We show you five reasons to plan your next Monsoon Ayurveda holiday - in spite of rain - during the monsoon season (June - October)!
1. Healing powers of the rain
Refreshing rain showers between the months of June and September make the ayurvedic medicinal herbs thrive particularly well. Even ancient writings of Indian healing teach that the monsoon season offers the best conditions for classical monsoon ayurveda treatments, since herbs used can have their full healing power.
2. Fresh air for the skin
The rain during the monsoon season brings with it a damp and dust-free air. This causes an opening of the pores and thus makes the skin more susceptible to the cleansing effect of ayurvedic remedies. Rejuvenating Ayurvedic treatments are particularly widespread in Kerala in the south-west of India and offer particularly effective treatments during the rainy season.
3. Pleasant temperatures for all doshas
During the months between October and May, the temperatures rise to 35 degrees, the climate is much more pleasant during the monsoon season. The body therefore takes less time to adapt to the weather conditions and can concentrate fully on the ayurvedic cure. The temperatures between 27 and 30 degrees are suitable for every constitutional (dosha) type.
4. Peaceful atmosphere
For most holidaymakers, tropical destinations such as Sri Lanka and South India offer the ideal refuge from rain and cold. Hardly anyone is going to an Ayurveda stay leave outside the main season. The monsoon season is therefore ideal to escape tourist flows and to enjoy an undisturbed ayurvedic stay. Positive side effect: less demand, lower prices.
5. Nature in its full bloom
The rain is not only beneficial to herbs, skin and climate. Whoever wants to experience Sri Lanka's and South India's natural beauty in its full splendor comes from June to September. Because then, not only monsoons, but above all, flowering is called for. Especially in the interior of Sri Lanka, as in the jewel city Ratnapura, the breathtaking plant diversity in the Uda Walawe National Park can be admired.
