UPCOMING EVENTS & TRAININGS AT THE SPA

AYURVEDIC CLEANSE

May 1st - 8th, 2016

Are you ready to lighten up physically, mentally and emotionally? Offer yourself the gift of a gentle and rejuvenating cleanse under the guidance of our Ayurvedic Health Consultants and enhance your cleanse with detoxifying Ayurvedic body treatments at a world class spa!

Why Cleansing?

Taking the time to slow down and allow for gentle purification is considered a key component of self-maintenance and lasting well-being in Ayurveda. All of us inevitably end up accumulating ama (physical or emotional toxins), may it be from poor food choices, emotional challenges or environmental pollution. This traditional technique of cleansing is tailored to your individual needs and imbalances and takes into consideration the current season in order to allow the mind and body to naturally shed toxins.

Dr. Claudia Welch and Dr. Robert Svoboda combined have more than half a century of practicing and teaching Ayurveda. In this course, they will present what they have found to be the most practically essential elements of the intermediate principles of Ayurveda.
