7 Days Fasting and Yoga Retreat in Germany

Yoga Retreats in Germany

Fasting is primarily an act of willing abstinence or reduction from certain or all food, drink, or both, for a period of time. Liquid fasting is the abstaining from all solid foods; only liquids are ingested. Other than water, the liquids used have high nutritional value and are easy to digest and assimilate. In Healing Castle Schochwitz, you can have a pre-fasting preparation weekend or a full time fasting program with all what you need included.
