Detailed Information

KOSA (pronounced Kosha) is a layer or a sheath of the self. In yoga philosophy there are 5 kosas – the physical, energetic, mental, intellectual, and soul. Each layer is a dimension of the self, ultimately leading to true nature where we find inner bliss.

Kosa was created to serve the needs of modern-day society, by offering an authentic, accessible, nurturing environment that is rare to find in our busy, digitally-saturated lives. The mission is to offer people an invitation to find their true nature, connect with each other, and connect with the world around us. And in doing so, we can feel better and live happier lives.

A unique fusion of East meets West, Kosa blends the timeless and universal Indian tradition of Ayurveda (ayur=life; veda=wisdom) with products made by artisans in Wisconsin and NGO’s in India.

Each season, we carefully select and source fresh, organic ingredients that are in balance with mother nature. Guests will experience these on the inside and outside, in everything from the aromatherapy, teas and foods from Kosa Kitchen, oils and skin care products and herbal remedies.

Guests are invited to visit the 4,500 square foot space to experience our Ayurvedic offerings ranging from massages and facials to personal day retreats and Ayurvedic wellness consultations. Each degree of engagement, over time, can be transformative.

The essence of KOSA is our people and our space. Take the time to learn more, orient yourself with our offerings, and carve out time for self-care and retreat with us.

Great holistic experience. Would recommend and definitely would go again. Left feeling very refreshed!If you want... deep tissue, you won't get that here (this is more light to medium pressure). However, I still thoroughly enjoyed the massage and loved the warm kappa oil used. My body felt so relaxed that even my shoulders (my problem area) felt revitalized.read more

I had the Inner Glow Facial with Partial Abhyanga with Peg along with the 1 hour personal retreat. Peg was extremely... patient, gentle and thorough. All the products she used worked wonders on my sensitive skin and smelled divine. I was wary of going to the spa during the COVID19 pandemic but everything was so clean and all the staff wore masks. Definitely recommend for the experience was lovely.read more

Amazing experience! The minute you walk in, it’s an eco oasis with a wonderful curation of truly taking care of... YOU!The space is so thoughtfully laid out by the beautiful owner Shilpa. The attention to keeping the space as green as possible is a true testament to the commitments of an Ayurvedic lifestyle. It’s is a perfect merge of East and Midwest ✨My shirodhara treatment has been something I have been waiting to do for twenty years. It was the best relaxing experience of calm, while oil was drizzled to help soothe my mind. Thank you again Shilpa for the amazing hospitality and to Sarah my amazing practitioner. I wish I lived closer! ✨read more

This was a great and tranquil experience. My mom and I did a couples message and enjoyed the wonderful sauna. They took... care of us so well that it felt like we were the only ones there. We left there feeling so wonderful and relaxed. We do recommend going at least once. I know I will be going back again. Thanks everyone at Kosa.read more

Today I had my first experience at KOSA and thoroughly enjoyed a 90 minute classic abhyanga with Sarah. My skin feels... the most luxurious it has ever felt and I walked out feeling immensely grounded and calm. Had a lovely interaction with the owner, Shilpa, who exudes true pride in the balancing and rejuvenating space she has worked to create. I had a very soothing experience, even amongst the covid precautions. We're lucky to have a space like this in Madison.read more

We are lucky to have Kosa in Madison. I did the 120 minute balancing ritual with Sarah and had a wonderful experience;... I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated afterward. I added a mini retreat with a private sauna and meditation room experience and it was 100% worth it. The extra touches like the flowers, snack, and drinks really added a caring touch. This is a wonderful spa that is clearly run with love and dedication. I felt completely safe there during COVID.read more

My experience at Kosa was amazing. Especially in this day and age it is so important to look after yourself and engage... in self care. The team at Kosa was so amazing and my esthetician, Tanya, was wonderful. While you’re there make sure you try some food from the Kosa Kitchen! It is simply divine.read more

In the midst of the current uncertainty in the world, Kosa Spa offers an incredible retreat in Madison. I found my... second visit to be just as luxurious as the first. The current increased safety and health measures in place are excellent - I personally loved having my own quiet time in the room following my services. Both the Abhyanga and Inner Glow facial were lovely - Sarah and Peg were so kind and made sure I felt comfortable throughout. I also must mention that the space they've created is simply gorgeous! Shilpa and her team do such a wonderful job making guests feel truly relaxed and at home at Kosa. I am eagerly awaiting my next visit!read more
