Why detox

With modern lifestyles, people usually put more toxins into their bodies. Over time the toxins build up, creating sluggish digestion, a disturbed mind, restlessness and poor health. Even if you feel you are relatively healthy, detoxification is a wonderful preventative measure against ageing and future ill-health.

  • Losing weight or body fat
  • Reducing addictions and unwanted habits
  • Keeping your skin well oxidized and fresh
  • Increasing resistance to allergies
  • Helping to cure and prevent disease and sickness
  • Allowing deep relaxation and rejuvenation
  • Strengthening will power and concentration

Yoga and relaxation

A balanced yoga practice is known to rejuvenate the body, increase vitality, and train the mind to be strong and flexible in the face of stress and change. It balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system, and promotes creative potential. For many years now yoga has helped in healing the pain of physical illness, mental pressure, drug and alcohol dependence, and other addictive behaviors.

On a physical level, you will be able to first cleanse, then furnish all the cells and tissues of your body with the elements and the nutritional enzymes they need, thereby increasing physical well-being and helping you to stay slim, healthy, and vital. Bodily or emotional reactive symptoms are inevitable, as you will be carrying out a process of detoxification. They come in waves, often lasting just a few hours, rarely more than a day, and always changing.

Jolie Adventures staff members will with you throughout this process, reminding you that this is just a part of the process and that it will all pass. It is not uncommon to hear participants "complain" that they experienced no challenging symptoms whatsoever!
