KOLLENGODE - PALAKKAD, KERALA
Kalari Kovilakom, the palace of the ancient Vengunad Kingdom in Kerala is now converted into a palace for Ayurveda by CGH Group (Kerala, India). It offers Ayurveda in its most authentic and substantive form as the Rajas of Vengunad would have had it. Adhering to the strict tenets of Ayurveda as an universal healing art rather than a medical system, the treatment offered is a combination of the physical, psychological and spiritual therapies in our approach to health that is as relevant to the modern world as it was to the ancient world. Nothing has been re-invented, nothing diluted. The Ayurveda treatments are
complimented and supported by yoga and meditation practices.
There is a minimum stay requirement of 14 days so this is not an option for somebody looking for a quick rejuvenation.
However, for the passionate Ayurveda believer, or for those who feel the need for a complete rest from the harshness and
cruelty of modern life - this is the place! At Kalari, every therapy is personal. The treatments are customized for you by the
doctors, often combined with yoga and other methods to provide deep healing from within and without.
Every treatment is based on your needs and your ayurvedic body type. Even the food you're served is
individual, with health drinks and herbal preparations. The ayurvedic center offers the kind of
accommodation that best complements the ayurvedic treatment. Kalari is a combination of spa, ayurvedic
hospital and an ashram. Get here for your anti aging, weight reduction, detoxification or stress management
