I needed time away from the city and Rasayana is a gem not far from St. Petersburg. Days unfold in this cove nestled mid the agricultural landscape. The property is a delight to wander and reflects a Florida before aggressive development. Horse Creek meanders along its borders and the cabins snuggled between massive oaks invite a settling of body and soul. So also do the thoughtful and expert ministrations of De'nesh whose ayurvedic training assures your body experiences restoration and health.
Before Covid, I used to go to an Ayurvedic retreat in Bali and was looking for something local that provided a similar experience. I was amazed to have found Rasayana Cove right here in FL. The property is so peaceful that makes it easy to unplug. Julia was very helpful coordinating my booking within a short notice. D’nesh was an incredible host! He provided Ayurvedic massages and fresh meals that I so needed. He helped me get back into my meditation practice and showed me how to make ghee. I left recharged, reconnected with myself and with clarity. I can’t wait to go back.
“I am presently completing a 2 week Panchakarma and Meditation retreat in this very beautiful, tranquil place. From the time I arrived, I felt gently guided, supported, held, seen and nurtured by my wonderful hosts, Julia and Dinesh. My experience has been better than I ever could have imagined. I will return home tomorrow feeling fully nourished physically, mentally and emotionally. (Food was amazing!).Filled with gratitude, I highly recommend giving yourself this precious gift!”
I loved the solitude and felt wonderful from the treatments and great healthy cooking! Lost a total of 6 lbs and skin was glowing. The property is beautiful and extremely soothing to the soul. Would return.
May main goal was to improve my gut and I am pleased that I have made a very good progress. Main factors behind this progress; - food. Julia’s food is very good and she cooked to satisfy my vata - in addition, she gave me very good cooking lessons to address my vata praktiti which I plan to implement when I go home - another important aspect is the treatments - abhyanga, marma therapy and matra basti. All three therapies have helped me a lot. - the atmosphere is very homely. Julia and Dinesh have treated me as a part of their family. Both are very knowledgeable and caring persons. That has contributed to my wellness. - living in nature is another aspect that has helped me. My morning walks and the nights when the moon was shining. The moon walks with Julia and Dinesh enhanced my mood a great deal and contributed to my wellness. - Also regular meditation has helped me a lot and I plan to continue this at home. I think both Julia and Dinesh for this very warm treatment at Rasayana Cove. Ramji Patel…
