Ananda Spa is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas in India, within a hundred-acre Maharaja’s Palace Estate. It is surrounded by forest and faces the spiritual town of Rishikesh and the Ganges. There are frequent flights from Delhi International Airport to Jolly Grant Airport in Dehradun and then a picturesque drive to the resort in a private car.
These luxury detox retreats use Aromatherapy, Hydrotherapy, Ayurvedic Pancakarma techniques as well as Yoga, Meditation and an Ayurvedic diet to cleanse. You’ll receive personalised fitness sessions, which focus on cardiovascular exercises and stretching to improve circulation and thereby assisting in the mobilisation of toxins. A Dosha based diet of gourmet, organic cuisine will also help bring you back into balance.
Ananda luxury Detox retreats run from 5-21 nights and if you wanted to stay longer, we can make it happen. You may be feeling sluggish and unhealthy or toxic and want to improve your clarity and vitality. You want to improve your digestion and intake of healthy nutrients, creating more stamina and better focus and concentration. Of course, the extra added benefit is glowing skin and a lighter body!
Ananda Detox retreats in the Himalayas in India focus on cleansing not only the body but the mind. Everything from the Dosha specific Ayurvedic diet to the personalised plan of yoga and meditation make Ananda Spa detox vacations 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 ourselves. Personalised yoga and pranayama instruction as well as a private Ayurveda lifestyle consultation, make Ananda’s healthy holidays so special.
The healing process at these luxury detox retreats involves herbal medication, massage and period liberation of toxins through Sneha Vastis (enemas with medicated oils). A special detox diet is given 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.
Personalised fitness training will have a focus on cardio, light muscle toning and stretching to improve circulation. This helps to mobilise toxins in the muscles and circulatory pathways. Post care is also very important and these detox holidays offer restorative treatments such as Abhyanaga and Chroonaswedana (Ayurveda), Reflexology and Aromatherapy.
