The basement was converted into an ayurvedic spa with treatment tasters going on all day, from ayurvedic head massages, Reiki, henna , ayurvedic facials and pain relieving treatments . Coolherbals had free testers to try out from potlis to creams. Ayurvedic doctors gave free consultations. To calm down after all this excitement, the Yoga and Meditation Zone was full all day to provide peace and sanctuary. Speakers from as far as the USA kept the audience captivated with interesting lectures on An Ayurvedic way of Life and The paradox of Happiness . Coolherbals launched their Ayurvedic 24K Gold Facial on the stage which produced magnificient results. The festival finished off with The Diabetes Conference with experts from the world of Medicine and Ayurveda. The event was covered by Zee TV and Asian Voice.
