Yoga Detox Program Goals

The Yoga Detox program is designed to offer you a complete experience of purification and renewal of body, mind and spirit. The main objectives of the program are:

Detoxification and purification: Through conscious nutrition, specific treatments and detox activities, the program aims to eliminate toxins accumulated in the body, promoting general well-being and vitality.

Deepening your yoga practice: Asana lessons will allow you to improve your individual practice, learn the correct positions and understand the specific benefits of each asana. You will have the opportunity to work on specific chakras and associated organs, promoting the rebalancing of the nervous, hormonal and lymphatic systems.

Meditation and spirituality: Yoga meditation sessions, both dynamic and seated, will help you achieve a state of inner peace and serenity. You will deepen your meditation practice and learn techniques to improve concentration. Topics such as the role of devotion in yoga and how meditation improves physical and mental health will be addressed.

Conscious eating and Detox: During the retreat, in the days before and after the Detox, a sentient, healthy and nutritious diet will be provided in line with the principles of Ananda Marga. Vegetarian/vegan options will be offered and participants’ specific dietary needs will be taken into account. Experimenting with healthy cuisine suited to the program will promote overall well-being. On the central days of the program an extraordinary gradual juice detox program will take place.

In addition you will have short but inspiring insights into Dharma, spirituality and consciousness, the importance of mantras and kiirtan (dynamic meditation), the different branches of yoga (Raja Yoga, Astaunga Yoga, Karma, Jnana and Bhakti Yoga) and the importance of devotion in the practice of yoga and meditation.
