Exercise, Meditation and Relaxation: Each morning at 8am there is Meditation and Yoga.
Every evening there is meditation. Attendance to both of these is highly recommended as these
are designed to assist in your detoxification process.

During the detoxification process, blockages and tensions held in the physical, mental and emotional
levels of the body are released, these practices help you to let go of them, to relax properly and to
sleep more comfortably. During the day you can relax, swim, have a therapy session, explore and
walk around the area and help out in the organic gardens. There are a collection of videos and DVD's
of related subjects and movies to watch. On alternate days the Sauna is on in the early evening.
The Hot Tub is on every day. One day each week we have an outing, weather dependent, either to
