Ayurvedic services at Beloved Yoga – Reston
Services offered by Ileana Gonzalez
Ayurveda is a wholistic approach to wellbeing; its origins can be traced back to 5,000 years, and is the “sister” philosophy to yoga. By incorporating daily routines and habits in our day to day, ayurveda was designed to keep our mind and body cleansed, rejuvenated, and balanced. It teaches us to know ourselves, and to use the nature within us to transform our life. Both yoga and ayurveda serve as preventive therapies of dis-ease; in addition, both are completely safe and free of second-hand effects. Ayurveda goes beyond physical wellbeing; it also looks to improve the mental and spiritual condition of each individual. By slowly introducing lifestyle changes in our day to day habits, we can transform our body, mind, and soul.
The following services are available at Beloved by appointment only:
Abhyanga: Full-body oil application, designed for DEEP relaxation using long, soft strokes. You will feel serene and settled—the kind of bliss that you get with regular meditation. It enhances circulation throughout the body, improves digestion and reactivates energy. Toxins in the skin are also released, leaving you with clear healthy skin. Treatment is followed by steam +nasya karma (medicated nasal oil) dosha – appropriate oil (tridoshic balancing, relaxing vata, cooling pitta, stimulating kapha oil) Prenatal Abhyanga is also available!
Abhyanga Fees: $90
Shirodhara: A steady, rhythmic pouring of oil on the forehead. This treatment induces a deeply relaxing and blissful state of consciousness which can help relieve pain, eliminate anxiety and fear, cure migraines and headaches, and even stop hair loss and strengthen hair growth. Treatment is followed by nasya karma
Shirodhara Fees: $125 1st session, $110 following 2 sessions. $600 voucher 5 sessions
Panchakarma, an ancient formula for cleansing: Your lifestyle, including diet, pollution, emotional stress and sleep patterns, contribute to accumulation of toxins in our organism (“ama” in Sanskrit). Over time, these toxins can become the root cause of dis-ease and imbalance, as the ama deposits in different parts of our body. Panchakarma offers a systematic treatment for removing and flushing toxins and impurities from every cell of the body, using the same mechanisms of elimination that the body naturally employs – the sweat glands, lymphatic system, blood vessels, G.I. tract.
Panchakarma, “the five actions” helps to remove these impurities along with stress, fatigue and environmental toxins, stimulating the body’s own natural rejuvenation and healing abilities, and averting or reversing the development of disease and ageing. It is a powerful tool for DETOX AND REJUVENATION which includes techniques designed for removing deep-rooted physical, emotional and psychological stress from the organism, and restoring balance to the body, mind, and soul.
