Wellness and Lifestyle Retreat 6-13 May, Doftana Valley

Integrative Life is organizing 7 days of complete retreat and lifestyle program: yoga, Qi gong, tea ceremony, meditation, nutrition courses, cooking classes and organic whole food plant based diet meals.
The mountain villa is located in Doftana Vally, Romania’s Carpathian Mountains, a quiet and perfect place for outdoor activities.
We’ll have a special guest at this retreat. Dr. Michael Hollie will be with us the entire retreat, helping us to understand how good or bad food effects the chronic illnesses and how a change of diet can dramatically reverse them.
Our program is designed to teach the individual a new way of life, which even if not followed thoroughly, will produce significant positive health results. Research driven whole food plant based diet will be discussed in detail, followed by cooking classes using organic ingredients provided by our nutritionist Farid Alipour, who received his training from T. Colin Campbell’s Center for Nutrition Studies, Cornell University.

Our Yoga classes will help you increase your flexibility and also build strength, ensuring a healthy musculoskeletal system.
Qi Gong classes will help you control your breathing better, thereby increasing your energy level and also reducing your stress levels.
Through our meditation classes you will learn how to be objective and become an observer; you will better understand how the body and mind function interdependently and the impact of their function on your daily experience of life.
In 2004, Master Farid Alipour started visiting China and Taiwan regularly, learning from chinese masters, deepening his knowledge in the Dao philosophy.
He discovered the Gong-fu Tea Ceremony culture in detail and now he helps the others to discover and understand the terrific tastes and healthful aspects of one of the world’s oldest and most widely consumed beverages of all times.
We incorporate reconnecting with nature into our program by organising the retreat in a scenic countryside resort, surrounded by mountains and rivers.
At our retreats new friendships are binding between people that share same values and goals for having a healthy happy life.
We have created also a suport group formed from retreats participants, their families and friends.
