We will take only 4 - 6 people at once.

Andro Fini Skaleras, 62 (writer) I am a retired person. Many years ago I made quite a few cleansing, from weekly to monthly, just by the water. Of course today I would not repeat this, but I often tried to repeat the fast, but I failed in any way. Until I met Bilka, an excellent nutrition expert. With the original approach to healthy and therapeutic fasting she lead me with such lightness, that I did not feel the slightest crisis for seventeen days, even in the first three days, which are usually the most difficult one. I'm grateful to her.

For five days your food will be clear liquid, but full of vitamins, enzymes, natural fruit sugar and other important substances for living and renovating the cells. Last three days we will eat smooth cooked soup and rice to get used to eating hard food again. A strict fasting will take for five days. All juices we drink are made out of ecological fruit and vegetables.

On your arrival, you will get a warm soup prepared with local and ecological vegetables, with oats and basmati rice. Very simple and light. For a wonderful dinner, you will get a khitri, which is a traditional, beneficial Indian dish, which Ayurveda puts on the first place of healthy eating after fasting. It balances all three doshas (our constitutional vital energies); ground the flying Vata, calm the fire in Pitta and warm the coldness in Kapha.

The second day, we will eat only liquid food, like soup and juices to prepare the body and the colon for fasting.

We will drink only juice made out of beetroot, carrots, and cucumber. All cleansing teas are provided. We will fast five days for a reason and cleaning colon every day with enema. The third day of fasting, the liver and kidneys are just beginning to be cleaned. We will juice together in a spirit of teamwork and we will teach you how to juice in a correct way. We never put two vegetables together. Between two juices we will wait for one hours. Mono juicing is easier for the body to digest.

Very important will be the eighth day when we will come back on hard but still liquid food. During the whole retreat, we will eat cooked food for lunch and dinner, only the last day, before the departure we will teach you how to prepare vegan mayonnaise and vegan beef tartar. All food is ecological and from the local production.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health.
