I spent a month at AYV in June, choosing the monsoon package which includes 3 hours of treatment instead of the usual 1 hour. I knew I wanted to do the panchakarma detox before I arrived and had been considering going to a yoga ashram in Kerala that I had been to a couple of times before. However, I opted... More

Let's say that I know a bit about Ayurveda & have gone to quite a few retreats. If you are wondering whether this could be the right place for you in terms of; authenticity, knowledge of the staff, kindness of the staff, understanding of the staff, organization as a whole, the food, the treatments, the location – and most importantly...

I did 21 days of Panchakarma and 10 days of Rejuvenation at Ayurveda Yoga Villa in February to March 2012. I found it to be an incredible experience, it felt as if the process removed a huge amount of long-held-onto emotional and physical toxins from deep inside of me. I felt quite a strong personal transformation, and learnt a lot about myself,...

AYV is such beautiful setting in which to restore and enhance body, mind, and spirit! The atmosphere is supportive, loving, and relaxed. In short, I would highly recommend a stay at AYV. In long and for more comments, please read on. Yoga classes were quite nice (hatha yoga). Pranayama (yogic breathing) is emphasized and is part of yoga class. Kalari... More

I have been a to a few places to detox and recharge and this is the best so far. It is not 5 star in facilities but it is in cleanliness, if you are fussy about cleanliness and food then you will relax here as both are excellent. The location is amazing and if you are not into yoga but... More

I just got back from spending 35 days at the Yogavilla. I must say that while the experience was VERY different from my expectations, the results exeeded my preconceptions of what I was going to India for. I went for weight management, but did the panchakarma treatment. I was uncomfortable at first with the process ( I didn't research much... More

I promised myself a full panchakarma programme after my last visit to AVY two years ago. Things have changed - three doctors now, twice daily pujas on site, Kalari exercise classes (not for the faint-hearted) for those who want something more than yoga, and they now grow and produce many of their medicines. I arrived with a painkiller dependency for... More

First of all I would like to thank all the staff for their work and to the owner for having started this project! We are a couple and came to AYV because we needed to get our energy back after a big and long trip. We didn't know much about Ayurveda so at first we were a bit apprehensive about... More

I spent 34 days at AYV and it was a truly wonderful experience. The riverside location is amazing and the property is surrounded by beautiful nature providing an environment of peace and tranquility. I stayed in one of the Herbal Cottages and felt it was worth the small additional cost. My cottage was very private and overlooked the beautiful, fragrant... More

I had an amazing stay at the Ayurveda Yoga Villa and could strongly recommend it to anyone! I was there for the full panchakarma program in March/April this year and came back completely transformed of both body and mind. This was my first experience of ayurvedic treatment and I did not know what to expect. I had given up on... More
