Meditation is natural to everyone
A child plays in meditation. A singer sings and a dancer dances in Meditation. A well prepared student undertakes an examination with a meditative mind. Everyone meditates unknowingly. But, when we want to practice meditation as a 'Spiritual Practice’, everyone witnesses a wondering monkey mind & feels like meditation becomes impossible. Ancient Masters know this very well. They recommend a value based lifestyle and mastery in Pranayama as Prerequisites for Meditation.
This course leads you step by step. Explains every practice clearly & gives a good exposure on Pranayama and Meditation. You will live in Meditation and be able to inspire others too.

Ayurvedic yoga massage combines elements of deep tissue oil massage using hands & feet, assisted yoga stretches and deep, coordinated breath-work.

Shiro meaning head and dhara meaning flow. An Ayurveda therapy that involves continuously pouring warm, herbal oil over the forehead; also known as the Ajna Chakra. An area of highly concentrated nerves & containing the circulation of our vital life force, or prana. The flow of oil onto the forehead creates a vibration whilst the oil saturates the forehead and scalp, penetrating deep into the nervous system.

- FOOT REFLEXOLOGY
Foot reflexology is one of the oldest treatments known to human kind, practiced for thousands of years all over the world. Its basic concept is that every point or part of the foot is directly related to other part of the body. In this way we can treat the whole body by treating the correlated points on the foot.

Relaxing oil massage, with essential oils.

The skin is the biggest organ of the body. Putting oil on it allows toxins to be released from the body and nourishment to be absorbed.

- SWEDISH BODY MASSAGE
A classic full body massage using coconut oil, helping to release tight muscles, circulate the blood & reduce tension. The Swedish massage is not about focusing on certain groups of muscles but more on the whole body. Based on the western concepts of anatomy and physiology, as opposed to energy work on meridians or sen lines that are the focus in Asian massage systems. A Swedish massage is a good fit for beginners to massage therapies. Acupuncture / etheric oils / hot cups can be added to this treatment.
- THAI YOGA MASSAGE
"Thai massage" or "Thai yoga massage" is an ancient healing system combining acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures. Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions and you will remain clothed. There is constant body contact, but rather than muscle massage, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked. The massage generally follows designated energy lines in the body, called Nadi’s. The gentle stimulation of these lines relaxes the body, unleashing the life force within you.
- AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE
Aromatherapy massage is a massage therapy using base oils or lotions that contain essential oils (highly concentrated plant based oils). During aromatherapy massage you inhale these essential oil molecules & absorb them through your skin. Oils promote beneficial changes in your mind & body by affecting the limbic system, a region in the brain that influences our nervous system.
- The Benefits of Aromatherapy Massage:
During aromatherapy massage, the skin is warmed and the blood is drawn to the surface, increasing circulation and encouraging the elimination of toxins from the body, which has the consequence of speeding up recovery time from any illness or injury. The manipulation of the muscles continues the process, whilst at the same time releasing tense knotted muscles by dispersing the buildup of lactic acid which often occurs after exercise. As the circulation increases, the oils are absorbed through the skin and carried round the body, allowing their healing effects to permeate to all the major body organs.usually the massage will be slow and gentle and living one with in a deep relaxation state.it is much recommended to anxiety or stress issue's.
- DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage is aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as it works to release chronic muscle tension or "knots" as well on trigger points.
The massage shouldn't hurt, but it's likely to be a bit more uncomfortable than a classic Swedish massage. You should always feel free to speak up if the pressure is too much for you. If the pressure is more than you can comfortably take, you might unconsciously tense up, guarding your body from pain. This makes it harder for the therapist to achieve results.

Posted onA beautiful and autehntic place to stayThis is a truly beautiful and lovely place to spend your time in Goa. I was on a yoga retreat while I was staying at Devarya Wellness and the spirit and the thoughts behind the place matched the yoga practice I was attending and living after while I was staying there. For each meal I had great vegetarian food - and if you are a vegan it’s not a problem at all to live by it there - the people that worked at Devarya seemed very happy, they did not use plastic bottles to protect the environment and the service was really good. Devarya is a beautiful place with exotic plants and flowers and at nighttime there is these light chains that makes the place magical. I will definitely recommend to stay at Devarya Wellsness specially if you are sourcing to find peace and grounding and live in a more sustainable way
