We would also like to remind our readers about Ananda’s Living with Arthritis Retreat scheduled for October 2014. Ananda’s Living with Arthritis Retreat will be conducted by Ananda's Ayurvedic Doctor, Dr.Shijoe Matthew- from October 1st to October 15th 2014. It can be booked both as a 7 night or a 14 night retreat.

Yogic Cleansing Retreat

Ananda’s Yogic Cleansing retreat aims at practicing the different Hatha yogic cleansing techniques (Shatkriya) to detox in a natural and effective way. Shatkriyas like Ayurveda are also used to balance the three doshas in the body (Vata, Pitta and Kapha). In Yogic cleansing, asana (Hatha yogic postures), Pranayama (yogic breathing techniques), meditation and Yogic/Ayurvedic diet are incorporated along with Shatkriya to give profound experiences of vitalization and harmony. The intensity of the package increases with the duration of stay of the guest.


Ananda’s approach to Yogic Cleansing

7 nights yogic cleansing or detoxification is an introductory form of Yogic Detox with cleansing of the upper Gastro intestine tract, sinus, nasal passage, eyes and ears. This is moderate in intensity but yet a very holistic and vitalizing experience.

Hatha Yogic technique of Jal Neti (nasal cleansing) and Kunjal (voluntary yogic vomiting) work on the upper Gastro intestine tract, sinus, nasal passage, eyes and ears. Jal Neti is a process done with saline luke warm water to cleanse the nasal passage, sinus and throat. Water is poured from one nostril and it naturally comes out through the other nostril. Neti is a very effective in managing the problems of sinusitis, hay fever, asthma, tonsillitis and dust allergies. It is a practice which rejuvenates the entire head region and after the removal of toxins one feels lightness and relaxation.

14 night Yogic Detox incorporates Hatha Yogic cleansing of Laghoo Shankha Prakshalana (yogic cleansing of the intestines). This is a non invasive Hatha Yogic technique of complete intestinal wash or cleansing. Laghoo Shankha Prakshalana or LSP is a very simple, natural and effective procedure to encourage a good bowel movement. LSP intends to empty and clean the whole digestive system by encouraging natural peristaltic movement of the intestine, sphincter muscle and nerves of the digestive tract in order to enhance the cleansing process.

This is a technique of Pranayama as well as the process of cleansing in the system of Hatha Yoga. This technique enhances the level of vitality (Prana) in the body.

There are a few Contraindications of this practice. People suffering from high blood pressure, heart condition, hernia, or any recent abdominal surgery should avoid this practice. Pregnant women should avoid the practice or should do this under the supervision of an expert.

To do the practice assume a comfortable and stable sitting cross legged position with the eyes and the lips gently closed. Place the hands on the knees. And keep the spine, head and the neck straight in one line. Please align the body properly so that the weight of the body is being passed on to the buttocks through the spinal cord and your abdominal muscles are very loose and relaxed. Take a few deep and slow breaths and relax the body from inside.

To start the practice inhale slowly and exhale forcefully by contracting the abdominal muscles simultaneously. Continue in this fashion rapidly at the speed of one breath per second. Exhale forcefully in dynamic way but without constricting the facial muscles and the nostrils. The force in the breath should be generated by rapid contraction of the abdominal muscles. Practice up to 15-20 counts in the first round and then take a slow and deep breath in and out. Followed by your natural and normal breaths. As you feel the breath has settled down restart the second round of the practice by inhaling slowly and start with the forceful exhalation. During the practice please keep the shoulders and the chest still and relaxed. As you finish the second round relax the body and the breath through deep inhalation and exhalation followed by a few natural breaths. In this way one can continue up to 5 rounds of the practice.

For a beginner 20-25 counts is a good number. Later on as one find the practice easier and relaxing can take the counts even up to 35 to 50.

Kapalbhati is an excellent practice to rejuvenate the brain cells therefore it is highly effective in preventing and improving the brain degenerating disorders. During the practice of Kapalbhati there is a rapid vertical movement of the diaphragm which improves the circulation of the oxygenated blood and fluids in the entire digestive organs. It is also very good for people who are depressed or those who have low vitality level in the body. The ideal time of Kapalbhati like all yoga practices is early morning when the stomach is empty.


Abhyanga is a traditional synchronized full body massage given by two experienced Ayurveda therapists using Sesame oil; this experience is also known as the “four-handed-massage.” Abhyanga improves physical consistency, helps to liquefy toxins and induces relaxation, whilst normalizing blood pressure and eliminating impurities.
