Ashiyana's Detox and Rejuvenation Retreats
Over the years, we have observed that our guests at Ashiyana are more or less subject to the same effects of a modern-day lifestyle lived at great pace and with ever-increasing demands: Long working hours, time-pressures, multi-tasking, poor diet, lack of sleep, and so on. The specific symptoms of these pressures are multi-various - stress, burnout, weight issues, digestive disorders, diabetes, insomnia, heart conditions, respiratory disorders, various addictions, and many more.
We have evolved an approach towards health and wellbeing which is deeply rooted in the ancient wisdom of yoga and yoga therapy, embracing the fact that we all manifest differently, and therefore have specific imbalances requiring unique and individual attention.
In order that we may “feel” healthy, there is generally the need to undertake a two part process, first to rid ourselves of the harmful toxins which inhabit our cells and limit us, and then to regenerate ourselves with a return to equanimity - we might call this healing ourselves.
The journey of healing and returning to balance necessarily begins with a thorough consultation with one of our Doctors or “Elemental Yoga Therapists”. In deed this consultation process is on going, since discussion, observation, and then adaptation to circumstance are key to the process. Yoga can become your "inner medicine", once you know how to listen to what your body is asking for.
For those who are experiencing health issues, or simply wishing to enhance their current level of wellbeing, we offer three deeply nurturing retreats each with a different approach to detoxification and rejuvenation. Each begins with a consultation process that leads to your personal program, embracing your individual needs.
Soblime Wellbeing Detox and Rejuvenation Retreat with Dr. Shikha
Yoga and Ayurveda Detox with Dr. Yamuna
Urban Antidote Rejuvenation Retreat with Ashiyana's Yoga Therapists
The three retreats have a common intention, which is for you to attain optimum health, vitality and equanimity through the appropriate mix of Yoga, holistic therapies, deep relaxation, good nutrition, and life balance.
The first two begin with a direct focus on detoxing the body in a systematic way, whilst the third - Urban Antidote is a more traditional Yoga retreat, with a focus on deep rest and relaxation, whilst also uncovering the emotional issues which so strongly affect overall wellbeing. They are all available as 7, 14, 21 day options. Generally the longer your stay, the deeper the possibility for you to detoxify and feel fully rejuvenated.
Following the retreats you will have a 'range' of tried and tested practices that work for you. This puts you back in the position of responsibility for your own wellbeing - which is ideal for the pressures of modern, daily life.

"Now back in wintry North Germany, I am warmed by memories of my recent trip to India. Although my visit was short, my experience at Ashiyana was deeply gratifying. I had the good luck to be able to attend a few "drop-in" yoga classes with Chris. Not so much the style of yoga, but the gentle instruction, assistance, and friendly atmosphere, all conducive to relaxation of body, mind and soul, supporting the process of opening up and gaining more body awareness, have left a lasting impression on me. I find myself, without any conscious prompting, correcting my posture (i.e., tucking my chin in or imagining the invisible cord at the top of my head (!)). And this only after 3 sessions! Thank you again, Chris! The beneficial results of this yoga experience have inspired me to begin a regular class here. Who knows, maybe I will become a yoga teacher as well and visit you as a guest trainer in a few years !!! This ambition just oozes with delightful energy !
May your beautiful vision gracefully blossom to reality !
