Apoyo Lodge Yoga and Detox Retreat Nicaragua Program

Apoyo Lodge is offering you in their spring detox retreat program the opportunity to join a limited amount of determined participants who will embark on a guided 7-night detox journey to help their bodies get back on track and enhance their natural elimination and cleansing mechanisms. Healing the body does not happen overnight, but it needs to start somewhere and where could it be better than by the shore of a natural crater lagoon that is known for its medicinal healing waters in the company of a group of like-minded individuals?

Your body is so wise, you wouldn’t believe it! It was designed to keep itself clean and healthy by just following your natural instincts. Detoxing has played a crucial role in human history across most cultures and religions, it is not just a trendy thing for celebrities to do these days. Unfortunately, most of today's western lifestyles don't support the body's mission of getting rid of the junk it no longer needs.

Instead, most people overload their systems with damaging chemicals, toxins and fake foods/drinks with low nutritional value on a daily basis, which adds an incredible amount of work to your cleansing organs. When your body is not eliminating waste properly, chronic health problems, fatigue or unwanted extra pounds will irremediably become part of your life.

What can you do about it? Don't worry, this is exactly what retreat has been designed to answer: this detox camp is designed to help you jump-start a holistic cleansing process and provide you with the tools you need to continue this journey on your own when you get back home. It is not rocket science, but you need to know where to start, right?

During this week, you will:

Eat the right food and drink the right fluids: a combination of fresh juices, filling smoothies and hearty soups to nourish your body whilst giving it a chance to do some much needed internal cleansing. In between, you will be drinking coconut water and herbal teas that support liver, gallbladder, and kidney detoxification. Plenty of water of course!

Practice the perfect yoga and meditation routines to help eliminate the toxins from your bloodstream in a gentle and restorative way.

Relax by the lagoon, swim in its pristine healing waters and get pampered throughout the week with our healing therapies.

Learn the basics of keeping your body healthy and clean during our informative workshops and activities.

Meet with Miriam for a one-on-one session to discuss your particular health goals and to draft a plan of action to take home with you.
