In this program on recovery with Durga Leela you will participate in and understand the need for the physical dimension of healing from addiction, including yogic diet and the daily practice of Yoga asanas (physical exercises suitable for all levels), pranayama (breathing exercises) and conscious relaxation.
This retreat offers a comprehensive program that integrates Ayurveda and Yoga with recovery tools and 12-Step Principles, for a holistic mind, body and spirit approach for all those affected by addiction and self-destructive behaviors, and for people with family members with histories of addiction.
We explore the root causes of addiction and healing from addiction using a multi-dimensional perspective, focusing on healing the physical body, strengthening the mind and cultivating Sattva—peace and serenity. Every age group and all addictive and self-destructive tendencies are addressed.
Among other things, you will also explore deeper aspects of the physical dimension of healing from addiction through Ayurveda, that works at healing and purifying the body and mind.
Please note: we require alcohol/chemically dependent guests to have at least three months of continuous sobriety. Those with eating disorders and behavioral addictions (relationships, gambling, spending, etc.) should have enough stability to embark on this work.
Private Ayurvedic consultations and body treatments will also be available (additional fee and pre-booking required).
