Sarachandran, Penang, Malaysia stayed for 14 days

LApprehension........ !Anxiety.........! Travel stress.......!This was my state of mind upon disembarking at Udupi on Saturday 3rd Aug 2013 at 9am after gruel some overnight sleeper bus/road journey from Bangalore the previous night. Howewer the balming effect was immediate upon stepping down from the bus at Udupi.There to greet me was the reassuring presence of Dr Sreedhar Rao and his assistant-both equally mild mannered and thoughtful about all details. The mornings of both my 2 weeks at the hermitage was filled with discussions demonstrations and guided practice of yoga and pranayamas conducted by Dr Sreedhar Rao personally Ayurvedic massages and related treatments as prescribed by were carried out both mornings and afternoons. Further sanctuary the well trained and courteous massage therapist was a hand.Treatment included diet eating healthy food in moderation! Evenings were filled with outings to scenic spots and local points of interest. I found the hermitage at its ambience more like a home.Even my onward travel arrangements were organised by the sanctuary.The two weeks were a period of both physical and spiritual rejuvenation. SEE YOU AGAIN NEXT YEAR.......!.
