"I LOVED the skincare classes with Lakshmi and Karen. The face masks we made were my absolute favorite beauty recipes. They teach in such a heartfelt way." 

- Ashley P., Student

1-Day Retreat Features


Everything you’ll learn comes from Vedika founder Acharya Shunya’s bestselling book Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom, which you will receive a complimentary copy of as part of the retreat day. Return to what you’ll learn to remember exactly how to apply it anytime.


Enjoy a freshly cooked Ayurvedic lunch, as well as chai and Ayurvedic snacks cooked on site for in-person students during your one-day retreat.


Enjoy a deeply rejuvenating day of hands-on sessions that will introduce you to your newest beauty enhancing friends in your kitchen and garden. In Ayurveda, we don’t put anything onto our skin that we wouldn’t consume internally. You’ll therefore have the unique opportunity to see, smell, touch, and taste each beauty recipe you make. You’ll also experience inspiring meditations to help you connect to your spirit ~ the ultimate source of beauty in us all.
