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.

Daily Yoga sessions

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 and affirmation

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.

Personal sharing

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.

    "Such a treat to spend time in a clean beautiful environment away from city noise! Sho and her team made for a very pleasant stay, with a lot of work behind the scenes to make it run so smoothly. Absolutely outstanding juices and broth every day, clean comfortable quiet rooms, yoga and meditation daily, pool and sauna, massage and other well-being treatments all put together to make an ideal retreat. I feel fantastic after my stay. I will be back."

    "I knew I was searching for a detox as after a hard life, I was full of toxins and tired all the time. I managed to get lucky and find a last minute place at Karuna.I detoxed from the moment I arrived to the moment I left.... A real Spring clean!The support and knowledge from Sho and the staff was excellent, I had been on a path of better health for a while, but I felt the retreat just gave me that help up one more level.I met wonderful people on the retreat and am currently publishing the worlds first multi-media magazine in my industry with someone I met at Karuna.You just never know what will happen when you choose to give to yourself and take time to heal and clean your body."

    "Dear Sho!I had one of my life's most special weeks at the retreat. I feel like after being able to manage one week without food, I can manage anything!My intention for the week was to get more energy. The week was hard, but I feel a bit lighter both fiscally (lost weight) and mentally. It felt good being far away from the worries back home.When I returned home the first days I was over focused on healthy food, until I turned the focus to what I want to eat and what makes me feel good and what makes me feel fanatic.I drink more water, eat less sugar (sweets) and more nuts. I'm still in a kind of in experimental mode.I had treatment (on retreat) every day and was very satisfied with all of them. If I had more money I would have taken a few more treatments - reiki and chakra reading.You, Lisa and Paul were really hard working during the week an always smiling. That made the week over all good. And the journey I made with Louise was very useful for me.Thank you for a very special and healthy week. I learned a lot about nutrion, what is healthy, and reminding me again: My body is unique and I have to learn to take better care of it both mentally and physically.Thanks again and warm thoughts to all of you. Continue the blessed work you do."

    "I wanted to let you know how amazing I feel coming out of the detox retreat. I feel some vital energy inside of me.Something has definitely come unstuck inside of me and I am starting to de-clutter my house with ease and I am thinking of all the things I can do about my work and generally in my life.I feel like I have been paralysed for so long and suddenly I feel full of direction.I am sticking to the raw food/salad routine and having lightly cooked veg in the evenings. I feel so good on it why would I want to stuff my face with crappy food?Thank you, thank you, thank you for what I feel has been a life-changing week. You are a special person, Sho and impart your gifts with such love and joy."

    "Im losing weight and at the same time eating good food, and finally started to enjoy making food. It came to a point for that for some days the only thing i felt like putting into the body was juice, so I bought myself a juicer, and am enjoying making my own juices. Its fun and feels so good to give this to myself! Thanks to you for everything, including the inspiration and confidence you gave me!"

    "These days under Shoshana's safe guidance are very valuable to me. I experience Sho's wisdom, warmth and sincerity, heartfelt and unconditional. She communicated her knowledge seemingly effortlessly, a joy to be with! I loved the rest and quiet atmosphere in your yoga. And I'm left with a new appreciation of my body and it's powers. I cherish this. Thank you!"

    "Thank you so much for a truly wonderful mental, physical and spiritual experience. I had never fasted before and I felt completely guided and supported throughout - both by yourself and the other beautiful people here on the retreat. I came to experience a physical detox and I have left with so much more - a relaxed mind, a deeper connection with my body and an increased ability to switch off from daily stresses. I really appreciate your balanced, non-prescriptive, detailed knowledge of mental and physical health."

    "Felt good to give my body this holiday. Fasting was much easier than I expected, and full of good surprises. It helped me relax at a deeper level. Plus, I'm inspired to make some healthy changes in my diet at home. This detox expanded my consciousness about body, food and spirit. You held the group beautifully with much knowledge, humour and peace. Thank you!"
