The body naturally digests and releases a small amount of toxins on a daily bases but times have changed and this process is being obstructed in two big ways:
These are the two major reasons why the body organs and channels start to become fatigued and prematurely older, producing ailments and more rapid aging.
This is also the reason for people suffering from such ailments as allergies, skin conditions, migraines, digestive problems, constipation, weight issues and pain in the body.
This is true especially if you live in a big and fast metropolitan city, which generates much more toxicity and stress than the countryside.
This is now the ‘new normal’ for all professionals, busy people or people who travel a lot and it’s taking its toll on the mind and body at a rapid speed.
The feeling you get from deeply cleansing your system is euphoric, as extreme amounts of energy start to build up as toxins leave the body.
And this time also becomes a time to release deep-seated emotions and anxiety, which you have been carrying around for years. This release gives the body lasting lightness and clarity of mind. You will be able to see the results very rapidly, especially with your mood and your face, which loses many years of premature aging.
This is how you know your body is reaching complete purity.
As well as experiencing the cleansing and detox process, during the weekend you will also be learning:
Another unique aspect of the weekend will be sleeping at Yogi and Yogini’s home where the weekend takes place. Normally people stay in hotels close to their home when they put on a retreat but for this cleansing experience everyone sleeps at their home.
One reason for this is for you to experience “an Ego detox” by experiencing a deep letting go of control by having no resistance to sharing your space with others. Detoxing isn’t just about the body letting go of toxins but also the mind letting go of habits or thoughts that don’t serve your life.
The experience of sharing, sleeping and enjoying your living space in this way is also to tap into the energy of simple living and letting go of expectations and attachments to needing to always be in ‘ultra comfort.’
The other bigger reason is to be able to monitor your progress and to be of support to you at all times. When people stay in a hotel they are exposed to a diverse environment which can be over stimulating and negative to the detoxing process.
Cleansing the body in the Ayurvedic Indian medicine system means cleansing out and detoxing all of the body parts, organs and channels, which is not in the same way most people are accustom to.
The traditional ways of fasting, juicing and eating lightly will only remove some waste from the body, but not most of them. In this yogic way of cleansing we will be detoxing the inner organs and channels as well as all of the organs of the senses.
The senses are over used and become blocked and tired over time, which leaves the mind and body exhausted as well as the digestion very weak. Also nearly no one ever cleanses or even knows how to cleanse the organs of the senses.
We use all of our body inside and out every moment of our existence so it makes sense to clean and maintain absolutely every inch of it.
All throughout the day, each activity and practices that we go through will be of a cleansing nature.

Individual authentic high end Japanese beds will be provided for basic comfort as well as organic luxury products for the hair, body and face.
We will be providing the clothing for the weekend, which will be beautiful linen tunics and kaftans. This is so your mind can be free of thinking of what to bring with you to wear.
This will add an additional layer of cleansing for the mind and stress management.
But do bring a set of yoga clothes for the practice sessions. We will provide yoga mats.
Cell phone and computer use will be reduced to 15 minute increments, totaling 1 hour throughout the day.
This is not to deprive but to help balance the excesses and to detox from over use of electronics.
If you are looking for an even deeper cleanse, then we suggest you prepare your body and mind for the cleansing process by eating a vegetarian diet from as early as a week before or even 2-3 days before.
Avoiding alcohol, reducing caffeine and not consuming processed sugars will add an even deeper dimension to your detox.
We will also be sending out a consultation questionnaire sheet for you to fill out prior to arriving so you can let us know some basic things about your health, intention for doing the cleanse and any other things that may need our attention.
