2018 Ayurveda Panchakarma Retreat

Mark your calendars!  Fire Mountain Retreat has set its dates for 2018 Ayurvedic Panchakarma Retreats:



Come find spiritual peace and physical healing by detoxifing from modern life's stressers and the resultant accumulation of toxins.

You will be treated by two professional Ayurvedic doctors and our team of trained therapists, as well as bask in the sacred energy of the great spiritual being Bhagwan Nityananda and the blessed Fire Mountain area, enjoy the geo thermal hotsprings on the property, eat clean healthy food specifically designed for your body, and relax and heal amidst this natural setting.

Daily schedule will include Ayurveda treatments morning and afternoons, daily massage and/or specific  treatments for your health challenges, yoga and meditation, emotional release and support, sunrise and sunset agnihotra. Transportation is available to take you to Ganeshpuri to receive Nityananda's darshan and blessings and visit some of the many sacred pilgrimage sites.

The Seven Day Retreat does not qualify as a "Detoxification" program which requires at least fifteen days, but you will benefit greatly from receiving 4-5 Ayurveda spa treatments daily.



According to Ayurveda, good health depends upon our capabilty to fully metabolize all aspects of life, assimilating that which nourishes and eliminating the rest. When we can't completely digest our food, experiences, and emotions, toxins accumulate in our bodily tissues, creating imbalance and -ultimately- disease. In addition, modern society has become a toxic assault on the human body, from pesticides, herbicides, household cleaners, building materials to air pollution, noise pollution and water pollution.  Panchakarma is an elegant cleansing process that releases stored pollutants and restores the body's innate healing ability.

Specially trained therapists must administer these cleansing procedures in a definite sequence for a specified period of time.  Although Panchakarma is for the most part a delightful and comfortable therapy, there can be periods of discomfort associated with the profound release of toxins, which does occur.  It is therefore, essential that a knowledgable expert who can recognize the signs of properly and improperly administered Pancharkarma tretments and supervise the entire therapy.



Fortunately, Fire Mountain Retreat's Panchakarma Program is overseen by the highly competent, esteemed, and gracious Dr. Rahul Sonawane.  Either Dr. Sonawane or his kind, knowledgable, and attentive assistant, Dr. Chinmay,  will be overseeing the entire Fifteen Day and Seven Day Retreats and are available to answer questions about one's health and ayurveda's place in one's life.

Fire Mountain Retreat has trained fourteen of their full time staff in the healing techniques of Ayurveda. Eight men and eight women therapists are available during all retreat programs. During non retreat days, our Ayurveda therapists are available every day by appointment.
