Join Karuna Detox Retreat and experience a life changing moment with its wonderful team. For many of Karuna Detox Retreats clients this is a transforming relationship with food, body and self. Many find inspiration, information and tools they need for a Fresh Start. Karuna Detox Retreat offers support, educate and share in a relaxed non-preaching way, with humor and understanding.
Karuna Detox Retreats guests reside in one of a series of cottages and a farmhouse, with poolhouse, sauna, gym suite, yoga room and common room. Each cottage has a sitting room with flat screen TV, DVD and wireless. Set within landscaped gardens and 5 acres of peaceful fields, this is Devon at its best.
You will get a chance to lose toxins and weight (6 lbs - 2 stone). Relax and rejuvenate naturally as aches, pains and symptoms of toxicity are cleansed, improve digestion and immunity, gain healthy inspiration to improve diet, lifestyle, heal relationships and be you, only now with a cleaner colon.
The cottages consist of a range of rooms, for all budgets. Two master cottages have their own sitting room and lovely views. There are single rooms in shared 2-4 bedroom cottages - most are private singles, either ensuite or with private shower/bathroom. Four cottages are singles with shared bathrooms (two people to one bathroom). Some may be booked as twin rooms to share with a friend or family.
Rest assured, you will get a great introduction here and be encouraged to learn according to your own pace. In Karuna Detox yoga classes, each person can experience something new and encouraging regardless of their previous experience. More advanced practitioners will be able to get adjustments, if they ask the teacher. There is also yoga gear and time to do self practice.
Yoga is more about experiencing how your body works, than it is about flexibility. Some of the most graceful and poised people on Earth are also the stiffest - they simply know their body's strengths and weakness, and seek to move within those. It is generally true that with relaxed repetition of movement flexibility does come, as does strength and stamina, but to try too hard is to lose the wood for the trees.
If you are a beginner or a practiced yogi, you can learn something new in our detox yoga. Use the retreat time to stretch, release and relax. Learn to self-correct your posture and lengthen you body from within, relieving strain and joint pain. Daily Yoga is deeply relaxing and enhances your detox.
Meditation to develop awareness, harmony and self-love of ourselves as we are in the present moment. Based on teachings and practices by mindfulness masters such as EkhartTolle, ThichNhat Khan, Byron Katie, Marshall Rosenberg, Louise Hay, Esther Hicks, Vipassana acc. to Goenka and more.Each meditation class is unique as Sho follows the potential in the room.
Our sharing groups provide a safe space to share experience and thoughts. This promotes emotional support between course members and creates a special bond. As with anything on the retreat, it is not obligatory. Also, a facilitator is always on-hand to provide individual support if required.
The venue is only 3.5 hrs from London or Birmingham, 2 hrs from Bristol, 2.5 hrs from Bath or Cardiff and 1 hour from Exeter Airport or Train Station (share a taxi or bus options).
