About the retreat
Experience a revitalised version of yourself with Dr Mehul and Gertrud Keazor on the spring Cleanse Retreat, as they guide and work with the principles of yoga and ayurveda to cleanse the body and mind.
This includes breath work, a cleansing diet, massages, personalized Ayurvedic consultation with Dr Mehul, nutritional workshop and woodland trails. All practices and activities restore balance.
With the five point practice of Astang Ayurved as our base Dr Mehul will look at how to improve digestive fire with an Ayurved diet, a daily regimen, and cleansing kryias.
We explore how proper dosha plays an important role in improving health conditions and regulating emotions and how to balance our dosha through daily routine and positive intentions to quieten and refocus the mind.
Dr Mehul provides three Ayurvedic treatments that include;
a full-body 30 min oil massage, churna swed, shirodhara to nourish the skin and underlying tissues, eliminate toxins, heal muscle aches and tension;
a one-on-one consultation with diagnosis of your fundamental physical constitution according to Ayurveda, where he will discuss types of oils, spices, vegetables, fruits and grains which help to balance your constitution. Special emphasis will be on the spring period.
Ayurveda recommends that we detoxify our bodies at the juncture of two seasons in order to remove built up ama, or toxic sludge, from the previous season. Doing so keeps our bodies and minds ready for the upcoming seasonal elements.
As spring comes to an end you might be thinking about cleaning out closets and drawers or scrubbing paintwork. According to the ancient texts of Ayurveda, in spring we also need to clean out kapha from our bodies. During the winter months, kapha has accumulated in the form of excess slime, mucus and phlegm.
We might be noticing post nasal drip, stuffy sinuses, cough, breathlessness, sluggishness, lethargy, weight gain or a tendency to fall asleep after eating. These are all symptoms of kapha buildup. As spring comes and the snows melt, kapha liquefies. This could result in spring colds or allergies. So during the spring season we need to expell excess kapha.
