I enjoyed the silence and not worrying about what time I was eating and what I was making for dinner. All my daily tasks were thought out for me and I was able to fully enjoy the classes, my surroundings, and the facility. The staff was amazing and the food absolutely wonderful.

5 Day Juice Cleanse & Yoga Retreat | May 19 – 23, 2021


(Shared or Private Accommodation)

Our 5-day holistic “in-person” retreat is the perfect choice for those who want to experience the benefits of a full wellness retreat without committing to the full 10 day holistic retreat. A 5-day wellness retreat offers a unique way to relax and revitalize the body, mind and spirit. It helps the body release toxins and offers a haven away from the stress or boredom of your everyday routine.

Yoga Classes for All Levels: During our 5-day retreats, our experienced yoga instructors teach a gentle style of yoga. Small class sizes allow for a deeper focus on individualized care and instruction, so that whether you’re new to the practice of yoga, or you already have an established practice, you can experience the health benefits.

Delicious & Healing Vegetarian Meals: While you are on your 5-day retreat, we will provide a carefully selected menu of pure vegetarian meals. We prepare vegetarian dishes that offer the combined benefits of enhanced digestion, removal of toxins and balanced nourishment. We serve a varied vegetarian menu that can help you recover from several health challenges while providing a thorough cleansing of your colon and other digestive organs.

Health Consultation: Your 5-day health detox retreat can be greatly enhanced by personal consultations with our health coaches who understand individual needs and help you apply holistic health techniques for deep relaxation, release of toxins from the body and sometimes weight loss. Our health consultants are experts you can share your health issues with in confidence. They will offer you professional advice, tips and detailed information on how to adopt healthy lifestyle habits and changes that will enable you to live stronger and healthier.

Juice Detox
: As a main focus of and first step to our 5 day juice detox retreats, Prama provides different types of juices and smoothies to aim at ridding your body of toxins and improving your digestive system, internal organs and entire bloodstream. This is particularly essential if you have been diagnosed with any condition that affects your liver, kidneys, colon or other vital internal organs. The juice cleanse gives your body a chance to process the heavy foods it may be carrying while maintaining nutrition, which is why it’s our very first step of any 5 day health and wellness retreat.

Other Holistic Options: Our 5-day retreats also include “free” time that you can use to take advantage of our vast hiking trails.

Note: For the time being, shared accommodation is for two(2) persons who are a couple or friends and can stay in one room together.
