SDJ Ayurvedalaya is a 14-acre private serene campus nestled between the lush green forest cover and Western Ghat mountain range. This silent locale, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city offers a warm and healing environment engulfed in a tranquil atmosphere. The place is vast but humble, enabling the co-existence of thousands of trees, plants, birds, Deers, cows butterflies, insects and even elephants freely moving around the property and sometimes breaking open ours to enjoy the mangoes, jackfruits and more.
The natural ambience that is in tune with the seasonal rhythms makes one enjoy and appreciate Ayurveda outside in addition to the treatments. It also helps to slow down and live the present moment and helps to surrender to the experience and enjoy the full benefits of treatments. SDJ Ayurvedalaya remains deeply connected to nature. Every detail has been put together to make sure you get the most of physical mental and spiritual healing
Daylife at SDJ Ayurvedalaya, post the treatments, consultations and discussions are mainly internalizing, just being oneself, resting in a Do-nothing mode yet enjoying and not being restless about it. One’s reflection, contemplation, practices and meditative mindset further deepen the journey and hence spending time alone is encouraged more than socializing.
SDJ calendar marks seasons, auspicious days, festivals and special days for prayers and these are then revered through prayers, celebrations, gatherings, music, bhajans, cuisines and creative expression in a traditional way.
The day starts as you wake up to birds chirping before sunrise with a medication to consume at 6 AM and off to bed at 9.30 PM after the last medication of the day if prescribed. In between, in a gentle and spaced out manner, there would be external treatments, internal medications, consultations, three meals plus a snack served in the living space plus optional daily activities like guided meditation, Yoga Nidra, Bhajans, prayers and so on.
