An 12-day residencial retreat in an Ayurvedic farm at the cradle of AYM
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage was developed in Pune by Master Kusum Modak in the early 1980’s. I am honored to come back at the source to teach at Gram Gaurav Pratishthan (GGP). It is a lovely ayurvedic farm where Kusum loves to rest from city life. The place is dedicated originally to local farming and water conservation. Organic ayurvedic plants, fruits and many other vegetables are cultivate to enjoy cooking, well-eating and the preparation of many ayurvedic medicines. The ayurvedic food is prepare simply by the hand of simple people, enriched by their full heart. We will enjoy the simplicity… and focusing on learning Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, at the feet of the master, when delighted by Kusum’s visit.” Namaste, Ananta
