In the same way that a room collects dust and clutter and needs regular cleaning, the body and mind can collect toxins or blocks that create imbalance or sluggishness in our systems, eventually leading to ill health. A regular inner clean up and the development of positive lifestyle habits are key to maintaining health and wellbeing at all levels.

In this retreat learn Hatha Yoga, traditional detox cleansing practices, and mindfulness and mantra meditations to activate and purify the body and mind. Also, gain modern nutritional tools to support healthy eating, strong digestive powers and balanced body systems and mental states.

  • Hatha Yoga to activate all the body systems
  • Foodie topics include Functional Nutrition, Wholesome Food, Green Juices, Fermented Foods
  • Heating and cleansing breathing exercises
  • Detox Cleansing Practices
  • Mindfulness Meditation to let go of the old patterns
  • Ana Yoga - conscious and nutritious cooking and eating
  • Practical session in the kitchen on fermenting, preparing healthy meals
