Join us for a weekend of discovery and empowerment in the stunning setting of Namo Buddha Resort. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Sarita Shrestha we tap into Ayurveda’s wisdom to uncover the wealth of knowledge, practices and guidelines to help care for our bodies, hearts and minds as women.

Ayurveda and Yoga are often coined as the sister sciences of the Vedic tradition, for good reason. Ayurveda, literally translated from the Sanskrit as ‘the knowledge (veda) of life (ayu)’ is the traditional holistic healing science of the Indian subcontinent. Tracing its origins over 5000 years, it is a practical science of right living, that offers preventive and curative treatments by the use of food and natural elements (herbs, minerals etc) for the imbalances that we experience as the absence of joy in life and/or illnesses.

Yoga, a term that is now recognized worldwide, is a science of evolution– of awakening our full potential as human beings. It prescribes right thought, right action, a healthy body, clear energy and refined mind as pillars for a life of sustained wellbeing and the full, creative expression of ourselves.

Both Yoga and Ayurveda celebrate the co-existence of Shiva (male principle) and Shakti (feminine principle). Both also prescribe specific practices and care-taking guidelines for each.

This weekend, learn about, explore and honor the beauty and uniqueness of the Shakti within you. Uncover your unique constitution and learn to move, eat, think and feel your way towards a healthier, more present and more vibrant you.

  • daily asana & pranayama practice
