Details:

Ayurveda, the ancient dietary science of vitality is inviting you to cleanse your body in search of balance and wellness. During this retreat, we will nurture and celebrate the physical body through a curated diet, intermitted fasting, and different yoga practices that will help cleanse and detoxify. You will also learn the Ayurveda basics, the natural medicines from India so that you can continue your self-care practice onward from your home and day-to-day. Your transformation begins at Copal.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

The practice of cleansing is considered a vital part of an Ayurvedic lifestyle, with great potential for improved energy, strength, and immunity, as well as a renewed love of life. At its root, an Ayurvedic cleanse improves the strength of Agni (the metabolic fire) in the GI tract and throughout the body by resting and purifying the digestive system.

Ayurveda sees balanced Agni as one of the most important requirements in achieving optimal health. Ayurveda is a holistic science with more than 5000 years of history. Dr. Allende will be guiding 3 workshops to teach the principles of Ayurveda and guide you to receive an optimal cleanse of your body for a detox that is sure to bring you balance and health.

During these 10 days together you will learn to take care of your body with yoga and diet. You will enjoy nutritional, locally organic sourced meals, unprocessed and unrefined. In other words, you won’t be eating animal products, (meats, fish, eggs, dairy). This will all be paired with yoga practices led By Ximena to sunrise and sunset.

This practice and integration of true natural medicine can continue from your home day-to-day. Your transformation begins at Copal.

I love my work. I believe that it is much richer than hip bridges and single leg lifts. For me, it is about stretching more than you can reach, which requires curiosity and a desire to go beyond the limitations of present knowledge and experience.”

While teaching or being taught, I am always encountering new ideas, approaches, and energies. I love creating a calm and centred space where my students can embrace everything Pilates. I encourage people to go beyond the familiar. Picasso said, “action is the fundamental key to success”. Choices and actions are intimately linked.
