ANANDA IN THE HI­MALAYAS, UT­TARAK­HAND, IN­DIA

REBOOTING BODY AND SOUL

Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - WELL BEING -

Yes, it’s a whop­ping price, but our vet­eran spa tester was so over­whelmed by the ‘gen­uinely life-chang­ing’ won­ders of the Ayurveda-based pro­gramme that she has started an Ananda piggy bank. With daily yoga/med­i­ta­tion ses­sions (plus op­tional phi­los­o­phy classes), this hospi­tal for the soul also fea­tures de­li­cious gourmet food, which is pre­scribed for your body type (dosha) at your first con­sul­ta­tion with the res­i­dent Ayurvedic doc­tor. Pack­ages in­clude Detox, Stress Man­age­ment, Ac­tive, Ayurvedic Re­ju­ve­na­tion and Yoga – our tester’s choice, with one-on-one lessons from in­spir­ing teach­ers, held out­side on a stone am­phithe­atre in the hazy In­dian sun­shine. Af­ter­noon Ayurvedic pampering in­cluded ‘some of the best mas­sages of my life and an Amethyst Re­ju­ve­na­tion fa­cial that took off ten years’. Other fans in­clude Oprah Win­frey, the Duchess of Corn­wall, the Gate­ses and Brad Pitt.

Well­be­ing Es­capes of­fers a seven-night Yoga pro­gramme, in­clud­ing flights, trans­fers, full board, all treat­ments, ac­tiv­i­ties and con­sul­ta­tions, from €4,820 per per­son for dou­ble oc­cu­pancy; well­beingescapes.com
