  When Breath Turns Into Air...

An Ayurvedic Fall Detox Retreat to Boost Immunity,

Rejuvenate the Lungs and Cleanse the Intestines


With Ulli Allmendinger, MSc. Ayurveda and V. Şafak Uysal

October 26-29, 2018, Yücesan Çiftliği, Sakarya


   How did you feel this morning? Refreshed and energized, or rolling out of bed with puffy eyes, and wanting more sleep? Chances are that it was somewhere in between. Many of us are feeling below par—putting up with headaches, bloating, fatigue and dull skin.


   To a great extent, how you feel is directly linked with your body’s ability to deal with toxins. Normally, the body can cleanse itself without assistance but in today’s modern world, the constant bombardment of toxins overwhelms our body’s ability to cleanse itself. Therefore, twice a year, according to Ayurveda, we need to stop and detox, in order to allow our body’s natural healing mechanism to take over.


Come and join this unique opportunity for a 3-day Ayurvedic Fall Detox Retreat, which will help heal the digestive system as well as important detoxifying organs such as lungs and large intestines. The fall season is an ideal time to clear away heat toxins from the summer season and prepare the body for a healthy winter season, filled with great immunity, strength and vitality. It is also the season of the metal element in Chinese medicine, and a time to let go of what is no longer needed, and surrender and move inwards towards our essence.


Throughout this mini-Panchakarma cleanse, our diet will consist mainly of kitchari, the famous Ayurvedic detoxification dish based on mung beans, Basmati rice, vegetables and digestive spices. This forms the foundation for our specific cleansing techniques that include herbs, medicated ghee and oils as well as AyurYoga and breathing practices.


Note: This cleanse in particular is suitable for people that have never done a cleanse before. It is gentle and easy, and supported through the group process as well as movement therapies and meditations in the retreat. For lectures and classes, there will be English/Turkish translation available.


The retreat starts Friday, October 26, in the evening with dinner at 19.30 and finishes Monday, October 29, after lunch, around 14.30. You will prepare for the detox at home for 5 days prior to coming to the retreat.


Cost: 1500TL (including 3 nights accommodation, all detox meals, detox supplies and packages, daily guided yoga and meditation, as well as teachings on Ayurvedic nutrition, detoxification and lifestyle routines).

Early-bird price (paid by September 30): 1400TL


Register: Please register by emailing either Ulli at info@ulli-ayurveda.com or Şafak at freeyogaretreat@gmail.com. Space is limited to 15 participants since this is an intimate group process, so it is recommended to book your place early.


Location: Our retreat will be held at the beautiful Yücesan Ciftliği, Boğazköy, Arifiye, Sakarya. It is approximately a 2-hour drive from Istanbul by car. There is also a daily train schedule from Pendik to Arifiye, where a pick up to the venue can be arranged.
