16 Days Ayurveda and Yoga
Only one hour drive away from Shimla- the capital of the mountain state Himachal Pradesh lies the beautiful small mountain village Tata Pani right at the banks of the Satlej Dam.
Tata Pani means Hot water and is famous for it’s Natural Hot Sulphur Spring gushing out of the earth at a different temperature.
Since the ancient time people know the miraculous/therapeutic property of this water and come from all over to take a dip into the Sulphur springs: this water naturally provides relief from joint pains, fatigue, stress and skin disease.
It’s also a famous pilgrimage centre for Hindus; the devout consider the month of Magha (January-February) auspicious for a holy dip: it’s believed that by doing so, one can clean itself of one’s sins.
At that beautiful spot, our Ayurveda Health Care Center is located. Right above the natural hot spring, at the banks of the mighty Satluj and next to a Shiva temple, that place burst from Energy.
The Ayurveda Health Care Center is a well maintained small resort with nice rooms with balconies, two big sun flooded terraces, a Yoga Hall, a full equipped Ayurveda Area and of course a bathing area with one public Hot Sulfur Water Pool and two smaller private pools.

Ayurveda is the science, which uses the inherent principles of nature, to eliminate the diseases and protect the health of a person by keeping the individual’s body, mind and spirit in perfect equilibrium with nature.
The aim of this system is to prevent illness, heal the sick and preserve life. This can be summed up as follows:
- To ELIMINATE diseases and dysfunctions of the body (“Aturasya vikara prashamanamcha”)
- To PROTECT health and prolong life (“Swasthyas swasthya rakshanam”)
Ayurvedic manuscripts teach us about the life extension therapies that would transform and rejuvenate every cell in the body to youthful and vital. In this state of relaxation, it is possible to cleanse toxins from tissues as well as to release deeply held emotional tensions while balancing the “Doshas”.
Each patient’s treatment plan is chosen after a full clinical evaluation of his or her physical constitution, health concerns and goals. Our Vaidyas (Ayurvedic Doctors) will then develop a program that suits the unique needs of the individual.
Panchakarma (literally meaning “five actions”) is the word for the five different procedures used in Ayurveda which are believed to purify the body. It is a purifying therapy to enhance the metabolic process through food and herbal medicines. It is used in deep rooted chronic disease as well as seasonal imbalance of tri-Doshas. As the wastes are eliminated from the body the person becomes healthy. In order to stay healthy and fit one should carry out Panchakarma methods as a way of cleansing and preserving the body.
We understand that Panchakarma is a complex system and the best results are achieved by the body through Panchakarma (Pre Procedures, Karma and Post Procedures). As a result, this perfect process can take more time but is more effective. At Greens, the guidance of experienced doctors and the healing touch of skilled Panchakarma Therapists work together to cure and prevent disease as well as rejuvenate the body. We practice the so called holistic approach with a scientific outlook from this time-tested system of medicine.

Neuro therapy is an alternative form of medicine. The basic idea behind therapy is to place glass cups or silicone cups on the patient’s skin to create a vacuum, so the blood is drawn to the surface of the skin in specific parts of the body that need healing. Neuro therapy promotes blood flow and increases blood circulation to muscles and tissue, supplies oxygen to cells, loosens knots, and can release and drain excess fluids and toxins.
