Vitality Now Retreat is a 7 day Detox to reawaken your Natural Vitality. The main focus of this retreat is to empower the digestive and transformative force of the body, known in Ayurveda as Agni. This focus allows us to better digest all that life presents us with, physical or emotional, and turn these experiences into growth and evolution. For increased results the cleanse will combine a range of techniques from Ayurveda and Yoga, to Naturopathy and Chinese Medicine, creating a truly holistic detox experience.

Many modern detox systems place their focus on removing toxins from the body and have a general disregard to the negative effects strong detox procedures can create. The system I have created for Vitality Now borrows from the wisdom of Ayurvedic detox, because Ayurveda places a high importance on balancing the functional and controlling forces of the body. After all, it’s usually an imbalance of these functional and controlling forces, that created the toxin build up in the first place.

The common benefits of Ayurvedic Detox are as follows

  • Retuning of the brains master control system, the pituitary and pineal glands, encouraging hormonal control and enzymatic processes to return to balance.
  • Heals intestinal villi so absorption and digestion dramatically improve.
  • Restores proper eliminative function of bowels, urinary, respiratory and sweat systems. If these are not working great then after a detox you are likely to build toxins up again quickly.
  • Balances hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia so energy is more consistent over the day.
  • Cleanses the liver, flushes bile and restores the body’s ability to maintain a balanced blood environment.
  • Unblocks and restores flow to the lymph and its glands, brining lustre to the skin and hair.
  • Resets the digestive fire so that balanced hunger and thirst can return to ease.

Each day we cover a different aspect of wellness education so that you leave the detox with the wisdom to sustain the vitality we create together. The base detox program is gentle with an emphasis on restoring digestive power and vitality for life. There are extra options available to increase detoxification, deepen relaxation, and specified bodywork treatments once you have had your holistic consultation with Kimmana.

During the 7 day Vitality Now Retreat, you will do a daily practice of yoga and meditation, take Ayurvedic herbal formulas that support the detox process, and eat a special diet that can be varied for the individual. There will also be different educational talks each day which can vary depending upon group requests.
