Seeking a nurturing detox facilitated by a leading Ayurvedic doctor and with world-class yoga and treatments? With over a decade’s experience in hosting yoga retreats, for the first time, ONEWORLD retreats introduces
Ayurveda Detox at their destination retreat in Bali.
Ayurveda is a traditional medicine system derived from ancient India and defined as Science of Life. According to many, Ayurveda provides the tools to listen to the body’s own wisdom which in turn encourages balance, health and longevity.
The seven-day Ayurveda Detox & Yoga retreats are facilitated by Dr. Aparna, B.A.M.S, M.D, Ph.D. and a team of practitioners. The programme consists of an Ayurvedic medical consultation, twice a day yoga and meditation, workshops, Ayurvedic treatments as well as Ayurvedic meals, drinks and teas – all offered in a tranquil Balinese setting.
‘Ayurveda is the ancient vedic way of living the life in the most harmonious way possible‘ says Dr. Aparna. ‘As Ayurveda is a traditional Hindu medicine system, it makes sense to bring it to Bali, the only Hindu island in Indonesia. I believe that the next wave of wellness will be focusing on programmes that teach us how to listen to our body’s own wisdom more deeply, just like Ayurveda does.’
During the retreat, yoga classes are led by certified teacher Wayan Partawan and are tailored around the elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Morning classes are more dynamic while evening classes are mindful, meditative and restorative. Ayurvedic treatments are centric to the retreat so participants can expect mind-melting massages and healing therapies. All therapists have been personally trained by Dr. Aparna and the products used are pure and effective.
Nutrition is key to Ayurveda and Dr. Aparna and Executive Chef Miles Belfield have carefully curated a menu of healthful meals according to the ‘food as your medicine’ Ayurvedic philosophy. In the Ayurvedic cooking class guests can learn first-hand how to create nourishing meals at home to rebalance their doshas and will also receive a personalized take-home nutritional program by Dr. Aparna. A central element of the retreat is the detox day – a time of quietude and reflection with the option to switch off all digital devices and enjoy the meals in pure silence. Other highlights are the powerful Agnihotra cleansing fire ceremony, the Mrityunjaya Homa ritual, nature walks and a purification ritual at a Balinese temple.
The six-nights/seven days Ayurveda Detox & Yoga Retreats are held throughout the year at
ONEWORLD retreats, an authentic Balinese resort in Ubud surrounded by lush rice terraces. Ideal location to discover the benefits of living according to one’s constitution and depart feeling clear and balanced in mind and body.
ONEWORLD retreats was founded by Claude Chouinard and Iyan Yaspriyana. Since 2004, thousands of people have participated in the yoga and wellness retreats. In May 2016, they will open their second retreat destination ONEWORLD Ayurveda in the central hills of Ubud.
