About This Event

Cleanse on the inside. Glow on the outside

Wellness: (n) a choice to take responsibility or the quality of one’s life.

Here at Akasha we take this pretty seriously, because we practice it every day. This 4 Day Reset Programme to cleanse the body, rejuvenate the soul & refresh the spirit. Our bodies have amazing natural detox abilities. Many of our major organs, most notably our liver, are designed to cleanse us of impurities—evolving over millions of years perfecting these traits. But our systems are not prepared for the onslaught of post-1950 synthetic toxins that we ingest, breathe, and absorb through our skin or those that we eat in our food on a daily basis.

So this is a programme designed to support our natural detox abilities.

This programme includes gentle yoga sessions, a complete 3 Day Juicing Diet to cleanse the system, supplements, pro-biotic drinks & support from medical doctors as part of our team and a step by step guide to everything that we’ll be eating & drinking during your cleanse, why and what it does to your body that you can also apply when you return home.

Why Juicing?

A juice cleanse supports the body’s natural detox processes, clears the diet of sugar, caffeine, refined foods, and other foods and substances that can deplete energy, and jumpstarts a more healthful way of eating.

Some of the benefits of short cleanses include clear skin, weight loss and reduced bloating, as well as fewer headaches.

This isn’t suitable for you if you’re pregnant or nursing or you have diabetes or chronic liver, kidney, or gallbladder problems. The same goes if you take certain prescription medications, especially anticoagulants or antiplatelet medications. Juice cleanses or fasts can reduce the level of blood proteins and alter the way prescription drugs are metabolised in the body.

 

Included:

4 Days full days juice cleanse, up to 6 daily juices / smoothies all organic and local produce.

1 complimentary 30 minute massage

Morning Gentle Yoga Practice and Evening Meditation Practice.

All probiotic drinks, supplements such as Multivitamins, Omega 3 & unlimited infused alkaline water & detox teas.

Why Retreat?

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

Connect with nature and remember my spiritual self is timeless Zoe
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
