More about the Retreat

Many 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, 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, barley grass, vegetable broth and mineral supplements to provide you with the nutrients you need to nurture your body, as well as detoxifying herbs that will aid in the cleansing process. Psyllium husks will provide cleansing bulk and help stave off physical hunger. Self-administered organic coffee enemas are done once daily to help the body to eliminate toxins. Twice daily yoga are 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).

More About our Yoga Teacher

Jemima Croker journeys to India each year to deepen her practice, exploring the healing powers of asana, pranayama and meditation. The foundation of her teaching is that physical Yoga is the first step on an inward journey; that feeling the interconnectedness of body, mind and spirit within our own selves helps us to realise our connection to others, our environment and the elements that make up the universe.

Physically, it is a dynamic but sensitive practice that aims to enhance the prana (energy) throughout all the channels of the body, leading the body through the fundamentals of an effective Hatha Yoga practice and exploring unfamiliar pathways that generate a flow state and circulate energy. The practice is based on four main principles that cultivate strength, flexibility, stability and relaxation whilst removing stress on a physical and emotional level; move actively, move from the centre, move with flow and breathe naturally.

Jemima believes that with practice, Yoga cultivates the embodied recognition of body, mind and spirit as one, and that this physical experience of union naturally gives rise to qualities of awareness, acceptance and interconnectedness for you to share with the world through your interpersonal relationships.
