Description of Course
Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medicinal practice of balance and health, has long used masterful cleanses at the junctions of the seasons to facilitate an equilibrium in the body and mind and to establish and maintain well being.
Cleansing has a multitude of benefits including the elimination of accumulated toxins, improved digestion, burning unwanted fat, strengthening immunity, increased energy and reduced cravings. Ayurvedic cleanses are used to support and nourish and are not meant to shock the internal systems as other cleanse may do. By eating THREE FULL MEALS A DAY of vegan, wholesome foods and grounding, cooked meals including the delicious Kitchari, you are returned to a balanced, detoxified and purified state.
Join us, Monday November 5th from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm for an in depth class on Ayurvedic cleansing and detoxification where we will cover key concepts for facilitating a successful detox including reasons to cleanse, ideal time to cleanse and specifics on how to undertake a 10 day Ayurvedic home cleanse. Class will also include instructional meditations and breath exercises (pranayama) to help support your balanced state. Collectively we will begin the cleanse the next day on Tuesday November, 6th and finish ten days later on November 16th.
To dive deeper into the cleanse an optional second course has been added: Vak Tapas- Yogic Disciplines for Purification of Speech on Monday November 12, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm. As serious students of yoga we may feel drawn to bring other spiritual disciplines into our lives besides the practice of asana (yoga posture). Seasonal cleanses are one such practice. Another discipline that is immensely beneficial for cultivating mindfulness is the practice of Vak Tapas or disciplined speech. This special class will explore the four characteristics of Vak Tapas as explained in the Upanishads, as well as other ways we can enlighten the faculty of speech. When we use our organ of speech for right speech, we create harmony and increase sattva in the world. The lecture portion of this class will be followed by a guided Self-Inquiry meditation aimed to facilitate the cleansing of unhealthy emotions to further the benefits of the seasonal cleanse.
Throughout the 10 day period, we will be offering support via a private Facebook page set up for all cleanse participants as a place to share successes and challenges.
We look forward to sharing with you this wonderful honoring of the season of change and move together in balance and health!
