AUM Kurzentrum für Ayurveda und Naturheilverfahren
As one of the first ayurveda centers in Europe, the AUM Health Resort has been offering traditional ayurveda treatments in harmonic, peaceful atmosphere at fair pricing since the early nineties under the supervision of natural health professional and psychotherapist/psychologist Reinhard Ravidas Korn.
Morning yoga practice and evening music therapy with meditation are as firmly integrated into the daily routine, as are group meetings and lectures. Individual consultation is highest priority on the patient’s journey of rediscovering vitality and zest for life.
The AUM Health Resort is specialized in traditional ayurveda treatments, especially the 14-day Panchakarma purification treatment. Otherwise, it is also possible to book individual oil massages and steam baths, or a shorter trial stay.
The center presents itself as a humble facility focusing on the essence: holistic healing through a well-structured ayurvedic program.
The clinic is managed by Reinhard Ravidas Korn, a natural health professional and psychotherapist/psychologist who has completed a six-year education with Dr. Shri Balaji També at Atmasantualana Village. Mr També is a co-founder and current patron of AUM Health Resort.
Mr Korn lives in-house and is always accessible to his patients whenever he’s not on a study trip in India.
Individual care is taken seriously here as psychological facets may come up and require attention during such a treatment.
At AUM Health Resort emphasis is put on satisfying body, mind and soul with purely ayurvedic, lacto-vegetarian dishes. Ingredients are freshly picked and mostly organic. The competent German chef combines those to truly delicious meals considering any individual food allergies and intolerances. Avoidance of acid-forming foods is a focal point of the diet offered here, as it is a typical characteristic of modern-day diseases.
Complementing the treatments is the morning breathing and yoga practice at 07:30AM before breakfast held in the beautifully bright in-house yoga room.
Exercises are easy to follow hence making the sessions suitable for everyone.
At 07:00PM in the evening, it is time to meet for a healing music session followed by meditation, before dinner.
As part of Dr. Shri Balaji També’s spiritual approach it is recommended to patients to participate in the yoga and meditation sessions. Attendance may be skipped due to health concerns or during menstruation.
The homemade ayurvedic products - such as the herb-enriched ghee based on respective ayurvedic constitution - that are available here are a true rarity and usually only available in India.
Information-packed (informative) and vividly illustrated lectures on ayurveda are awaiting the patient every other day and are designed in a casual Q&A style.
Further recommended should be the cooking course that comes with great advice on how to prepare ayurvedic meals at home. Otherwise, visitors may sit down, read and hang out in the sociable boutique, or go hiking, or rent a bicycle in order to explore the idyllic and relaxing surrounding landscape.
The 17 rooms are basic and functionally furnished without TV, phone, or radio, but very clean, cozy. Most of them come with a generous garden view. There are also two new apartments, for example for visiting families.
Two-week panchakarma treatments including food and accommodation start at the moderate price of 2100 Euro.
The design and renovation of the health center has been inspired by ‘Vastu’, a method to optimize the energetic field similar to the Chinese Feng Shui.
Another jewel of the center is the beautifully landscaped garden, inviting the visitor for walks and relaxation.
WLAN is now available at the center.
