I don't even know where to start - loved the people, the place, the food - everything! Every year I try to do something for myself for my birthday and for a few years I had been wanting to do a yoga retreat. In my extensive searching I happened to come across Ayurveda and after reading reviews on Trip Advisor... More

If you're interested in a spiritual journey in a communal environment, this is the place for you. Casual bedrooms, shared bathrooms and community meals are commonplace. It has a bed & breakfast feel to it which allows the opportunity to meet new people and partake in some thoughtful discussions. I would have preferred a more remote location as you can... More

First you will have a terrible time trying to get an appointment... They cancelled my appointment twice within an hour of my appointment, after I already took time off of work. Then when you can finally get to your appointment don't be shocked when the place is nothing special, rooms smelt, food was horrible, and yoga was not even good... More

Below are the pros and cons of my stay: Pros: - Food: The food was excellent!! I still think about the quinoa that I had for dinner and the hot cereal for breakfast. Please note... More

This place has without a question strong fundamentals of Ayurveda knowledge. It is very modest, small and you are the center of all team members that work there. I came there with a strong pain in my left side, where my digest system is, and after few days on the Ayurveda diet and some herbs, the pain was gone. And... More

I found the Retreat to be a place of calming, caring atmosphere. You can truly unwind and be nurtured and let the focus be on you! I had the best massage, oil treatments, and steam bath of my life!! My massage therapist worked her magic with skillful and heavenly massage, creating a blissful and calming state. I would recommend this... More

I am delighted that the Ayurveda Health Retreat is only 1.5 hours from my home. I enjoy the ambiance, the fellowship and the peace of this home like setting. The food is wonderful as well. I plan to visit quarterly for panchakarma treatments between the seasons to keep a check on my health in a natural way. I love this... More

I have to be honest, I've been on the fence about the AHR for quite some time, but I finally made the decision to go during the winter break, and let me tell you, it was the best choice I could have made. Richard was so helpful, and easy to talk to, and really guided my stay toward a relaxing,... More

If you are looking for a non traditional healing centre, I recommend looking to Ayurveda. This deep healing method treats you at all levels, physical, emotional and with healing massage and healthy nutritional organic food. The centre is small so you get personal attention which is wonderful .

The time I spent at the retreat center was amazingly restorative. The treatments are wonderful, the staff are loving and pampering and the food is delicious. I came home very mellow and able to cope with the stress in my life. I've taken some of the things I’ve learned (and delicious recipes) into my daily routine - they are very... More
