I'm not vegan. Will I starve?
This is the Number 1 concern from all previous participants and trust me, I get asked this more than any other question. The answer is actually, no, you will not starve - you will not even feel hungry! The food served is nutrient dense with plenty of protein and fibre - both of which help you feel full without overeating. The plant based menu serves your microbiome (good gut bacteria) which aids your overall health, particularly in the areas of immunity and digestive function. Most participants report a feeling of lightness on the final day, as if they've re-set their digestive system. No-one has ever reported feeling hungry. In fact, the food is what most participants enjoy most about the retreat!
What does a typical day look like on the retreat?
We practice breathing, yoga and meditation together twice daily: once in the morning at 8am and again at 4pm. The practice usually lasts two hours and consists of a breathing exercise which lasts around 10 minutes, followed by a yoga practice for around 75 minutes, a seated meditation (10-20 minutes) and a resting pose (savasana) for around 10 minutes.
