The body needs purifying processes once in a while. Throughout the year we accumulate toxins, not only through food but also caused by stress and bad habits. The accumulation of toxic substances in the body can eventually cause diseases, a weak immune system and a fluctuating mood.
Our Detox Program consists of a diet based on fresh juices and raw food. It is a less aggressive way to enjoy a cleansing process, especially to the liver and gallbladder. No need to fast to eliminate toxins. There are many foods and herbs that help the body to get rid of toxins safely, while still nourishing it with wonderful vegetables and fruits. During the Retreat we will also add a colon cleansing with seeds to ensure a detox of the entire digestive tract. The toxins which are eliminated from the liver and the gallbladder could be reabsorbed by the body if the colon is not functioning properly.
* A Program created under the supervision of Monica Fuentes (Naturopath and Therapist specialized in Detox programs)
Yoga classes will be taught and are designed to help the body release toxic elements, impurities and waste, as well as to promote relaxation. Every morning we will flow through smooth movement to stimulate and open the body. Every morning there will be a guided meditation that will concentrate on a therapeutic level to help the emotional and physical changes that can be felt during detox. Also, there will be a workshop where we work on Pranayama (breathing) to help the detox process.
We will be offering treatments to help the cleansing process. Through massage, there is a faster release of physical and emotional toxins at the cellular level, restoring the body’s self healing ability.
Carla will be ofering treatments on Saturday at the Retreat. She is very pleased to have joined our team and come back to her humble roots of desiring to be close to nature, to be grounded, to be among peers with whom she can share her passion and work to heal through her Shiatsu based massage discipline. She looks forward to sharing her passions with you in the north of Catalonia, where the sunsets and vistas continue to inspire her….
Beginning to walk on her Dad and Mom’s backs at the age of 5, Carla recognized early in life both the benefits and joy that healing bodywork could bring to people, as well as herself.
Carla is a certified Shiatsu Therapist and a Reiki Master Healer and Teacher. Carla´s work practicing massage for over 10 years now. She has also acted most recently as a Volunteer providing compassionate touch with Bridge Hospice in San Diego, CA, which has kept her in line with her strong belief in community and Seva, the Sanskrit word for “selfless service.”
