In ancient India, holistic living was a way of life. People inherently understood the balance of nature, the ways of the Universe and how the elements affected not just their physical health, but their mental well-being. It was understood that if they achieved harmony within, they would be at peace with their surroundings. On the fast track to progress, our world changed as did we; but deep within us we have always understood and upheld the beliefs and principles of our ancestors. To seek harmony, to balance themselves again, to be one with their surroundings, Indians have been known to ‘retreat’ to the peace and quiet of the mountains… to the stillness of the hills and the natural flow of the rivers.
This is the very philosophy which brought Ananda – In The Himalayas into being. More than ever before the New Age individual moving on today’s fast track recognises the need to retreat, find holistic remedies, and rejuvenating locales. At Ananda we have tried to recreate the synergy of mind body and intellect not just through the natural Himalayan locales and the proximity to the mountains and the river, but through the rejuvenating and ancient processes and philosophies of Ayurveda, Yoga and Vedanta combined with contemporary international therapies which enhance and augment the original.
Ananda believes that each individual is unique. So too are the programmes and experiences that we offer. Individual needs and requirements are assessed prior to the start of your chosen programme, through a personal consultation with our Ayurveda and wellness consultants. This is an intrinsic part of assisting the individual on his/her private journey to understanding the self.
