1 JOURNEY TO THE HOME OF YOGA

The Ananda, Himalayas, India

In ancient India, a retreat into the mountains was recognised for its ability to rejuvenate, balance and restore peace of mind. Ananda, a luxury spa resort, offers the dreamiest location in the foothills of the Himalayas, and its newly launched ‘deeper yoga programme’ is the perfect guide to a healthier life. Here, the method is simple: to learn, unlearn and relearn.

On entering the grounds, an immediate sense of release from the outside world takes place. Following a private, hatha yoga class with Reema on the terrace of the Maharaja’s Palace, everything appears to shine more brightly. Dhyana, or self-realisation, is the focus, and time with Reema may be the ticket to pacifying a chattering mind. If you would prefer to practise meditation, daily sessions with Sandeep on the lawns will get you tuned into your breath and your state of mind.

Vedanta classes, the Indian science of life, are available twice a day. The in-house philosopher from the world-renowned Vedanta Academy presents principles of life and living with passion, intelligence and grace. Whatever your level of yoga or meditation, there’s something valuable for everyone.

A classic-style spa provides your daily treatments, which become the ideal complement to your self-study. Both Eastern and Western offerings, from Ayurvedic fourhanded abhyanga to reflexology, mean that surrender is the only option. In the restaurant, chefs create up to 25 menus to feast on each day.
