Ananda Marga Mexico Yoga Retreat Program

The most common way to achieve better health is to find out what is wrong with you and then treat the symptoms. But in this program, Ananda Marga Mexico builds better health by creating an environment where problems and imbalances simply do not thrive. Together, you'll create a higher frequency of being where optimum health arises naturally. That’s the power of this holistic rejuvenation program. That’s the effectiveness of simply combining juice fasting, yoga therapy, power foods, and meditation.

This comprehensive yoga detox program is unique. It is designed to create both better all-around health and a sustained sense of relaxation. It is designed to give you realistic tools to take charge of your own physical and emotional health and to be truly independent. This program is for anyone who wants to feel dramatic and immediate positive change in their life and wants to feel more energized, eliminate toxins, perhaps needs help overcoming negative patterns and habits, struggles with weight problems, or simply wishes to feel less stressed.
