Perfect Health takes place each week at the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, located on the grounds of the world-famous La Costa Resort & Spa.
Class size is limited in this event to insure the most personal experience.
What is the Perfect Health program?
Perfect Health is a week-long healing process offered each week at the Chopra Center. Deepak Chopra, M.D., and David Simon, M.D., created the Perfect Health program to help you experience relief from your physical pain and the emotional turbulence that often accompanies it.
The Perfect Health program is based on the principles presented in Dr. Chopra’s best-selling book Perfect Health, a practical guide to mind-body healing and the practices of ayurveda – the 5,000-year-old medical system that originated in India.
Each day at Perfect Health, you will experience a customized ayurvedic massage treatment in the loving hands of our Healing Arts Masters, as well as classes in Primordial Sound Meditation, ayurveda, stress management, and other mind-body healing practices. The day begins and ends with group meditations and sessions in the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga.
The cornerstone of the Perfect Health program is panchakarma, a powerful ayurvedic cleansing process that helps the body release accumulated toxins and stress. You will receive daily panchakarma therapies to restore your natural state of balance and calm. Each treatment is tailored to your unique mind-body constitution, using specific essential oils and natural herbs to purify and nurture you at the deepest cellular level.
