The environment that you live in, whether you like it or not, contributes highly to your health and mind-state. Which is why Vitality Now has chosen venue must have what it takes to support the detoxification process:

  • Close to nature: as it helps to invoke more harmony (sattva) into your life.
  • Peaceful and away from disturbing noise: to avoid further imbalances that are caused by excessive stimulation to the body. Ideally, your body's senses are minimally used and maximally rested.
  • Organic food: Much of the food for Vitality Now Retreat comes from the local farmers and is free of chemicals.
  • Forest fresh air: gentle walks through the negative-ion rich jungle enhance the detox process and energize the cells.
  • Alkaline mineralized water: all medicinal teas and foods are cooked in alkaline water, filtered by the best water filtration system Vitality Now could find.

And Alaya Verde ticked all of the above. Nestled among secluded native subtropic 42 acres of forest, Alaya Verde is the idyllic place for an inward journey and letting go of the old. Away from mundane distractions: to fully immerse in the retreat and detoxify from the living habits.


The basic accommodation for the Vitality Now Retreat is camping onsite. This allows natural connections with the environment and also removes you from electronic pollution, giving your body greater exposure to the earth’s resonant field.

You're welcome to bring your own tent or camper van, no extra cost for that. But if you need us to supply a tent and bedding.


Imagine this, you have a goal that you want to achieve, a role that you need to play, or a responsibility that you need to fulfill. Yet, you don't have the energy or the mental capacity to handle that, sustainably. Even worse, you may have a disease plaguing your body that prevents you from performing at all. In Ayurveda, there are two paths to moving out of health issues and ending the struggle: practices that can be done at home and gently encourage the balance of the body over time (Shamana). Practices that need to be done under supervision and quickly pull the disease-causing properties from the body (Shodhana). For stubborn imbalances, both processes are often needed, yet only Shodhana can pull the dosha (body defects) by their roots and provide quick recovery.

What makes Ayurvedic detox special?

Ayurveda has the oldest recorded history of performing intensive detox procedures, giving them the experience of how to avoid side effects and provide maximum detoxification at the cellular level.

The basic principle of 'do no harm' is often ignored by many detox programs. At many stages of my career, I often needed to handle the imbalances of clients that were caused by a non-Ayurvedic detox program. Some felt great during the detox, yet side effects lingered after. While others felt vitalized the first few times, then when repeating in the future did not get similar results. Ayurveda explains these side effects and reduced results with the disease principle known as Vata.

The Ayurvedic understanding of the world and disease include cyclical laws of the universe. These same cycles create the disease process from initiation to manifestation. The first of these is an initiatory cycle known as Vata. Vata is related to the beginning of all acts of creation, including the creation of disease.

This understanding from Ayurvedic medicine enlightens you to the fact that when you experience more Vata type aspects of life, such as those that are present in a detox process, you can initiate strong disease-promoting processes in your bodily tissues.

This Vata then influences the controlling forces of the body through the nervous system, and the long-term disease process may not play out for years to come, as the cycle of the disease comes to fruition.

Examples of these Vata type disease influences are loss, separation, fear, pain, deficiency, cold, dry, change, or virtually anything that aggravates the nervous system. As detox is a process of loss and separation where you forcefully promote the body’s evacuation channels, it can also strongly aggravate Vata. In the long run, it can create diseases in the functional and controlling forces of the body.

It is therefore essential that your chosen detox program takes measures to reduce and balance Vata first. Preparing the body for the removal processes which are going to increase Vata.

What are the benefits of an Ayurvedic detox?

The doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, will return to their original balance and function normally. The mind calms down, intellect and concentration become sharp.

  • Assists in Attaining a clear and glowing complexion.
  • It helps to reverse the negative effects of daily living.
  • It restores the natural state of health and wellness by bringing balance in the system and improving bodily function.
  • Re-tune the brain's master control system, the pituitary and pineal glands, so hormonal control and enzymatic processes return to balance.
  • Heals intestinal villi, so absorption and digestion dramatically improve.
  • Restores proper eliminative function of bowels, urinary, respiratory, and sweat systems. If these aren’t working great then you are likely to build the toxins up again quickly.
  • Balances hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia so energy is more consistent over the day.
  • Cleanses the liver, flushes bile, and restores the body’s ability to maintain a balanced blood environment.
  • Unblocks and restores flow to the lymph and its glands, bringing luster to the skin and hair.​

It is important to note that many detox systems either don’t go far enough or go way too far in one area. Often they focus on the elimination of toxins far and above restoring the balanced functional principles of the body, which should always be your highest focus. After all, it’s usually an imbalance of these functional principles that created the toxin build-up in the first place.

How this retreat can help you to gain vitality now and after! There are many places that offer Ayurvedic detox. So what makes Vitality Now Retreat different?

Enhancing the digestion

Vitality Now's signature Vitality Now Detox program, has a special focus on enhancing the digestive and transformative force of the body, known in Ayurveda as Agni. This focus allows us to better digest all that life presents you with, physical or emotional, and turn these experiences into growth and evolution.

Individualised detox retreat

The unique thing about Vitality Now is that it is not just an individualized cleansing and detox retreat. It includes daily life and wellness education classes so you leave the detox with the wisdom to sustain the vitality and lifestyle we create together.

Educational classes

Daily educational classes with Vitality Now, so that you can have a deeper understanding of the detox process, hence increasing the detox effect. As well as an opportunity to learn the Ayurvedic lifestyle, so that you're equipped with tools and knowledge to continue your daily Ayurvedic practices after the retreat.

Community vibe and support

Unlike most Indian Panchakarma programs, Vitality Now is limited to a small group that does the program together. Often Indian centers take larger groups, participants come and go during your program, and people are usually on different schedules to each other. These factors (which are qualities of Vata: new, separation, and dissimilarity) can contribute to increasing Vata, which is the opposite of what you're trying to do.

Exclusive and individualized

The Vitality Now Retreat is designed so participants bond in unity and enhance each other's process. Limited numbers (max 10-15 people) increase the personalization with plenty of opportunities to pick my brain.

24/7 doctor support

There'll be twice a day check to adjust your program with Vitality Now, and they will stay on-site during the whole retreat. This enables the best and most accurate program for the individuals.

Think of this week-long retreat as a vitality re-booster. During this program, Vitality Now will help you to install new positive programs. These new programs will empower your health and relational success to spread through your life for the long run.
