Yoga means union!

Yoga is an ancient Indian physical, mental and spiritual practice with the origins dating back to the 5th or 6th century BC. It means to 'integrate' 'combine' or 'unite' and it addresses ways of integrating the body, senses, life force, the mind and the consciousness. Yoga is thus used to complement the whole healing process of the treatment with the Hatha style which concentrates mainly on the practice of physical postures (Aasanás) with an emphasis on meditation and Pranayama breathing techniques. This kind of yoga is accessible to all and is light so as to support the treatment process.

This complete body and mind experience is aimed at improving your health and total well-being. So you are welcome to participate in the daily Yoga session at AMARA .

Meditation With Ayurveda's emphasis on internal healing, meditation as a practice in disciplining the mind and the thinking process is made a core part of the treatment at AMARA Ayurveda. Meditation techniques are used to calm and relax both the mind and the body since both the mind and the body are closely tuned to each other.


In Ayurvedic philosophy all of creation is made up of the five essential elements: ether, air, fire, water, and earth. These elements are also the subtlest aspects of human life. Each person is made up of a combination of these elements, establishing their basic constitution or dosha. This is the level on which Ayurvedic healing works.

When the elements are strong and balanced within a person, they support healthy functioning on the concrete physiological level. Illnesses are regarded as aggravations of the doshas in the human body. An Ayurvedic practitioner will look to see what part of the patient's life is creating the imbalance, be it diet, lifestyle, work, emotional states, etc. Based on the nature of the imbalance, there are several basic therapeutic strategies employed.

For quantitative changes in the doshas, such as gas, hormones, mucus and calcifications, elimination therapies (Panchakarma) are used. When there is excessive material present, Panchakarma eliminates these factors directly. A metaphor for how and why this works has been offered in the ancient classics: by eliminating these excess substances from their sites of production and accumulation, an emptiness in the home site is created and the body is able to naturally rebalance itself.

In the case of toxicity, detoxifiers and digestives are employed. Disorders of the mind and spirit require mental and spiritual specific medicines in addition to bodily specific medicines. These include mantras, pujas (rituals and recitations), and other spiritual practices. Be in the company of the wise is one such behavioral prescription. These techniques operate directly on the soul/consciousness itself; hence they are effective for this purpose.


The Boons of Nature ! The equable climate, natural abundance of forests and nice weather of Kerala are best suited for Ayurveda's curative and restorative packages. Kerala is perhaps one of the few places on Earth where a temperature of 24-28 degrees is maintained during a period of continuous rain. This prevalence of moisture in the air and on the surface of the skin makes it the ideal place for natural medicines to work at their highest levels of potency. The land is also blessed with numerous medicinal plants and provides the continuity and consistency of Ayurveda medicines needed for effective treatment procedures. The same herbs with the same potency are available year after year across every season. The rich alkaloid content of the soil enhances the intensity and potency of many Ayurvedic medicines when compared to places with a different soil constitution.
