Additionally we’ll adopt a morning dinacharya routine, each attendee receiving a personalized cleanse kit to accompany them throughout the process.
Our goal while cleansing is to rest and restore the mind and body. Our mornings will begin with a gentle vinyasa practice to balance our doshas, followed by a nourishing meals and afternoon yoga nidra guided meditation. We will enjoy peaceful hikes through the Berkshire hills, an on-site sauna with a cleansing herbal steam, workshops to deepen your Ayurvedic knowledge and exercises in self and group reflection. We end our retreat with a powerful new moon ceremony to set intentions and welcome in a new season.
