Gokarna is one of the most important pilgrimage places in India. It is a sacred place connected with mythological stories. I am a Hindu, but still I believe, that ayurveda is not connected to any religion, it is connected to humanity! Spirituality is above religion.

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.
