Ongoing Pancha Karma Group and Individual Retreats are available year round  
 

     Pancha Karma is a comprehensive cleansing and rejuvenation program for the body, mind and spirit. The Pancha Karma program includes pre-purification methods to nourish and prepare the body to let go of accumulated toxins, followed by the purification methods themselves. Pancha Karma uses full-body massage with warm, herbalized infused oils, herbal steam baths, salt scrubs, and a number of other ancient healing therapies which, when taken in a specific sequence, gently and effectively purify the body.
     According to Ayurveda, health is a perfect state of balance among the body’s three fundamental energies, or doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha), and an equally vital balance among the body, mind and soul. Changes in age, seasonal changes, wrong diet, habits, lifestyle, repressed emotions and stress factors can all act to upset our natural balance, weakening our agni (gastric fire) and leading to accumulation of toxins. These toxins and deep-seated emotions build up in the tissues of the body and can lead to dis-ease if not eliminated. Pancha Karma is a completely natural form of healing, in which the body is encouraged to simultaneously let go of its excesses and retrieve its essences.
     Through purification of the subtle channels in the body, the beautiful wisdom and innate intelligence, which is inherent in every cell of our being is allowed to function. By removing blocks to this biological intelligence, the entire physiology is integrated, immunity is strengthened, and the damaging effects of aging are reversed. The aims and objectives of this science are to maintain the health of a healthy person and to heal the dis-ease of an unhealthy person. This is obtained by restoring the balance of the natural processes in the body. The ancient texts praise Pancha Karma as a seasonal rejuvenation treatment for ensuring balance year in and year out.

Historically, 7 days are recommended to experience a more complete rejuvenation experience, however, due to popular demand, we are now offering 3 day mini rejuvenation retreats!
