TRAVEL ROUTE

The trips carried out by Villa Prana, rather than just promoting a cultural visit to a distant country, are a profound cultural, spiritual and therapeutic experience, promoting changes in the way we relate to others, aspects of our lives that we take as important, that formerly they were not seen in the same way.

 

It is not foreseen or guaranteed that everyone will “look” the same way, and that is not what is intended, but that each one feels the trip in their own way and with “their own” eyes.

All of our trips are open to everyone, with or without experience in the practice of Yoga, with or without a link to Villa Prana Studio.

 

We are not a travel agency, but a couple passionate about life experiences, culture and well-being. All of our trips are designed to provide an absolutely transformative experience for those who join us.

With more than 70 participants, we will continue to promote these experiences in complete safety, aiming at well-being and tranquility in all destinations, stops and services that we will provide, always with the help of our partners, whether in Portugal or at the destination.

 

Important note: It should be noted that on our trips we do not promote or condone any type of animal exploitation and we are focused on promoting sustainability at all costs in the destinations visited.

About Ayurveda Medicine

Ayurveda means, in Sanskrit, science (veda) of life (ayur).

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian therapy that uses techniques of massage, nutrition, aromatherapy, phytotherapy, among other techniques, as a method of diagnosis, prevention and also healing, based on studies of the body, soul and mind.

In this therapy, it is believed that the human body is made up of 3 principles, or Doshas, which are Vata, Pitta and Kapha, which are combinations of the elements Air, Ether, Fire, Water and Earth. As a way to balance them, massages, food and phytotherapy, specific to each Dosha, are used.

All treatments are carried out with vegetable and essential oils of high therapeutic quality.

Options will be suggested during the Panchakarma treatment to fill the day with different activities. The respective treatment lasts for 7 days.

All participants on the trip will carry a set of information that they will be able to carry out, which will be useful from that moment on. We verified in several participants of other editions that health problems that always persisted even after attempts of several treatments, with the experience of Panchakarma they obtained useful “tools” to slow down or even extinguish these imbalances.

Ayurveda Medicine can be useful for several diseases, however it should be taken into account that we are all different and what may be useful for some, may not work for others. However, there must be a compromise on both sides – therapist/patient.

Treatment days that can be complemented with free activities, or suggestions given by the organizers, such as visiting other locations, markets or monuments.
