The New Year’s Detoxification and Juice Fasting Program is an ideal opportunity to deeply cleanse and rejuvenate body and mind in a safe and supportive environment. You can rest in the warm climate of the Bahamas, enjoying clean air, sunshine, a beautiful beach and ocean, and the support of experienced staff and health care practitioners.

Juice-fasting is the fastest and safest way to eliminate toxins from the body. Fruit and vegetable juices and herbal teas help the process of detoxification while adding vitamins and minerals to the body. Juice fasting allows the body to stay slim, healthy, and vital. By fasting, you give your digestive system the opportunity to rest, and in so doing, the body has more energy. This energy is used by the mind. You enjoy mental clarity, concentration, and control over the senses. You feel light, joyful, and peaceful.

The program begins gradually with a few days of raw food followed by fruit and vegetable juice fasting, and ends with a raw food diet for the last days of the program. The process is supported by detoxifying herbs and supplements. You will also enjoy special yoga classes and lectures on nutrition.

The program is designed to create a transformation not only on the physical level, but also on the mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. Herbal supplements, yoga, and meditation will aid in this transformation. With the practice of both yoga and fasting you will achieve a higher degree of physical, mental, and spiritual awareness as toxins are eliminated.
