Return To Eden at Plant Medicine Yoga’s Ayurvedic Detox Retreat in St. Croix, USVI

This all-inclusive eco-retreat celebrates the intersection of herbal medicine and yoga.

The days are growing longer as we intuitively prepare for the abundance of Spring Equinox. Enter Return to Eden, an eco-friendly, full-spectrum holistic wellness retreat that takes place March 10-16, 2019. Set against the lush green backdrop of a tropical rainforest and just up the road from the rich blues of the Caribbean Sea, the setting for this unique retreat is an estate located on the grounds of solar-powered High Valley Orchard, just outside of Frederiksted, St. Croix. This intimate inaugural event combines the best consciously curated holistic offerings with fully modernized off-grid, sustainable living.


When: March 10-16, 2019

Where: High Valley Orchard, an estate just outside Frederiksted, St. Croix.

Retreat Activities: Attendees are encouraged to relax on the white sand beaches and hike through the foothills, while discovering safe and gentle plant allies to incorporate into their daily health and wellness routines.
