Yoga Detox Retreat
The Yoga Detox holiday is our most popular yoga retreat. Whether Yoga is new to you, or you are an accomplished Yogi, you will enjoy and benefit highly from my specific detoxifying blend of Yoga postures. The level of instruction is personalized to suit each individual.
On a daily basis you will have two meditation sessions and two yoga classes including asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises) and relaxation techniques. You will be served breakfast, a light lunch and dinner, all based on simple, but pure, healthy, vegetarian yoga food.

To help the detoxifying process of your body, we use special detox devices, foods and natural supplements to help eliminate accumulated toxins. Yoga has a very detoxifying effect on the organs, and our yoga classes focus on poses beneficial to the detox process. Diseases are born in the body, and their root is often over toxicity (body pollution caused by heavy metals, pesticides, preservatives and other foreign toxins). More and more diseases are caused by our modern lifestyle therefore cleansing is an essential physical process that brings health and happiness.
The detox not only happens on a physical level. You can also expect a body, mind and heart detox!
