What is this new Spring Cleanse?

Ayurvedic cleansing is unique in the world of detoxification because of its balanced, gentle, and nourishing approach. The dietary and lifestyle practices reflect the “middle path” of healing, where rejuvenation and purification are included in each step. This reflects an understanding that real transformation takes place gradually and subtly, in a way that our bodies, minds, and hearts can truly assimilate.

Ayurveda is not the end all, and today with modern nutrition and supplements we can carefully and consciously augment and enhance this ancient Indian science to the modern lifestyle and dietary needs.

By temporarily adjusting how we eat, work, exercise, and sleep, we shake up our “cornerstone habits.” These are the day-to-day, often unconscious, habits that form the core pillars of our lives. Changing them invites us look closely at our underlying beliefs, and discover what truly makes us healthy and happy. The process is a type of meditation on how our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs all express themselves in our moment to moment behaviors, choices, and reactions.

This balancing cleanse is about creating the space in your life for 10 days of very intentional living, and seeing what happens. It is an adventure of self-exploration and we are here to support you with a jovial and understanding community, delicious recipes, and lifestyle practices that invite deeper insights.
