Weight Management

Ananda in the Himalayas

This programme is designed to boost metabolism, promote better digestion and absorption of essential nutrients, weight loss and a toned body with improved stamina. Meditation is the key component to help balance the mental and physical aspects of weight management. 

The fundamental pillars are detox, exercise, yoga, meditation and an individualised diet plan. Exercise sessions will be created based on cardiovascular function, muscle strength and flexibility to obtain optimal results.

Diet plans are composed of organic ingredients with balanced micro and macro nutrients to give your body the fuel it needs to achieve results and boost your metabolism in order to maintain weight.

Treatments such as Udwartana; a paste of herbal powders mixed with water that is then applied to the skin and then massaged off just as it dries, will reduce the subcutaneous fat within the body. Essential oils are infused with sea salt for an intense Aromatherapy body scrub to withdraw toxins from the skin. Abhyanga (full body massage with warm oil), Choornaswedana (full body massage with essential oils and warm herbal bundles), Aromatherapy and Aroma cocoon transport the toxins through circulatory channels in preparation to remove them through cleansing treatments. Medicated oil and decoction enemas completely eliminate the toxins from the body and enhance metabolic rate.
