Natural Beauty Award Goes to Holistic Essentials

Ayurveda Pura does it again! We are proud to announce that we won the best natural beauty product at the Green Parent’s Natural Beauty Awards.

The winning product was the Exfoliating Cream! As a big Thank You to all our customers we are offering a 25% Discount on all our Exfoliating Creams.

Awarded as best in class in the category Best Facial Scrub/Exfoliator, this product is 100% natural and faithful to the 5000 year-old tradition of Ayurveda, the Indian holistic science of health and wellbeing.

Blending essential oils such as Neroli, Lemon, Geranium and Lavender, the creams exfoliate dead skin cells, assist in blood circulation and bring a healthy balance and glow to your complexion.

In line with the Ayurvedic approach, the Skin-Radiance Exfoliating Cream comes in the range of four: for Vata (dry skin), Pitta (sensitive skin) and Kapha (oily skin) skin type, as well as in a Tri-doshic (all skin) version.

In Ayurveda, everything in the Universe, including you, is made up of five elements: fire, water, earth, air and space. The unique combinations of these elements form three body-mind types (Doshas): Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each of us has one or more dominant Doshas. The secret of good health and radiant beauty is to identify and balance your specific Doshas.HOLISTIC ESSENTIALS™ has comprehensive skincare ranges for each Dosha to do just that.

HOLISTIC ESSENTIALS™ is Ayurveda Pura’s range of natural Spa-quality skincare products, formulated true to the principles of Ayurveda. Drawing on years of Spa experience, the range was developed by a team of Ayurvedic and skincare experts, led by Dr Deepa Apte, to beautify you externally and enhance your inner wellbeing in a manner tailor-made just for you.


Dr Deepa’s Diary July 2013

Hello everyone! Looks like we are, after all, getting a bit lucky with some sunshine here and there. As usual Ayurveda Pura has been busy as ever.

castle_combe_manor[1]The month has been particularly busy for me too. Recently I have started to presenting workshops and talks for Aveda and Estee Lauder. The workshops and talks first took me to the beautiful Cotswold and to the beautiful Manor House in Castle Coombe. This gave me the opportunity to meet leading journalists from publications like Grazia, Cosmopolitan, Psychologies, Red etc.

I got the opportunity to meet various people from Estee Lauder. For all these opportunities I am very grateful!


A very exciting new course will be commencing in September: THE POLARITY THERAPY COURSE. This a course that Ayurveda Pura Academy is running in collaboration with the wonderful Jo Scrimshaw. Please find further details HERE. This is a 12 day long course but divided over 6 weekends of 2 days each. If you are really interested in Ayurveda then the POLARITY THERAPY course is for you. We are offering an early bird discount to anyone who books in advance.

The last few weeks also saw the first batch of Yoga Teacher Training Course students graduate. It’s hard to believe that more than year has passed since the first batch of Yoga Teacher Training Course commenced. I am immensely happy to let everyone know that Jo Scrimshaw, Vaishali Pratap, Susanna Iris Folli, Finola Brennan are now fully qualified Yoga Teachers! Well done!

The next batch of the Ayurvedic Therapist Course which begins on 8th July 2013 is fully booked and I am quite looking forward to training 10 enthusiastic souls all about Ayurveda and Ayurvedic Therapies. In case anyone is looking to do the Ayurvedic Therapist Course, the next batch commences in November. But I must let you know that the places are filling up very quickly and we take only 8-10 students per course.

For those who may be interested in Ayurvedic therapies, we have a special offer at the spa for the Kati Basti (oil therapy for lower back). When you book for the Kati Basti Therapy you get a 50% discount on Pristha Abhyanga – Ayurvedic back Massage. Please call 0208 312 8383 option 3 to find out more details.

So here is wishing all of you a hot weekend. Enjoy the sun and the heat while it lasts!

Love and Light
