This program is tailored to your specific needs and “imbalances” with custom designed meals, therapeutic treatments, and movement classes that will cohesively reintegrate your body, mind and spirit.

Our 400 acre retreat center is the perfect setting to let go of the mental pressures and daily responsibilities that can too often hinder our body’s ability to breathe and heal. Immerse yourself in serenity and relaxation with 5 nature trails for walking and hiking, a peaceful pond for canoeing or quiet contemplation, and gazebo spaces throughout the campus.

As you leave the stresses of your daily life behind, your mind and body begin to settle into a calm, relaxed state. This is where cleansing begins.

During this 4 day cleansing retreat your schedule will rotate through special ayurvedic therapies and techniques such as: relaxing and cleansing massage and bodywork therapies, health consultations and instructional classes, light and fresh meals, and gentle yoga classes. Through a change in diet and environment, toxins will begin to be gently removed from your body, allowing you to release inhibiting habit patterns and thought processes, and enabling you to find your “center” of health again—re-settling into a state of well-being and harmony. To aid in this, you will also have free time to explore the beautiful grounds, spend quality alone time in your favorite activity or quiet reflection, or connect with the intimate group of 10 attendees.
