Double Trouble (cervical and lumbar pain)Do you have a nagging crick in the neck? Or a niggling ache in your back? Or a general feeling of constant fatigue? It could be the result of the double trouble – Cervical spondylosis or lumbar spondylosis. The first is severe neck pain resulting from wear and tear of vertebrae and discs in the neck. Affecting the 30-plus group, it becomes more common with age. Pain is felt at the back of the neck and may radiate to shoulder, back or even to the arm, and may be mistaken for a heart attack. There may also be vertigo or a reeling sensation. The second is a backache that spreads to the lower limb from the buttocks with numbness at the toes or other areas. Depending on the nerve root, you need a thorough therapy session that treats – well, the spine of the problem.
Our ideal package is for 10 days. However, we can customize treatment for you keeping in mind your busy schedule and your need.
Joint Venture (arthritis)Do you hold your knees when you’ve just taken a flight of stairs? Feel nagging pain in your knees first thing every morning. It could be arthritis - inflammation of the joints resulting in pain and stiffness with or without swelling. The condition may affect only one or several joints throughout the body. There are many possible causes of arthritis, including age-related wear and tear, obesity, infections, autoimmune conditions, injuries and others. For those types of arthritis that respond to treatment, Leojuventa has programs not only to prevent worsening of the condition but also to provide relief through a multi-pronged approach.Book a consultation with the doctor for the tailored program to suit you!Book an appointment with the doctor for a consultation and evaluation!

Yoga and Meditation
Office yoga (60 minutes)Working in an office or at a computer for prolonged periods of time can put strain on the neck, shoulder and back muscles which in turn can lead to tension and stiffness. This tension can cause headaches, as well as back, neck and shoulder pain. If left unattended, it could also impact your ability to function effectively at work and your overall quality of life. Simple techniques such as Office Yoga may help alleviate the pain and other symptoms by releasing tension and increasing muscle strength and flexibility.
Yoga for Athletes (60 minutes)It is a new way to get in your resistance. You might be surprised to find that yoga makes a perfect companion for athletes of all sports as well as the fitness enthusiasts. Yoga can help in developing better breathing technique while it improves your balance, flexibility, core strength; reduce soft tissue injuries, increase blood flow and endurance.
Therapeutic yoga (60 minutes)Therapeutic Yoga focuses on working with mental and physical conditions. It utilizes yogic techniques including posture, breath work, meditation and pose variations created for a unique need and/or individual. Therapeutic Yoga is particularly helpful for recovering from, or living with, injury or illness and stress. Sessions are modified sequences specifically fit to the needs of the individual. Therapeutic Yoga is highly adaptable to accommodate the needs of different conditions and physical abilities. It can be used to treat someone in a wheelchair with adapted poses, as well as active teens with injuries. Therapeutic Yoga is a blend of supported restorative poses and mind and movements of breath work, meditation and relaxation to relieve the body from the fight-or-flight response caused by physical, emotional or physiological trauma and modern life stress.
Hatha yoga (60 minutes)Hatha as defined describes any of the practices, so a Hatha class will be slow-paced and geared for beginners as it is an easy-to-learn basic form of yoga. Hatha Yoga is the foundation of all Yoga styles. It incorporates Asanas (postures), Pranayama (regulated breathing), meditation (Dharana & Dhyana) and kundalini (Laya Yoga) into a complete system that can be used to achieve enlightenment or self-realization.
Restorative yoga (45 minutes)Looking to wind down after a long day of work? Or perhaps you want to quiet your mind? Restorative yoga might be the answer as it's focused on relaxation. Looking for some deep relaxation at the end of a hectic workday?
Restorative yoga is typically practiced with props, and involves only a handful of restorative poses you'll hold for extended periods of time to allow your body to open through passive stretching but you'll really connect with your mind and body.
Pranayama (60 - 90 minutes)Enhancement for Shirodhara
This series of guided breathing techniques improves and balances the flow of the vital life force – prana. Focusing on bhastrikas (rapid abdominal breathing) and kapalabhatti (rapid inhalation and exhalation), the session also incorporates anapana (a simple process of following the breath to calm the mind) and anuloma viloma (alternate-nostril breathing).
Sushumna (60 - 90 minutes)Enhancement for Elakkizhi
Sushumna relates to the pranic channel that runs upwards from the base of the spine. Designed specifically for those with back problems, this type of yoga comprises a sequence of simple postures to balance and stabilize the spine, relax the mind and redirect body energy to relieve persistent pain.
Kundalini (60 - 90 minutes)Enhancement for tantric rituals
An ancient form of yoga aimed at stimulating and freeing the kundalini – the untapped energy at the base of the spine – and allowing it to move upwards, awakening the seven chakras. The emphasis is on controlling the breath in conjunction with physical movements, thus exploring the effects of the prana (vital energy) on the asanas (poses).
Nada (60 - 90 minutes)Enhancement for Zaanta Nidraa
Meaning "union through sound," this ancient spiritual art and science enables us to fine tune our bodies and minds to resonate with harmony in all creations. Nada yoga includes techniques that harness the subtle vibrations of sound, asanas designed to mirror nature’s perfection, rituals to purify and redeem the past and meditation to tune us into the divine current of life around us.
Ashtanga Vinyasa (60 - 90 minutes)Enhancement for Thai massage
Meaning "flow," vinyasa yoga resembles a dance due to the smooth way the poses run together. The transition from one pose to the next is synchronized with an inhalation or exhalation. Recommended for participants who enjoy things being a little loose and unpredictable and who like to move.
Power (60 - 90 minutes)Enhancement for therapeutic massage
Recommended for practitioners who are already quite fit, enjoy exercising and want a minimal amount of chanting and meditation with their yoga. The focus is on postures that enhance strength and flexibility.
Pregnancy (60 - 90 minutes)Enhancement for pregnancy massage

Patanjali (60 - 90 minutes)Enhancement for in-depth ayurvedic programmes and immersions (3 to 28 days)
Patanjali yoga constitutes pure yoga therapy, focused on body discipline, mental control and meditation. Combining eight internal and external cleansing practices as outlined by sage Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras, this method detoxifies the body, builds strength, fortifies the nervous system and balances the subtle energy channels. Students progress through the series at their own pace and comfort in the quest for divine stability and contemplation.
Children (60 - 90 minutes)Children are naturally flexible, and yoga is the perfect exercise to maintain this trait from an early age. Children’s yoga is all about keeping things simple. In addition to learning the poses, this experience will encourage kids to explore the unfamiliar with open minds, strengthen the body-mind-spirit connection and improve awareness, coordination and stress relief.
