Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest holistic, or whole body, healing systems. It is said to have developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. Ayurveda is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body and spirit.

According to Banyan Botanicals which provides a Sanskrit glossary, the word ayurveda means “the sacred knowledge of life” and is derived from the root words ayuh, meaning “life” or “longevity”, and veda, meaning “science” or “sacred knowledge”.

Cost: $599. It’s Yoga! Studio is located at 120 Halton Rd., Ste. One, Greenville. For more information on the retreat, contact Kristin Barton at 864-354-2882 or visit for reservations.
