From August 30 to September 4, 2022, Mr. Sudheesh VV, senior trainer and Ayurveda expert at Ananda in the Himalayas, will visit Solasta Spa at The Nautilus.

Sudheesh is passionate about Ayurveda and promoting health and wellness through holistic therapies, Ayurvedic herbs and lifestyle recommendations based on traditional Indian wisdom.
During Sudheesh’s time at The Nautilus, from August 30 to September 4, 2022, guests can discover “Ananda Moksha”, a bespoke Ayurveda based wellness experience curated by Ananda for The Nautilus. The holistic therapy is inspired by the concept of Moksha, which signifies a liberation of the senses and a release for free flow of prana or energy. This 60-minute treatment has been customised to work on different levels of the human body and consciousness to create a sense of overall physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
Ananda Moksha is a full body massage which uses traditional Ayurvedic therapeutic techniques used for thousands of years in India. The therapy applies pure essential oils of ginger, cardamom and black pepper, known for their powerful nurturing and rejuvenating properties, blended in a rich nourishing sunflower and wheat germ base oil rich in vitamins and minerals, with powerful anti-oxidant and regenerative properties.
It begins with traditional oil application with long strokes on the entire body followed by pressure points release, stimulating the musculo-skeletal system, leaving guests with increased energy and a heightened sense of vitality. This immediately eliminates sluggishness and simultaneously helps to release any discomfort or blockages, aches and pains. The therapy continues with slow release along the spine followed by abdominal circulation, ending with relaxation, toning and easing muscle tension in the shoulders, neck, head, and scalp.
The therapy works on the physical system, but its effects go deep into the recesses of the mind and emotions. The result is a feeling of complete rest, repair and rejuvenation.
While at The Nautilus, guests are also invited to experience the Ananda world of creative, healthy cuisine. Ananda’s cuisine philosophy is tailor-made to each dosha or body type, incorporating seasonal variations and local produce. As per Ayurvedic principles, each dosha – Vata (energy of movement), Pitta (energy of metabolism) and Kapha (energy of building and lubrication) – has guidelines for food groups and ingredients depending on its balance or imbalance in each individual. Ananda’s specially curated menu for The Nautilus incorporates the six fundamental food tastes of sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent and combined with the three macronutrients of protein, fat and carbohydrates, which are vital to good health.
