Ayurveda, Dru Yoga and Meditation
with Winant, Vera and Lenny
Vera Gubbels, Winant Spijkerman and Lenny Janssen
Ayurveda is a 5000 year old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic Culture of India. Yoga and Ayurveda come from the same source of knowledge.
In this retreat we offer you the fundamentals of traditional ayurveda. We learn about the doshas, gain insights into the body-type and how to apply it all for a healthier and joyful way of life.
The yoga, meditation and breathing classes are based on the doshas. The variety of traditional ayurvedic treatments / massages, adventures in nature and healthy vegetarian food will balance and energize your body, mind and soul.
This retreat will take place at Watamu Treehouse in Kenya.
