About this trip

A Five Day Yoga and Detox Retreat in a Permaculture Farm in India - When our bodies are out of balance it affects all parts of our lives, from our physical health, our relationships, energy levels and weight, to the way we manage stress and how we feel about ourselves.

Plant-based organic wellness and detox meals
Fresh healthy juices, smoothies, herbal teas, shots, colon cleansers

You will partake in a basic presentation on the principles of permaculture and its applications, including a tour of the farm led by PDC certified trainers, Sweta Pradhan and Sidhartha Blone.

The retreat includes one nature trail through rustic Nepali villages and settlements, leading into the beautiful Ambiok Forest.

What’s included

One's holistic wellness is a result of what one eats and hence foods that heal must be consumed. The principles of permaculture follow the principles of the slow food movement – ethical food production, ethical food consumption and connections to all aspects of life. The nourishment Petrichor Farm serves to their guests and volunteers is plant-based, seasonal food, all grown lovingly by them in their organic permaculture gardens. They aim to preserve cultural cuisine and so they are preserving the food plants and seeds, domestic animals and farming within their eco region.

The food served during the retreat is satvik and plant-based, which works as a wonderful alkalizing detoxifier to the system. They also offer separate raw, vegan and ayurvedic items, upon request.
