More on 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.

On this retreat guests will also have the option of following a healthy eating plan instead of a fasting diet. The menu will be gluten free and dairy free and guests will still have the option of taking part in the daily yoga and nutrition classes. A few days of fasting can also be integrated into your program. This option is for people who do not want to fast for the entire week. Just email us for more details.

NB: 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

Kailash Lim has immersed himself in yoga, meditation and bodywork in India, Thailand and elsewhere for more than 30 years. He has been teaching yoga since 1999 in Southeast Asia, India, Sri Lanka, Canada and Europe. He is the resident teacher at a major spa resort in Thailand.

Kailash sees yoga as the art and practice of awakening the intelligence of the body, using movement, posture and breath to bring the heart and mind to stillness. He has an eclectic style, inspired by the Iyengar-adapted approaches of Erich Schiffmann and Dona Holleman. Kailash is known particularly for being able to convey a clear understanding of the body mechanics of movement and posture.

In addition, Kailash also offers Chi Nei Tsang, a unique form of abdominal and visceral massage. This works to release deep physical, energetic and emotional blocks in the abdominal area, helping to restore optimal digestive function, balance and health.

Kailash brings empathy, depth and calmness to his classes from decades of experience, guiding and supporting each student, regardless of their level, to explore the edges of their practice.
