Welcome to the Ayurveda Health Retreat!
Established in 2001 by Richard A. Masla with a mission to share the wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga in the spirit of health, love, transformation, and service. Through all of our offerings, we are dedicated to supporting your journey into total wellness, so that you may feel truly inspired in living your most fulfilling life, every moment of every day.
Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing rooted in the ancient culture of India. More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge), guiding you not only towards vibrant physical and mental health, but also a deeper connection to your spiritual nature.
It offers a body of wisdom designed to help you stay vital while realizing your full human potential.
Providing guidelines on ideal daily and seasonal routines, diet, behavior and the proper use of your senses, Ayurveda reminds you that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between your body, mind, spirit, and environment.
Ayurveda is a science that helps you understand the nature of this world and how the elements work together to create harmony or dissonance, health or dis-ease.
It guides you towards understanding yourself, your own material makeup, so that you can interact with the world in right relation.
It supports you in navigating life consciously, making choices that support your health and balance so that you can begin to expand your perspective and seek the deeper, big-picture questions in life—What is my purpose? Who am I? Why am I here?
Ayurveda and Yoga are considered to be sister sciences as they are meant to be practiced together. Yoga is the study of spirit, or the Soul. It is a science meant to help you understand the nature of your mind and cleanse your heart so that you may awaken to the truth of who you really are. Ayurveda is the study of matter, guiding you towards understanding the nature of this world and the elements that it is made of.
Practiced together, Yoga and Ayurveda guide you toward a way of living in this world that is made of matter while staying connected to your Soul.
The ancient healing practice of Panchakarma is a unique experience that leaves the body and mind relaxed and rejuvenated. Many illnesses result from the build-up of toxins that can impair the body’s natural defenses. Panchakarma promotes healing and restoration by eliminating these toxins from the body. However, unlike other detoxification programs, Panchakarma is a gentle individualized process that achieves deep cleansing without discomfort, allowing the rejuvenating energies of the body to flow freely.
During the course of our lives, we may occasionally feel out of balance, stressed and out of touch with our inner knowing. At such times a Panchakarma Retreat can work wonders, improving the overall condition of your body, mind and soul.
To gain maximum benefit from your Panchakarma experience, we recommend a stay of 5 -10 days. For more serious or chronic conditions, a stay of 14-21 days can be of huge benefit. However, if a lengthy stay isn't possible, even three days of Panchakarma can have life-changing results.
