Detox, Yoga & Acupuncture Retreat


Lighten your body, mind and soul as you devote a week to a transformational cleanse through juice fasting, yoga and sound baths complemented with acupuncture therapy in this stunning beachside resort of Goa. 

This detox retreat helps you to cleanse and purify the body and mind, eliminating toxins that have stored up in your cells due to unhealthy habits, poor diet and accumulated stress. Fasting allows a deeply cleansing process to take place in the body that reaches down to each and every cell and tissue. Your organs receive a well-deserved rest and a much-needed clear out. After 24 hours of not eating, the energy used for digestion is redirected towards clearing out waste matter, dead and damaged cells, blood gas, microbes, parasites and other toxins from your system.

With a health-conscious team we recognise the importance of focusing one's intention toward restoring balance to one's life in a truly holistic sense - mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our programs are designed to provide you with results by working with diet, exercise, supplementation, and healing touch.

As part of the program, you will participate in twice daily yoga classes with Jessica Brookes and Jack Weaver (founders of The Shanti Space); explore the transformational power of Kundalini Yoga and the gentle yet deeply restorative Yin Yoga and Hatha Yoga.

Along with a daily meditation program which will include Qi Gong, Pranayama, Mantras with mala beads and Mindfulness practices - you will also receive three acupuncture treatments to complement the weeklong cleanse.

Situated on the banks of the Asvem river near the shores of the Arabian sea in North Goa, your accomodation at The Mandala Resort is a place to return to nature and feel fully at peace. Here you can switch off and enjoy beautiful weather, relish life's simple blissful moments with a book in a hammock, attune to the sound of the birds and appreciate the view. For more activities you can kayak down the river to the beach, dance and play in the infamous spiritual hub of Arombol or join us on a wildlife tour. This is time to give yourself what your mind and body need.

How does juice fasting work?
During the fast you will consume organic fruit and vegetable juices, young tender coconuts, psylium husk, moringa and vegetable broth to provide you with the vitamins and minerals you need to nurture your body, and detoxifying herbs will aid in the cleansing process. Psyllium husks will provide cleansing bulk and help stave off physical hunger. Daily yoga is complemented by acupuncture sessions (3 over the course of the week) to facilitate harmony and balance within the body-mind.
