What Is A 5 Day Wellness Retreat Like?

At Prama Wellness Center, a 5-day wellness and relaxation retreat starts with a healthy juice detox where you can enjoy fresh fruit and vegetable juice that will help your body clear any toxins or digestive stress. Our detox retreats also offers yoga classes led by experienced and well-trained instructors. These classes are fit for all experience levels, whether you’re beginning your practice or you have an established practice. We cater to your individual needs and offer guidance for your unique health goals.

You will also have a chance to experience personalized health consultations during your visit that will help you apply healthy habits beyond the retreat. You will have a chance to sit down with one of our knowledgeable health coaches who will help you understand the value of eating healthy and help you reach your health goals. At any of our 5-day wellness retreats, you can enjoy 100% vegetarian meals, an opportunity to hike through peaceful nature trails and a chance to enjoy our endless pool or sauna.

What’s Included on a 5-Day Health and Wellness Detox Retreat?

A 5-day holistic 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 many other holistic amenities such as mud treatments, cedar sauna, or vast hiking trails.
