A different taste of India

So often, I hear from Westerners that India is "intense" and a "difficult place to travel."

I can only imagine what it has been like for them, being plopped into New Delhi by a large travel agency, or bravely launching out alone with a guide book.

While I applaud their efforts, it is my goal that all travelers to India are able to experience my beloved Kerala for themselves.

It is as different from Delhi as Northern California is from Washington D.C., and is the most peaceful, rejuvenating place on Earth.

It truly is it's namesake, God's Own Country.

Why Ayurgamaya?

The moment you contact me, you will understand what it means to be treated personally.

My interest form is thorough, so that I may fully understand how we can create a powerful experience for you.

We will schedule a one-on-one session, where I will guide you through a few healing modalities of my ancestors.

Next, I will guide you through the perfect trip to India for the wellness of your mind, body, and spirit.

Why Ayurveda?

I specialize in Panchakarma treatment because of the awesome transformative potential of this sacred, ancient program.

In ancient Sanskrit, āyur means life, or vital power, and veda means knowledge.

I know no other medicine so deep and powerful.

The royals and the affluent of Kerala have been doing regular Panchakarmas to maintain youth and vitality for thousands of years.

I have carefully crafted relationships with clinics like Sitaram Ayurveda, Meiveda, CGH, Kairali and Punarnava, to name a few, that are 100% authentic, verified, and offer the highest in hygiene and comfort.

The Physicians are Doctors of Medicine (MD) who have undergone the basic rigorous medical training equivalent to a General Physician and a three year post graduate degree in Ayurveda.

Some of them like Sitaram Ayurveda and Kairali Ayurveda even come from hundreds of years of Ayurveda lineage.

And India has even more to offer.

One-on-one astrology sessions in India, the birthplace of astrology, are truly mystical.

India leads the artistic evolution of fashion, and is known for unique, fair-trade, hand-block-printed clothing.

Kathakali dance and ancient martial arts performances regularly show in Cochin and other cities, temples and villages.

And the nearby Western Ghats mountain range are home to some of India’s most breathtaking National Parks.

I know the best drivers in Kerala, who will pick you up in luxury vans, build you campfires in lush forest locations, and take you home to have dinner with their families.

I know owners of home-stays (small, family-run hotels) who will teach you how to cook home-made Indian food, take you to the market on Sunday, and will wait up to make sure you have hot tea and hugs the moment you arrive.

My friends give my clients the best of the best.

From boat rides at island home-stays to strolls through the village to the local Krishna temple, you're treated like family, and given additional perks that you wouldn't even know to ask for.

The reason for all this is that I attract loving, considerate, respectful clients, and all of my friends in India love taking my clients home.
