About Wellness

ABOUT WELLNESS

- WHAT IS AYURVEDA?


Practiced by the great sages of ancient India, Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of holistic medicine defined as Knowledge of Life (Ayu meaning life and Veda meaning knowledge). It describes the healthy and unhealthy state of life (mind and body) and describes the methods of balancing unhealthy conditions. Ayurveda focuses on the wellness of every person as a whole. Since the constitution differs from person to person, the wellness therapies also differ and are unique to every individual.


- WHAT IS NATUROPATHY?


Human beings have remarkable recuperative powers that can heal the body on its own without external chemical or surgical interference, which simply suppresses symptoms but does not heal nor remove the root cause of the disease. Naturopathy seeks to heal the body by promoting its own internal processes. Naturopathy gives importance to internal hygienic conditions using healing therapies such as Dietetics, Hydrotherapy, Mud therapy, Reflexology, and Massage, among others.


- CAN I COME FOR JUST ONE CLASS OF YOGA?

- WHAT PROCEDURES TAKE PLACE WHEN I ARRIVE?


When you arrive at YO1, you will be directed to a Wellness Reception area. At the Wellness Reception is a Wellness Concierge who will greet you and obtain some basic information from you. This information is passed along to a Naturopathy Counselor who will welcome you and guide you to a Counselor Room to speak to you about the objective of your visit. As a part of the Counselling process, the Counselor fills in a Therapy and Diet sheet and hands this over to you. The Counselor also explains the significance of each therapy suggested, as well as diet and juices. Based on your health conditions, the Counselor will refer you to Acupuncture Practitioners and Yoga instructors. Once the Naturopathy counselling gets completed (about 15-20 minutes), you will be directed to the Ayurveda Practitioner where the practitioner will review what has been suggested so far by the Naturopath. The Ayurveda Practitioner will then conduct a Dosha Analysis based on Vata/Pitta/Kapha principles and decide your Dosha along with the Ayurveda therapies he or she suggests. After the entire Counselling session is complete, you will be sent back to the Wellness Reception. The Concierge team will provide additional information, an itinerary, and schedule your recommended therapies. You will then be guided to the Therapy Section for the administration of therapies.

Guests on a normal diet are recommended to drink 4 glasses of juices, in addition to their meals, to keep hydrated.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient healing therapy from India that seeks to restore health by looking at a person as a whole instead of focusing on a specific disease. Developed over 5,000 years ago, this alternative healing therapy creates balance and strengthens the body’s natural healing ability. According to Ayurveda, diseases are the result of imbalances and impurities that accumulate in the body over time. This is a mind-body technique and all the treatments are based on the constitution of an individual.

Can Yo1 really help me?

Most of the health disorders are a result of an unhealthy diet, poor digestion, stress, environmental toxins and other factors, which over time, can affect the proper functioning of the body. The healing therapies at Yo1 are designed specifically to address the root cause of disorders, instead of simply focusing on providing relief from specific symptoms. We understand that each person is different, and we customize our treatments to meet individual needs.

Will I continue enjoying the benefits even after returning home?

Our experts at Yo1 target the root cause of health disorders and seeks to restore balance in the body. The end result of our therapies are stronger immunity, better digestion and total detoxification of the body that allows you to enjoy the results even after you return home. You take with you instructions on what to do to enjoy optimal health after you leave our health resort and this ensures that you can continue enjoying the benefits even after returning home.

What is Panchakarma?

These are a set of 5 traditional Ayurvedic purification treatments. These therapies together cleanse the entire body, remove toxins and restore a healthy balance. Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments can remove dangerous fat-soluble toxins like DDT, PCBs and dioxins from the body. The five Panchakarma procedures used to detoxify the body are Vamana, Virechana, Nasyam, Anuvasana Vasti and Kashayam Vasti. After counselling, each guest will be advised on which Panchakarma therapy is suitable for their mind-body type during their 7-10 day stay. Typically, a complete Panchakarma Program that includes all five steps requires two months of therapy.
