Our 3 day yoga detox retreats are Friday to Monday and we follow the same schedule as all our other well-being yoga retreats, however, the food programme is an introduction to detoxing with raw and warming foods depending on the season. Our chefs are experts in detoxing and with this knowledge they bring to you an introduction to food types that you would incorporate into a detox programme that is more intensive. The yoga helps to cleanse the body and mind also and we have treatments to help support this process. This retreat introduces you to what to expect for the 5 day detox retreat in a relaxed and friendly way, so if you wish to go further you already feel supported.
A combination of energizing and restorative yoga, meditation, pranayama and delicious detoxing foods provided by our fantastic chef leaves you feeling more energized, increased mental clarity, improved skin and muscle tone, brighter eyes and glowing skin, supple joints, increased flexibility and a sense of emotional balance, grounding and peace.
