Ananda Luxury Yoga and Detox Retreats
Luxury Yoga and Detox Retreats - Ananda Yoga and Ayurvedic Detox
Ananda in the Himalayas have superb luxury yoga and detox retreats. New to their offering this year is the Yoga Detox Package which uses Hatha Yoga cleansing techniques to detox in a natural and effective way. In the type of detox holiday, Shatkriyas like Ayurveda as also used to balance the three doshas in the body.
These cleansing techniques alongside yogic asanas, pranayama and meditation result in a highly effective detoxification. The intensity of the program increases with the length of guest stay and detox programs are available for 7, 14 or 21 nights.
Ananda is home to celebrities and royalty alike who visit to reconnect to nature and restore mind, body and soul. 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, you retreat to the peace and silence of the mountains and are assisted to re-connect.
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. Car transfers from either the airport or train station can be organized on request.
Why is it a Sanctuary
Everything from the well thought out detox programs, authentic yoga instruction to the palatial surroundings, Ananda really is a 5 star wellness resort. Working with your specific body type, you'll gain a higher understanding of the self and how to maintain a healthy weight. All programs are personalized to your own Dosha and you'll feel guided throughout your stay.
This new detox focuses on Shatkriyas or yogic cleansing techniques. Aspects of yoga asanas, pranayama, meditation and cleansing techniques are offered alongside an Ayurvedic diet to balance the doshas. This way of detoxing has superb results in toxin elimination, revitalization and harmony.
Ananda take an ayurvedic approach to food consumption based on body type. 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.
