Boost Immunity, Rejuvenate the Lungs and Cleanse the Intestines
with İpek Yılmaz and Ulli Allmendinger (MSc. Ayurveda)
How did you feel this morning? Refreshed and energized, or rolling out of bed with puffy eyes, and wanting more sleep? To a great extent, how you feel is directly linked with your body’s ability to deal with toxins. 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 4-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 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 cleanse, our diet will be mainly plant-based (except ghee) and consist of soups and 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, medicinal teas and oils as well as AyurYoga and breathing practices.
