woman and man greeting others with namaste

Namaste – an ancient greeting

With the palms of her hands pressed against each other resting meditatively against her chest, she bows her head graciously. In a serene but audible tone she utters, ‘Namaste’.

Saroj has just humbly offered an ancient greeting that extends beyond the courtesy of a superficial hello or welcome.

She has paid homage to you as another spiritual being and offered her respect in the hope that the significance of the gesture will be shared.


I Bow to You

The word ‘Namaste’ is steeped in Indian culture and religion. When translated from the ancient Sanskrit language, the intention of the word is ‘I bow to you’. It is not a bow of pure servitude but an invitation to release ones ego and come together as equals, in mind and spirit. Come together in a homely place of quiet and calm, a place of rejuvenation.

Our Philosophy

It is the intention of ‘Namaste’ that underlies the philosophy of Prana. It is a place which honours and nurtures the spirit, the mind and the body. Our treatments and products reflect our firm belief that beauty is about a deep sense of well-being, vibrancy and contentment that radiates from within.


Based on Ayurvedic practices, one of the oldest systems of medicine in the world, our holistic approach guides the way we help you achieve balance in your life.

Prana in Applecross

Prana is an extension of who we are, what we believe and how we practice. When we welcome you, it is in the true spirit of ‘Namaste’.
