This November we will be returning to KiChic to run two consecutive and identical week-long detox retreats. The retreat focusses on classical Ayurvedic detox practices, a full digestive system re-set, therapeutic bodywork, organic spa treatments, functional food workshops, a 3-day raw juice fast, powerful Amazonian botanicals, superfoods, supplementation, yoga, meditation, a wild pacific beach and plenty of lounging poolside in one of Peru’s most exquisite hotels.
KiChic is one of the most stunning and luxurious beach destinations in Peru. The Amaveda Retreat will hold all rooms in the hotel bringing next level privacy and exclusivity. KiChic Hotel boasts a palatial jungle-style yoga studio, dozens of gorgeous shaded nooks to read, relax and nap in, and some of the most refined styled rooms in South America.
All retreat guests receive the Amaveda detox product package of 100% natural products to be used throughout the detox week, and beyond. All products are small batch, hand crafted and formulated from the highest quality botanicals available. Many of the products made for the guests teach invaluable self-care Ayurvedic daily practices that allow the detox week to live on, long after it’s over.
Included in the retreat are individual Ayurvedic beauty and detox treatments as well as therapeutic massage and aromatherapy. Pancha Karma heavily incorporates the use of therapeutic oils, both internally and externally. All body treatments are ramped up with the use of cold-pressed organic rare Amazonian fruit and nut oils for extra luxury and deep nourishment. All treatments are included in the retreat price.
This year we are blessed to have Laura Paulini as our resident yoga teacher. Laura has an extensive knowledge of yoga, Ayurveda, meditation, energetic anatomy and astrology. Her classes bring together yin and yang yoga postures, guided meditation and ritual. The yoga classes are appropriate for all levels offering variations for beginners and more advanced students as well as therapeutic modifications in case of injuries. Morning yoga and pre-sunset yoga classes happen every day and the beautiful yoga space will always be available to you for private practice.
Providing the body with only raw vegetable juice is one of the best ways to assist the body to break down fat reserves and encourage the body to detoxify. When the body is flooded with liquid nutrients, the digestive system can finally rest and redistribute excess energy for cellular rejuvenation and repair. The body needs to be correctly prepared for a juice fast in order for the multiple benefits to be received. This program fully addresses this often-neglected juice-fast fundamental.
Our aim is a complete digestive system restoration. The food experience focuses on simple and cleans foods, carefully integrated with the profound benefits of raw juice fasting. All food is as fresh, locally grown and organic as humanly possible. Meals are a combination of tasty Ayurvedic and Macrobiotic dishes. We will explore the concept of Secondary Nutrition: eating with all out senses. In this detox, there is no starving or suffering involved.
Utilising raw ingredients from Peru draws from one of Earth’s most potent sources of natural healing botanicals, not to mention home to some of the most nutrient dense food on earth. Many of Peru’s revered Amazonian botanicals and famous superfoods appear in the retreat products, treatments and of course diet: directly from source.
When we’re not lounging poolside, and some brainpower is needed, I have some informative info-shares ready to go. The post-detox opportunity is so juicy and ripe for change; it’s extremely beneficial to leave the retreat armed with a few new healing food recipes. We will have access to the fabulous KiChic open kitchen where we will get together and create some tasty magic.
The Amaveda Detox Retreat is all-inclusive, no extras.
Included in the retreat:
“This is the best thing I have ever done for my body, I feel rewarded on all levels and blessed for knowing you. You have a very powerful gift! Share it with a lot of people who will benefit from all your knowledge and wonderful products.”
