Fasting is not always a blissful experience, as you begin to detox you can experience physical as well as mental, emotional and spiritual issues. We will be there to support you through this process and by the end of the fast; you will feel better for these days you have gifted to yourself. We want to be able to offer everyone the opportunity to experience fasting and the health benefits it brings.

We believe giving the body a break from daily life and food helps to bring about a more healthy and vibrant you. It’s a good opportunity to give up smoking, coffee, meat, dairy or unhealthy eating, and drinking habits. During fasting, we will do a gentle Hatha yoga practice suitable for beginners and those recovering from injury and back problems plus enjoyable guided meditations as well as other meditation techniques to help support your healing and transition to a healthier lifestyle. The juices and broth are all made from in-season organic fruit and vegetables.
