This retreat offers the ideal break for the time and health conscious among you. It is designed to help your body eliminate toxins in an efficient, yet gentle and healthy way. Detox specialists will assess your health status during an initial consultation and work out a detox plan tailored to your own personal needs, which is always based on the holistic principles of alternative medicine that includes detoxifying foods, herbs, and spices. This is a holistic detox for your body, mind, and soul.
For this retreat, you will be staying in Earth Yoga Village's beautiful and comfortable village, which holds space for up to twenty-five guests, a small health food cafe, one yoga shala, two healing and rejuvenation spaces, a healing water tank, a small library, and a chill out area.
The jungle beach huts available at the village are beautifully inspired by Rajasthani designs and come with an open-air bathroom.
In the 21st century, there are two things that have become increasingly apparent. Firstly, you are exposed to a more complex combination of toxic compounds in air, water, and food than ever before. Secondly, it has been recognized that an individual’s ability to detoxify is crucial to overall health.
While the concept that accumulated toxins in the body are the cause of various health problems has been well known for a while, Earth Yoga Village has gained even more insights in recent years about how toxins affect you, where they come from, and how to improve your ability to detoxify in a toxic world.
An overload of toxins in the body and the body's reduced ability to deal with it can lead to symptoms like headaches, fatigues, muscle pains, joint pains, sinus congestion, bloating, constipation, sleep disturbances, heartburn, difficulty concentrating, food cravings, water retention, trouble losing weight, acne, rashes and other skin problems, dark circles under eye, and bad breath.
It can also lead to more serious conditions, such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, dementia, heart disease, cancer, food allergies, or autoimmune disease. Problems with detoxification is one root of illness and the mentioned conditions. The gut is one of the major systems in the body that must be working well for you to be healthy.
This is why this is an efficient and powerful detox program to keep you healthy. The objectives of this retreat are to bring the body back to its natural self-healing state, to cleanse the digestive system to aid the different and interlinked body systems to work in harmony, and to take time out for yourself and relax.
Your daily schedule may change depending on your tailor-made treatments. Your first day is dedicated for you to settle in and for an introduction and information meeting from 16:00 to 18:30, which then is followed by dinner.

Set among lush green jungle within a short walk to a paradise beach, you will find Earth Yoga Village to be extremely peaceful and the ideal place to relax. It is your refuge from a busy life and is conveniently located in south Goa on the beautiful beach of Palolem, which is known for its blissful vibes, laid back people, and stunning nature.
Palolem Beach is largely unspoiled and is inhabited by both local fishermen and by foreign tourists who live in shacks along the shore or in the main village. Other neighboring beaches in South Goa include Agonda, Colva, Patnem, and Galjibaga Beach. At Palolem Beach, the Arabian Sea stretches between two magnificent headlands and the beach is lined with towering coconut palms.
The beach is largely unspoiled and is inhabited by both local fishermen and by foreign tourists who live in shacks along the shore or in the main village itself. The white sandy beach gently curves round to form a crescent shape and is about one mile long, where one can view the entire beach from either end.
Both ends of the beach consist of rocks jutting out into the sea. The depth of the sea increases gradually, being shallowest at the northern end of the beach, making it safe for average swimmers, and the currents are not fast. There are other near-by attractions, such as Arpora night market, spice farm, or the Dudhsagar waterfall.
The location offers an ideal place to explore the stunning beaches, beautiful local villages, and surrounding nature outside of your retreat schedule. Earth Yoga Village is strongly engaged in making the village more eco-friendly. It runs partly on solar power and they work hard on adding further eco-friendly measures. Their connection with nature is vital and they strive towards that connection in your every day life and with every action.

"Thank you so much for the last week, it has been unforgettable. I really would be happy to rate this 10 as the yoga was so good every class and pushed us to our limits and the food was so healthy and tasty! We loved all of the instructors and Anand who ran the show everyone was so helpful and went above and beyond making us feel welcome. We will be coming back over Christmas to say hello and do a drop in class or two and we are all looking forward to continuing practicing yoga. Thank you!"

"Me and my boyfriend enjoyed our time we spent in Earth yoga village very much. The yoga classes were excellent let by very experienced and knowledgeable teachers. We did an intro to Ayurveda course which was very informative and really fun. The leader of the course was as well amazing and with a lot of experience and knowledge. The environment could not be better, really quiet with nice and airy huts. I would definitely recommend Earth Yoga Village and would love to visit the place again. Thank you all for the great time we had."

"Me and three of my friends dropped in for a morning session with yoga teacher Anand. It is the first time I have ever tried yoga. Even though the group were at different level Anand made sure that we should push our body within our physical limits. I am very stiff and struggled in the beginning with the positions but Anand was a great teacher and helped me through the session so I managed to get most of it by the end of the class. Me and my friends all agreed we had a good time and felt comfortable throughout the class even though two of us were beginners. I hear they have a lot of longer courses as well, unfortunately we did not have the time to try it out. But when in Goa you have to try yoga and I recommend this place!"
