Overview

Sublime Living Detox and Rejuvenation Retreat in India

  • 21 days with instruction
  • Sublime wellbeing is a system, as well as a way of seeing life and nature - a compelling possiblility which once embraced fully can produce significant results in a short time. This is not because of any magical spells or mysterius potions, but because of one simple, highly visible fact most illness, and our general lack of optimal wellbeing is caused by a relatively small number of endlessly re-occuring issues-stress, inadequate nutrition, inappropriate or no exercise, poor breathing and emotional blocks. These symptoms are all the result of habits-poor lifestyle choices, which have created a state of toxification. If we were to change our habits we would change the way that we feel in this body.

    Beach huts

    Most of Ashiyanas accommodation are located on the dunes which seperates Mandrem river from the Arabian sea. The others are located on the mainland facing the river. There are huts sheltered behind the banks of the dune and others on the dune top. They all come with en-suite bathroom, fan and mosquito net. Whilst being the economist section of the accomodation, they have recently been upgranded with simple, yet chic interior-designed finishes.

    Palm groves

    Much of Ashiyanas accomodation is in a beautiful palm grove fronting the Mandrem river and facing towards the sea which can be viewed from some of the upper-floor-balconies. The accomodation is in the form of luxury-eco-lodges, tree-houses and stoned-build houses set admist lust tropical gardens, statues and water features. The lodges and tree-houses are built of local wood giving an Indonesian feel, through most finishing touches are borrowed from classical Indian design with plenty of natural fabrics and antique furniture.

    All the rooms are spacious and comfortable with large windows and wonderful views. As far as possible the en-suite bathrooms have been built to allow a little of the outside in, with large open window spaces and blinds. Each room has ample cupboard space and its own balcony with day-bed.

    The retreat opens with an engaging talk by Dr. Skikha, followed by an initial one to one consultation with her so that she can understand better the range and depth of your symptoms, and then design a specific program for you.

    Each day will begin with an energizing yoga class, followed by a delicious brunch of natural, healthy food. The rest of your day will be split between sessions with Dr. Shikha at her nearby clinic (30 min taxi ride). Prescribed bodywork at our beautiful spa that will both relax and further energize you, and relaxation time on the endless stretch of quiet, pristine beaches. The evening meal rounds off the day, and before bed there will be a relaxation session.

    A highly effective approach to detoxification and rejuvenation

    This system involves a two-step process: Detoxify your system, then replenish with oxygen, whilst also addressing some of the unsupportive lifestyle habits that you have accumulated.

    Ozone therapy, or active oxygen has achieved some truly staggering results, and Dr. Shikha has incorporated into many of her treatments for its profound cleansing and rejuvenatory properties. She also uses chelation therapy (removal of toxic heavy metals), and colon hydrotheraphy where appropriate. Her approach is centered on 'cell health', because when your cells are healthy, so too are your tissues, organs and entire body. Hence, the process always begins with cleansing your system of the waste products that have accumulated at the cellular level.

    Effects of ozone on our body

    Ozone therapy stimulates the production of white blood cells, which helps in fighting infections

    Ozone is a strong virucidal agent, in other words: it eliminates viruses

    Ozone therapy increases oxygen and haemoglobin dissassociation, thus increasing the delivery of oxygen from the blood to the cells

    Ozone acts as an anti-neoplastic; in other words: it inhibits the growth of new tissuess like tumours

    Ozone oxidizes petrochemicals

    Ozone therapy icreases red blood cell membrane dispensability, thereby enhancing their flexibility and thus effectiveness

    Ozone increases the production of interferon and tumour necrosis factor, thereby helping the body to fight off infections and cancers

    Ozone makes the enzyme anti-oxidant system more efficient; it helps to better scavenge excess free radicals in the body

    Ozone makes the critic acid cycle go faster, which liberates energy from sugars. It also acceleratesthe breaking down of proteins, carbohydrates and fats to be used as energy

    Ozone increases tissue ocygenation

    The Ashiyana location offers a balance between the serenity of a coconut palm grove, bodered by the enchanting Mandrem river, and a beautiful quiet beach with the invigorating sound of the waves breaking against the shore just beyond the dunes. Mandrem, a remote and sleepy fishing village in the north of Goa, has a number of restaurants, an internet cafe, a travel agent, a small organic shop, general grocery store and places to rent motorbikes or hire taxis. Thirty minutes away by road is the large market town of Mapusa, which has good coach connections to other Indian towns and cities.

    A pleasant 40-minute stroll (10 minutes by taxi) north along the beach is the lively and colorful village of Arambol. One of the main attractions to this distinctly 'hippy' hangout is the fresh-water lake separated from the sea by broad golden sands and it also has a post office, a small market, restaurants and beach-front bars, some featuring live music. A southward stroll takes you along a quiet stretch of beach dolted with beach shacks and restaurants.

    Whenever possible, organic produce are bought and the retreat mostly has vegetarian food apart from twice-weekly fish or chicken dish dinners.

    As well as yoga and other retreats and events we are offering a mix of creative workshops, including arts, craft, and musical. The detail for these visiting teachers are available on request, though often workshops are created quite organically.

    Every Monday evening at 20.00, from about 1st November throughout the season we have a barefoot boogie which is inspired by contact improvised dance. This is a celebration of movement throught intimacy either in unison with others or simply on your own. It is a beautiful way to meet yourself and others more deeply and honestly than is usually possible with words and conditioned behavioural patterns.

    We want to keep our activities physical presence as low-impact as possible, especially in regard to the quietness of Mandrem beach. There are kite surfing teachers along the beach and hand gliding from the cliffs. Elsewhere in Goa every imaginable water sport is well catered for. Goa is also famous for its daytime and nighttime activities such as Baga night market on Saturday evening, Anjuna Flea market on Wednesday, Bondala national park and zoo, spice farms, old Goa, the beautiful old parts of Panjim (Goas capital), Dudsagar waterfall.

      "I have now been on several of Melanie's retreats at Ashiyana in Goa. With her excellent Ashtanga yoga teaching, as well as her focus on breath through pranayama, relaxation, and improvements in your practice, it happens almost without you noticing! As for the wonderful setting, healthy food prepared by the Nepalese chefs, and cooling plunge pool, well, what can I say? Come and enjoy the fun and healthy regime!"

      "To Chris and his lovely team, thank you for a wonderful week of heavenly yoga, lush food, and peaceful surroundings. I have walked away with a sense of calm and ease, which I hope to bring into my everyday life now. You will be pleased to know that I have continued with an hour of yoga daily and am even practicing with my nine-year-old daughter. Thanks and maybe see you again one day, hopefully in Brazil. Best wishes."

    • Review by a traveler from New Delhi, India

      "This is a very nice place for a yoga holiday. It is not an ashram, so people seeking a more authentic spiritual Indian atmosphere might be better off somewhere else. The decoration is beautiful. The garden is rich and nicely maintained. It is a wonderful experience to practice yoga outside, surrounded by palm trees, with the sound of tropical birds in the background. We stayed in one of the beach huts near the river: simple, but you have got all you need. The mosquito nets are helpful against being bitten. The huts are close to the restaurant and the yoga shala and yet still very quiet, except for the dogs barking during the night. There were some problems with the pool so, unfortunately, we could not use the pool, but maybe they have found a solution by now? Brunch was always very nice, delicious food (freshly baked bread, fruits, yogurt, and homemade granola), dinner was at 7:30 and also simple and delicious dal dish and vegetable dish, salad, and a cake. I highly recommend the place to everybody who likes to be in the middle of nature in a stunning little world with simple but delicious food and very friendly staff."

      "Wow. I have never been somewhere so stunning. The huts were beautifully designed and full of amazing furniture. The premises and yoga shalas were fantastic. The yoga courses were all different and all good. The food was healthy and delicious (though the chai was boring). Only problem was that the resident yoga trainee teachers were a bit weird. They seemed to float around kissing each other like pristine angels with bodies of a temple. We met some teacher trainers from the other yoga center down the road and they were normal people."

    • Review by Ron from Cabarita Beach, Australia

      "This is the second time I have stayed for a yoga holiday here. From the moment you walk in you seem to just become quieter and calmer, all the staff are fantastic as was our room and, of course, the food. I stayed in a raj double this time, which was amazing. It was a lot busier than the last time I stayed, as a yoga retreat season arrived, but it did not take anything away from my stay. There are something for everyone, be it detox, teacher training, retreat, or drop-in yoga classes, which cater for every level. The teacher training program must be really good as they produce amazing teachers. I also love all the people that I met here from all over the world, I cannot wait to go back! "

Beautiful lush greenery, peaceful and quiet, on a beautiful and non-crowded beach. Two yoga classes a day and different workshops on top. You can hide in the corner or you can mix up with the other guests, it is up to you. Great veggie food. I felt completely relaxed."
