"While on your weekend getaway; opt for a more cleansing and detox experience".

Try a Juice Fasting Program; Juicing involves consuming only raw vegetable and fruit juice and water for a short period of time. It is considered one of the more rapid methods of detoxification due to the reduced food intake and absence of solid food.


Try Meditation Classes to quite your mind, free yourself of the noise.

HATHA YOGA: helps you to relax and reduces stress through deep, controlled breathing and the mental focus, concentration and balance required of yoga postures. While simply focusing on your breathing increases relaxation by calming your mind, the anti-stress benefits of deep breathing also result from biochemical responses. Deep breathing stimulates the relaxation response and creates a feeling of calm.

KARMA YOGA: is selfless service unto humanity. Karma Yoga is the Yoga of action which purifies the heart and prepares the Antahkarana (the heart and the mind) for the reception of Divine Light or attainment if Knowledge of the Self. The important point is that you will have to serve humanity without any attachment or egoism.
