71 Dec18365 Finding Modern Success in Ancient Practices Founded in 2003 by Dr. Deepa Apté, Ayurveda Pura London has grown from strength to strength through a dedication to its core ethos- simply- to provide exceptional holistic wellness treatments by trained experts. For their continued success over the last sixteen years, the spa was named ‘London Holistic Spa of the Year’ by LUXlife for 2018. We spoke with Michael Boone, Head of Business Development, to find out more about Ayurveda Pura’s many offerings. Inspired entirely on India’s ancient holistic health system of ‘Ayurveda’, Ayurveda Pura London has embraced the global wellness trend to become one of the city’s very best spas, a perfect retreat for those wanting to relax and escape the urban cityscape for a moment, or two. To start the interview, Michael offers more insight into Ayurveda Pura’s background and services. “Based in London, we provide Ayurvedic products and Ayurvedic training worldwide to the highest Western standards of purity and quality, whilst staying true to the principles of Ayurveda. Ayurveda Pura is founded on an ancient holistic health system of India, which provides for excellent health, both physical and mental, by creating harmony between a person's body and nature. Starting with a small range of herbal teas developed in Dr Deepa Apté's kitchen, the business has grown organically to over 100 holistic wellbeing products. Our spa in North Greenwich London provides authentic Ayurvedic Spa Treatments. We also have a beautiful vegetarian cafe at the same location. “We are grateful that our passion for delivering the highest quality products and services to our loyal customers worldwide has been recognised by our winning numerous awards.” Ultimately, Ayurveda Pura finds success in the strength of its founding principles, guided through challenges and opportunities alike in the knowledge that their services, treatments and approach to wellness differentiate them from any peers or competitors. “Ayurveda Pura London provides the best possible services through following the ancient Ayurvedic principles within their treatments and use of their authentic products. All guests to the spa are treated to a 5-star experience with bespoke treatments using the finest of ingredients.” As you can imagine, Ayurveda Pura’s staff remain crucial to the spa’s efforts, acting as ambassadors to the brand’s excellence, and being at the forefront of the guest experience, as Michael continues. “Ayurveda Pura London staff are trained and qualified to carry out the highest effective Ayurvedic and Beauty Treatments. Many of Ayurveda Pura's therapists have been with the company for many years and find joy and satisfaction in working for a company with a great reputation and high standards.” As the greater industry grows on the back of burgeoning interest in wellness alternatives, Ayurveda remains a stalwart – the efficacy of its treatments and teachings finding a new wave of fans amongst yogis and layman alike. “Ayurveda Pura London is within the health and beauty sector but feel they continue to have an edge in the market through their unique and authentic practices of Ayurveda. There is a growing interest amongst yogis as they learn more of the origins and practices. At the end of the day, we are seeing continued growth as many people are learning more of Ayurvedic tradition and wisdom. Even though Ayurveda has been practised for over 5000 years many are just coming into the knowledge of its benefits.” This very much defines Ayurveda Pura going forward, as they continue on their path, developing their treatments and growing their product line. “Ayurveda Pura London continues to grow with their products and services being featured in many 5-star hotels throughout the world. They continue to provide training to therapists within their academy also located in London.” Company: Ayurveda Pura Ltd Name: Dr. Deepa Apté Address: 48 Newton Lodge, Oval Square, London, SE10 0BA, United Kingdom Website: Telephone: +44 020 8312 8383 Option 3
