Petrichor Farm Yoga and Detox Retreat Indian Program

This Farm Yoga Retreat is a restorative program that aims to rejuvenate and holistically relax your mind, body and soul by merging the regenerative functions of yoga with the regenerative principles of Permaculture in following the true yogic path of ‘farming’ both our outer and inner landscapes. Besides being a system of agricultural and social design principles, permaculture also provides us with ample thinking tools for an era of change. Petrichor actively seeks out ways to practice these principles, while balancing the needs of the farm and community, and this beautiful philosophy can be seen in many ways throughout the land. This retreat entails daily yoga practice and daily practical permaculture workshops and activities.

The program includes:

  • One hour morning and evening yoga class every day
  • Meditation and breath work every day
  • One hour of Karma yoga every day (consisting of farm permaculture activities/chores, working with earth and plants, learning how to grow your own food as therapy to de-stress and reconnect with oneself)
  • Plant-based organic farm-to-table meals
  • Fresh healthy juices, smoothies, and herbal teas
  • One basic permaculture tour/ presentation or Bamboo workshop
  • One nature trail through the Nepali community leading into the beautiful Ambiok Forest

The yoga therapy at Petrichor Farm is a mix of Hatha, breathwork and body alignment techniques. All programs and the retreat will be led by Sweta and Sidhartha, certified teachers and designers.

Food

One's holistic wellness is a result of what one eats and hence foods that heal must be consumed. The principles of permaculture follow the principles of the slow food movement – ethical food production, ethical food consumption and connections to all aspects of life. The nourishment Petrichor Farm serves to their guests and volunteers is plant-based, seasonal food, all grown lovingly by them in their organic permaculture gardens. They aim to preserve cultural cuisine and so they are preserving the food plants and seeds, domestic animals and farming within their eco region.

The food served during the retreat is satvik and plant-based, which works as a wonderful alkalizing detoxifier to the system. They also offer separate raw, vegan and ayurvedic items, upon request.
