Course description

Most people subject their bodies to harmful lifestyles and diets that inhibit the body’s ability to cleanse and heal. Eating a poor diet of processed foods clogs up the digestive system with waste materials and prevents our bodies from absorbing vital nutrients, which can lead to health problems over time. Fasting allows an incredibly effective cleansing process to take place in the body that reaches down to each and every cell and tissue. All your organs receive a well-deserved rest and a much-needed clear out. After 24 hours of not eating, the energy used for digestion is redirected towards clearing out the waste matter, dead and damaged cells, blood gas, microbes, parasites and other toxins from your system. Without the chemical interference of stimulants like caffeine, nicotine, sugar and alcohol, your body is able to find a better natural balance. A professional nutritional adviser will support you throughout the fasting process and optional one-to-one nutritional consultations will also be available for anyone wanting to go into more depth regarding their personal health story. During the fast you will consume organic fruit and vegetable juices, spirulina and vegetable broth to provide you with the vitamins and minerals you need to nurture your body, and detoxifying herbs will aid in the cleansing process. Psyllium husks will provide cleansing bulk and help stave off physical hunger. Self-administered enemas are done twice daily to help the body to eliminate toxins. Daily yoga is complemented by fun and informative classes on nutrition and healthy eating, sustainable living, meditation and happiness. (Fasting is not safe for people who are very underweight, clinically obese, pregnant, diabetic, suffering from kidney disease or certain cancers. Please contact us if you have any concerns about your health that you would like to discuss further before arrival).

    Wow what a feeling! I wasn't sure how much I was going to get out of a week of drinking nothing but juices, green drinks and clear broths, but as I said on my way home, "I have never felt this good!" I really did find out a lot about my health and happiness, and I have used a lot of the practical methods we learnt during the week to keep myself off caffeine, wheat and dairy. Believe me I never would have thought that possible! I would advise everyone I know to take a break and go on one of Jiva's retreats with an open mind and open ears. You won't regret it and it might just save your life! From Jiva Healing Testimonials Page

    Curious to find out what effect doing a detox could have on my body, combined with the desire to visit Goa in 2009, landed me quite fortunately on the Jiva Healing website. What a difference 6 days have made! For me it has been life changing. Gone are days of constant tiredness, a side effect I have carried for over 10 years as he result of a long-term illness. Five weeks on I still have a marked difference in my energy level; I feel more alert with the added bonus of been 5 kilos lighter - yes that is just from 6 days of living off juices. I was amazed how easy it was. Goa and the JIva Healing team were the perfect combination - Rebecca was extremely supportive and attentive to everyone of us throughout the week. Goa was simply the perfect place to be in order to fully detox and unwind the body, mind and soul. Everyone should have the opportunity to give it a go, after all, it's only a week!

    The Jiva retreat that I attended was run in a very supportive environment by experienced, enthusiastic, and informed people with true conviction about what they do. Invest a week of your time and reap the benefits for years to come. I loved it and I will definitely do it again. From Jiva Healing Testimonials Page

    The difference with a Jiva Healing retreat and various others that I have attended, is that at Jiva, there is a real family vibe. I met so many wonderful people, people who in my day-to-day life I would probably never know. It was amazing how such a lovely group of people came together, and I made some very special connections.

    I hoped that my week of fasting would leave me rested, relaxed and full of ideas about even better ways to eat. It did so in spades. When I got home to London I felt brilliant, better than I can ever remember. The staff at Jiva that week were fantastic, each with their particular skills, expertise, and manner, making up an excellent team. I would say that anyone who is stressed and really feels like they need a break, while knowing that regular holidays just don't deliver, should definitely go and juice fast for a week. For some people I know and love, I wouldn't just recommend it, I'd prescribe it. From Jiva Healing Testimonials Page

    The Creative Cooking, Conscious Eating and Yoga Retreat with Jiva Healing was simply amazing. First of all, Rebecca provided excellent instructions on getting to the retreat and I made it there early (even with the jet lag coming from Arizona, USA). Probably the best thing was the food. Such a large variety of deliciousness made from all vegan ingredients. Even now I'm attempting to make some of the meals today. Another great thing was the yoga, we had morning and evening sessions that were perfect for energy and relaxation. It was just enough to be challenging and Jemima, the yoga teacher, made every effort to be accommodating for all body types. My last comment is the company. We were a small group of 10 people from all varieties of life. I was made to feel comfortable within a day of being there. I truly wish that the retreat had gone on longer. I had planned my vacation for a weekend at the retreat and then 5 days in London. I now wish that it had been 5 days of retreat and 2 days in London! I'm looking forward to saving up for the next retreat with Jiva Healing. Namaste and Thank you Rebecca, Jemima, and everyone else! Dr. Scott Daniel From Jiva Healing Testimonials Page

    I find to fast periodically to be physically liberating and mentally profound, and Jiva Healing was both experiences. Jiva Healing created a structure to the day with classes on nutrition and sustainability. This was informative and ensured that you had some rational reasons as to why you were doing the fast and offered strong routes of understanding to continue when back in the comfort of your own home and surrounded by your old habits. It had all the aspects of an amazing holiday sun, sea, good company, some learning, laughing, relaxing, lots of sleep.just no food! I came home bounding with energy and raring to go, looking and feeling great. It is definitely worth it. A totally indulgent treat just for you. From Jiva Healing Testimonials Page

    A truly wonderful and self-indulgent experience! The Jiva Healing team help you to detox your body and your mind from the inside out. The week itself was the beginning of a journey to help me achieve a better balance in my life. I defy anyone who attends not to come home feeling rejuvenated and motivated, ready to take on new challenges and a new way of life. Rebecca, Mel and the team make everyone feel like one big family - I have taken part in the juice fasting week twice now and I intend to keep coming back. In fact, it makes me feel emotional just thinking about it all again. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and time. You guys are great. From Jiva Healing Testimonials Page

The program is very thorough and the staff is like a collective of mothers, ready to help at anytime. Often, during fasting, I prefer to be alone, which is also possible in the chosen locations. Whatever you want (apart from food!) is never far on these retreats: love, new friends, yoga, better health and maybe even a little mothering if you feel the need. From Jiva Healing Testimonials Page
