This was a first experience for me and I’m sure it won’t be my last. It’s a wonderful setting to do it in. I feel calmer at the end of my stay, which was one of my objectives. My hair has regained its shine, my yoga stretches have got longer and it’s given me renewed inspiration to put my Ayurvedic principles into action! The silence room is like a little corner of paradise, literally quiet. I will return to England with some beautiful new memories of the exceptionally willing and smiling staff, the surroundings, Claude’s long rice field walk and a new spiritual awareness.
