“A seven-day retreat is ideal, a 10-day one is even more beneficial.

–from the website for the film Food Matters

1. You are surrounded by a group of people with the same intention and that makes fasting so much easier.

2. You have experienced guides to help you in case you go through detox symptoms such as constipation or lethargy. 3. You are not working, cooking or taking care of kids, so you can be free to take care of your own well-being. 4. You will learn valuable information about fasting, live foods, superfoods, and herbs that will be invaluable when you want to live healthily at home. 5. You will practice yoga and meditation every day, which will relax your mind and ease your heart and increase the detox benefits. 6. Your skin will detox in the sauna, the hot tub, and with our clay therapy.

7. The peaceful setting and beautiful surroundings are ideal for a time away from all the stresses of the world.

8. Our group support circles create a safe environment to share challenges and to get constructive feedback. 9. In the private sessions with our staff, you will learn about Ayurveda and what to eat and how to exercise according to your body type, as well as how to create support systems in your life to help you achieve your goals. 10. Most importantly, you will have a lot of fun, too.

Now that you know some of the reasons why fasting at Prama is so great, here are a few supporting arguments by Dr. Neil Barnard for why a juice cleanse is so beneficial for health:

“Built into our cells are natural mechanisms that can clean cholesterol, fat, and debris from our arteries; restore health to joints that are attacked by arthritis; and bring us to a level of health that we may never have anticipated.  The key to unleashing these wonderful functions lies in the nutrients the body has to work with. The right nutrients can turn on these abilities, while the wrong nutrients – which are all too common in the standard Western diet – can leave these abilities buried forever.  The most amazing results, however, come when the body is given a complete rest from the work of digestion and assimilation of food.” That’s where therapeutic juice fasting comes in, and here, in a few words, is how it works: while the cells and bloodstream is saturated with maximum nutrients from the juice, the digestive organs take rest and are instead busy expelling toxins from the body. The end result is a complete detox and the health effects are often amazing. So, please join us at Prama for one of our yoga juice cleansing retreats or sign up for one of our individualized packages.
