What Is Panchakarma 2.0?

As you know, as prior participants in our Panchakarma program, this retreat embodies the preeminent healing and detoxification process in traditional ayurvedic medicine. According to ayurveda, Panchakarma is one of the most effective treatments in healing disease, clearing toxins, and restoring balance to the body.

Because Ayurveda believes all illness arises from toxin (ama) accumulation and energetic imbalances in the body and mind, this program includes the foundational comprehensive treatments you have experienced in the past: a kitchari fast, daily massage (abhyanga), shirodhara and steam treatments, Basti (enema) and daily yoga.

In Panchakarma 2.0, we have expanded the program to include more cleansing elements: daily Garshana (skin brushing), optional juice fasting, and upper wash (Gajakarani). We’ve also added more energetic and mental cleansing options with pranayama practices and meditative techniques.

Through these comprehensive, yet gentle, purification processes, toxins on all levels are cleared and energies are brought into harmony. Upon completion of the program, you will feel clearer, lighter, energized, and more vibrant in body and mind.

In addition to the cleansing aspects of the program, we’ve also expanded the educational components to include more depth about Ayurvedic principles of health and disease, and about understanding and balancing our doshas.

This is our premiere offering of the advanced Panchakarma program. We look forward to your participation and feedback! We intend for it to be all you have come to expect from past experiences, and more!

We look forward to seeing you.
