Ancient’s Best Ayurveda and Yoga
Ancient’s Best was first established as a business in Singapore in 1988. We now have bases in both Singapore and in Marlborough, New Zealand and we travel to other centres on a seasonal basis to offer training, treatment and workshops.
The company represents the traditions of Ayurveda and Yoga as taught by the ancients and passed down from teacher to student as a spiritual study with very practical applications to everyday life.

What is Ayurveda?
‘AYUR’ in Sanskrit means ‘Life’ or ‘Longevity’ and ‘VEDA’ means ‘Science’ or ‘Knowing’. Ayurveda can be described as ‘The Science of Life or Longevity’ or ‘The Yoga of Life’.
Each person will practice and live differently as each person has a unique body and mind. With the science of Ayurveda we learn to manage our bodies and minds as instruments given to us in this life for a specific purpose.
Massage Treatment in Ayurveda involves the application of specially prepared and warmed Dosha Pacifying herbal oils to the whole body.
Such treatment can be undertaken regularly at home as self massage, or as part of a short term standard treatment program at our clinic.
Short term treatment is undertaken typically over 4-6 weeks. Clients come once per week for a two hour massage/herbal body wash/steam treatment, and at home support this by lifestyle adjustments (food, exercise, routines, sleep etc), specially prepared herbs, yoga and meditation.
Massage can also become on ongoing and regular long term support.
Pancha Karma Therapy
Panch’ means five and ‘Karma’ means therapy or action. Pancha Karma refers to an intensive detoxification program using five actions or procedures to remove toxins from the body and mind.
Pancha Karma is a totally holistic detoxification. This is because it not only works on the physical system but it works on the mental and subtle energies as well.
Following a standard treatment program clients are prepared for Pancha Karma in the following months. We typically offer the program as a 9 day residential retreat including 7 days of intensive treatment.
