At Monte Vista, we offer daily Ayurvedic Lifestyle and Dietary Consultations for our guests as well as drop in visitors. Our Certified Ayurvedic Wellness Practicioner is available for consultations and supervises all of our Ayurvedic Detox Programs.
Ayurveda works on the principal of balance verses imbalance. When a person is in balance he feels happy, healthy, alert, motivated and vibrant. When a person is out-of-balance, he feels sad, anxious, fatigued, or even depressed. In life, we are always moving in and out of balance. Your initial Ayurvedic Consultation will assess these imbalances, and direct you on a path back into balance.
Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy
According to Ayurveda, India's traditional medical system, each one of us has an inborn constitution, or prakriti, that shapes our bodies, minds, and predilections. Most yoga teachers know at least a little about Ayurveda and have some notion of the basic constitutional types (doshas) of kapha, pitta, and vata. According to the Ayurvedic Practitioner Swami Shivananda, the Sanskrit word "dosha" literally means "that which becomes imbalanced." This reflects the Ayurvedic belief that people of different constitutions, left to their own devices, often make lifestyle decisions—and choose yoga practices—that tend to put them further out of balance. Ayurveda also holds that people of different constitutions are prone to diseases that reflect the ways the doshas become imbalanced.
Our Ayurvedic treatments are based upon centuries-old Ayurvedic therapies that support balance and bliss in your life. The revitalizing and therapeutic treatments offered are customized to your particular needs.
Your therapist will use specific oils, herbs, and aromas chosen to provide you with optimal balance and nourishment for your mind-body constitution. All therapies are natural, gentle, and delightfully pleasing.
