A true centre for wellbeing, Vana is situated in Dehedrun, one of India’s richest places of spirituality. Healing retreat programs can include Ayurveda, Tibetan Healing,Yoga, Natural Healing, Spa, Fitness or Aqua.
We loved their guest descriptions on Vana; some see it as an ‘ashram of the contemporary world, a sanctuary near the forest or an ideal microcosm of real life’. Its all three! Tibetan Healing one of the resort’s truly unique offering and is influenced both by Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. With these luxury healing retreats in India, you will be guided by a Tibetan Healing Doctor.
The Ayurveda Detox featured here aims to restore balance to mind, body and soul. Working on the Ayurveda principle of the doshas, your Ayurveda expert will identify dominant dosha types Pita, Kapha and Vata and from that devise a signature program to cleanse. Treatments include Ayurvedic massages such as Abyanga with potentiated herbs and massage oils and private yoga instruction.
Vana is located in Dehadrun, a most spiritual place in India. Dehradun is in the Indian State of Uttarakhand, well-connected to New Delhi and Mumbai by air and train. With stunning contemporary design, it sits on 21 acres of land, its blessed with its own orchards of mango and lychee.
Why is it a Sanctuary
It's the new kid on the block in Asia, raising the bar on what it means to be well. They look at the individual, refuse to give cookie cutter experiences (which is totally our style) and the look and feel of the place is ultimate luxury. If you love contemporary surroundings and are a bit of a neat freak like me, this wellness sanctuary is calling!
They have several different luxury detox holidays, dependant on your health and emotions. The one featured here is an Ayurvedic Detox to address imbalance in the doshas, Kapha, Pitta and Vata. It follows ancient Ayurveda to identify imbalance and the mind, body and soul.
Looks like a work of art, is mindfully prepared and highly nutritious too. Tailoring for all types, they have non-vegetarian, vegetarian and vegan meal options.
