We focus on an Ayurvedic approach to bringing individuals into balance with their true nature, using various massage techniques, herbs, diet, and yoga.
According to Ayurveda, we are born perfect. Lifestyles, influences, relationships, and habits are incompatable with one's constitution that take us out of that perfection.
Here at Lakshmi's Garden we inundate you with nature and health. Situated on nine mountain-side acres, we are a relaxing 5 minute walk from the pristine, flowing Williams River. There you can follow a rail trail on a quiet loop of Pixley Hill or on to Housatonic. Unending trails surround Lakshmi's Garden, taking you in virtually any direction.
Since each individual is unique in every moment, we can tailor-make your visit to fit your current needs. Choose a package that inspires you, or allow us to design one with time and space to choose your own relaxing activities.
We also offer private/semi-private trainings, where each individual gets the personal attention they need to master the art of Thai massage and Ayurvedic therapies. If mastering is not your intention, and you'd prefer to come in with a partner and learn ways to address each others unique body-type, we could design simple flows for you to both learn and bring home.
In accordance with Ayurvedic principles we try to attune to the cycles of nature by respecting and honoring the environment, having as little impact on the earth as possible. We do that by composting, recycling, and reusing. We can run one vehicle on used vegetable oil and the other on electricity. We also buy "green power" from our utility company and solar energy is in future plans for the center as we grow and develop.
