Ayurvedic Detoxification Rejuvenation Retreat

5-Day Kitchari Cleanse

Suhas Kshirsagar and Manisha Kshirsagar
Tuition: $475

Ready to start from a clean slate? Join us for a special cleansing week consisting of a diet of kitchari, a rice and lentil mixture cooked with special spices that is the foundation of an Ayurvedic detox and gives a break to the digestive system. Learn how to cook this key Ayurvedic dish so you can experience its healing nourishment at home.

Regular cleanses are an important part of the Ayurvedic seasonal routine as they aid in disease prevention and wellness. During this detox retreat, you will receive a detailed history intake, pulse and tongue analysis, and medical astrology reading. You will leave with an understanding of your personal constitution and the basic tools to keep your body, mind, and spirit in balance as you move forward in your life.

Before the retreat begins you will need to fill out a thorough health intake form. For your medical astrology chart you will need your birth date, time, and place.
