One-week Panchakarma Detox Summer Retreat in Villa de Leyva, Colombia
- While most detox programs are designed to cleanse only the digestive system, Panchakarma targets ALL cells in the body, making it a very thorough and scientific method.

About This Event
There is a place up in the Andes mountains where the air is still fresh, the water abundant, and the forests pristine. A peaceful community of small farms, beautiful waterfalls, colonial towns, and long spells of silence. In this idyllic setting, we have built a healing center, where travelers from all over the world come to rest and restore through the ancient practices of Ayurveda and the communion with nature through fresh, vibrant foods and rejuvenating treatments.
Panchakarma may very well be one of the most effective purification and detoxification treatments you will ever encounter. Panchakarma, which in Sanskrit stands for five therapeutic actions, is a cleansing and rejuvenating program that targets body, mind and consciousness. Although the therapeutic measures may appear quite simple, its effects are extremely powerful. Suffice it to say that Panchakarma cleanses not only the digestive track but the WHOLE body including all organs and even the mind.
We invite you to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city, the stress and traffic jams and join us for a unique Detox and Rejuvenation Retreat set against the magic of ancient forests and the beauty and tranquility of the Andes mountains.
