I'm so excited to be joined by Ayurvedic Health Educator, Marian Curran for this supportive cleanse at Now 'n Zen Wellness Centre in Stratford. Here's how the 5 days will break down:
Sunday, March 20th - 8am - 4pm:
We'll start with a morning yoga practice and meditation with Samantha. That will be followed by detoxifying tea and an introduction to the science of Ayurveda, a 5000-year old natural healing system from India with Marian.
Discover your dosha (Ayurvedic constitution) and learn about food, yoga and other lifestyle choices most suited for you.
We'll break for a mindful lunch, which will consist of an Ayurvedic meal suitable for all doshas. This meal is called kitchari and features beans, rice and specific spices for toning the digestive system.
In the afternoon, you will be supplied with Ayurvedic cleansing tools including a neti pot, tongue scrapper, massage oil and eye wash and shown how to use them. You are now ready for the next 4 days of the cleanse.
Monday, March 21st - Thursday, March 24th - 6am - 8am:
We'll start every morning of the cleanse with a detoxifying yoga class followed by breakfast eaten mindfully together. You will leave with your kitchari for the day, the meal consumed on the cleanse. Taking part in a cleanse has never been easier! And yes, we eat FOOD on this cleanse!
Included in the Cleanse:
- Lunch Sunday and all meals for the 4 day cleanse (Monday - Thursday)
- Detoxifying tea for the duration of the cleanse
- The Ayurvedic cleansing tools (neti pot, tongue scrapper & massage oil)
