A word from the Founder

A word from the founder, Claude Chouinard

Claude Chouinard is the co-founder of Oneworld Ayurveda, providing Panchakarma cleanse retreats in Ubud, Bali.

While experiencing a two-week Panchakarma during the New Year of 2015, my dream to develop an Ayurvedic Centre in Bali was born. The results of my Panchakarma detox were so profound that I felt inspired to create an authentic Ayurvedic retreat on the beautiful island of Bali, my home for over twenty years.

For me, this project is an extension of Oneworld Retreats. Anyone who has experienced a Oneworld retreat will understand the level of service, attention to detail and the professionalism we are capable of offering. And Oneworld Ayurveda goes one step deeper into healing and detox, giving us empowering ways to deal with health and wellbeing.

With only twelve rooms at our new retreat destination, the energy is similar – authentic, down-to-earth and high-quality. The site where we have chosen to develop this project is located approximately twenty minutes from Ubud, away from its hustle and bustle and is surrounded by green rice fields and a quaint village of about 200 inhabitants.

A dream becomes a reality when put into action and I am in awe with the synchronicity that has unfolded during this journey. Everything fell into place as if it were meant to be. I thrive by the magic that believing in something can lead to reality. I must also share that this has been my life’s most amazing challenge, a new world to explore.

I am so grateful for the many people who have travelled along the path of Oneworld Ayurveda with me. As a team, we have developed an experience that will help people sift through and detox what is no longer needed in their body and mind, bringing balance into their lives– this is the purpose of Ayurveda.
