The primary focus is preparing our mind and body to the subtler forces within us and to trigger our dormant healing abilities, so that we can use it to heal ourselves.
Most common yoga classes are Hatha based. We offer a range of different yoga styles, including but not limited to Restorative, Yin, Kundalini Yoga and Vinyasa flow. We have different instructors so you can experience different yoga and meditation styles. If you are new to yoga, this is your opportunity to try something new!
Meditation and mindfulness
There are different styles of meditation sessions for you to experience and practice. There are also daily mindfulness classes led by a mindfulness certified instructor in which mindfulness is explored and practiced.
Available treatments include ayurvedic procedures such as Shirodhara, tissue massage (full body or part-body), and ayurvedic head massage. These are all to help relieve the tension in your shoulders and the whole body. All treatment providers are highly trained and experienced.
Our creativity classes give you the opportunity to explore your creative side. Creativity classes are a great way of reconnecting the right brain’s creative side to balance the left’s logical and reasoning. Classes may involve painting feelings or inspirational mandalas, gratitude rock painting, and/or any other creativity classes that participants would enjoy. These are all for you to take home to remember your experiences!
Participants are strongly recommended to not use any electronics during this program. This significantly helps to restore a healthy brain and the activity of the central nervous system. There are scheduled times for the use of electronics once per day for the purpose to connect with loved ones at home.
We believe that one of the major points for rejuvenation of the body and mind is through the foods that we consume. Therefore, we offer an abundance of fresh fruit, vegetables and whole foods to our participants. We use only seasonal products and where possible products that are grown or sourced locally. All dishes are prepared and cooked on the premises, with care and loving attention from our talented chefs. We use lots of herbs and spices to bring flavor and variety, plus serving a selection of dishes with a variety of colors, textures and flavors. All the meals (or juices) are included in the cost of your retreat. We serve three meals every day. You can select from a wide range of dishes, sampling each dish. We also offer you the opportunity to try juicing – this is included in the cost of your retreat. You can choose to juice for one meal, one day or one week, instead of eating. Each day you decide whether you want to eat or juice, you have the flexibility to make your detox program personal for you. The foods that we do not serve include: sugar, bread, dairy products, salt, coffee eggs, and tea (except herbal and green teas), alcohol and sweets. These foods all place extra stress on our body systems, so by cutting them out for duration of our program or longer, the body has the opportunity to heal and rebalance itself. Each meal is nutritionally balanced according to Ayurveda doctor’s considerations, so will include vegan sources of protein, and a carbohydrate option. Our juices are designed to give the digestive system a well-earned break and allows the body to divert energy towards any unhealthy cells which allow them to repair and rejuvenate with ease. For our natural fresh juices we using only organically grown fruit and vegetables. There is also opportunity to add some herbal powder according to Ayurveda doctor recommendations.
