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


Retreat Overview

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 meditation to activate and purify the body and mind. Discuss nutritional tools to support digestive health and explore the importance of the relaxation response, sleep hygiene and restorative practices to strengthen immunity and digestion for optimal health and well-being.
