"I joined for the 13 Day Detox Retreat and ended up staying the 28 days. The daily yoga classes were refreshing, yet challenging enough to grow my vitality. I loved the routine so much it has become my ritual back home!! Thank you Guru-ji's, I can't wait to come back next year! Hari Om." - Lara, USA
In this detoxification retreat we offer to our students sauna bath too, Saunas have been used for thousands of years and are still popular today. A sauna can help people to unwind and relax, and it may have other health benefits.
Sweating has long been used as a therapy. The Mayans used sweat houses 3,000 years ago, according to Harvard Health Publications.
The heat from the sauna relaxes the body's muscles, improves circulation and stimulates the release of endorphins. Endorphins are the body's all-natural "feel good" chemical, and their release provides a truly wonderful "after sauna glow.” Reduced risk of hypertension(high blood pressure) with regular sauna use.

Emotions are basically our way of expression it may be either positive also and negative also, As we can say that our body is like bottle of water when we put some heavy thing into water it goes and settle down, in the same what every negative thoughts or holding we have, we can say in the form of anger, anxiety, depression etc. gets deposited in our calf muscles in the lower leg and take the form of knots and in future it starts creating various problems in our spine and when we cross age of approx 30 it starts coming out in the form of mental, physical or emotional diseases as our vital force becomes low. So,how we can clean our body by doing treatment of knots which are being created at in our calf muscles and various parts of our body is being explained with the practical aspect in retreat.
Shirodhara is a form of Ayurveda therapy that involves gently pouring liquids over the forehead and can be one of the steps involved in Panchakarma. The name comes from the Sanskrit words shiro (head) and dhara (flow). The liquids used in shirodhara depend on what is being treated, but can include oil, milk, buttermilk, coconut water, or even plain water.
Shirodhara has been used to treat a variety of conditions including eye diseases, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, greying of hair, neurological disorders, memory loss, insomnia, hearing impairment, tinnitus, vertigo, Ménière's disease and certain types of skin diseases like psoriasis. It is also used non-medicinally at spas for its relaxing properties. Studies report that Ayurvedic Shirodhara is a safe option to improve sleep quality among people who have sleep problems. Shirodhara is also effective in treating mental conditions such as anxiety, and mental stress. The calming effect produced by Shirodhara is similar to that obtained with meditation.
There are specialized forms of shirodhara called ksheeradhara, thakradhara, taildhara and jaladhara.
