Holistic detox

Holistic detox is a deep work to remove your physical toxins, emotional, and mental with a with a careful program of restoration and maintenance of an intact digestive tract. Did you know that 80% of the immune system is located in the intestine and the intestine is your second brain?

The slagging of the intestinal villi and deposits in the intestinal tract due to a poor diet, poisons, stress, medication, etc. can lead to deficiency states and diseases, even with a healthy and vital nutritious diet

To accompany this detox, you will use the tools of yoga and holistic psychology. In the yoga tradition, the work with the chakras is an important part of it. Here, there will be an included systematic schedule of practice across every chakra within the context of a philosophy that is both pragmatic and transcendental to prepare you in every way for this great adventure in consciousness.

On the other hand, this practice will also be combined with healing workshops which dynamics also try to develop awareness and exploration of these energy centres in an easy and relaxed way.

Yoga and meditations balance dual energies, restoring inner peace, and deep states of relaxation of the body as well as the mind through simple practices will result in a wonderful inner balance which is ideal for enjoying the yoga and the charms of this magnetic Mediterranean coastline.

Dhara Wellness Garden’s vision is to accompany you holistically and competently during the detox process through Bach flower remedies, changing the limiting beliefs, family constellations, and psychological counselling and coaching.

Location

Benimeli is situated north of Segaria Valley and is regarded as the very northern part of the Costa Blanca coastline. The sun is said to shine here 320 days a year. Segaria Valley and Javea are divided by the Montgo mountain – said to resemble a sleeping elephant. The area is certainly spectacular and offers a number of walking routes.

Benimeli is on the coast and the 20 km of beaches (15 min. by car) are of very high quality. Every year the beaches are awarded the European Blue Flag for their water quality and clean fine sand

Les Rotes is a nature area with no boats allowed and has a variety of marine life to see. Snorkelling and scuba diving are very popular in this section of Denia. This part of the coast is protected including the natural dunes, caves, plants, and wildlife. A footpath allows you to walk from Denia marina all the way to the lighthouse which is a few kilometres.

What past guests have said

Review by Manjit Hansra from United States
March 24, 2019 “Amazing amazing amazing!!!
”This retreat is guaranteed to change your life. I went with my husband who has been on many before but this was my first time and we both had life shifting experiences. If you are looking for a way to change something in your life, this is the step in the right direction.

Ana and Javier are also some of the kindest, compassionate , caring people you will meet. They went above and beyond to help us with our goals we had and were able to get a very personalised experience given the limited people per visit. Javier is a great cook too!! Lots of healthy recipes to learn. Enjoyed practising Yoga and sharing meals and in depth conversation about life, spirituality and growing as a person and couple. This is worth the investment”.

Review by Lisa Gwinnett from Netherlands
November 28, 2018 “Straight from their hearts!
”There aren’t enough words to describe my eternal gratitude to Javier and Ana for helping me connect with my inner thoughts, soul and heart. What they have created is so special and has been built with love and straight from their hearts and desire to help people. Help people heal, help people connect with themselves, help people to explore their energy and more.

Their individual and intimate approach ensures this; They haven’t set out to fill “bums on seats” with a commercial retreat. They’ve developed a program which is tailored to each person. That’s why you’ll only find 2/3 other people with you in the retreat.

Their goal is to understand your objectives, your history and context and develop a plan across meditation, yoga and holistic workshops to help you. They genuinely care about each person that steps through the door – their hearts are so big and full! I loved every moment of my time here. I was so emotional to leave but so excited and energised to take what I had learnt with me. I would recommend anyone reading this and contemplating this retreat to just book!!! You won’t regret it. On top of everything above, the food is amazing (which for a lover of meat I didn’t expect to fall in love with as much as I did ?), the village is so peaceful, and the massages are incredible. I’ll definitely be back!”. Gracias Ana and Javier

Review by Anne Daynes from Great Britain
November 6, 2018 “This is so much more than a Yoga Retreat!”
”Firstly the yoga is phenomenal – so much better than I have experienced in the UK. The workshops: Reiki, Family Constellation and Bach flowers attune to where you need healing most. The food……. oh my not only was it delicious but by detoxing from dairy, meat, wheat and sugar I lost 6 lbs! Javier and Ana cannot do enough for you during your stay. We had a trip to the beach and the shopping mall as added extras! This experience has been truly unforgettable and for me life changing. My greatest fear by writing this review is that it will be fully booked when I want to return!”.

Review by Miguel Meza from United States
October 8, 2018 “Amazing Experience at Dhara Wellness”
”I liked everything. From the cozy homey environment to the unbeatable location in a quite valley. The class was enlightening and thorough. The food was homemade and delicious. Javier even arranged a lease on a bicycle so that I could see the valley and the surrounding towns. Overall this experience is unrivalled in comparison to other retreats I’ve gone for classes.”
