Program

In this program, you will undergo cleansing through yoga practice and organic liquids that will surely leave your body cleaner inside and more energetic outside. Keeping the body free of toxins, free radicals, and other nasty things that can end up in your insides is essential to maintaining a healthy life. Most importantly, consider this wellness retreat as a loving gift to yourself. Om Shanti Yoga and Holidays is the first yoga center that offers detox for some years and has a lot of experience now.

Detoxifying the body through yoga brings additional benefits which cannot be achieved through other means of detoxification or diet alone. Also, detoxification through yoga improves the function of internal organs and removes impurities from them. In this six-day seminar, three and a half days will be a cleansing process with smoothies, soups, green smoothies, juices, herbal teas, and water. On the first and last day, you will have some light vegetarian meals, salad and smoothies, and fruits to begin and end the detoxification.

There are asana classes with meditation and pranayama every morning and afternoon to detox the body and mind. The days will start with drinking warm lemon water to give a kick to the lever. Next will be one and a half hours of morning Hatha yoga practice, with asanas, pranayama, and meditation sessions. You will then get to enjoy a morning smoothie, followed by group sharing and inspiration-evoking activities. After this, a mid-day smoothie will be served, and participants will be given their daily free time to enjoy relaxing leisure activities in the retreat center or explore the gorgeous beach nearby.

For one of the days, you will be able to enjoy an oil massage featuring special flowers and herb essences to detoxify the skin. During the evenings, you will come back to the center for another set of an hour and a half of Hatha yoga practice. Soup will be the evening meal, and after that, mantra and kirtan sessions will be available. You also have the option to spend your free time basking in the silence of the mountain village surrounding the center.
