Basubu says

Full-body massages and facials are great. But plunging into ancient cleansing therapies in the sacred city of Kathmandu is another level of relaxation. This 15-day retreat is ideal for any yogi or wellness enthusiast in need of a total mind, body and soul detox. Alongside experienced instructors, you’ll experience the nourishing benefits of traditional cleansing, fasting, yoga asana and meditation. Each day is dedicated to a new therapy, with classes on Shirodhara, Reiki, music healing, foot reflexology and much more. You can also expect mouth-watering vegan and vegetarian meals. 
2 yoga sessions per day
Daily herbal tea and drinking water
Towel and slippers included
Daily therapy session on main retreat days
3 vegetarian or vegan meals daily
Library of yoga literature
