Detoxifying is an important part of the Ayurvedic routine. Disease prevention and wellness are the natural results of regular seasonal cleanses. Join us for a special cleansing mono-diet using khicharee and fresh greens, which is nutritious and at the same time gives a break to the digestive system.


Renew the body and mind with Yoga, sauna detoxification, inspiring Ayurvedic workshops, and the ancient practice of fasting on kitchari. Kitchari, a mix of rice and mung beans, is easy to digest, purifies the digestive system, and cleanses the body of toxins, offering the perfect spring start. Ayurvedic treatments and consultations will also be available for booking throughout the week.


The Ashram is the ideal place to detox, in a natural and secluded spiritual environment with like-minded people, where students experience the benefits of the supporting therapies offered in the retreat. The program’s schedule includes daily gentle yoga practice, pranayama, relaxation, walks in nature, meditation, chanting, and most of all, rest and quiet.

Registration Information

Tuition price includes a daily 1-hour talk on Ayurveda and healthy lifestyle; one Ayurvedic consultation with a certified Ayurveda Practitioner; and one Ayurvedic Bliss therapy of 2 hours, which includes Abhyanga (warm oil massage), Sirodhara (steady stream of warm medicated oil to the third eye), and Swedhana (herbal steam treatment). (The consultation and body therapy is valued up to $400).
