Wellness is an integral part of a CGH Earth Experience. Ancient Indian sciences have contributed much to bringing this awareness to the world and our properties offer a whole range of therapies with expert guidance and time-tested methods.
Yoga, the ancient Indian way of life, is a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline which helps you realise yourself, find insight and tranquility. Experienced practitioners in this discipline will guide you on this path, helping you to purify all aspects of your being and bringing that special sense of peace, so elusive in modern day life.
Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of medicine known to man. Making use of nature’s bounty, it uses natural plants and herbs to treat all kinds of ailments. And even if there isn't much wrong with you (and we hope there isn't) Ayurvedic treatments and massages will refresh you wonderfully bringing joy and new energies to your holiday.
Wellness at CGH Earth takes many other forms too. From Art Therapies, to simple everyday acts, such as Fish Feeding or Vegetable Chopping, we have created many meditative moments that help bring about healing from within.
A stay at SwaSwara is much more than just a holiday. It is the beginning of a journey to discover one’s true self. And yoga is the instrument that will take you on this inner voyage. A voyage which can last a lifetime but which can be experienced in a few days. At SwaSwara, you can learn to understand the needs of your mind, body and soul, and embark on a new way of life.
Adepts of this journey will be your guides, slowly taking you down a path that has brought harmony into the lives of so many. If this is your first experience of yoga, they will take great joy in initiating you. And if you have had some experience, they will gladly provide guidance in your quest for the next level.
Try yoga even once and you'll be amazed at the change it brings. Start the day with an early morning session on the beach. Breathe in the fresh salty air and the aroma of the sea. Listen to the sound of waves gently clear your mind of all negativity. You will feel your whole being energised and strangely refreshed. There you go. Your inner journey has begun!
