Ananda Luxury Detox Retreats
Luxury Detox Retreats - Ananda Asia luxury detox with yoga
Ananda in the Himalayas is one of Asia’s top luxury detox retreats which focuses on detoxing not only the body but the mind. Everything from the Dosha specific Ayurvedic diet to the personalized plan of yoga and meditation make Ananda detox programs unique and authentic.
In ancient India, holistic living was simply a way of life. These days on the fast track to progress we can often feel out of balance and disconnected from nature and our own inner self. At Ananda luxury detox retreat you are place in the peace and silence of the mountains and are assisted to re-connect. Personalised yoga and pranayama instruction as well as a private Ayurvedic lifestyle consultation, make Ananda’s Ayurvedic vacations special.
The healing process in Ananda detox retreats involves herbal medication, massage and period liberation of toxins through Sneha Vastis (enemas with medicated oils). A special detox diet is given which includes 2 non salty, non spicy diet days to enable the body to remove water retention with light fruit, vegetable and juice inclusions to free the body of toxins. After a few days digestion with feel lighter, energy levels will rise and you’ll feel mentally clear.
Ananda is situated in the town of Narendranagar, part of the state of Uttaranchal, close to the cities of Rishikesh and Haridwar. There are frequent flights from Delhi and Mumbai to Jolly Grant Airport, Dehradun, followed by a 40 minute picturesque drive.

Why is it a Sanctuary
If you're going to detox your body and de-stress your mind, these luxury detox programs use ancient holistic healing wisdom.

Personal fitness training and yoga sessions will help to increase circulation and release toxins and pranayama and yoga nidra with assist you to re-balance body and soul.
We love Ananda's approach to eating following an Ayurvedic diet based on your Dosha. Learning what your own body loves is a valuable lesson to take away with you. For example Vata body types (air and space) lean towards light and dry food. In order to balance this oily, moist and heavy foods with tones of sweet, sour and salt must be added to the diet. The aim is to revitalize the body through a healthy approach to diet and lifestyle.
Who is it for
Ananda luxury detox retreats are for those of us who maybe haven't taken the time to think about what we're consuming and how it has an affect on our body, mind and soul.
