Rebalance with Ayurveda

February 14, 2024 - Sometimes you have to truly immerse to make meaningful and lasting change. If you’re seeking help to balance your hormones why not embrace a holistic, high touch Six Senses Vana program to reset your intentions and manifest magic.

A place of serenity

In a forest setting outside Dehradun, under the mighty and mystical gaze of the Himalayan Mountains, Six Senses Vana is a place that protects and nurtures. Every retreat, from Yogic Detox to Pre and Post Natal Care, and Mindful Menopause to Stress Relief Hiking, provides space to discover and flourish, supporting you to step back into your world renewed and rebalanced.

If you’re interested in navigating life changes and lifestyle by taking the natural route, Six Senses Vana harnesses thousands of years of natural healing wisdom and perfectly distills it for the modern age. Ayurvedic principles can help you discover your intuitive self and harmonize the delicate balance between mind, body, and spirit for a gentle, intervention-free pathway to healing.

Head Ayurveda Clinician, Dr. Jayachandran, explains how a Vana program and Ayurvedic principles can work for you, “A dynamic equilibrium of bio-energy (vata, pitta, and kapha) is essential for physical and mental health, and to improve and maintain overall well-being. To balance bio-energy, the first step is to identify any imbalances and recommend diet and lifestyle changes, including herbs and therapies, in order to begin healing on a cellular level.”

Whatever stage of life you’ve reached, our kind-hearted team of skilled healers guide you through a personalized combination of Ayurveda, Yoga, Tibetan Medicine, and Natural Healing Therapies. Every retreat includes full-board accommodation with all meals provided and prepared with guided nutrition, daily retreat activities, treatments, and comfortable, traditional attire to wear for the length of your stay.

New retreats for 2024

Mindful Menopause Journey

An empowering program for menopausal women to give you the tools and knowledge needed to navigate this life transition with grace and vitality while fostering a sense of community and support. We’ll help you achieve your best physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual potential with a combination of Ayurvedic and Sowa Rigpa treatments, Natural Healing Therapy, and personalized activities tailored to your preferences and needs.

As your hormones begin to balance and stress evaporates, you’ll start to achieve equilibrium. As Dr. Jaya elaborates, “Ayurvedic treatments along with lifestyle changes and some unique plant extracts can alleviate symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flushes, mood swings, and sleep disturbances.”

Whatever your current menopause treatment, Dr. Jaya explains, “There are many kinds of herbal preparations and therapies that can help treat underlying imbalances that do not interfere with HRT.” Giving yourself permission to incorporate mindfulness practices and stress reduction techniques into your daily life will be a ritual you’ll continue long after you leave India.

Ayurvedic Pre or Post Natal Care

Our Ayurvedic Programs for Pre or Post Natal Care take a holistic and traditional approach to supporting the physical and emotional well-being of mothers-to-be and new mothers.

Pre Natal Care is a nurturing program focused on supporting and preparing you for the physical and emotional challenges during childbirth. We recognize the unique needs of each woman and can help reduce the aches and pains that often occur during pregnancy by supporting the toning of your abdominal muscles, nurturing your well-being with nourishing food, and cocooning you in a safe and soothing environment.

Post Natal Care is an empowering program focused on supporting and promoting a smooth recovery by helping you to transition with grace and ease into your new role. Giving you the strength and peace of mind to step with confidence into the latest chapter in your life, we recognize the unique needs of you and your newborn and tailor the program accordingly.

Dr. Jaya tells us, “Ayurveda places significant emphasis on postnatal rejuvenation for mothers. Treatments aim to balance vata during the postpartum period through nourishing foods and gentle massages to support the mother's physical recovery and emotional well-being after childbirth.”

Make time for sessions without your baby by bringing your partner or a nanny to support you with childcare. Located at the top of our retreat, our two- and three-bedroom Casas are home-style accommodations that are perfect for the whole family.

Yogic Detox

Inspired by our popular Yoga and Detox retreats, we have combined both elements to help you find your flow in the motherland of mantras, whether you’re a beginner, improver, or expert yogi. Drawing on asana (Hatha yogic postures) and Sat Kriya (Kundalini yoga); pranayama, meditation, and a nutritious and delicious balanced diet, this promises to be a profound experience.

During your stay, you’ll cleanse body and mind, increase energy levels, improve clarity of thought and start to quiet your mind. You’ll also find that by following a clean diet of whole foods, based on your dosha (body type), you’ll rest and improve your digestive system while boosting your immunity for a healthy glow, inside and out.

Stress Relief Hiking Retreat 

This special retreat offers a beautiful balance of invigorating physical activity, healing relaxation, soothing touch from expert therapists, and informative workshops to help combat the stressors of everyday life.

On guided outdoor hikes, you’ll explore the breathtaking natural landscape surrounding Six Senses Vana, allowing you to connect with nature, boost your fitness, and clear your mind. When you’re not outside, yoga and mindfulness sessions will promote mental clarity and inner peace, while expert therapists practice traditional and modern techniques to release tension and promote relaxation. Informative workshops covering various aspects of wellness – including nutrition, stress management, and overall well-being – will prepare you to continue the good work at home.

Fall under Six Senses Vana’s spell

From the clothes you wear to the food you eat, every element of your retreat is curated to allow you to enact a positive transformation on your health and well-being using ancient, natural, tried-and-tested practices. Under these soothing conditions, you can come as you are, connect to each other, and manifest lasting change.

As Dr. Jaya says, “Our programs give Vanavasis space for self-discovery and transformation, improving sleep quality, aiding digestion, achieving flexibility, strength, and balance. Guests leave feeling centered and connected to themselves, others, and nature.”
