What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda means “the science of life.” Developed over thousands of years through studying different mind and body types, Ayurveda provides a roadmap to whole-body, personalized health.

The two main guiding principles of Ayurveda are:

  1. The mind and the body are inextricably connected and
  2. Nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind. Freedom from illness depends upon expanding our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body.

COVID-19 Safety Protocols

As always, the health, safety, and well-being of our community are a top priority.

We pay close attention to the evolving nature of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and changes to related guidance from public health organizations, including the CDC, as well as local rules and regulations in effect at the locations our retreats are held. We also recognize that due to the lifting of mask mandates in public spaces, such as airplanes and hotels, more stringent safety requirements that we might seek to enforce at Chopra events regarding COVID would be insufficient to fully control the environment at our events.

Consequently, as of August 10, 2022, we are no longer requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative testing prior to attendance at Chopra events. In addition, although we highly encourage guests to continue to wear masks indoors at our events, we will not be enforcing a mask mandate unless required by local regulations.

In summary:

• Event guests are not required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.

• We will continue to screen event guests for symptoms that may be related to COVID-19 infection and, in the event of resultant concerns, prohibit participation until testing can be conducted.

• We strongly encourage, but will not require, all guests to wear a face mask in indoor event settings.

• We strongly encourage all event guests to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to attending any large gatherings, including Chopra events

Please note that our policies and procedures continue to be based on the current nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and related public health guidance, among other factors. Accordingly, this policy is subject to change. We encourage you to check this page regularly for any changes or updates to the foregoing.
