Program

Enjoy classes in Ayurvedic practices, meditation, yoga, nutrition or cooking, as well as healing. There will also be therapeutic and relaxing practices like massage, facials, and restorative treatments. Destination Wellness Koesterman's retreats are designed to leave you feeling better than when you started, not exhausted like many traditional vacations tend to do.

This luxury five-night intensive Ayurvedic wellness retreat will start, solidify, or extend your personal practices in living a balanced, fulfilling lifestyle.

What to expect

A typical day at the retreat includes a combination of connection with earth and nature, restorative work in the form of yoga, education on self-exploration and growth, therapeutic massage, community 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 offerings include morning nature walk, Vinyasa yoga flow, beginner yoga, three Ayurvedic-based meals, snacks, self-exploration and growth workshop, nutrition classes, Restorative yoga, sound baths, and body treatments. Additional evening community activities are offered for those who choose to participate.

Each day will offer structured and unstructured time to allow attendees to choose which activities to participate in and customize the retreat to their unique interests and bespoke needs.

Each day will offer new options and include three meals, snacks, yoga classes at all levels, self-awareness / resiliency workshops, Ayurvedic nutrition workshops, therapy treatments, and plenty of time to hike, connect with the environment, and rest.

Self-care rituals

An important part of the retreat will be self-care rituals. Aligned with Ayurvedic principles and practices, a set of daily rituals will be introduced and attendees are encouraged to try. In addition, each attendee will have one complimentary massage or facial included in the retreat and can opt into additional treatments if they choose.

Attendees will gain the knowledge of self-care rituals and practices to easily incorporate them into their daily life back home.

Location

The retreat is on an exclusive, restored village, nestled in the Fonte Ferrea mountains.

Food

Included in the retreat are three meals a day, plus snacks cooked by Destination Wellness Koesterman' onsite holistic chef. The food will be supportive of unique doshas.

Ayurvedic meals (defined by food prepared with ingredients to support imbalances in the individual doshas) will be served during the retreat, which will help in detoxifying and balancing the body for practices, and can be customized to each person’s specific doshic needs.

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 will be seasoned with mild spices, which are an important part of the Ayurvedic diet.

Besides nutritional value, Destination Wellness Koesterman also loves to give a glimpse of the local food taste of the region they are residing in.

Any preference for vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free diets can comfortably be managed.
