Stressed out, overweight and exhausted I was looking for somewhere peaceful where I could clean out and re set my health and the Yoga Villa was the perfect place.
This is NOT a spa, but the accommodation (although a bit basic) is clean and comfortable, the therapists (and indeed all the staff) are caring and professional, Dr Vipin (who is the business ! ) and his team take your care very seriously and the suroundings are beautiful.
I did Panchakarma and was there for 4 weeks but I would say you could easily do it in three weeks. Panchakarma is tough and there will be times when you wonder why on earth you are putting yourself through this BUT it was the best money I have ever spent and there is a world of difference between how I was when I arrived and how I am now. I also did the weight management diet and lost nearly 10k in 4 weeks taking me to within 5k of my ideal weight.
Do not worry about travelling solo - the atmosphere is very supportive and quite a laugh and I now have many new friends from all over the world. My time at the Yoga Villa has given me the tools I need to change my life for the better. I have heard lots of horror stories about these places and clearly quality varies widely but Yoga Villa stands head and shoulders above the rest. It is quite simply the best investment you will ever make for your health.
