Get ready for a truly refreshing holiday at Soma Palmshore, with rejuvenating Ayurveda therapies and massages delivered by Somatheeram – the Ayurveda People.
Ayurveda, the ancient science of life that is still very relevant in this era, focuses on the balance of the body, mind and soul. At Soma Palmshore, a range of ayurveda wellness therapies are offered including basic massages, Pizhichil, Njavarakizhi, Sirodhara, Vasthi, Sirovasthi, Udvarthanam, Abhyangam, Nasyam, Thalam etc.
While Ayurveda deals chiefly with the health of the body and mind, Yoga deals with spiritual health. Yogic exercises with its preventive and curative values, help bring natural order and balance to neuro-hormones and to the body’s metabolism, improving endocrine metabolism. These practices naturally treat stress and stress-related disorders.
Meditation is the attainment of a high level of concentration and reaching out to the inner depths of mind. The path to meditation consists of three stages- Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (enlightenment). By concentrating on any particular object for a long time, attention is fixed and Dhyana or meditation is achieved. Prolonged meditation leads to Samadhi or enlightenment. With the accent on holistic wellness, we at Soma Palmshore hope to create an experience that inspires people to live a life full of zest and meaningful purpose, and allows them to transcend beyond the daily grind of life to blend in harmony with nature.
