About the event
We are very happy to be able to offer you this retreat, just on the weekend that marks the end of winter and the beginning of spring - an ideal time to detoxify the body, calm your mind, rest from routines, disconnect from obligations and focus in the practice of yoga and meditation and so that you assimilate well the treatments of Ayurveda Medicine that together profoundly increase well-being.
Yoga and Ayurveda are linked from their first evolutionary steps 5,000 thousand years ago. Both start from a holistic point of view, which sees the human being in its entirety and provides tools for their deep well-being, peace, mental and physical health and, above all, returns them to their origin, which is happiness.
The goals of the retreat:
1-Get to balance the body and the mind, through the practice of yoga, meditation and Ayurveda medicine treatments, over a weekend.
2-Improve the drainage and detoxification of the organs and the skin, through programmed practices and diet.
3-Find a space of calm and inner silence, to disconnect and eliminate the toxic substances that stress generates (cortisol, adrenaline, etc.)
For this purpose, we will go to Villa Caprici, a beautiful place in the middle of the Garraf nature, in a peaceful environment, close to Sitges, with spaces where you can simply sit and merge into the landscape of the trees, the sky, the mountain and the sea. The house is surrounded by forest and isolated, which allows privacy and tranquility that are necessary for this goal.
In this process we put an important emphasis on food.
We have prepared a vegetarian and tasty menu, in charge of Jonathan, so that you can feed yourself in a tasty way, while you cleanse your body healthily with several Ayurveda treatments every day and with a constant guided practice of Ashtanga Yoga, Meditation and silence.
They teach: Carmen Navarro (Praanam Barcelona School) and Tammy Hervitz (Ashtanga Yoga Sitges)

We recommend using the time to spend as much as possible in silence.

After each treatment, the patient should rest for at least half an hour in bed, without falling asleep.
The diet that we will follow: Vegetarian properly designed from Ayurveda medicine with the presence of eggs (if someone is vegan, their menu will be adapted).
Food without incompatible mixtures, to prevent the efficiency of the gastrointestinal tract from lowering, therefore, the food line is focused on digestive rest, eating well and in a varied way.
Throughout the day only infusions will be drunk, including meal times.
After each meal there will be a walk of at least half an hour, gently, to improve digestion and not generate toxins.
The diet will not contain wheat or spelled flour, foods with a lot of starch, aubergines, mushrooms, dairy products, because they are substances that produce inflammation, create irregularities in the behavior of dosha functions or affect any tissue, an issue that we do not want in this retreat.
