Paris Knight's program goes way beyond the standard detox/juicing retreats, it has been created for holistic transformation as they not only focus on cleansing and rejuvenating the physical body but the mind and emotions too, as these play a key roll in wellness.
Their live healing music and sound profoundly complements the physical cleansing due to its soothing and calming effects on the body and mind.
It's well known that chronic stress levels greatly hinder the bodies ability to detoxify, therefore it is crucially important to come into a calm state of being to enable detoxification. It is with this understanding that Paris Knight designed this unique detox retreat using live healing sound and meditational music as it has been scientifically proven that certain kinds of music switch on the parasympathetic nervous system which affectively brings the nervous system into balance and significantly reduces the often-overactive sympathetic nervous system known as "fight or flight".
Combining detox, healing sound/music with the use of breathwork, yoga and the deeply nurturing surroundings of lapping waves, the beautiful surroundings and the breeze through swaying palm trees, you are set to feel profoundly renewed and replenished.
You will leave not only with a calm deep connection with yourself but also equipped with new practical knowledge for maintaining sustainable vibrant health and well-being. Paris Knight and Jason Kalidas will guide you through daily synergistic practices of yoga with live music, healing sound baths, and an expertly designed and thorough detox program that will nurture you into a new state of being.
Jason Kalidas works extensively with the healing power of sound and music together with the synergistic modalities of yoga, movement and live ecstatic dance to developing unique events and retreats.
He trained in Indian classical music on Bansuri and Tabla for over 20 years with master musicians in the ancient city of Varanasi and spent much of his life in the sacred sites of India engaged in the paths of yoga.
Jason performs Indian classical and fusion music worldwide on Bansuri (Indian Classical flute) and now creates live acoustic /electronica music for yoga and dance retreats and events, etc. Jason has been very involved in the world of Bhakti yoga and spent several years on tour supporting the world’s top Kirtan-chant artists on Tabla. He also teaches classes and workshops in the geometry of sound, yogic wisdom and body/mind detoxification.
Come into the body and out of the mind
Listening to and feeling the healing sounds of Jason Kalidas music, the body and mind are able to switch off the fight and flight function with far greater speed than normal, as his sacred musical gifts deliver a mediative relaxation that automatically moves you into the healing aspects of the parasympathetic nervous system.
Your bodies are unable to detoxify during fight or flight which is why they have combined the power of healing sound into their detoxification retreat.

They were designed with refined elegance and built and furnished by local artisans. Their cozy interiors inspire feelings of calm and serenity.
The cottage is luxurious and spacious beach cottage accommodation with a private balcony area. Each unique octagonal-shaped eco-cottage is made with recycled wood floating on stilts with palm-thatched roofs. All the accommodations are a step away from the beach.
