If planning to go for Panchakarma, the week or two before take extra care not to eat any heavy food or meals late at night. By taking light foods like mung dal and basmati rice with vegetables you will prepare the body for this beautiful cleansing process.
I was planning to visit Ayurveda Sanctuary from April '13, but my busy schedule prevented me from going and that only added to the already stressed up personality of mine. By the time I reached the Sanctuary in September, I was bursting with stress and tension. I needed a peaceful atmosphere and here I was, in a tropical paradise that is the Ayurveda Sanctuary. It is 15 kms from the nearest town, but that is what I was looking for: secluded, peaceful place. The cottage I was offered was superb; the doctors: what can I say, they were simply fantastic. Their individual attention for each and every guest must be really appreciated. The Yoga and meditation were never in group; the guests were allotted specific timings so that each got his own individual asanas and individual time for meditation. The Panchakarma program along with meditation and pranayama really helped me. I feel fully refreshed and rejuvenated. Will definitely go back for yet another program.
