Why Fast?

Fasting has a variety of benefits for the physical, emotional and spiritual body. It allows the digestive system to rest and recharge, allowing a detoxification of the body, leading to improved mental clarity and releases toxins gently.

We warmly invite you to relax, encourage you to have a digital time out and press PAUSE on hectic life!

Deeper Sleep

Once you start to release the toxins, you’ll reduce stress and sleep better.

Body Shape Shifting

More energy and aids weight loss. Decrease in pain and reduced bodily inflammation.

Mental Clarity

When you detox the body you detox the brain and vice versa. In clearing your brain, you improve mental function.

Deeper Meditation & Pranayama Practice

Fasting brings balance to the physical, emotional. Slows down the time and creates time for inner stillness.

This 4-days, 3 nights detox-cleanse is a wonderful introduction to fasting and will have many positive results. Treat yourself on this inspiring yoga holiday to southern Portugal. Be surrounded by stunning beauty such as our 3 world class beaches all within walking distance to the Yoga studio!
