Ananda Spa Healing Holidays are truly transformative, looking at each individual in a holistic manner. The Dhyana Self Realisation Program allows guests to gain more control over their physical and mental faculties, balancing them emotionally as well as spiritually. Wellness guests are guided through daily meditation sessions including Yoga Nidra (physic sleep), Ajapa Japa (spontaneous mantra chanting), Antar Mouna (inner silence) and Trataka (gazing on a candle flame). One-on-one hatha yoga sessions are personalised for each guest to help release physical stiffness and tensions and attain stillness, whilst Pranayama breathing techniques balances the energy and internalises the mind to assist meditative practices. Topics related to Yogic philosophy and its incorporation into daily practices are discussed with the Yoga Guru. The Dhyana program also includes Swadhaya or self-study which is a deeper reflection on each day’s experiences. Multi award winning Ananda in the Himalayas has long been known as one of Asia’s top luxury Ayurveda resorts with a fantastic focus on holistic wellbeing. The resort looks like a palace and has royalty and celebrities gracing its doors. We love the authenticity of the wellness programs.
