The most common way to achieve better health is to find out what is wrong with us and then treat the symptoms. But in our programs, we focus on preventive health. We build better health by detoxing the body, relaxing the mind and by creating an environment so that your whole person can thrive and heal holistically. Together we create a higher frequency of being where optimum health arises naturally. So, come join us for this 10 day retreat to experience the power of our holistic rejuvenation program. Join us to experience the effectiveness of combining juice fasting, yoga therapy, power foods and meditation.


This comprehensive yoga detox program is unique, even revolutionary. It is designed to both create better all round health and relaxation. It is designed to give you tools to take charge of your own physical and emotional health. To be truly independent. It is especially designed for those who want to feel more energized, struggle with weight problems, need help kicking bad habits, want to eliminate toxins, or simply wish to feel less stressed.


Our 10 day detox program will give your mind and digestive system a well-deserved vacation. You will free up energy to heal. You will feel more energized and nutritionally satisfied. Why? Simply because raw juices, which are brimming with vitamins, minerals, enzymes and healing phyto-nutrients, will allow the body’s organs to detox, rest and heal. So, while the digestive organs are expelling toxins, the cells in the body will be rejuvenated by absorbing the powerful micro-nutrients the juices provide.


The Prama Wellness Center is very pleased to have Dada attending this special program. It is a great opportunity to learn directly from the teacher who helped start the Prama Wellness Center. Dada Dharmavedananda has been a naturopathic therapist and yoga master for over 40 years. Dada currently has Wellness programs active in about 14 countries. He has successfully given individual treatment to many thousands of people in over 50 countries.
