Fasting & Detoxification Programme


Poor diet, lack of exercise, and environmental pollution, as well as challenges at work, in relationships, from social media and more are leading to an increase in mental and physical disease. Our body and mind need regular maintenance, especially when we live in towns and cities.  Fasting and detoxification are a sure way to regain our vitality and zest for life. For many, this programme has been a life-changing experience and bestows a long-lasting feeling of well-being.

You will not know you are fasting!!! Daily vegetable and fruit juices as well as a broth in evening stay all hunger pangs. Each day yoga and meditation keep the body energised and the mind calm. Ayurvedic massage, colon cleansing, and herbal extracts all help the body to slowly detoxify and purify, bringing a feeling of blissful mental and physical well-being.

The juices are made and served fresh at the table. Orange juice kicks off the day and then a selection of vegetable and fruit juices are offered at intervals till evening.  Pineapple, mango, apple, watermelon, carrot, cucumber, radish, celery, beetroot and coconut are just some among the many. A hot soothing vegetable broth in the evening closes the day.



By combining the practice of yoga, meditation and fasting you experience transformation not only on the physical level but also on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels. The calm and peaceful atmosphere of the Ashram, along with the daily practices heal the body and soul. It is also lots of fun!! You will be among a hugely supportive group of like-minded people, many of whom become life-long friends.

Just some of the benefits:

  • Aids weight reduction
  • Improves sleep patterns
  • Strengthens cardio-vascular health, reducing high blood pressure
  • Eases stiffness and joint pain in rheumatoid arthritis sufferers
  • Regulates the digestive system. Improves eliminative functions. A healthy digestive system is a pre-requisite for good health
  • Stimulates metabolic function and anti-ageing hormones. Promotes rejuvenation and longevity.
  • Enhances brain function, possibly preventing changes associated with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
  • Boosts the immune system, reducing free radical damage and risk of cancers



And this is just the tip of the iceberg!! The mental and spiritual benefits are equally profound. Your senses sharpen, your memory and ability to concentrate improves, bringing increased clarity of mind and greater awareness. You gain a sense of calm along with increased will-power and an ability to make better decisions and take better control of your life.  A sense of joy and a greater enthusiasm for life develops.

“Since attending the Fasting and Detox course I never felt this way before and never thought it would be possible. So clear in mind, much quieter, inner peace, and happy with my body and weight, and confident about the future”.
