Get Back To Your Rhythm with Ayurveda at Atlantis by Giardino
It’s that time of the year to indulge in festive treats, with the promise of focusing on personal health from the beginning of the new year. Atlantis by Giardino, Zurich provides the ideal solution to start 2019 with a detox and adopt a new fitness regime. The urban retreat has created a therapeutic and non-medical health programme, Ayurveda by Giardino, to help guests achieve holistic well-being. This approach is fun and simple so that it can be easily integrated into a traveller’s routine once he/she is back home after a relaxing holiday. Ayurvedic cures eliminate metabolic toxins, stimulate the body’s self-healing powers and rejuvenate the tissue. Some of the issues that can be addressed include obesity, allergies, intolerances, chronic pain, erratic sleeping habits and fatigue.
Atlantis by Giardino offers eight cures of Ayurveda that can last from three to 21 days, depending on the objective of the guest. The Ayurveda experts have developed the below programmes, incorporating nutrition that is appropriate for the individual’s body type, physical activity and mindful relaxation. All treatments will be offered at the hotel’s signature dipiù Spa.
This is the foundation for all guests choosing an Ayurveda programme. The Ayurveda specialist uses your medical history and pulse diagnosis to gain information about disharmonies and also determine your personal constitution (dosha). Based on this analysis, a customised plan is put together including nutrition, daily yoga, pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. Guests also receive access to the pool, sauna and fitness area. Starting at CHF 890 for three days, excluding room rate.

Participants will also be given a private lesson in meditation and pranayama. Starting at CHF 1,750 for six days, including Ayurvedic full board plus room price.
The Ayurvedic Detox programme is based on the principle that the body contains an acid-base balance that can be disrupted by stress, an inappropriate diet and an unhealthy lifestyle. This cure is geared specifically at resolving this balance.
