The ancient Indian science of wellness and healing, Ayurveda is strongly rooted in the traditions of Kerala.

Ayurveda is supported by the philosophy of holistic relationship between mind, body and soul; just as yoga. Thus, an initiation to yoga and Ayurveda in Kerala will help your spiritual growth.
This completely naturalistic system of healing is popular in Kerala in the form of Panchkarma treatment. Panchkarma aims at absolute detoxification of the body, preparing it for better living, activeness, overall health and high performance. While strengthening your physical abilities with yogic practices when in Kerala, make sure to purify the body from within with Panchakarma therapy.
A colorful variety of exotic spices is part of Kerala’s many appeals. Famed for the production and export of lovely condiments and zests like cardamom, pepper, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, curry leaves and more; Kerala is a heaven for culinary enthusiasts. Those with a knack for the tastes of India are welcome to compliment their learning of Ayurvedic food values with zests from Kerala’s exotic spice gardens.
Steeped in the serene blue Nilgiri hills, Kerala’s spice gardens are verdant and filled with peacefulness. Getaways to spice-foraging trips along these hilly trails of Kerala could be dreamy and very refreshing for the disciplinarians of yoga teacher training in India.
Kerala’s coastline is breezy and beautiful with hundreds of different sights and sounds.
