Retreat Overview

Cleanse Your Mind and Body as You Feed Your Heart and Soul

In the same way that a room collects dust and clutter and needs regular cleaning, the body and mind can collect toxins or blocks that create imbalance or sluggishness in our systems, eventually leading to ill health. A regular inner clean up and the development of positive lifestyle habits are key to maintaining health and wellbeing at all levels.

In this retreat learn Hatha Yoga, traditional detox cleansing practices, and mindfulness and mantra meditations to activate and purify the body and mind. Also, gain modern nutritional tools to support healthy eating, strong digestive powers and balanced body systems and mental states.

  • Hatha Yoga to activate all the body systems
  • Talks on Wholesome Food, Yogic diet, Green Juices, Fermented Foods
  • Heating and cleansing breathing exercises
  • Detox Cleansing Practices
  • Mindfulness Meditation to let go of the old patterns
  • Ana Yoga – conscious and nutritious cooking and eating

Anahata Specialist Teachers are all well trained and knowledgeable in their field. They will lead you through this event in a respectful and gentle manner, inspiring you to go deeper and explore what you find.

Coming from German descent, Nityatma was born and raised in Brazil, where he completed his Bachelor of Film and Television degree. After traveling the world, his enthusiasm for Holistic Nutrition and a desire to provide value to both people and the environment, brought him to New Zealand to study, where he found home and a balanced combination of people and environmental values. Holistic Nutrition quickly developed into much more than a career opportunity; it became his passion.

When time is taken to reconnect to one’s essence through a holistic lifestyle, learn about whole foods preparation, the plant and food cycle, and the basics of nutritional science, it becomes the single best investment in one’s own health.
