Detox

Detoxification is the process of removing toxic substances from the human body. The aim is to feel fit, fresh, and energized. At MoaAlm, they believe the best way to detox is a simple mix between consuming the right food and drinks, being active in the fresh air, and practicing breathing techniques. This yoga and detox retreat does not involve any fasting, medication, or physical cleansing.

Yoga

The word yoga means union in Sanskrit. At MoaAlm, they like to see yoga as the union between movement and breath. By synchronizing your breathing to the movements of your body you enhance your physical endurance and you learn to better understand your own body. Yoga poses help improve your flexibility and strength.

Yoga is for everyone, it doesn't matter how old, fit, or flexible you are! The yoga classes are always tailored to individual needs so that everyone can participate at his own level and pace.
