The science of Life

Massage ayurvedique abhyanga at Sita cultural center, PondicherryAyurveda, a very ancient Indian medicine, arouses more and more curiosity. Indeed, this holistic and natural medical practice which does not separate mind and body, fully integrates the lifestyle as part of the treatment and emphasizes on the preventive aspect as well as the curative one. It's perfect for those who want to know and listen to their body in order to treat it.

Several programs are available for you, depending on the time you can spend with us:


Half-day workshop to discover Ayurveda

We will here introduce the basics of Ayurvedic medicine (the five elements, three doshas ,...), its history and its myths. We will explain the different types of treatments and how to integrate Ayurvedic principles into your everyday life through nutrition, physical activity, etc.

This Initiation is held on demand for 3 hours workshop (minimum 2 persons).

The Abhyanga Ayurvedic Massage Course

Ayurvedic massage workshop at Sita cultural centreThis course lasts one week after which you'll be able to practice a complete oil body massage. A first theoretical part will introduce you to Ayurveda as a whole; then you'll learn how to practice the massage with strokes as dynamic as soft and comforting. The aim is to relax, remove toxins from tissues and organs in order to have more efficiency for the next steps of a usual Ayurvedic treatment.

This wrapping massage relieves the tensions and accumulated stress, and raises awareness of the whole body. It is a moment of pure pleasure.

Basic Abhyanga massage course lasts 24h (6 classes of 4h each at least 10 days).
We organize the class schedule for each session depending on participants' free time and stay in the city. However, we do try to leave at least one free day between each class so the student gets time to practice and so, we can correct individually depending on everyone own needs.


Classes start for a minimum of 2 participants.
