This program is an ideal opportunity to deeply cleanse and rejuvenate your body and mind in a safe and supportive environment.
The program is designed to create a transformation not only on the physical level, but also on the mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. Herbal supplements, yoga, and meditation will aid in this transformation. With the practice of both yoga and fasting you will achieve a higher degree of physical, mental, and spiritual awareness as the detox takes place and toxins are eliminated.
We begin gradually with a few days of raw food followed by fruit and vegetable juice fasting, and end with a raw food diet for the last days of the program. The process is supported by detoxifying herbs and supplements. You will also enjoy special yoga classes and lectures on nutrition.
Colonics can be arranged through reception during this program. Nutritional consultations are also available.

o All organ systems of the body become cleansed
