After our hugely successful Autumn Cleanse Retreat in Byron Bay this month, we are glad to organise another authentic Ayurvedic Detox (Panchakarma) retreat in mid-October this year. With our last retreat, we found that people felt so much better – maximising the benefit of their treatment – as a result of not having to cook their own food and having enough time to rest. Also, the yoga, meditation and different Ayurvedic rejuvenation treatments, along with a personalised diet, all helped to optimise the effectiveness of the detox program. We have received much positive feedback from those who took part in this wonderful program.
Below are the details for the upcoming program:
Date: 14th October to 23rd October 2016
Venue: Gunnebah Retreat Centre, Nobbys Creek, NSW
Attractions of the retreat:
A complimentary full consultation will be provided prior to the retreat in order to plan your detox program, which will be completely personalised to cater for your individual health needs.
It is recommended that you take the detox herbs or medicated ghee at least 5 days prior to the retreat in order to prepare your body and mind for the detox.
At the retreat, there will be at least one Ayurvedic doctor present at all times to monitor the detox process closely and provide special additional Ayurvedic treatments when required. This specialised care is separate from and oversees the treatments provided by the other trained therapists.
Treatments will include Abhyanga (Ayurvedic oil massage, Herbal paste massage, steam bath, Sirolep- herbal head treatment, Netralep- eye treatment, Karna Purana- ear treatment, Nasya- Nasal/sinus treatment, Sirodhara, Vasti- enema treatment, Virechana- Purgation treatments) which will be decided by our team of Ayurvedic doctors before the retreat.
You will receive at least one or two different therapies per day by our experienced Ayurvedic massage therapists and doctors.
An expert chef will prepare three nutritious Ayurvedic meals each day in accordance with your personalised detox diet plan.
Food used for cooking will be primarily organic and fresh.
There will be a yoga class every morning and meditation in the evening on most days.
You will have opportunities to learn the secrets of a healthy Ayurvedic diet from the chef.
Ayurvedic doctors will conduct several workshops and talks on Ayurvedic lifestyle, wisdom and daily rituals during the retreat.
Although the venue can accommodate more than 40 people, we will take only about 15 people for the retreat so that everyone can be well looked after and we can provide a friendly and intimate family environment.
