Yoga & Detox

Hatha Flow
If you prefer a gentler yoga experience, you should try one of the resort’s classes in Hatha Yoga. This style is all about finding your balance. The word Hatha is from Indian Sanskrit and is translated to mean sun and moon. These celestial bodies symbolize the duality of life, much like Yin and Yang. In practicing Hatha you will learn the Asana’s (positions) and Pranayama (breathing) techniques that will help to align your chakras, allowing you to access their energy to promote health and happiness. With time and devotion you will find your love increasing, inspiring you to continue your practice.


Detox Programs
If you are looking to refresh your whole body, the Yoga Retreat offers a full detox program. There are two lengths of detox programs you can try at the retreat. The first is from three to seven days and the second more intense detox is from ten to fourteen days. Whichever detox you commit to, you will feel rejuvenated and revitalized. The retreats detox programs will also help build your immune system so you can stave off disease and live a healthier life.
A detox will give your digestive system a break so your body can focus its energy into repairing your system. You will heal your vital systems, enhancing your quality of life. Your detox guides will also help you reach a mental place of peace and tranquility so that you can also heal yourself mentally and spiritually. The staff will be there to help you every step of the way, but it is also up to you to decide what path your detox will take. You will be given the tools to start a new lifestyle so that you will be able to continue your journey to healthy living after you leave the retreat.

Preparing for Detox
During your detox your body will go into a state of rest but you will need to be physically and mentally prepared for the transition. Before your cleanse, you can prepare by eating smaller meals, gradually getting your body used to eating less. You should focus on eating fruits and vegetables while avoiding high-fat foods, sugars, alcohol and caffeine.
To prepare your mind it can be helpful to read about the steps of the detox and talk with others who have done it before. Telling friends and family about your plans can give you the support you will need and help you clear your mind of any barriers.
You can choose to do your pre-cleanse at the Yoga Retreat, where they will provide you with raw natural foods.
