Sri Sri Ayurveda

Sri Sri Ayurveda was founded by H. H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. He created a unique method to present the traditional Ayurvedic knowledge in such a way that it is accessible for all and suitable for our western life-styles.

In our Ayurvedic Center Bangalore we offer Ayurvedic consultations and traditional Panchakarma treatments. We also compose and produce marvellous Ayurvedic herbal cosmetics with nourishing and natural ingredients

The most outstanding thing about Sri Sri Ayurveda  is that it combines Ayurveda with yoga, meditation,  profound knowledge and amazingly effective breathing techniques; greatly enhancing the benefits of the traditional therapies making them last a lot longer

Treatments we offer

...Are mainly cleansing therapies which help you to come back into a balanced and healthy state of being Panchakarma is the health anchor of Ayurveda. Pancha means five and Karma means action; these are five purification therapies designed to assist the body in the internal cleansing process through the elimination of toxins, wastes and other excesses in order to bring the supportive forces of  life, the Tri doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha), into balance

Panchakarma Therapies are most effective in combination with Art of Living breathing programs. A cure should start with a private, caring consultation to have the base  for the following treatments.

Naadi Pareeksha, an ancient diagnostic method determining Prakruti (constitution/body type), Dosha (present imbalance in body-mind), physical health, mental health, emotional state, diseases and prognosis.

With your pulse diagnosis you get the opportunity to be informed about disturbances and future disease in your body often before you are even aware of them; and you can then treat them immediately by just making some small adjustments to your lifestyle instead of undergoing heavy and painful therapy.

We will provide you with a caring private consultation to establish your constitutional type and guidelines as to the best food and lifestyle for your personal body type. As well as lots of important hints for better living.


The concept of Ayurvedic oil massage is entirely different from that of the other classical massage techniques, as it balances the Tri doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) and releases the stored up stress from the mind and body.

Today's life is making the Vata (the principle of space and air) so high that sleep gets disturbed, digestion becomes a problem, gas forms in the stomach, We start to feel more stress in our daily life, our skin becomes dry and tension occurs in the nervous system.

With this Ayurvedic oil massage, using specific movements, the nervous system will relax and be soothed. This massage reduces Vata, rejuvenates the skin, tones the muscles, eliminates impurities and promotes youthfulness. Abhyanga is also part of the Panchakarma treatments. A basic Ayurvedic treatment, a must for you!


It is a wonderful relaxation process  in which the scalp and forehead receive a gentle and caressing massage by a thin stream of lukewarm oil; promoting a very deep relaxation.

It gives rise to a very pleasant and indescribable sense of well being, which has been likened to the Bliss State of the womb.

Very effective generally after operations and for treating high blood pressure, ear noises and injuries in the head. Relaxing for the whole body.


An old technique of healing in which simple touch or light massage on the vital points of the body, the Marma points, are used to balance the life force (prana).

There are 107 main energy points on the surface of the body. Each relates to a different organ or tissue. By gently pressing or massaging these sites prana is stimulated, clearing stress and blocks in the body. The unique aspect of this amazing therapy is that it transcends the physical and mental levels rectifying defective energy channels in a subtle way.

Marma supports the healing process of many diseases including those of the heart, gallbladder and pancreas. It can also be used to just get a peaceful mind. You will feel loved during the this Ayurvedic treatment.Just receive this hidden gift!


Svedana is the therapeutic application of heat so that the pores and channels of the body open. By applying heat to the body the ama (toxins) can be released easily.

Sweating has been found to be very effective for many organic problems from the common cold to cancer. Svedana is particularly effective when done after Abhyanga.It is purifying and softens the body

Pinda Svedana

Administration of medicated oil or decoctions into the rectum to pacify or expel the vitiated Doshas is known as Vastikarma; here we just call it Basti.

A warm enema with oil, water or tea eliminates toxins from the body by bringing them back into the digestive system. Basti is part of Panchakarma cleansing therapy. Helpful for reducing migraine, painful menstruations, sleeplessness and constipation.

Karna Purana

Ear treatment - We use either a ghee preparation  (clearified butter) or a mixture of herbal oil  and give this after a soothing  massage into your ears. Effective treatment for reducing Vata, jaw tension, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and congestion


The nose is the entrance to the brain. Nasya involves the administration of medicated oils  through the nasal channels. By bringing substances into the nose, the sinus and head are cleared, increasing alertness.
