Vana is a retreat that explores each aspect of wellbeing: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Its destiny is to be a place of true wellbeing. Bringing together ayurveda, sowa rigpa, yoga, natural therapies, spa, fitness and aqua, the retreat provides many paths to start the journey towards greater personal wellbeing.
At Vana, each guest is seen as an individual entity and an opportunity to serve and enhance wellbeing, through wellness.
