"The Secret of Daily Routine” 


"Dinacharya – Daily Routine or the Ayurvedic Secret of Keeping a Good Flow in Your Life.” 

This retreat will be about Dinachary and Abhyanga – and is for all of you who really want to understand why daily routine is so important, how to apply and how to advise it to your potential clients or yoga students, and how to do Abhyanga in a way that simply supports that.

Daily routine is considered Medicine Nr. 1 in ayurveda, so it is beneficial and wise to dive deep into this matter, for all who study ayurveda and yoga. This deeper knowledge on how the flow of life supports health and stability for all of us. Starting with practical things like tongue scraping, and applying eye powder, and so forth, up to prayer and meditation: we all get it explained in depth by Dr. Vijith AND we all LIVE it during these days of the retreat. A prefect combination!

This seminar is an excellent addition for all who have done the Nutrition Course as well as everyone who did another introductory module on Ayurveda. But even though announced as a beginners retreat – also more advanced students can still always benefit from this retreat, as it is taught by an expert ayurveda physician – Dr. Vijith, supported by his wife Dr. Vidya - who can teach at more levels at the same time.

Dr. Vijith and Dr. Vidya are great teachers of authentic ayurveda – and it is my personal experience that when you study with such teachers – your understanding speeds up at least 3-fold. Also – and especially so – on a deeper level! Dr. Vijith and Dr. Vidya teach straight from the Classical Texts, but in a way which is super-accessible and modern.

This retreat provides absolute outstanding ayurveda education, especially so if you already plan to continue studies at the Delight Academy | Ayurveda, as we will offer – in our continuing curriculum – more and more direct study with Dr. Vijith, through video classes and through intern programs in India.

from Dr. Vijith's website and his clinic, see also:

"A physician in Ayurvedic terms is known as VAIDYA, or one who has a perfect knowledge about the subject. Here Ayurveda being a very personalized knowledge system it demands a long and arduous training in the theory and practice of the system under a GURU or preceptor. The soul of this institution is one such rare personality who had an intensive training under two of the best practicing traditions existing in Kerala. Vaidya Vijith Sasidhar after acquiring his graduation in Ayurveda decided to go in for the traditional learning and the result has been a fine practitioner who is not ready to be constrained under the shackles of orthodoxy and embraces the universality of the science in its true sense.

Vaidya Vijith has also worked on several path breaking research programs in one of the best research institutions in India. Of late, he has been on a pursuit of designing innovative practice methods for meeting the demands of a rapidly changing world.

Sreekrishna Ayurveda Chikitsa Kendram has been his personal dream. This healing institution blends the olden tradition of ayurveda in which the home of Ayurvedic physician used to be the home of the patient during the time of treatment procedures which ensured a personal care and constant support by the physician and modern amenities for a demanding world. Situated on the picturesque banks of the Vadayar River it ensures a healing touch to your body and soul.

Over the time in order to meet the growing demands two like minded physicians from the same tradition have been brought in to fulfill the idea of personalized care. Dr. Sreejith K.J. and Dr. Diana Sreejith would be serving as the resident physicians to provide round the clock services to the patrons."
