Panchakarma cleanse

1st December 2024

From 2024 Virginia will be offering panchakarma cleansing in Devon UK.

Panchakarma means ‘5 actions’ and is a fully residential, longer deeper cleanse process.

“I had planned this wonderful trip to India as my first step into retirement, and it was the perfect decision. The retreat is well organised by Virginia Compton with all your needs catered for. I had planned to extend my visit to Kerala by two weeks to explore a bit more of the area. Shibu Krishna was on hand during my stay at the retreat to help me plan my onward journey. He arranged transport and booked hotels for me at each place I visited. He made the process seamless and absolutely perfect. Without a doubt, I would recommend this retreat in India, and with the guaranteed sunshine, wonderful scenery and kind gentle people – Kerala will be the place I visit again.”

About Yoga & Ayurveda

Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences and it is recommended that they are always practised alongside one another.

From online courses, one day retreats in the UK, to two week retreats in Kerala, South India.

Step away from ordinary everyday life for a while, and let us support and nourish you in whatever way you need.

Having never been to India and travelling on my own, I could not ask for more helpful, kind, knowledgeable and supportive people. The retreat is a true world away and an oasis of tranquillity and peace. A wonderful place to reset and offers a rich variety of ways to realign your body, mind and health.
I could not recommend it enough.

“Virginia is amazingly committed and dedicated to every individual under her care.
I attended an ayurveda cleansing retreat organised by her in November 2022.
Unusually, she arranged to meet all the participants prior to the retreat and sent questionnaires for us to complete so she knew much about us before the event. Her personal engagement with each of us meant we trusted her. She provided specific treatment and massages for each of us. Her high level of expertise combined with her interest in each person is truly commendable.”
