10 Days Fasting&Yoga Retreat in Julian Alps
Inner Cleansing Journey offers fasting retreats for the people who need a detox from unhealthy eating habit and who wants to get rid of toxins from the body. Fasting is an old technique for healing the body and soul and it is the top priority at this retreat. We'll fast 4 days by drinking fresh organic juices, made from four types of vegetables; beetroot, carrot, parsley, and celery. Each client will get their own backpack with full fasting equipment: enema, toothbrush, scraper for the tongue, skin brush, thermos and a big towel for the sauna.
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.
- Four days we'll fast by drinking fresh organic juices, made from four types of vegetables; beetroot, carrot, parsley, and celery. All our local organic vegetable juices are cold pressed and retain 95% of their natural nutrients and enzymes. Vegetables can help eliminate yeast and fight off foreign entities. They also contain high levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals which protect healthy cells and eliminate unbalanced or infected cells.
- Once a day we will drink a juice made from lemons, oranges, grapefruit and kiwi. Tea herbs and spring water are also very important. All beverages we will drink warm. Teas as senna, nettle, sage, mint, and chamomile kill yeast and help purify the body. Each client will get their own backpack with full fasting equipment: enema, toothbrush, scraper for the tongue, skin brush, energetic glass and a big towel for the sauna.
- Daily meditations, Hatha yoga, discussions, and workshops will help you mingle with your "new fasting friends" and exchange thoughts and experiences in order to bring yourself beyond body and mind limitations.
- During the day we will do everything together in the spirit of teamwork in the community. You will have the option to participate in plenty of activities or simply rest in peace and read a book.

Menu/CuisineFor four days your food will be liquid, but full of vitamins, enzymes, natural fruit sugar and other important substances for living and renovating the cells. Last two days we will eat smooth cooked soup and rice to get used to eating hard food again. A strict fasting will take for four 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 kičeri, which is a traditional, beneficial Indian dish, which Ayurveda puts on the first place of healthy eating. 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. From the third day, we will fast for four days. We will drink only juice made out of beetroot, carrots, and cucumber. All cleansing teas are provided. We will fast four days for a reason. After the third day, 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 three hours. Mono juicing is easier for the body to digest.
Very important will be the seventh day when we will come back on hard food. Breakfast will be a self service. 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.
