Jiva Healing Retreats

Reliably relaxing healthy eating, detoxing and yoga retreats

In a nutshell: Jiva Healing is an experienced retreat company offering potentially life changing healthy holidays on set dates throughout the year that pivot on healthy food, detoxing and yoga, from vegetarian cooking holidays to juice fasting detox retreats. Established in 2003 by nutritionist Rebecca Andrist and entrepreneur Melissa Kendall, the company never takes more than 12-14 guests on each retreat so there’s lots of time for questions, help and connection. Locations are chosen for their natural settings, and many of their holidays are held in seaside locations.

How many stars would you give this retreat? :

We decided to try a Juice Fasting and Yoga long weekend as a couple with Rebecca and her team at Littleton Mill in Wiltshire a couple of weeks ago. We both felt that we needed a complete detox plus, an understanding of really healthy diet and how to achieve a reasonable level of fitness and peace of mind.
Unbelievable, what a fantastic and rewarding time spent in a fabulous location. Firstly, you haven’t got a care in the world, you get a timetable telling you where you need to be and when, you get to do yoga with the wonderful Halina twice a day, and everybody getting together to have juice is a great bonding experience. We both got really into the Yoga and have signed up for classes locally, it just made us feel so good. There is no doubt that we both came away from the retreat feeling physically and mentally stronger and we are absolutely committed to carrying on. Thank you team JIVA, see you again very soon.


Dear Cathy and Don, it was so wonderful to have the two of you along on our Juice Fasting and Yoga retreat at Littleton Mill. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you both and are so glad that you both loved the retreat and the gorgeous location.

How many stars would you give this retreat? :

I attended the one week fasting retreat in turkey. It was the best decision for my health I could make. I came with a bacterial infection and indigestion. Both gone after the retreat. I blame it on:
– the organic green juices (I juice-fasted 5 days and lightly ate 2 days)
– daily (amazing) yoga classes
– living right at the sea (jump in any time of the day)
– very nice people
– Rebecca, the very caring and genuine host of the retreat

Could I travel in time and decide again if I book this retreat, would I book it? You can probably guess. YES!!! I’m sure I will attend another Yuva retreat in the future. 🙂
