I can't review this as if it were some random b&b. This is a place to go if you're looking to heal your body and expand your soul. I've been to a lot of "health resorts," and some are fancier, but none is more inviting, caring, or effective than this one. I plan to return every year. On the more...

Coming from Canada this is not an easy place to get to. Two flights are needed but I would like to think the time and effort is worth the journey. A place to find you, meditation, vegan food, ayurveda education and treatments and a gentle atmosphere

This was my 4th visit to the Retreat Center and I will continue to come back each year. I do an annual Panchakarma detox but the center is very flexible and you can mix and match experiences to create everything from a little R&R to full cleansing and spiritual deepening. Each day you are surrounded by professional, supportive, wholehearted people...

We are open 7 days a week; you may reserve your personal Retreat at any time. You can come for a Traditional Panchakarma Retreat for up to 2 or 3 weeks, or come for a shorter R&R or Wellness Retreat. We are here to facilitate your journey to health and happiness through the sublime teachings of Yoga and Ayurveda. The Ayurveda Education Week offers an opportuntiy to immerse yourself in Yoga and Ayurveda in a nurturing enviroment. The Ayurveda Health Retreat (AHR) is one of the premier Retreats in Florida that offer traditional Ayurvedic medicine and Panchakarma treatments. The AHR was established by Richard A. Masla, Ayurvedic Practitioner, in 2001 and is located in the small historic town of Alachua, in north central Florida. The Retreat initially had only one treatment room and an office space. From these humble beginnings, it now encompasses three buildings: a beautiful yoga studio, a retreat center and a yoga ashram. Annually we serve hundreds of guests who visit us from all over the world. We are a group of dedicated health professionals who have created an authentic Ayurvedic retreat offering traditional Kerala Ayurvedic therapies. We have 3 Ayurvedic Practitioners, a psychologist, massage therapists, Reiki healers, and yoga & meditation teachers. Richard Masla, our Ayurvedic Practitioner, studied traditional Ayurveda under Dr. Vasant Lad, Dr. Pankaj Naram and Dr. Syama. Richard has mastered the ancient art of Kerala Ayurvedic Panchakarma and has trained all the massage therapists. We're here to accommodate you, whether you need a weekend refresher or a full 21-day retreat. We look forward to being of service! ... more   less
