rest assured that our therapists are well trained as our Ayurveda Massage Therapist Course is approved by the Ministry of Education .With certified therapists in both Ayurveda and Yoga, we tailor make personalised packages for each individual; be it a single massage session, a 10 day detox plan or a month long arthritis treatment. Treatment sessions at MAYI AyurYoga are strongly rooted in ancient traditions, while keeping in mind contemporary preferences and comforts.
The authenticity and our commitment to these ancient health systems are evident in the adherence to the traditional system of yoga and our inclusion of practices such as the Shatkarmas (yogic detox techniques) and Pranayama (breathing techniques) which are rarely, if ever, taught in most studios; and the use of 100% pure and authentic Ayurvedic recipes comprising age-old powders, oils, vessels, wooden beds and treatment rituals.
Whether you come for a healing traditional massage or a carefully choreographed Yoga session, your body and mind undergo a holistic metamorphosis whilst surrounded by pristine greenery – our headquarters are located directly opposite a Natural Heritage Site and 545 hectares of lush rainforest, nature trails, waterfalls and botanical gardens.
According to Ayurveda, the universe is made of five primordial elements, namely Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Ether. These elements themselves are inanimate, but in combination, give rise to three main biological forces or principles in the human body, called doshas, and, as every human being has a different balance of elements, one dosha is typically predominant in our constitution and ascertains our personality.
The Tridosha Theory
When the five elements – space, air, fire, water and earth combine to form the human body, they do so by creating three vital energies, or doshas. These doshas known as Vata, Pitta and Kapha are the forces that govern all psycho-physiological functions in the body and mind respectively. They construct the body and serve to maintain it in a dynamic state of health. However, when these vital forces are aggravated, due to improper gross or subtle factors, the body-mind connection begins to suffer and the disease process begins.
AyurYoga Wellness Consultation
The consultation explores your physical, mental and emotional health to help you understand your unique energetic constitution that determines your body type and your current imbalances. Your consultant then prepares a sequence of treatments and a programme of diet and exercise specifically for you that will help bring more balance, energy and peace to your entire being.
She will also provide you with tips and take-home information on your lifestyle and daily routine that will keep your continuing commitment to your well-being on track and bring you back to a vibrant state of health and radiance.
