Relaxing your mind is the first step to holistic treatments, which is why yoga and meditation are very important in Ayurveda. If you are looking to de-stress as a major part of your treatment process, take part in the yoga and meditation sessions offered by your Ayurveda retreat in Sri Lanka. Keep in mind that you are not required to have pre-knowledge of how to practise these methods, instead, your instructor will show you the techniques. Best of all, you will not learn breathing or yoga methods in stuffy old rooms; you will most likely be sitting on a beach, on a mountain top or surrounded by a tropical garden.


Enjoy the Healthy Menus

At your Ayurveda retreat in Sri Lanka, all junk food can be given a miss, instead, you will be treating your body and taste-buds to some of the best natural food the tropical island has to offer. Most of the retreats there offer, organically grown fruits and vegetables, as well as, steamed fish, roti made from whole grain, red rice and locally grown greens.
