Yoga and Detox Retreat
Refresh body and mind with a Yoga and Detox Retreat at Ard Nahoo. Take time to eat well, exercise and enjoy nature on this transformational holiday. Each day will begin with a yoga class, designed to wake up tired muscles and kick start the day. This will be followed by an 'Uisce Hour', which will eliminate toxins, burn calories and soothe muscles. After a healthy vegan meal we'll set off for a walk through the stunning Leitrim countryside, and take in the delights this beautiful county has to offer. When we return to Ard Nahoo, there is some free time for you to rest and relax before a light meal of soup and salad is served in the evening.
For the first time, you can now enjoy the benefits of this retreat on the Yoga and Detox Day Retreat. Starting with the morning yoga class, before a fresh smoothie, Uisce Hour, beautiful lunch, guided walk and restorative yoga, this day is the perfect way to kick start a detox.
If you have any questions about the detox, or would like some more information, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 087 921 8906.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this a weight loss programme?
Weight loss is not the aim of this retreat (though it is often a welcome addition). We see this retreat as a way to kick start a healthier regime, to flush toxins from the body and to feel radiant with health. This retreat requires a reasonable level of physical fitness, as we are exercising regularly. If you have any concerns about the level of activity, please contact us.
What kind of food will I eat?
Every day we will be eating delicious organic vegan food, based mostly fresh fruits and vegetables. There will also be one freshly squeezed juice a day. This is not a 'fast'; it is a healthy diet based on excellent ingredients, designed to cleanse the body. You should never feel you are going hungry, nor should you 'starve' the body. Foods eliminated on this retreat are meat, wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs, caffeine and sugar. Without the usual heaviness of meat and gluten in the diet, be aware that you will never have the same full feeling even though you will be eating plenty of healthy nutritious food.
Do I have to do anything to prepare?
In the week before the retreat, we ask participants to remove caffeine, sugar and processed foods from their diet. This means that by the time the retreat begins, no one will be in the withdrawal stage - with headaches and tempers! This means we can all get the maximum benefit from the plan.
Do I share a room?
The price of this retreat is based on a sharing rate. However, there are single rooms available. Please mention this when booking.
Am I monitored?
No. This retreat is based on the idea that those in attendance want to get the most of the five days. It is also based on a group mentality - we will all support each other and work together. After the first day of the retreat, participants are expected to know their routine and also to pitch in and help when required (eg clearing their plates away, loading the dishwasher etc). This karma yoga philosophy is how we run all of our retreats. While we will be here at every step of the retreat, and have plenty of contact with the participants, this is not a 'hand holding' programme!
In order to secure a booking, we require a 50% booking deposit (€195). Full payment is required a month prior to the retreat. If a cancellation is made more than a month in advance, the security deposit is returned (minus a handling fee). If a cancellation is made with a month prior to the cancellation, deposits are returned provided the space is filled.
If you have any questions about this retreat, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
