Ayurvedic treatments are a lot about energy and positivity. The therapists offering massages and other treatments at our hospitals, play a vital role by being able to exude positive energy. They achieve this through effective training and practice of Kalaripayattu, an ancient martial art form of Kerala, which effectively brings healing energy and flexibility to the body. #meandcghearth#ayurveda

“A patient’s attitude and approach to life is important in tackling an ailment. The care is highly customized at the Kalaris. We try to find the root of a problem, and that could be emotional, so we build up the patient’s strength to handle that.” ⠀ – Dr. Sreelal Sankar, Kalari Rasayana⠀ ⠀ #meandcghearth#ayurveda ⠀ ⠀
When you go on the trek through the Periyar Forest, it’s not just the animals you need to look out for. Try to find soapnut, the fruit of the reetha tree which can be used as a 100% organic replacement for synthetic cleansers. The seed is removed from the shell, after which the shells are dried in the sun. The presence of saponin is what helps it clean almost everything – from hair to utensils to cars. #spicevillage#meandcghearth

Though I travel far and wide, there is a place not far from home that is our ( mine and my husband's) happy place- it's a small , boutique property in the French quarter of Pondicherry, that belongs to @cghearth . We just returned after a weekend there. I feel more relaxed here, than anywhere in the world, sometimes we do nothing more than read or walk or use the small pool..have a quiet dinner on the terrace restaurant and sleep peacefully. There's a small Ayurvedic spa too, which gives a great oil massage. It seems to recharge us and ...

Smell is our most powerful sense. Notice how a smell is activated, and understand its impact on you. Does it bring comfort? Is it triggering nostalgia? Or a sense of alertness? Mindful smelling can transform your mood and make you calm.⠀ #meandcghearth#cghearth
