Program

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. 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 retreat days, you will be able to enjoy an oil massage featuring special flowers and herb essences to detoxify through 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 free time basking in the the silence of the mountain village surrounding the center.
