What to Expect
While how you design your day is completely up to you, a typical Day includes a combination of connection with our balance and intention, restorative work in the form of walking and yoga, education on self exploration and growth, therapeutic massage, nourishing eating and plenty of time for self reflection and rest.
Every component of the retreat is optional offering individuals the flexibility to choose the best course for their journey and customize the amount of rest and self reflection time they require.
Daily offering options include – Cambridge city tour, Vinyasa yoga flow, ayurvedic based meals, snacks, self exploration and growth workshop,
Each day will offer structured and unstructured time to allow attendees to choose which activities to participate in and customise the retreat to their unique interests and bespoke needs.
Ayurvedic meals (defined by food prepared with ingredients to support imbalances in the individual doshas) are served during the retreat which helps in detoxifying and balancing the body for practices and can be customized to each person’s specific doshic needs (see more on doshas here). Besides nutritional value, we love to give a glimpse of the local food taste of the region we are residing in.
While the meals will not be strictly vegan or even vegetarian, they will be prepared to support the retreat practices and are considered “Clean Eating”. The food is seasoned with mild spices, which are an important part of the Ayurvedic diet.
Any preference for Vegan, Vegetarian and Dairy or Gluten-free diets can comfortably be managed.
Self Care Rituals
An important part of the retreat can be self-care rituals. Aligned with Ayurvedic principals and practices, a set of daily rituals can be introduced if attendees choose the Ayurvedic starter kit and are encouraged to try.
In addition, the therapy room is open and treatments can be booked in.
