More about the Retreat

Most people subject their bodies to harmful lifestyles and diets that inhibit the body's ability to cleanse and heal. Eating a poor diet of processed foods clogs up the digestive system with waste materials and prevents our bodies from absorbing vital nutrients, which can lead to health problems over time. Fasting allows an incredibly effective cleansing process to take place in the body that reaches down to each and every cell and tissue. All your organs receive a well-deserved rest and a much-needed clear out. After 24 hours of not eating, the energy used for digestion is redirected towards clearing out waste matter, dead and damaged cells, blood gas, microbes, parasites and other toxins from your system. Without the chemical interference of stimulants like caffeine, nicotine, sugar and alcohol, your body is able to find a better natural balance.

A professional nutritional adviser will support you throughout the fasting process and optional one-to-one nutritional consultations will also be available for anyone wanting to go into more depth regarding their personal health story. During the fast you will consume organic fruit and vegetable juices, spirulina and vegetable broth to provide you with the vitamins and minerals you need to nurture your body, and detoxifying herbs will aid in the cleansing process. Psyllium husks will provide cleansing bulk and help stave off physical hunger. Self-administered enemas are done twice daily to help the body to eliminate toxins. Daily yoga is complemented by fun and informative classes on nutrition and healthy eating, sustainable living, meditation and happiness. (Fasting is not safe for people who are very underweight, clinically obese, pregnant, diabetic, suffering from kidney disease or certain cancers. Please contact us if you have any concerns about your health that you would like to discuss further before arrival).

Helen Noakes, co-director of the Yoga Health Mandala and founder of HN chavutti massage training, will be leading the yoga classes for this particular retreat. Helen hosts yoga teacher trainings, intensives and seminars in India, Europe, Scandinavia and the USA. Her passion is sharing Scaravelli yoga that has brought many gifts and learnings to her life.

Scaravelli inspired yoga is revolutionary and offers inspiring tools to deepen whatever style of Hatha yoga you practice. You will be guided into a beautiful journey of waves and spirals into your spine which can lead into a slow and safe release of tension as well as a new and profound learning of experiencing movement. Vanda Scaravelli quotes in her book 'Awakening the Spine' . "There are no beginner or advanced students " Everybody can benefit from this approach to yoga...from absolute beginners to experienced practitioners.
