Ivana Baldo was always attracted to flying and travelling. As a stewardess of Czech Airlines she visited Mumbai for the first time in 1991 and immediately fell in love with India. Her new lifestyle became ayurveda and yoga.
Dr. Venugopal, ayurvedic practitioner, pranic healer and traditional counselor in Kerala, India, explains how Ayurveda is a holistic science that treats the body as a whole, rather than just individual symptoms. Check out the full video to learn more.
We must first ask What is yoga. It is actually every activity, which you are doing with the presence of your mind and body and if it makes you happy, then you can call it yoga. At SwaSwara we offer classical Hatha Yoga and meditation sessions.
Ayurveda is like an ancient tree growing from a deep spiritual base, branching into a rich and compact philosophical system. Medicine is only one aspect. The word ayus meaning life and veda meaning knowledge. Ayurveda is the art of living.
Swaswara offers 3 types of ayurveda programmes: The Swa Well Being is holiday programme.The Rejuvenation Programme addresses health issues arising from modern lifestyle. The Detox & Panchakarma Programme is highly personalised.
Ayurveda was always part of our family. I belong to the fourth generation of ayurveda doctors or Vaidiyas. Ayurveda is a path at the end of which you will find yourself as an individual being united with the environment, which surrounds you.
Part of ayurveda healing is not being afraid to express yourself. There is a thin line between being foolish and genial and we are afraid to cross it. We should have a good laugh or cry when we feel it, rather than trying to bottle it up and be an adult.
SwaSwara reminds me a woman, she can be moody, but still you feel her openness and free flow of all-encompassing energy. She is a mother, a sister, a healer, it's all there! I think, this is Swara of Swa, you can hear that echo in the whole way it's built.
In SwaSwara, we are very clear, that there is so called wellness tourist ayurveda and there is the classical, traditional, curative ayurveda which is what we'd like to offer and focus on.We have chosen the longer path and holistic approach, we do not compromise.
In SwaSwara you evolve along with the place. There's so much openness, that you yourself, start opening up and you see things in a new light. Slowly by slowly, you start opening up and you start loving yourself. That's what happens in SwaSwara.
It's a journey back in time through vintage Travancore, experiencing the glorious ethos and cultural moorings. Built with recreated palaces and 'nalukettus' of vintage Kerala is situated on the pristine beach.
I hesitated for publishing this story quite late, but there’s a beauty in rewinding. Makes me appreciate how all those days have become of me. The clever fall of dominoes of life events that led me to still standing. A very happy new year to all!
