Treatments can be given according to individual requirements. Restorative yoga and meditation sessions will take place in the evening followed by a healthy evening meal. A special detox cleanse option is also available which involves a short fast and the intake of saline solution a routine of specific asanas are performed. During the whole weekend healthy vegetarian food will be served, organic and locally sourced wherever possible.
