Rooted in Ayurveda, Yoga and Vedanta, Ananda in the Himalayas offers the ultimate escape from stress into the realm of peace and tranquility
We all strive for serenity in our daily lives – that elusive state of calm that seems to elude most of us. People with a tranquil bent of mind are better equipped to enjoy life – even a week away from stress could make you ready to combat life’s challenges, be it mental or physical. Ananda in the Himalayas teaches you how to invest into balancing yourself from within by following a simple, Ayurveda-inspired lifestyle. The resort’s immersive wellness programmes are formulated especially for those who procrastinate on self-care.
Said Oprah Winfrey, “Going to Ananda is more like a pilgrimage than a visit.” An apt description for this soulful retreat, located on a 100-acre Maharaja’s Palace Estate, surrounded by stately sal forests and overlooking the spiritual town of Rishikesh and the Ganges river valley.
One of the best luxury wellness retreats in the world, Ananda integrates traditional Ayurveda, Yoga and Vedanta with
international wellness experiences, fitness and healthy organic cuisine to restore balance and harmonise energy.
Ananda’s signature all-inclusive packages are programmes which are tailor-made for individual health goals. Ananda’s
Wellness programmes follow a holistic approach towards achieving the best results in a safe, nurturing atmosphere,
expertly guided by its team of expert Ayurvedic doctors, skilled therapists, nutritionists, Yogis and spa cuisine chefs. Dedicated years of research on the part of Ayurvedic, Yogic and International Wellness experts have enabled a unique integrated focus on the core physical and mental aspects which have the most impact. The results are award-winning programmes which work to create a sustainable journey towards a healthier, enriched lifestyle.
Guests can choose a programme for 7, 14, or 21 days, where they will be immersed in the process of balancing their circadian rhythms and improving on the health of mind, body and spirit. Ananda offers a slew of options to choose from, once guests have decided what they would like to focus on – whether it is detoxing and de-stressing or rejuvenating using traditional therapies, or improving fitness levels by challenging themselves.
If you’re looking to disconnect from the rigours of urban life and wish to pamper yourself with a traditional therapy or international treatment, Ananda is your go-to destination. Ensconced within a cocoon of dense sal trees, blue skies and panoramic views of the Ganges and the valley around would reduce stress levels immediately. The combination
of traditional massages, such as Abhayanga and Shirodhara, Aromatherapy, facials, head massages, eye rejuvenation, etc, are guaranteed to release tension from your mind and body, preparing you for deeper Yogic kriyas and practices.
The nourishment that one receives over time is holistic. The Stress Management Programmes focus on a healthy lifestyle, which aims at minimising stress, creating positive changes and promoting synergy in your life. The team at Ananda believes in de-stressing you from the outside in. The massages and therapies physically release tension knots in the body. Thereafter, group Yoga and fitness sessions help stretch your muscles to ease out the effects of
daily tensions. Once the body is relaxed you can get into Meditation, where you will be schooled into techniques that can be carried back and practised at home. Finally, Vedanta sessions will help you gain a wiser perspective on life. The basic premise behind these lessons is that you can apply what you have learnt to solve stressful situations at work
and in your daily life.
Ananda’s Wellness programmes are aimed to make you feel more centred and in control. Not only will you be more insightful regarding your body’s needs, nutrition and your mind, but you will be more energised and ready to take on any work issues. It’s all made convenient for you – with direct flights now available from eight cities in India, getting to the airport is the only effort you’ll have to make.
