Join us for a weekend of deep healing, transformation, bliss, and pampering with Women’s Health—an authentic Ayurveda-based program that will teach you simple, timeless, and sustainable daily wellness practices for greater health and happiness during the transitional phases of life.

Ayurveda’s healing wisdom emphasizes the natural wellness of the inner and outer body. It has many important and useful treatments and practices that can help women find their body’s rhythm, support prenatal and postnatal reproductive health, and manage changes in the body from puberty to menopause.

“We learn all kinds of things in mainstream education, but we do not learn how to take care of our bodies.” –Kim Rossi

In this program, you’ll explore

  • The physiological, emotional, and spiritual dynamics of womanhood
  • Detoxification to improve skin conditions, regulate bowels, aid digestion
  • Stress, female hormones, and their role in woman’s positive health
  • How to achieve hormonal balance and improve menstrual health
  • Breast care
  • Menopause management
  • Skincare
  • The role of diet on mental and physical health
  • Holistic self-care practices.

The practices of Ayurveda focus on balancing body, mind, and spirit. They include disciplines such as massage, meditation, yoga, diet, herbal medicine, nourishing oils, and unique healing treatments that integrate science and nature perfectly. It’s principles are founded on keeping the mind and body in tune with nature—making it the perfect solution for managing weight, the aging process, stress, and more.

Our expert faculty have crafted an educational, fun, and relaxing interactive retreat experience to de-stress, rebalance, and reclaim your vibrancy. Once you are in sync with nature the Ayurvedic way, well-being falls into place, naturally.

Consider deepening your experience by scheduling a virtual Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultation prior to the program.  In order to support you during today’s challenging times,  we’ve reduced the fee for this evaluation by 30% for a limited time. An experienced Ayurvedic practitioner will conducts an in-depth doshic evaluation to determine what your natural state of being is and identify your imbalances. 

The Next Best Thing to Being Here

This is not a pre-recorded program where you watch videos and try to keep up. These are live-streaming, interactive sessions with the same expert faculty you’d experience on our campus. You will have ample opportunities to ask questions, voice concerns, participate in discussion, and connect with fellow participants.
