Sample Day at OHI
Our 21-day holistic program is formulated to bring harmony to your body, mind, and spirit. We do this by following daily schedule, like the monastic tradition. Each day is designed to ensure that your body’s natural rhythm is restored.
- Morning classes and activities inspire and motivate you to make healthy choices in life and throughout the day.
- Afternoon classes and activities encourage exploration on all levels – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
- Evening classes and activities help you integrate the teachings and tools you gathered throughout your day.
- Following this daily rhythm enables transformation so that you can achieve optimum health.
Whether you are a first-time or returning guest, we encourage you to find the right balance between scheduled activities (e.g., classes, meals, exercise) and free time (optional treatments, journaling, relaxation, and rest).
The following schedule represents a typical day Monday to Friday. On weekends, circle and mealtimes remain the same, but class time is reduced to offer you more free time for relaxation or optional services.
