Inspired by the ancient healing culture of South Asia with a holistic blend of Environmental practices, Yoga, Ayurveda, Spirituality, Naturopathy, Modern diagnostics and Balanced diet; the eco wellness retreat invokes peace and inspires one to find their ‘Dharana’ – a collection or concentration of the mind or the act of holding, keeping back (in remembrance), firmness, steadfastness or certainty. ‘Dharana’ is related to the verbal root dhri to hold, carry, maintain, resolve. Embracing these ideologies, the eco wellness retreat offers the Dharana Life Science Program.
‘Dharana way of life’ integrates the most effective holistic treatments synchronised with state-of-the-art technology placed in a pristine reflective environment. Dharana by definition, cures the inner conflicts we so commonly experience. When you’re completely focused, you can’t be of two minds about something.

A customised consultation under the able guidance of Dr. Arun Pillai curating an individualistic approach especially for you ranging from a three day schedule to twenty seven day program. The itinerary encompasses a plethora of Dharana tradition of – Acupressure – Acupuncture – Reiki – Pranic Healing – Ayurveda – Yoga – Chakra Cleansing – Shamanism – Meditation – Naturopathy – Hydro Therapy – Ozone Therapy – Fire Healing – Music – Dance to – Body Work. Encapsulated from two core aspects of Panchkarma and Minbos (Mind-Body -Soul); the Dharana Life Science Program focuses on fitness through wellness activities and cognitive stimulation in a sustainable environment, mindfulness through meditation and nourishment through sustainability. Your healing journey of Dharana commences when you commit to being a part of this glorious part of nature.
Dr. Arun Pillai, Director of Wellness says, “We focus on the five core elements (earth, fire, water, air, and sky) to design the Dharana program. The program starts with a full body composition analysis to determine the prakruti and identify the doshas of our guests. We aim to make Dharana as a way of life and not just a program so that all our guests can sustain a healthy lifestyle and lead the ideal wellness path within and outside the retreat”
This holistic approach of the Dharana program is prominently distinguished through the dietary plan offered at the wellness restaurant- The Green Table. The curated menus imbibe the five elements of Ayurveda (Water, Air, Fire, Ether and Wind) with special emphasis on organic ingredients. Thoughtfully designed by the Executive Chef Shubhendu Kadam, the menu introduces the forest-to-table concept with all ingredients sourced from the Shillim forest. The Chef’s commitment to using organic, locally-sourced and sustainably grown ingredients of the highest quality is apparent in every dish served from the Ayurveda Thali to the à la carte selection.
