The practice of yoga helps to keep the body fit, healthy and disease free and helps to develop a calmer and balanced life. Yoga being one of the most beneficial practices in health is an integral part of the Bodhimaya retreat. Bodhimaya offers one-to-one consultations with their yoga expert, as well as a dynamic session first thing in the morning and a restorative class in the evening to help you experience the transformational effects of this ancient practice.
These sessions gently introduce beginners to a solid foundation of practice to build upon and offer more experienced yogis the time and space to deepen their asanas. Throughout the retreat, the yoga expert will be on hand to give you all the time and support you need to explore this life-changing discipline. During the retreat, we offer a meditation programme, as well as twice-daily yoga classes, which will help you gain peace of mind and clarity.
The body has its own detoxification system and Bodhimaya gives this system the support and rest it needs to do its job properly. Chemicals in the air you breathe, the water you drink and the food you eat, as well as poor dietary choices put a great amount of stress on the body, which can develop into illness and disease. The solution to this is simple: detox and start to live life in a healthy and balanced way.
Bodhimayas retreats are the perfect way to hit the reset button and begin again. It is not just for people who need to start living more healthily; even those who follow a good diet gain huge benefits from detoxifying the body. The Bodhimaya detox retreat is a great way to fine tune an already healthy lifestyle, optimize wellbeing and rejuvenate the body.
Both the intensive detox and the functional food program can help you lose weight in a healthy and manageable way; balance your hormones, promote a healthy immune system and healthy respiratory function; promote regeneration and have anti-ageing benefits; lower stress levels; boost cardiovascular health; optimize the performance of the reproductive system; and help you to manage chronic problems such as digestive issues, autoimmune conditions, depression and anxiety.
This three-phase detoxification process is based on scientific research and is designed to detoxify and rejuvenate the body in the safest and most effective way possible. Individualized to your bodys exact needs, it is highly targeted, and yields exceptional results.
After a delicious welcoming last supper on the evening of your arrival, the three-day initial cleanse begins, starting each morning with a cup of hot lemon brought to your room. After the morning yoga session, you have your first juice, followed by two more juices throughout the day and a healing broth and light meal in the evening. Each juice and soup is created especially for you. Unlike generic juice detoxes, your unique needs are targeted with a carefully selected choice of ingredients and supplements.
Over the remaining three days of the retreat, healing, nourishing and rejuvenating foods are slowly introduced. This is an incredibly important phase of the detox, which should be broken correctly to gain lasting benefits. Meals are carefully balanced to include foods that can help restore the levels of good bacteria in your gut and carefully rebalance the delicate ecosystem of the body. All the ingredients are grain-free, gluten-free and sugar-free; they are also both nutritious and delicious. Carefully designed to meet the needs of your body, the meals will leave both your taste buds and your body feeling happy and invigorated.
During the retreat, the team will help you to explore a healthier and more balanced diet. Nutritional talks and cooking demonstrations throughout the week will give you all the knowledge and tools you need to live a healthier life when you return home. Plus, at the end of the week you will be given an individualized nutrition plan to take home. Based on all the information we have about you, we will devise a comprehensive bespoke program outlining what foods, supplements and lifestyle choices will optimize your health and well being.
Designed to give the body a very gentle cleanse, this program consists of three healthy and nutritious meals a day, all carefully created to support detoxification, balance the ecosystem of the body, reduce inflammation and optimize health. With this carefully prepared detox program you surely are on your way to a healthy week with lasting effects to your well being.
The end of the retreat is not the end of your care. Having identified your health and wellbeing needs through in-depth, one-to-one consultations, Bodhimaya will send you home with a detailed plan of action to help you achieve lasting results and we offer a complementary aftercare consultation, as well as phone and email support. It is a level of care and support that is unparalleled.
