8 Days Women's Journey Transformational Detox and Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh, India

Badrinath Road, Opp. Balakhnath Mandir P.O Tapovan, Laxman Jhula, Rishikesh, 249192, Uttarakhand, INDIA

Detox and Yoga Retreat India

When we retreat (from the world) into ourselves, something deep within us is accessed. We nourish ourselves in a new way. In a way that we long for in our very active lives but in a way that perhaps we’ve glimpsed but not yet delved into. When we retreat, our senses are sharpened, we become more in tune with our inner selves, our inner voice, our intuition and something changes. Rishikesh on the banks of the Ganges river is a place of ancient yogic and Ayurvedic practices. The energy in this holy town reflect the energy of all the yogis, saints and sages and as such, Rishikesh is the perfect place for this deep transformational work. Fasting has long been practiced by so many who have come before us who have fasted as a tool to access their deeper selves, to cleanse the body and purify the mind. This has a strong effect on us as we open to a deeper connection within and without. The result is that we start looking at our lives and where we are with a fresh and clear vision. With this clarity, it becomes easier to guide and direct our lives into the lives of our own choosing. At the same time, let us guide you to experience India at a spiritual level so that your trip is meaningful and joyful.

Program

Rishikesh, situated on the banks of the Holy Mother Ganges River in the foothills of the Himalaya, is a place of ancient spiritual practices. It is a place that holds the vibration of thousands of years of yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda and as such is the perfect environment for deep transformational work.

Our deeper selves are accessed, channeled through the practice of yoga, meditation, walking, emotional release and detoxifying the body with juice fasting and vegan meals.

YOGA

While yoga is a useful tool for exercising and stretching our physical body as well as nourishing and townifying our organs and assisting with the detoxification process, our yoga practice is for the mind. It helps to calm and balance our mind utilizing the breath as our primary focus. You do not need to have practiced yoga before, our classical Indian yoga is suitable for beginners as well as intermediate practitioners.

MEDITATION

We use a method of guided meditation called Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known. Yoga Nidra is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain making it suitable for beginners but it is also highly beneficial for regular meditators. The practitioner rests comfortably in savasana (lying down), and is systematically taken through the layers of self, leaving us with a sense of wholeness.

Some of the many benefits include stress and anxiety reduction, the promotion of emotional wellness, the development of self-awareness and greater consciousness, increases concentration span, improves sleep and with regular practice can lower blood pressure along with a healthy lifestyle.

EMOTIONAL RELEASE

Our bodies hold memories of all our experiences including all kinds of traumas. So we may be aware of certain events in our lives and we may have dealt with them at the emotional and psychological levels, but we haven’t necessarily dealt with them at the physical level. We will learn how to release these emotions that are stuck in our bodies which ultimately and powerfully hold us back from truly changing the way we see, think and feel about ourselves. When we release these old emotions, we develop new neural pathways that lead us to deeply caring about and loving ourselves which brings about a fresh energy to live our lives the way we want.

This is a deep cleansing transformational retreat which promises not only to cleanse your physical body but your emotional body and mind also. You will have an opportunity to experience the best of spiritual India as well as cleanse at the deepest levels of your being. You will come away from this retreat with a clarity of mind and a way to move forward in your own life.
