Do you ever feel that your mind and heart are telling you things but you cannot slow down enough to listen? The body gives us signals. This earth gives us signals. Every day there is information in front of us that urges us to make some changes. And yet, the grind, the hustle, the bustle -- it can be so hard to slow down. 

Do you experience the signs of undigested buildup in body and mind and need a reset? Have you felt that your consumption levels have not matched your body and mind's true needs? 

Fatigue, bloating, foul smell, indigestion, or brain fog and can't put your finger on the cause? 

Do you tend to get sick at the season's turn or overdo the vices during summer? 

It might be time for a seasonal cleanse. 

Ayurvedic cleanses are deeper and yet more supportive than many of the fad cleanses out on the market and bookshelves today. You will learn self massage and oily practices, mono-diet recipes, breathing and meditation, and take supportive ghees and herbs as you prepare to lighten the load in your digestive tract. Beyond that, this cleanse contains options -- mild, medium, and intense, for those who just need moral support to make simple changes in life rather than drastic measures. No effort is wasted.

If you are ready to enter a new phase or season with more vitality and peace, connecting your way of life to natural cylcles, join us for a new experience. 

We will meet three times to set our intentions individually and as a group, learn about the process and purpose of seasonal cleanse, and for support along the way. *The first two meetings are mandatory. The last meeting is optional, though highly recommended. 

Join us March 15 - 29th. Meetings on each Friday evening 7, 14, and 21st at 6:30 pm.

                  Pranayama:

                  There are many forms of pranayama and kinds of lessons. I am uploading some practices you might try during the time. You are also welcome to join the Tuesday zoom sessions 4:30 pm EDT. Let me know if you need the link.

                  Meditation: Any contemplative practice or meditation for short periods every day is recommended during a cleanse. Do what feels sustainable and what you know.
