Shanka Prakshalana is a yogic technique of voluntary washing of the gastro-intestinal tract. The gastro-intestinal tract begins at the mouth and involves the whole alimentary canal. This washing method, is a thorough process of cleansing stomach, intestine, colon, and rectum and has to be performed under the supervision of the skilled guide.
The thorough cleansing of nearly 30 feet of gastro-intestinal tract from within, permits the process of absorption, assimilation, and excretion to function optimally. In a clinical setting, the useful effects of this washing are manifold for divergent conditions including diabetes, boils, acne, worms infestation, indigestion, chronic dysentery, constipation, muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, cancer, and so forth. The action of this washing of the bowel is much more powerful than laxative and purgatives, which take more time to induce their effects and are addictive. It also has proven to be a practicable, low cost alternative to dialysis and also as a sufficient treatment alone for kidney patients as well.
Poor elimination can lead to many chronic diseases such as constipation, diarrhea, mucus colitis, liver sluggishness, headaches, flatulence, hemorrhoids, skin problems (acne, eczema), abdominal bloating, asthma, allergies, fatigue, depression, lethargy, and others. There is a brain behind gut feelings. The brain in the gut plays a major role in human happiness and misery but few people know it exists. Health and sickness both have their roots in the colon. A healthy gut contributes to a healthy mind.
Daily nature walks and hikes are included in this retreat.

Located beyond forbidding heights of the greater Himalayas and by the banks of the shining river Beas, lies the fabled "silver valley" or Kullu also known as the “valley of the living Gods”. Small villages and hamlets occupy a large part of the valley, which is a rich blend of natural beauty and cultural heritage. Passing through these villages, you will feel as if you have stepped into an altogether new world. The surroundings, the people, their customs and traditions will leave you completely awestruck. The snow covered peaks, sparkling rivers, dense forests, terraced fields, and apple orchards have a magical effect on a tired soul.
A landscape tinted by golden sunsets and silvery snow with rolling meadows dotted with wild flowers, it is truly a place to lift your spirit and discover your divinity within. Nestling in the lap of the Himalaya, Himachal Pradesh holds an enviable diversity of mountain landscapes, a rich culture, and several entertainment opportunities. Its snow covered peaks, deep gorges, lush green valleys, thick woods, fast flowing rivers, enchanting lakes, and flower filled meadows make it a traveler's paradise.
