Three Pillars of Naad
India is the birthplace of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy and recognised globally as the cradle of healing and wellness. Holistic living is a part of life here and culturally imbibed into the soul of the country and its people.
At Naad, every one of our experiences has been created around these ancient ethos and overseen by our resident physicians and experts.
Based on the principles of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, the property features a bouquet of experiences that begin at 3 nights and go up to 28 nights and include a combination of both experiential (Detox, Destress, etc) and medical packages (Diabetes Management, PCOS management, Spine Care, Sports Injury Management, etc).
Each experience is preceded by a one-on-one consultation with a resident Ayurvedic or Naturopathic physician, basis which an itinerary is customised which includes a combination of therapies, yoga, kriyas and nutrition. The objective is to heal the body, mind and spirit from within, addressing the root cause of any imbalance, rather than offering a superficial short-term solution.
Ayurveda: Translating to ‘the science of life’, Ayurveda recognizes human beings and nature to be one. With wisdom that dates back to more than 5,000 years, it describes movement, transformation and structure as the three fundamental energies that govern our inner and outer environment. Ayurveda believes that our bodies constitute the balance of the five elements and our primary forces are Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Earth).
Yoga: Believed to have originated during the pre-Vedic era in India, yoga is a set of physical, mental and spiritual practices that heal the body, mind and soul. With several schools of yoga taught and practiced in India, it has been the medium to holistic wellbeing for centuries.
Naturopathy: While it has been recognised as a medical discipline with roots in 19th century Europe, many of Naturopathy’s governing principles have also found mention in India’s ancient Vedic texts. Its core belief is that the body possesses vital energies that are capable of healing from within and natural cures, diet regulation and exercise are its tools of transformation.
Like Ayurveda, Naturopathy also believes that the human body is but a balance of the five great elements of nature. Herbal massages, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, nutritional counselling and cleansing routines all form part of Naturopathic treatments.

The Reflexology Track at Naad embodies the principles of earthing (walking barefoot on a natural surface) the concept of reflexology. The objective of reflexology is to stimulate the different nerve endings or reflexes that are linked to the body’s internal organs. Not only does reflexology soothe tired feet, but it also helps your organs heal from within. Our Reflexology Track , which has been inspired by the yin and yang symbol features soft, smooth pebbles of different sizes. These pebbles act as stimulants and massage the feet gently, helping one release stress and increase focus.
India’s ancient medical and health sciences – Ayurveda, Naturopathy and Yoga firmly believe that the path to holistic wellbeing first begins from within. Each therapy, treatment and asana work to heal internally and to bring balance to the body, mind and spirit.

Himalayan Salt Cave (10-15 minutes)
Naad has recreated the microclimate of salt caves and our Himalayan Salt Caves are based on the principle that when salt is heated, it becomes drier and kinetically more active.
When these micro particles of super dry salt are inhaled into the respiratory system, they absorb and remove allergens, toxins and foreign substances in the lungs and the respiratory tract.
Additionally, since dry salt is highly absorbent, the micro particles can also permeate the epidermis and help balance the skin’s pH and induce the reparative and regenerative process in the skin, thereby stimulating cell growth and microcirculation.
