Well after a gap of 2 yrs, I found myself again in the land of God's own country. In between had few trips here and there but there was always this whim to go to Kerala.

I'm just too much in love with Kerala.

Now coming to this vacation, the whole idea was of rejuvenation. This time I did not want to cover maximum places in the available time but to be at one place.

After lot of search on Internet and personal recommendations, zeroed upon Ayurveda Yoga Villa, Wayanad.

The place is not much heard of among travelers as it's not a commercial place or place for parties. It is located in a little secluded place away from the wayanad city.

The location and surroundings are absolutely charismatic for someone who wants to be as close to nature as possible. Serenity, calmness and peace.

The saying pin drop silence actually makes sense there.

Chirping of birds early in the morning, natural fragrance of flowers, freshness in air , not a pinch of pollution.

We never had seen the birds that we spotted there.

The beauty of the place is further enhanced by the presence of Kabini river which flows just beside the center.

All throughout the day one can hear the crystal clear sound of water flowing.

The beauty and tranquillity of the place can only be seen and felt. No words can do justice to that.

Coming to the point what I was doing at that kind of place, I went there to have a break from city life.

Rejuvenation with infusion of new energy was what I was looking for. And the center is just perfect for that.

The center is employing the ancient ayurvedic principles in treatment. From food, medicines, herbs, oils almost everything is either grown indigenously or procured from the forests. Everything is organic to the core. I have not seen the ayurveda principles being followed so religiously anywhere.

The rejuvenation program employs holistic approach towards the body. The day starts with pooja followed by yoga for body. Thereafter the tasty organic breakfast.

Break of 1-2 hr is given and then the time for massages.

Again it's time for yoga but for mind called nidra yoga.

People interested can later attend kairali sessions which is a form of martial art.

Healthy lunch and rest. Evenings are for pooja/ yoga again. Otherwise one can just go for a walk in the wild or enjoy the time at river side.

Only those who are interested in having peace and solitude should go at this place. You will find travellers from all over the world. Talk, discuss and learn from each other's experience.
