For months I had been searching for an answer. I was depressed, gaining weight, unable to sleep and on the verge of starting medications. As a physician, I prescribe medications all the time but I did not want to go that route. I wanted to find the joy and peace I thought was missing from my life in a more... More

I cannot be thankful enough for my experience at this retreat. My daughter and I weren't quite sure exactly what the retreat was about, but our arrival quickly allayed any reservations we may have had. Every member of the staff was warm, friendly, and answered our every question. Our entire experience created even more of a bond between my daughter... More

I have been caressing the idea to go to this retreat for a while. Once I arrived, I questioned myself why have I not made this decision earlier. While there, people from many walks of life were reunited, as we all share meals amazingly cooked with love and care. I feel none of us were there by chance... As I... More

This was a magical experience from inception. I felt stressed and out of balance and typed Ayurveda retreat into google not knowing what I sought, or what might appear. I knew I needed to pack a bag and go when this lovely, well-reviewed place appeared. Thus, my search was over before it even began. I called on a Friday morning... More

My 28 year old daughter and I had such an amazing bonding trip at this very special oasis away from it all. We had daily 2 1/2 hr. Ayurvedic treatments with 2 massage therapists. Such a treat! All the therapists were wonderful! We got a consultation from Richard to learn about the Ayurvedic healing ways, 2 great yoga classes daily... More

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.

Stress had taken over control of my body and I was a wreck. I was having significant neurologic issues that could not be explained through western medicine. I came to Ayurveda Health Retreat with the hope of healing my mind, body, and spirit. That is exactly what this family of beautiful souls did for me. They guided me spiritually, healed... More

I have never gone on a vacation alone and had never been on a retreat, so I was very nervous going in. 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

... from the moment you walk in, you know this will be a unique experience! Special spices and herbs fill the air and welcoming smiles will make you feel at home.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ayurveda Health Retreat (AHR) is one of the premier retreat centers in Florida that offers traditional Ayurvedic medicine and Panchakarma treatments. The AHR was established by Richard Masla, ND, in 2001 and is located in the small historic town of Alachua, in north central Florida. The Retreat initially had only one treatment room and an office space. From these humble beginnings, it now encompasses three buildings: a beautiful yoga studio, a retreat center and a yoga ashram. 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
