My weekend at AHR was amazing. I was looking for a spiritual retreat to heal my mind body and soul. I can not wait to go back and spend a week at this sanctuary. All of the staff are so loving and caring. Richard created a unique retreat that I look forward to enjoying for many years.

Immediately I felt at home and comfortable, the staff and director, Richard, made me feel like family and I never wanted to leave! The food was lovingly prepared and served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The treatments made... More

After dealing with chronic pain issues for over 20 years with little success, I was pretty much at my wits end. I was fortunate to stay at AHR for close to 3 weeks & my healing began almost as soon as I arrived. After learning my way around & settling into the routine, I set the outside world aside &... More

Once again, the Ayurvedic Health Retreat has exceeded my expectations. I have found this to be one of the most nurturing, peaceful and truly welcoming places around. Very warm and attentive staff, delicious food, peaceful surroundings and a feeling of calm. The services were relaxing, effective, and restorative. If you really need an escape, this is the place!

I spent five days at the Ayurveda Center in April and found the experience to be life changing. The Panchakarma treatments, meals, yoga classes and staff exceeded my expectations. I left with a sense of balance and inner peace.

Annually we serve hundreds of guests who visit us from all over the world. We are a group of dedicated health professionals who have created an authentic Ayurvedic retreat offering traditional Kerala Ayurvedic therapies. We have an Ayurvedic Practitioner, a Doctor of Naturopathy, psychologist, massage therapists, Reiki healers, and yoga & meditation teachers. Richard Masla, our Ayurvedic Practitioner, studied traditional Ayurveda under Dr. Vasant Lad, Dr. Pankaj Naram and Dr. Syama. Richard has mastered the ancient art of Kerala Ayurvedic Panchakarma and has trained all of our massage therapists. We're here to accommodate you, whether you need a weekend refresher or a full 21-day retreat. We look forward to being of service! ... more   less
