Program

In our current climate and lifestyle we believe that detoxing through fasting is not only recommendable, but absolutely fundamental if we want to live healthy long lives. Fasting makes it possible to eliminate all the harmful substances that we have accumulated over the years due to bad health habits and excesses in our diet, as well as those absorbed from environment in which we live. As our emotional and physical bodies are interconnected, when we begin to fast, emotions that have been lying dormant for a long time are released, allowing us to be liberated from old feelings weighing us down. Our bodies carry an unimaginable wisdom and by getting out of its way, through the simple act of ceasing to eat for a few days, we allow it a space where it can begin to heal. We do not need to do more than that, only create the right conditions and environment for the healing to take place. Fasting at home can be a challenging experience as we are surrounded by our usual temptations - fasting away from this in the supportive company of the group is what makes our retreat not only an easier, but thoroughly enjoyable process. We believe in creating a space for self-healing, a place where people feel cared for and looked after, and after which they return to normal life feeling empowered and motivated to make conscious choices and manifest the life they desire.

There is a full program that you can attend, such as yoga classes, hiking, meditation, 5 Rhythms dance, sun-gazing, and nutrition workshops.

Sungazing

This is a guided meditation using an ancient Toltecan technique of gazing at the sun during the safe times of sunrise and sunset. It is a beautiful, gentle and loving meditation on being in the present moment, bringing our sense of awareness to our breath and body.

Yoga

You will practice Kundalini, Hatha and Yin yoga whilst at the retreat. We start the day with a kundalini sadhana, which includes pranayama and meditation, working the body on a more energetical level. Each day there will then be a second yoga class of Hatha or Yin yoga. In hatha yoga, the asanas will focus on detoxing the body's organs, aiding in the fasting process, as well as giving you an opportunity to listen and connect with your body.

We will look at different breathing and pranayama techniques. Yin yoga will be a more relaxing and meditative class, holding the asanas for longer periods of time working the body at a deep tissue level, increasing circulation and flexibility. All classes will be at all levels.

Nutrition class

During the retreat, there will be classes with a nutritionist and naturopath. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about nutrition, as much about the process during the fast as well as your normal dietary routine. Get some great tips for making some simple changes into your diet for increased energy and wellness.

Movement and dance workshops

In the body, there is an emotional memory that often is blocked. In the retreat we use movement and music to unlock some of these memories to feel lighter, less restrained and freer. We use techniques both in group and solo work to go deeper into this experience, connect with others and parts of ourselves forgotten or hidden.

Meditation

Throughout the retreat, you will experience different guided meditations from vipassana, sungazing, and mindfulness. Techniques of concentration and breathing from ancient cultures are incorporated to create a space between our thoughts; with simple practices, we can incorporate these empty spaces of everyday life and give our rushing minds pause for a moment.

Hiking

The house is surrounded by beautiful trails and paths leading through woodland, forests, and mountains, and each day we will go on a hike. Contact with nature is also part of the nutritional side of self-care; walking and breathing give us a high level of inner nutrition. The sunset requires a climb and each evening we will do this hike and practice sungazing at the top with a stunning view of the valley below.

Massages

Thai massage

Thai massage (which in Thai means "old-fashioned") is a type of massage -or perceptive massage- that consists of deep stretching. This form of bodywork is usually performed on the floor in comfortable clothing that allows movement.

Ayurvedic massage

An ayurvedic massage is made with hot essential oils and provides many benefits such as symptomatic relief of stress and the generation of positive emotions to make us feel better both physically and mentally. It also serves to relieve pain, improve the immune system, increase circulation, stimulates and strengthens the lymphatic system, increases the ability to eliminate toxins, and opens the flow of life force in order to cleanse and revitalize the body.

Chi Nei Tsang

The Chi Nei Tsang is a Taoist method that consists of a massage for the internal organs that is applied directly to the abdomen. The intestine is considered the place where food waste is processed as well as an emotional waste of the person since it has its own "Brain" (Enteric Nervous System), which means that the abdominal area is frequently blocked. To release blockages and restore the normal flow of energy in the rest of the organs, we will apply this ancestral technique.
