WHAT IS AVAYASANA?

Avayasana is a unique Body, Mind, Soul Retreat located at the Dead Sea, an oasis of tranquility within the Judean Desert’s expansive stillness.

Rooted in the scientifically proven healing properties of floatation therapy R.E.S.T (Reduced Environment Stimulation Technique), we offer an innovative approach combining Western science with Eastern disciplines and philosophy.

Our retreat combines DeepFloating therapies in the Dead Sea’s naturally healing buoyant water— with the ancient traditions of yoga and meditation.

The transformative effects of our floating practices, combined with desert yoga and meditation— are a life-changing journey into healing body and mind, as well as a profound experience of harmonious connection with self and nature.

THE PERFECT WELLNESS DESTINATION

Silent. Sacred. Soothing.
For centuries the Dead Sea has been a magnet for mystics, spa-goers, and health seekers.

This enormous sea of salty goodness, surrounded by pristine desert, is an environmental haven that cannot be found anywhere else in the natural world.
