It’s been a while since I last wrote a blog post. This is because I have been on retreat in the South of France with Bodhimaya teaching on our detox retreats. An intense week, but also one of the most amazing and transformative weeks for both the clients of the retreat and also the staff.
1 Detox Retreat, 60 juices, 36 functional food dishes, 25 massages, 5 nutrition workshops, 18 nutrition consultations, 24 yoga classes, 12 meditation classes and more.
Bodhimaya isn’t just the run of the mill retreat company. From the moment you book with Bodhimaya your journey begins and this journey is like no other. Bodhimaya provides a luxury retreat experience that has been designed to cover every aspect of your health and wellbeing. Our aim is to bring your mind and body back into a state of balance through the use of yoga, meditation and a highly individualised detoxification programme. Our detox retreat programmes are effective, purely science based and tailored to the exact needs of your body, we are the only detox retreat that uses this highly individualised approach to detoxification and rejuvenation.
Why A Detox Needs to Be Individual
Detoxification is a process that affects all the systems of the body. At Bodhimaya we believe detox is a key part of anyone’s functional medicine health programme. Our world is becoming an increasingly toxic environment and the process of getting rid of these toxins places significant demand on the body.
A functional detox and a completely individualised detox retreat experience, enhancing specific pathways in the body is key to improving health.
The dietary management of a detox programme is a complex issue. As a client of Bodhimaya, your current sign and symptoms, medical conditions, digestive health, lifestyle and motivation all play a role in the design of your detox retreat.
At Bodhimaya we encourage the use of fasting to promote metabolic and genetic changes that support the rejuvenation process. Fasting will be prescribed depending on the individual, but may be something as simple as a larger gap between dinner and breakfast.
We also encourage the use of yoga and meditation as part of a detox retreat to promote physical and emotional wellbeing, we therefore provide yoga and meditation classes and 1-1 yoga therapy.
