Beach, lake and the sea...
The Beach & Lake is a privately owned Ayurvedic Resort, 8 kms south of Trivandrum International Airport. It’s nestled between the Arabian Sea and the Karamana river, situated on an island, blessed by nature. The concept of ayurvedic resort dawned on us in the late nineties and evolved into what it is, at present. In the process of edifying came the thought of combining ayurveda with yoga for its purity in its art, thus the formation of our yoga retreat under the guidance of a renowned guru, a member of the yoga world congress. Being ideally situated near the famous beach Kovalam, our beach resort is most sought after for its sereneness and the beauty surrounding it.
Ayurveda is a health science, the oldest and most complete healing system known today. India’s Sages prescribed Ayurveda several millennia ago and it is now gaining in popularity throughout the West, as its systems are more relevant than ever in treating the diseases of the modern age. This holistic treatment involves various types of massage and oil applications, inhalations, diet, and natural medicines as required. Treatment plans are as individual as people.
Yoga is not an ancient myth buried in oblivion. It is the most valuable inheritance of the past. In the essential need of the day and the culture of tomorrow, Yoga, the science of man, based on ancient Indian wisdom and culture, is an art of living a healthy, balanced, peaceful and contented life. Yoga, being a total integrated system, studies man in his wholeness - body, mind and spirit and is integrated to certain principles, ideas, values, attitudes and a way of life for personal and social benefits. Conceived by the great sages in their quest for self-realization, it has come to be recognized during its; long travails from the hermitages to the cities, as the science of man, a philosophy old life, a code of conduct, an attitude and an approach, as well as an art of living which is capable not only of ensuring physical well-being, mental peace harmony, moral elevation and spiritual uplift of man but also of transforming man from his gross animal existence to the sublime heights of divinity. It must, however be kept in mind that it is a long and arduous journey calling for perseverance, persistence, dedication and total surrender. To acquire a truly prosperous life style, all one needs, is regular exercise. Nothing is more likely to provide all-round health and balance than the practice of the traditional yoga sasthra.
