Panchakarma Retreat Program

Panchakarma Retreat Program is a deep ayurvedic purification of the body for balance and harmony. This is a process used to clean the body of toxic materials left by disease and poor nutrition. Panchakarma means (five actions) is a cleansing and rejuvenating program for the body, mind and consciousness.

  • Elimination of toxins and wastes.

  • Purification of body & mind.
  • Improvement of immune system and resistance to illness.
  • Anti-aging effect.
  • Enhance your strength and mental health.

Every human consists of 5 elements (air, water, space, fire, earth). These 5 elements create our body constitution. According to it every person can be vata, pitta or kapha. Vata means air, pitta – fire, kapha – mucos. Vata responsible for the process of movement in our body (passage of meal), pitta responsible for transformation (methabolism), kapha for oleation. Ayurveda identifies human as healthy when all 3 doshas (vata, pitta & kapha) are in balance.

The aim of Panchakarma – bring all 3 Doshas in harmony.

Panchakarma consists of:

  • Poorvakarma (preparation) – We use special ayurvedic herbs, massages, steam treatment, diet to make your body free from toxins.
  • Panchakarma itself – Daily purification techniques in combination with ayurvedic diet and meditation
  • Paschatkarma (after treatment) – special diet and lifestyle program

Starts every day (except weekend) all year around!
