Come and join Anja Hettich on a yoga and detoxification retreat in the breathtaking island of Crete, Greece. In this retreat, 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 our insides is essential to maintaining a healthy life. Most importantly, consider this wellness holiday as a loving gift to yourself.
You will be accommodated in shared double rooms in Om Shanti's retreat center. The center is an old stone house with a garden that is nice and refreshing during the summertime. They have a total of five double rooms that have all been restored in the original style of the house. They are open to either yoga and wellness holidays, or any planned personal vacations.
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.
Anja, also known as Apinaya, is an alternative healer, teacher of the new consciousness, and qualified Shivananda yoga teacher. She has also been studying with Iyengar yoga teachers for quite some time. She started her own yoga practice more than 20 years ago and has been teaching for more than 12 years in Crete where she has lived for the last 25 years.
