5 day Ayurvedic Detox Retreat@Home: Apr 2021

This event has passed. Here are some other events coming up...

10 April, 2021

10 – 17 April 2021

A change-of-season, gentle kitcheri-based cleanse, in the comfort of your own home, to detox body and mind, boost energy, reset digestion and improve  immunity in preparation for summer. Re set and bounce into spring!

In only 5 days you’ll feel aligned with nature’s cycles, clearer, healthier and renewed. 

Seasonal change, heralded by the Spring equinox on March 21st, alerts our mind and bodies that we need to shift gears to keep functioning at our best.
After the excesses of winter where we are ‘stocking up’ to keep warm and nourished in all manner of ways, this is the perfect time to let go and re fresh. No doubt, the liver, gall bladder and intestinal tract yearn will for a good cleanse!

Who hasn’t gained a little more around the waist from rich, heavy and grounding food so necessary during winter – not to mention the on going lockdown we have all been experiencing, with perhaps less exercise and lots of zoom meetings! 

Join us on this gentle detox@home to keep our bodies and minds functioning at their very best, during this time of seasonal change.

The Spring detox@home will be great for you if you are feeling
•    a little bit heavy and sluggish after too many weeks close to the cooker and larder while working from home!
•    ready for a spring cleanse, in preparation for summer
•    congested—with signs of lymphatic congestion, water retention or sinus congestion
•    generalised aches and pains
•    stiff joints
•    bloating, wind, constipation, heartburn, acid reflux, diarrhea  or constipation
•    weight gain
•    mild fatigue
•    lack of mental clarity
•    irregular or impaired appetite

This Dru Ayurveda gentle detox@home is for you if you
•    are ready to release yourself from craving unhealthy unseasonal foods
•    are committed to prioritising your health for 5 days
•    are self-directed and have self-discipline to follow the detox menus and programme—
don’t worry it’s easy!
•    need a programme that fits in with your family and work life
•    don’t have any serious medical issues

What the detox@home provides
•    a quick quiz for us to determine the current imbalances of your doshas (constitution)
•    3-hour introductory workshop explaining key ayurvedic principles and the detox@home program (available as a recording)
•    an introductory morning followed by an easy 5 day de tox
•    full menus for you’re the main 5  day detox, with recipes and shopping list 
•    4 x 20 min cooking demo videos, full of tips to create the detox recipes with ease, available on vimeo  to watch in your own time
•    bonus cooking video with additional recipes specifically for the spring detox
•    chart of foods permitted during the gentle detox and those to avoid
•    daily yoga and pranayama program to fuel your digestive fire, unwind your nervous system, quieten the mind, de-stagnate the lymph and increase detox benefits  
•    daily zoom Q&A forums, to check-in with your tutors, and be supported and inspired by like-minded souls sharing this detox journey 

What if I cannot do all 5 days with the zoom connections?
The detox@home program takes place in the company of a like-minded community with 5 nights of live Q&A hosted by Dru Ayurveda tutors & health coaches with support from the Dru Ayurveda team. 
•    We recommend that you immerse yourself in the detox over the 5 days 10th to 17th April, leading up to the spring equinox, as it’s the best time to prepare yourself for the change of season. Checking in each evening at 7pm gives the support, encouragement and inspiration of knowing you are not doing this on your own.
•    However, if you can only make a few of the zoom connections it's OK too. 
If you’re not able to attend live, you can post your questions ahead of time to Janey@druworldwide.com.. 
The introductory workshop with explanation of the home cleanse programme will be available as recordings. You’ll receive links to the cooking vimeos to watch any time, and pdfs of the menu plans, recipes, a chart of permitted foods and a shopping list.

Dru Ayurveda & Yoga workshop:- A thoroughly enjoyable day, enlightening me to how I can work on my health and happiness with minimal effort - great for a kapha type!

Ayurveda Retreat

Booking myself on to the Dru Ayurvedic Weekend Retreat is one of the best spontaneous decisions I’ve made in a while. I have a reputation for leaving things until the last minute, in this case I booked my place just an hour before it began! I guess that’s one of the benefits of an online course - I didn’t have to physically get there, just make sure I was out of my PJs before the Zoom meeting went live!!! 
After a few weeks of lockdown and spending perhaps a little too much time reading and watching the news, this online retreat gave me a much needed boost of positivity. It was wonderful to connect with all the other people who were attending, to see so many smiling faces, some new and some familiar. 
The content of the course was superbly presented - a good balance of ‘live’ face to face information sharing, question and answer sessions, some ‘live’ yoga, meditation and chanting and then a series of pre recorded videos to watch. We were given plenty of short breaks throughout the day and a nice long lunch break, time to eat, read our notes, watch the videos and get outside for some fresh air.
Alongside the Zoom live video there was excellent support for anyone with technical problems, via the chat box, email or telephone. The chat was also a place to ask questions and share information.
The Dru Team did a great job of putting this weekend retreat together and I wouldn’t hesitate in joining them for another online course in the future. Obviously if I had the choice I’d prefer to be there in person, but this really is a great alternative until we can do that.

Thank you so much to you and Bob and Imogen and of course Keith {Dru Yoga & Ayurveda Cookery workshop}.  I am looking forward to trying some of his recipes from his book.

I thought it was a great course. A lovely combination, especially as Keith related the doshas to different personality and behavioural traits, and that these were linked with the relevant balancing yoga sequence in the afternoon.
