Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) is an emirate in the UAE, renowned for its impressive mountains.
This comprehensive restoration programme takes place in the serene Yanas mountain retreat with our Remarkable Transformer, Benoit Demeulemeester. It’s designed to detoxify, nourish and assist your body and mind to achieve better health and inner peace.
Upon arrival, a TCM doctor (Traditional Chinese Medicine) will assess your health and provide you with an approach to building your body’s natural defenses.
The six-day retreat will be a water fast for five full days (120 hours), where you will learn more about your body, mind, and spirit. The retreat uses water fasting as the most effective way of supporting the body’s natural ability to cleanse itself. After the fifth day of fasting, you will celebrate by breaking your fast.
Throughout your stay you will also take part in yoga, stretches, Sadhu board practice, walks, meditations, and other experiences that aim to improve your health and well-being. Massages, acupuncture, and cupping will pamper you throughout the fast. There will be informative videos covering a broad range of topics around the benefits of fasting, breathing techniques, acupuncture, liver flushing, and many more.
While many guests come as part of their commitment to themselves to live a healthier life, this retreat is also effective in addressing a wide range of conditions such as stress, anxiety, weight loss, diabetes, addictions, chronic fatigue syndrome, high blood pressure, cholesterol and low self-esteem. Previous guests of this retreat say that these six days marked a positive turning point in their lives.
