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

Jed’s first encounter with yoga was on the hilltops of Vagator beach in Goa, India.  At that time she began to study and practice Mysore style Ashtanga Yoga. It was 1992 and she has practiced and made yoga a part of her life ever since.

Jed has spent many years in India where the teachings really get under your skin.  She likes to pull together many different influences and aspects of yoga in order to offer a potent practice that delights the senses and awakens the participants to the mystery of the magical design that we call life. The bliss that yoga offers through the asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation allow one to open to yoga beyond the physical.  Jed also likes to explore the philosophy of the ancient texts and the teachings of the Buddha and show how these ancient arts can lay the foundation for a happy healthy life.
