Restorative Spring Detox Retreat
April 12-14, 2019
Nourish is a two-night retreat in the heart of the Italian countryside designed for you to take pause from your everyday life and deeply nourish the body, mind, and soul. It is an opportunity to reconnect to yourself: who you are…and who you are becoming.
The weekend we will be aligning with the spring season to cleanse the body of the heavy damp cold of winter and lighten up on a mental, physical, and emotional level. We call it a restorative detox because sustainable cleansing and healing of the body and mind requires wisdom, gentleness, and rest—as taught in the ancient systems of healing such as Ayurveda. The yoga classes have been designed to support a restorative detoxification process in the body and the meals will give the body a chance to restore the digestive fire. You will leave feeling lighter and leaner. Finally, the digital detox ethos of Eremito provides you with a very rare, but incredibly valuable, opportunity to ‘’disconnect to reconnect’’ to your Self.
Yoga and meditation sessions will be offered twice daily by Sheila Chacko to guide you into a more whole and healthy relationship with your body and soul. Delicious and detoxifying plant based meals (vegan and gluten-free) will be crafted with love by Morgan Witkin of Morganic Kitchen. There will ample time for rest, walking in the surrounding forests, and daily use of the spa (jacuzzi and steam bath) is included.
Beyond a deep experiential immersion during these three days, we will be teaching theory and practical information about how to integrate the practices of detoxification into your daily life. You will go home with valuable tools to support the creation of daily habits that nourish all levels of your being.
Slow down and take rest.
Allow space and time for healing and transformation.
Let us Nourish you.
Eremito is an eco-hotel and contemporary hermitage found in the ‘’Green Heart of Italy’’, Umbria. Here, luxury in the third millennium is being redefined as Silence, Nature, Simplicity and a return to the Essential. Nestled in 3,000 hectares of forest, the nights are deep black, the silence in dense, and the peace is palpable. Eremito is leading the way in the digital detox phenomenon and is known for its signature silent dinner. A Design Hotel and architectural spectacle, the simple sophistication of Eremito lends to slowing down and calming the mind. www. eremito .com

With her Health Coaching practice, Morgan’s aim as a mentor is to help individuals execute diet and lifestyle changes in order to promote overall sustainable wellness.
Morgan notes, “The more I learn, the more I become convinced of the fact that our bodies have the perfect capacity to heal themselves through food. Morganic Kitchen is the place in which healthy, wholesome and delicious food is created and recipes are shared. I believe that food should nourish us from the inside out. Food should be genuine and kind: kind to our bodies and kind to nature. Although Morganic Kitchen is strictly vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free, I make sure that my recipes are full of flavor and variety while nourishing. With Morganic Kitchen, I hope to both inspire and teach so we can all become the best versions of ourselves while living lives full of joy, wellness, serenity and satisfaction.”
