Thus this retreat allows participants to adopt a healthier life style, and to replicate at home all that was learned.

Emotional stress as well as negative thoughts produces toxicity, bringing both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system out of balance, weakening the immune system. Yoga practice is an important tool in mental and emotional cleaning, helping individuals to relax, suppressing negative emotions and thoughts and to face life in a more positive, happy way.
Fasting is one of the oldest methods used to fight disease, allowing the necessary conditions in our organism for self-healing. To fast literally means abstaining of all, or some, types of food and drink. During fasting, the energy usually spent in the digestive process is steered towards healing, repair and self-regeneration.
Liquid fast will create a quick toxin release from the cells to the circulatory system and, if not eliminated, these toxins may cause cellular damage. Anti-oxidants are present in vegetable juices and have the ability to bond to toxins, flushing them out of the body without causing any damage.
The tissues and organs of our body must be in an alkaline environment (as opposed to acid). An acid organism is a toxic organism. Micro organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and cancer cells thrive in acid environment. A diet rich in vegetables, legumes, oils such as olive oil and coconut oil, nuts, seeds and fruit will alkalize and balance the system.
By cooking foods we are destroying all enzymes present. Knowing that these molecules are catalysts of all chemical and biochemical processes as well as being vital to our health, we advocate a raw, alkaline, vegetarian diet.
