All ages are welcome as participants.

Dead Sea is a unique element of nature at 400 meters / 1200 feet altitude below sea level. It’s the only place on the globe where the crust of planet earth recedes deep. It’s sunny nearly all year long, with average 5 rainy days a year. The air is miraculously dry and unpolluted. People travel from all corners of the world to experience the wonder of the Dead Sea: the famous healing powers of the minerals rich environment, the mere sensation of floating in an armchair position in the salty water, or for visiting the ancient Essene site of Qumran Caves.
This fasting retreat is made of a variety of activities and classes on the program. The only ‘must-attend’ activities are the morning juice and the check-in discussion with Dr. Cousens and your fasting supporter. For the rest of the day, you can make up your own schedule according to your interest, from detox and healing activities, cultural and musical sessions, master classes, meditation, or nature trips.
Yoga classes will be held two times per day. The beginner class will be led by Moshe Ganah to practice light yoga with Ashtanga, while the intermediate class will be led by Shanti Cousens, practicing the flowing form of Kali Ray TriYoga. You will also learn detox practices, breathing techniques, and great TriYoga asanas.
You will be offered many layers of detox included in the program:
