Why enroll in a wellness retreat?
Too often we lose sight of our own health and well-being. We dedicate our time and energy to our jobs, to our commitments, and to other people, often to the detriment of ourselves. And when we do notice a decline in our well-being, it’s tempting to look for a quick fix to correct the imbalance and bring us back to health.
But in truth, wellness is a journey. It’s an ever-evolving practice that requires conscious engagement. Placing meaningful attention on our own wellness sometimes requires that we take a step back. In doing so, we’re able to gain the perspective to better survey our current place on the journey and can determine how to get where we’d like to be.
A Chopra Center wellness retreat offers the chance to get away from the stress of everyday life, placing focus on your entire well-being. It’s a vacation from the ordinary, allowing you to listen more closely to your body, discover its needs, and develop the tools to respond with loving intention.
What is a Chopra Center wellness retreat?
Chopra Center wellness retreats are guided by Ayurveda, a 5,000-year-old holistic healing system from ancient India meaning “the knowledge of life span” in Sanskrit. Ayurveda teaches that health is more than just the absence of disease—it is a dynamic state of vibrant balance. It believes in finding and healing the root cause of any illness or imbalance, rather than just treating the symptoms.
Following Ayurvedic principles, our wellness retreats provide you with personalized guidance to cleanse and heal your entire being. You’ll receive private consultations with our expert staff, and customized spa treatments designed for your specific dosha, or unique mind-body type. These treatments will help to detoxify your body and leave you feeling lighter and more in tune with your whole being. Learning and practicing Primordial Sound Meditation will ground and connect you to your essential being, allowing your inner voice to speak with more resonance and clarity. Daily yoga practice based on Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga will help you to cultivate mindfulness, dissolving accumulated stress and anxiety. Daily immersive sessions on topics such as nutrition, emotional well-being, and higher states of consciousness will give you the tools to continue healing long after you return home.”
Through each of the wellness treatments, activities, conversations, and consultations you’ll experience as part of your retreat, you’ll learn more about your body and how yoga, meditation, and diet can help improve your current state of well-being.
Together with physicians specializing in Ayurvedic medicine and with the input of expert educators, you’ll develop a personalized wellness program to help restore balance. You’ll gain the tools to maintain a sense of whole health even after you’ve completed the retreat, so that you can confidently continue the journey toward holistic healing on your own.
