Ananda Spa is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas in India, within a hundred-acre Maharajaâ€™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.
The Yoga Detox retreat at Ananda Spa uses Hatha Yoga cleansing techniques (Shatkriya) to detox naturally. Itâ€™s a totally unique and effective way of cleansing, which combines yoga asana (postures), pranayama (yogic breathing), meditation and an Ayurvedic diet. You will be expected to drink warm saline water and expel it as part of the cleanse and youâ€™ll be taught yoga kriyas to release toxins from the body.
The Yogic Detox is for those wishing to detox in a natural way. You may be suffering from physical ailments, such as digestive issues, sleep issues or physical illness, such as diabetes or arthritis. The Yogic Detox aims to release blocked prana (energy) in the body, which causes disease, allowing it to flow correctly. You can be new to yoga and on your first detox. Go with an open mind and return with ancient methods of cleansing mind, body and soul.
Ananda in the Himalayas have superb luxury detox retreats, yoga and meditation. The Ananda Yoga Detox program uses Hatha Yoga cleansing techniques to detox in a natural and effective way. In this type of detox holiday, Shatkriyas, like Ayurveda, are used to balance the three doshas in the body. It is understood that, when the flow of energy in the body (prana) becomes blocked, disease arises. Ananda Yoga Detox holidays aim to release those blocks and allow prana to flow freely.
Practicing 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 Spa, retreat to the peace of the mountains and allow yourself to detox and reconnect.
