If you feel that yoga is way more than a mere practice of stepping on a yoga mat for each day, then join this Lighten Up yoga and detox retreat. Yoga is a lifestyle, and here, you will find a way of living that attunes your body and mind so that you can access the deeper realms of reality and your deepest purpose and fulfillment. The detox program also provides you an important means of clearing accumulated waste and toxicity from the mind and the tissues, encouraging optimal health. Come and lighten up your life!
You will be accommodated for 5 nights at Ayurveda Health Retreat in a shared room or private room. Ayurveda Health Retreat is an ideal place to write, read, sleep, rest deeply, receive treatments, nourish and reconnect to yourself.
When you are registering for this retreat, please specify whether you will be joining for just juice cleanse or kitchari cleanse. Either practice of cleansing is considered a vital part of an Ayuredic lifestyle. It provides an important means of clearing accumulated waste and toxicity from the mind and the tissues, encouraging optimal health.
These days, a periodic cleansing regimen is more vital to health than ever before. Your bodies are being asked to process a seemingly endless barrage of harmful inputs such as environmental toxins, processed foods, unresolved emotions, and psychological stress.
Over time, these stresses can cause toxicity to build up in the system, deposit in the tissues, and compromise your health. A periodic cleanse helps to clear these accumulations from the body and mind, so that we have unobstructed access to your self.
If you are in the habit of taking caffeine, tobacco products, alcohol, or any recreational drugs on a regular basis, please gradually reduce or eliminate their use in the days leading up to your cleanse. Similarly, reducing your intake of fast foods, processed foods, meat, dairy, refined sugars, and sweets ahead of the start date will be very beneficial.
By juicing, you give your digestive system a break, while at the same time giving your body all the nutrients it needs. By bypassing the need to digest, the nutrients enter your bloodstream, quickly giving you lots of energy naturally. The energy that would otherwise be used to digest and process food can now focus completely on healing and revitalizing the body.
In the absence of solid foods, but with the flood of nutrients from fresh juices, the body cells begin to release the toxins that they were holding on to and replace them with nutrients from fresh juices. This is a time of cleansing where repairs, healing and nourishment take place.
Kitchari has long been used to nourish babies and the elderly, the sick and the healthy, during special times of detox, cleansing, and deep spiritual practice. It includes a simple porridge-like blend of beans, rice and many healing spices. Kitchari is considered in Ayurveda to be a “perfect food”, having many nourishing, kitch-healing, and cleansing benefits.
This particular cleanse is based on eating a monodiet of kitchari to support digestion, elimination, and the body’s natural detoxification processes. This regimen supports the physiology by slowing the flood of harmful inputs and by providing the body with an important opportunity to rest, recuperate, and repair itself.
You will enjoy a kayaking trip during this retreat.
You will have your cleansing retreat in Stanton Street Yoga's hometown of Alachua, Florida. This area is abundant with crystal clear turquoise water springs, thousands of acres of hiking trails, and the retreat center is conveniently located in the cute and quaint down town area.
