Your Path to Wellness Begins Here
The Chopra Center's core wellness program
Are you feeling stressed out and anxious? Do you have trouble getting a good night’s sleep? Are you struggling with pain, a chronic condition, or a difficult diagnosis?
If physical and emotional roadblocks are preventing you from fully enjoying your life, it’s time to experience Perfect Health.
Perfect Health is one of the Chopra Center’s most popular signature programs – a 6- or 10-day mind-body immersion that blends the healing arts of the East with the best in modern Western medicine. For the past two decades, people from throughout the world have come to the Chopra Center to balance, heal, and transform at Perfect Health.
In the Chopra Center’s beautiful nurturing setting, you will feel your stress and tension melt away as our highly trained team of physicians, certified educators, and healing arts masters help you restore your balance and address your personal health and life concerns.
The Perfect Health program’s unique approach is based on the powerful principles of Ayurveda, India’s 5,000-year-old healing system. Ayurveda focuses on the whole person – the mind, body, and spirit – seeking to correct the imbalances that cause distress and disease. Health is not just the absence of illness or symptoms – it is a state of expanded wellbeing, vitality, and joy.
Are you ready to experience the only mind-body healing program that combines daily massage treatments; a staff of holistic M.D.s; and instruction in yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda; and the unique cleansing and detoxification therapy known as panchakarma?
The 10-Day Perfect Health Panchakarma program is an extended version of the signature Perfect Health Panchkarma program, offering you an opportunity to immerse yourself in additional rejuvenating and restorative treatments following your week of panchakarma cleansing. The 10-day program features further in-depth sessions led by our master teachers on topics such as energy healing, ayurvedic cooking, and emotional health – as well as daily meditation and yoga classes.
The 10-Day Perfect Health Panchakarma program takes place at the Chopra Center on the grounds of the world-famous La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California – the sweet spot of the universe.

What is the Perfect Health program?
Perfect Health is a 6- or 10-day mind-body healing immersion offered almost every week at the Chopra Center, located in the beautiful coastal town of Carlsbad, California.
Inspired by Deepak Chopra’s best-selling book Perfect Health, this signature mind-body program will teach you principles and techniques – both ancient and modern – to soothe your body and mind, ease your stress, and relieve your anxiety.
The Chopra Center’s core wellness program invites you to step out of your busy life of challenges and deadlines and immerse yourself in the healing world of Ayurveda.
Your path to wellness includes mind-body classes taught by Chopra Center master educators, an integrative medical consultation with one of our gifted board-certified physicians, customized Ayurvedic massage treatments for your mind-body personality, detoxifying and rejuvenating therapies – plus instruction in Primordial Sound Meditation and daily Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga classes.
Attendance at the Perfect Health program is limited to 33 guests to ensure the most personal and intimate experience.
What happens at the Perfect Health program?
Your Perfect Health experience begins on Monday morning with a welcome session where you will meet the Chopra Center educators, healing arts masters, and physicians who will be working with you throughout the week. You will experience your first Ayurvedic massage treatment and attend your first class – an introduction to Primordial Sound Meditation, followed by a special one-on-one session where you will be given your personal mantra. The evening concludes with a group meditation practice and a gentle Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga class that will bring you into a state of deep relaxation before you return to your guest room and drift off to sleep.
During your Perfect Health experience, each day begins and ends with sessions in the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga (suited for all levels) and a group meditation held in the serenity of our Meditation Room, which has absorbed the peaceful vibrations of thousands of meditators over the years. You will receive an individual schedule for your daily customized Ayurvedic massage treatments – as well as for your one-on-one mind-body medical consultation.
All instruction take place in the Chopra Center’s beautiful, welcoming Dharma Room, where you can make yourself comfortable with an abundant supply of soft blankets. Fresh fruit, light snacks, and herbal tea are available throughout the day. In this relaxed group setting, our master certified instructors will teach you the fundamentals of living an Ayurvedic lifestyle, including:
- Identifying your mind-body constitution (dosha)
- Healing yourself through the power of the five senses
- Food as medicine and eating to balance your dosha
- Emotional healing
- A customized balancing routine
- Training in the wisdom of natural herbs
- Lessons in communicating effectively and compassionately
- The keys to turning your intentions into good choices for health and wellbeing
The final part of the Perfect Health program is a devoted to rejuvenation and self-nourishment. At this point, you've released an enormous amount of physical and emotional toxicity, and are beginning the Ayurvedic process known as rasayana – a Sanskrit term that means "that which nourishes."
You will be pampered with restorative Ayurvedic massage treatment and continue to replenish your body with herbs, natural foods, meditation, and yoga. Your Perfect Health experience concludes with a special closing ceremony and meditation.

"It has been 8 months now since I spent a week with the Chopra family in Carlsbad ― eight months of meditation, improved diet, some yoga (I start and stop), and a continuous increase of magic in my life. I may sometimes slip on the diet and exercise, but I do not compromise on the meditation. It is my salvation and part of the sacred manner in which I start and end each day. I wanted to thank you for your teachings and your support. I have come to accept those 'intrusive' thoughts as 'things I can come back to later' as I usher them along and reclaim the stillness. There is so much in that silent space, nothing and everything. Namaste."
"I would like to like to say a big ‘Thank You' to the therapists and doctors of the Chopra Center for successfully getting me back to work! As a 54-year-old computer guy, I’d been through a tough time, with months of 20-hour workdays. I was unable to continue using a computer mouse due to the pain and increasingly limited mobility from overwork of my right hand and elbow. A similar work crunch a few years ago had already left me with a damaged left hand and elbow, so in addition to the discomfort, I was faced with being physically unable to do my job.
My doctor prescribed a painkiller, but although it dulled the pain and let me sleep, did nothing for my mobility. For New Years my wife checked us into the Chopra Center for the Perfect Health Panchakarma program for a general health and de-stress break – not actually for my hand problems. Still, after the first day's treatment the pain had largely gone from my right hand, and by the end of the program I had pain-free mobility in both hands and elbows.
I felt the excellent massage therapy helped the most, but this is a balanced program and it may well be the combination of treatments that made it so effective for me. The therapies are certainly powerful, pleasant, and healing, and the therapists are very caring, giving people."
“I loved every second of this experience. This is the most healing time I’ve had in my adult life. God bless all of you!”
~ Vikram J.
"I walked into the Chopra Center not knowing what to expect. My body was telling me I needed a change. After participating in the Perfect Health Program, I walked out a brand-new me ― mentally, physically, and spiritually. I continue my growth, daily. I highly recommend The Chopra Center to help guide those seeking a higher sense of wellbeing."
