INTEGRATED HEALING FOR BODY, MIND AND HEART
Your 10 Day Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Cleanse Includes
Begin with director and vedic wellness counsellor Shankari Van Acker to discuss your wellness goals and create a personalized plan of preparation and support.
Your private room is a space for relaxation, rejuvenation, and introspection. It offers you the opportunity to have your own personal sanctuary where you can fully immerse yourself in the healing and transformational experience.
Having a private space allows you to focus on your well-being without any disturbances, creating a tranquil environment for healing and self-discovery. Your room includes a private bath with tub and shower.
Learning and practicing a daily Ayurveda Dinacharya (daily routine) is a meaningful way to incorporate Ayurvedic principles into your day-to-day life.
Dinacharya is a set of guidelines and practices that help promote overall health and well-being. Together we will create your ideal routine based on your individual needs and Doshic considerations for optimal results.
Ayurvedic Yoga Asana
Enjoy a daily practice of Ayurvedic yoga asana incorporating breathwork (pranayama) and mindful movement to help balance your doshas, promote flexibility, strength, and overall vitality.
Each class aims to create harmony between the mind, body, and spirit, based on your current state and the day’s environmental conditions. Support your overall well-being and promote a sense of grounded and vital energy.
Seasonal Organic Ayurvedic Meals
Ayurveda places great emphasis on the quality and nature of the food we consume, considering it an integral part of the ability to detoxify and rejuvenate.
Our meals are prepared with love using fresh, locally sourced ingredients in alignment to support optimal digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Each meal is carefully crafted to incorporate all six tastes (sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent) in order to create a balanced and nourishing experience to support your healing journey.
Experience our Transformational Therapies rooted in the traditional Indian system of Ayurveda. These therapies are designed to harmonize circulation to support detoxification.
1. Ahbyanga: This full-body massage uses warm herbal oils, which helps improve circulation, relaxes muscles, and nourishes the skin.
2. Swedana: Ayurvedic steam therapy, that involves the use of steam to promote detoxification and relaxation. The herbal steam helps open up the pores, allowing the body to release toxins through sweating. It also helps improve circulation, exhance relaxation and aids in balancing the doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) in the body.
3. Basti: Ayurvedic enema therapy is considered one of the most powerful and effective methods for cleansing and rejuvenating the body. It helps lubricate the intestines, improve digestion, nourish tissues, and alleviate Vata-related imbalances such as constipation, dryness, and pain.
Herbal Teas and Medicines
During your Ayurvedic cleanse, our experienced therapists will assess your individual needs and dosha imbalances to determine the most suitable dietary herbs and herbal formulas for your specific healing.
Personalized teas and herbal medicines are carefully selected to support your unique constitution and address your specific health concerns and wellness goals such as digestion, immunity, or stress management.
Healing Group Meditations
The daily mindfulness meditations can be a powerful and transformative practice to promote calm and healing among participants.
The combined energy and intention of uplifting community helps create a profound sense of connection and support for everyone involved.
The Healing Power of Nature
Our program is held on the serene island of Île d’Orléans in the majestic St. Lawrence River.
Being immersed in nature allows you to disconnect from the noise and distractions of everyday life, and reconnect with the healing energy of the natural world.
