Personal growth, continuous improvement, lifelong learning in Bali…

 

temp_regrann_1507084854379

Personal growth, continuous improvement, lifelong learning…these are mantras for many people today. But good intentions often don’t become action.

Recognizing when we’ve slipped into the stagnant waters of stability, comfort & complacency, certainly isn’t easy.  It happens so gradually until one day we notice how out of shape we have become, physically, mentally and energetically.

And sometimes we need guidance, encouragement and full support by experts to revamp our lifestyle in full throttle while being well looked after with healthy prepared meals, therapeutic treatments to supplement your new journey and most importantly, disconnect from daily demands to fully focus on YOU.

We are thrilled to share our upcoming, empowering retreats hosted by inspiring facilitators, helping you raise the bar up higher in your personal & professional in our sacred sanctuary at Gaia Retreat Center, Ubud, Bali

Gaia Retreat Center - Detox and Yoga - Ubud Bali
Gaia Retreat Center – Detox and Yoga – Ubud Bali

Our bodies naturally cleanse themselves through detoxifying our organs. However, our liver and gut suffer from the stresses of modern lifestyles that challenge, instead of support their functions. It’s easier to continue running a stressful daily lifestyle than it is to step away to nourish ourselves. This is where our detox tailored programs come in.

Detox, short for detoxification, is the body’s natural, ongoing process of neutralizing or eliminating toxins from the body. Toxins are anything that can potentially harm body tissue, including waste products that result from normal cell activity, such as ammonia, lactic acid and homocysteine, and human-made toxins that we are exposed to in our environment, food, water and daily stress. Benefits of a cleanse, detoxifies your body from the inside out – at a complete metabolic and cellular level. Your blood becomes purified and your body is able to release toxins from the colon, kidneys, bladder, lungs, sinuses, and the skin clears out all of the unhealthy lifestyle habits or exposures you have had over time. When you give your digestive system “a break” your body has more energy to devote to releasing toxins. You will also get to choose to practice gentle yoga or meditation to help eliminate the toxins from your blood stream.

During your free time, you will enjoy relaxing by our private pool overlooking the rice fields, book into colonic sessions, lymphatic massage , body scrub, far infrared sauna sessions, reflexology, nutrition consultations, daily invigorating morning yoga practice, cherry picked movies on meditation and much more.

Coconuts and Glass Straws

Our expert holistic team at Gaia ensure you are engaging in a well-researched protocol to give your body the nutrients it needs to function properly to support your cleanse.

The idea is for you to love our detox programs, rehydrate, and reset your digestive and sleeping patterns to its optimal and healthiest balance as you leave Bali feeling fully energized again!

Villa Gaia Breakfast Buffet

CHOOSE FROM A DEEP OR LIGHT CLEANSE:

In the Deep Cleanse, you are on a liquid-only cleanse while on the retreat [juices & warm soups]. Your detox is intensified as energy that would normally go towards digesting and breaking down solid food is now used for healing and repairing on a cellular level. On this cleanse, you get all the nutrition you need while your body is detoxing itself at an accelerated level that supports the liver, gallbladder and kidney detoxification.

In the Light Cleanse, you are on an all-living foods diet. This includes a combination of fresh juices, soups,plant based meals & salads to nourish your body whilst giving it a chance to do some much needed internal cleansing. On this diet, the rate of detoxification is slowed down. This is recommended especially if you are just coming off a standard heavy diet (fast foods, processed foods, lots of sugar and fat) and do not want to detox so quickly.

Note* All welcome [first] dinners start with a warm plant based meal & soup before transitioning into deep cleanse (juices / soups only) and end with a breakfast buffet celebration on the final morning [mix of coconut chia pudding, toasted granola, mixed fruit platter]

Choose to stick to a light or deep cleanse throughout your daily program by highlighting your preference when filling out the Detox Questionnaire Form upon booking.

You might’ve used clay mask on your face, but if it’s a detox you need, did you know that you can also drink bentonite clay? This clay has magical-seeming properties that create an electrical charge when it reacts to liquid which allows the clay to seek out toxins and heavy metals in the body, then bind to them and, finally, draw them out of your gut and skin. As part of our detox protocol, you will enjoy bentonite clay *shots* alongside nourishing detoxifying drinks and supplements to balance out your gut as you enjoy daily treatments, colonics and abdominal massage.

This and so much more is included in our 3-5-7-10 day detox retreat program.

Far Infrared Sauna Benefits – Detox Retreat at Villa Gaia

Far Infra Red Sauna - Gaia Retreat Center in Bali

Hundreds, even thousands of years ago, people turned to heat therapy as a source of healing. Sauna is one of the best ways to immediately soothe achy muscles and relax busy minds. Health professionals worldwide recognize the benefits of saunas to promote blood circulation and oxygenation of body tissues, relief aches, pains, and general stiffness & eliminate body toxins by promoting perspiration.

Unlike traditional saunas that can be uncomfortably hot, far-infrared sauna uses light to create heat. They are a great alternative to the traditional sauna, especially for elderly and people with asthma, as it warms objects without warming the air between it and the object. It allows you to sweat without feeling the intense heat of a regular sauna.

What Is Far-Infrared?

Far-infrared heat is a safe form of naturally occurring energy. Infrared rays have a longer wavelength and cannot be seen by a human eye. Our bodies are able to absorb these rays when in direct contact. This heat doesn’t raise the temperature of the air but goes 2-3 into the body heats the body directly, thus providing all the benefits of natural sunlight without the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. Infrared saunas gained a lot popularity due to its many health benefits.

Health Benefits of Infrared Sauna

– The infrared rays enter the body and converts into energy which stimulates the body tissues. This helps body to change fat cells into sweat and resultantly a person loses fat and weight.

– Helps flush out toxins.
– Improves metabolism.
– Relaxes muscles and helps eliminate shoulder, neck, and back pain.
– Speeds up healing process.
– Improves blood circulation.
– Relieves arthritis pain.
– Boosts immune system.
– Helps relax and rejuvenate the body.
– Removes oil, dirt, makeup from clogged pores and improves skin problems like acne, rashes and scars.

Recommended session time is about 10-15 minutes. You can extend it to about 20 minutes. Just remember that excess is never a good thing. Always do your own research and be aware of the benefits and limitations of an infrared sauna. Never check your physical limits while using it and it is always better to first learn how to use it and what would the best method for you. The limitations of sauna differ for each one of us and similarly the benefits also differ and depend upon the health condition of the person.

Remember, always respect your body limitations!
