WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

"So it’s nurturing spiritually, it’s nurturing emotionally. The silence is very nurturing. I lost weight. I lost 5 pounds, but more important is the lightness of being that I experienced. And that I found kind of phenomenal.

"I’d done reading on Ayurveda, and I’ve tried to adopt it to my life. You read the book, but if you don’t have someone boiling it down to some practical ways to utilize it and actually showing you…I didn’t know I’d learn so much I could take home with me. They make it common sense and practical."

"I really liked it. It was very peaceful and I enjoyed the scenery. The diet was designed in such a way that I feel very light, and I think I lost a few pounds. My back was actually quite tight and jammed, so that it was hard to lift much. What was amazing to me is that Lokesh did a nasya treatment...and instantly my back started feeling better."

The weight-loss program is not just a 10 day retreat. Rather, it is an extensive program with far-reaching benefits. It starts weeks before you arrive on site and continues for 4 months afterwards with monthly follow-ups, yoga sessions, opportunities for questions and continuing guidance. While some books and blogs leave you on your own and wondering, we guide you through each step of the process so that you are sure your effort - and results - are moving in the right direction.
