Ayurveda is a 6,000 year old therapeutic system that aims to maintain the health of body, mind and spirit. Ayurveda shows us that the natural elements, such as the warmth and light of the sun, the air we breathe, and the mineral and plant substances, have an immense therapeutic value. Intelligent use of these gifts of nature, combined with a wholesome diet and a positive mindset, contribute to a healthy and fulfilling life.

Through the Youth Course I realised that there is a different life than what we live, and that’s the life that I want to live. I’ll definitely be back next year.

I have found a new inner strength that I thought I had lost forever, a renewed sense of confidence in myself, and a joy in life, in nature, in the ‘little’ things. I know when things get tough I will be fine. I can find a quiet and safe haven inside myself which is there always.
