The Logic behind the course

  • You book your vacation with your preferred number of weeks. It includes Ayurvedic treatments (consultation by doctor, daily treatments according to your diagnosis, final consultation).
  • The 5 day course is perfectly integrated in your Ayurveda treatment program. Best is to start after one week of relaxation and Ayurveda treatments. During your course enjoy half a day of treatments and rest. And use the other half of the day to experience your creativity - either independently or intensively coached by your teacher - and at the same time explore the beautiful surroundings of Mangrove Escapes.
  • For your project you can use every technical equipment you want - from smartphone to professional camera. Important is not technical perfection, but the personal expression and the exploration of your own creativity.
