Perfect Health is a 6- or 10-day mind-body healing immersion offered on selected weeks each month 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 28 guests (6-Day Program) and 35 guests (10-Day Program) to ensure the most personal and intimate experience.
The Perfect Health experience begins on Monday morning with an Orientation with the Program Manager and Medical Director who will be guiding and supporting you throughout the week along with the Chopra Center educators, healing arts masters and physicians on staff.
Your first day will include the following:
- Guidance on our signature cleanse

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 consultationand an Ayurvedic Follow-up with one of our certified instructors. Breakfast (starting on Tuesday) and lunch are included each day. Healthy dinner options are available on site.
All instruction takes place in the Chopra Center’s warm and welcoming Dharma Room where you can make yourself comfortable and at home. Fresh ginger and herbal teas are available throughout the day.
