I did the ayurveda detox with Paula in the middle of August and it was an amazing experience. At the start I didn’t know what to expect. I knew it would affect me in a positive way, but I was very surprised with the whole process and the unexpected benefits of doing it.
It gave me the space to reflect and understand how the food I eat, and my habits were affecting my life and it was a powerful tool to help me move forward and beyond old habits.
During of the detox, Paula was following each step with me. She was supportive, she tailored the programme based on my necessities at that moment and the treatments were just incredible. Every time I had it my body, mind and soul felt happy and grateful.
Everything, from the diet, saunas, ayurvedic consultation and treatments was just perfect.
When I finished the detox my energy levels were higher than ever, every food tasted marvellous. It was like having reset my whole system. My mind was clear and my perception was enriched.
The best part of all is having a programme to follow, to keep doing the little changes and feel the huge benefits in my everyday life. The detox wasn’t something that I did, and it had an end. It was the start that I needed to be able to reach my willpower to live and to sustain a happier and healthier life.

Throughout the week of the detox I started to feel so much better that I didn’t mind following the diet even if that meant eliminating sugar and sweets. Sweets have always been a big temptation for me and I didn’t think I would have been able to completely cut them out from my diet. But I did! The results achieved have been mind-blowing:
- A great sense of lightness of the body, especially in the abdominal area.
- Softer skin of the face and the body.
- The inflammation of the knuckle of my left index finger is healed. For the last few months my finger has been swollen and red. It has been so painful that I couldn’t touch it or properly use it for picking up things.
- Overall I feel more peaceful and relaxed.
Paula has been very supportive and understanding with my needs. I couldn’t have hoped for a more dedicated and professional guidance. She has also put together a detailed list of changes and improvements as a part of the after-care programme. I am now looking forward to changing some of my old habits, incorporating the new ones and experiencing the benefits!

The detox programme offered by Paula at Ashtanga Yoga Dublin is fantastic.
Everything is perfectly structured to support you through the week, in order to achieve the best results.
I felt tired both physically and mentally and I was looking for something that would help me to boost my energy and mood.
From day two, my body started to feel less bloated and lighter. My physical energy slowly came back. This has been very noticeable during the mornings and in the evenings. In the mornings it often takes me a while to feel fully awakened and to start my routine. In the evenings I always feel physically and mentally exhausted. These feelings completely changed during the week of the detox. I felt full of energy and mentally stronger. More focused and positive in the mornings and more peaceful in the evenings.
The detox helped me re-establish a positive and stronger mind and a healthier body. And this is only the start!
Paula has also developed an after-care programme that will support me in the future weeks. I couldn’t be more thankful and excited to see how these changes will impact my life.
If you are looking for a positive change, don’t think twice. Go for it!
Recently I completed the Ayurvedic detox under the guidance of Paula.
The 9 day program was very effective in detoxing both inside and outside of my body.
To start the program Paula took her time explaining the whole process. I followed her instructions and I started enjoying the benefits from day one, as I have a very hectic life. I have to pause, take time for myself, relax and change many of my daily habits from eating to sleeping and even my yoga practice. The treatments were very soothing. The infrared sauna had a phenomenal effect on my joints and muscles. In my experience the detox diet was not too difficult. After the whole detox program I could see the glow in my face and the lightness of my body. A week after completing the program my digestive tract feels in optimum condition.
Thank You Paula
I found the whole experience amazing. There was so much to it – Ayurvedic treatments, saunas, a new yoga routine, fresh culinary skills and much more. I learnt so much and am looking forward to when I choose to repeat the process again. Paula is so informative and her knowledge of everything put together is a treat. Everyone definitely deserves the detox programme.
After a summer of being out of my routine and eating less than optimally(!) I was really looking forward to resetting during my Ayurveda Detox with Paula in October. I certainly wasn’t disappointed. I expected to see improvements in digestion, sleep etc during the Detox (and I definitely did) but what I wasn’t expecting was how nurturing and restorative the entire process was. It felt like being in a cocoon of wellness for mind, body and soul for the week. Paula spent considerable time doing a deep-dive into my health history, diet, and daily routines and made wonderfully helpful, personalised recommendations for during the Detox and after the programme. The treatments were divine – relaxing but effective – and I loved the infrared sauna sessions. The simple diet of lentils and rice together with cleansing herbal tea was no hardship and left me feeling nourished but lighter.
Paula was on-hand to support and guide throughout the week and the entire experience was incredibly positive. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
