The detox in Morocco is a five day juice-fast detox and colon-cleanse. Body, mind, and spirit can become sluggish and run down due to the fast pace of life and certain challenges life brings. But it is truly amazing what the body can do on a liquid diet of nutritional juices for five days - it's a wonderful rest for the digestive system and a chance for the body to rest and heal. This, together with daily yoga, meditation, and being in a healing environment is the perfect retreat for body, mind, and spirit.
All rooms in the riad are luxurious, en suite, and with air conditioning. Towels and drinking water are provided.
Sunday is arrival and departure day. On the arrival day a light typical Moroccan dinner will be served at about 18h00. The juice fast will officially start on the Monday morning (the day after the arrival day) at 07:45. You will be on a liquid diet Monday to Friday. On the Saturday, you will eat light breakfast, lunch and dinner to break the fast. On the second Sunday, you will have a light breakfast before departure.
A juice fast and colon cleanse is done primarily to cleanse, heal and strengthen the digestive system. A healthy digestive system is essential for over-all health. Once the digestive system has been optimized, the body is better able to absorb the nutrients it needs from a healthy diet, and to discard any toxins it doesn't need. The detox cleanse is a liquid only fast - fruit and vegetable juices (organic as much as possible), vegetable broth, herbal teas and plenty of water. The exclusion of solids from the diet ensures a rest for the digestive system, and helps the body to flush itself out. In addition to the liquids, you take bentonite clay, psyllium husk, and various and specific cleansing herbs and supplements to assist the cleanse. Enemas can also be used to facilitate additional detoxing and cleansing of the bowel and colon. Many people have come with unresolved health issues and have left with varying degrees of healing. Others have arrived lacking in energy and have left full of vitality and zest. Some have arrived with lots of questions about their life and have changed the direction of their life path. Some have wanted to lose some weight, and the program has set them well on the road to changing their body shape.
The majority of people have a build-up of hardened toxic deposits on the intestinal wall which the body battles to get rid of. These deposits (mucoid plaque) can impede the necessary absorption of nutrients through the intestinal walls, preventing the body from obtaining what it needs to be healthy and strong. Even with a healthy diet, the body may not be absorbing enough goodness. This detox retreat focuses on removing such deposits and restoring optimum intestinal functioning, which leads to over-all good health!
There will be one yoga free day and an excursion will be arranged to the mountains.
It is Lauren's hope that, in a retreat setting, through the practices of yoga and meditation and through the process of detoxification, others may feel a deep sense of belonging and enter a space of wholeness. Prior to her entry into the world of yoga, therapies, and detox, Lauren worked in the fields of psychology and education for special needs. She is an on-going student of nutrition, yoga, Ayurveda, and in the spiritual tradition of Advaita Vedanta (non-dual yoga philosophy), as well as in the Buddhist meditation technique of Vipassana.
The yoga detox retreat is held at an amazingly beautiful and luxurious riad (a traditional Moroccan house or palace with an interior garden or courtyard) in the heart of Marrakech. It is an intimate environment and exclusive for each group. It is an inner city sanctuary - you leave the chaos of Marrakesh behind you as you enter the gates of the riad.
