Both focus on your holistic health, called Swastha, including your physical, mental and spiritual health, with yoga focusing more on the well-being of the mind and Ayurveda on your physical body.

Just an hour’s drive from Shimla – the capital of the mountain state of Himachal Pradesh – lies the beautiful little mountain village Tata Pani right on the banks of the Satluj Dam.
Tata Pani means “hot water” and is famous for its natural hot sulfur spring, which bubbles out of the earth at different temperatures.
Since ancient times, people have known the miraculous therapeutic properties of this water and come from everywhere to take a dip in the sulfur springs: this water provides natural relief for joint pain, fatigue, stress and skin diseases.
It is also a famous pilgrim center for Hindus; the pious consider the month of Magha (January-February) to be promising for a holy bath: one believes that one can cleanse one’s sins by doing so.
In this beautiful place is our Ayurveda Health Center. Directly above the natural hot springs, on the banks of the mighty Satluj and next to a Shiva temple, this place is full of energy.
The Ayurveda Health Care Center is a well-kept little pilgrim’s place with beautiful rooms with balconies, two large sun-drenched terraces, a yoga hall, a fully equipped Ayurvedic area with an Ayurveda doctor and Ayurveda therapists and, of course, a bathing area with a public sulfur hot water pool and two smaller private pools.
The trained kitchen team cooks fresh, vegetarian food three times a day to match your Ayurvedic constitution.
Basically, this Ayurveda Yoga Teacher Training Course is not only a training program, but also a relaxing retreat in the wonderful atmosphere of the Indian Himalayas.

Benefits of sulphur water
The scientific study recognized the therapeutic value of hot sulfur water and considered it beneficial for skin problems, muscle pain, joint pain, blood circulation and breathing problems.

Our sulfur-containing water is similar to several European thermal waters.
