Why Cleanse?


Fasting and cleansing to detox and purify the  body and mind are not new concepts. They were first embraced thousands of years ago as a pathway to connect with the divine and achieve higher levels of awareness and clarity. It’s more relevant than ever today.

I created a 7-Day  Retreat which includes juice fasting, colon cleansing and gourmet living raw food, to awaken the spirit as much as the body and mind. It’s a retreat that’s designed to pull you out of your daily routine, so that you can examine what you’re consuming – and what’s consuming you – whether it’s the food you eat, the lifestyle you choose or the environment you’re living in. It will give you a quick tune-up as well as an opportunity to re-calibrate and realign with your internal guidance system.

So much of the food we choose to eat fogs our life force and weighs down the body in dis-ease. The effects are making headlines every day. Rates of heart disease, diabetes and cancer are on the rise, prescriptions for medications to treat depression and anxiety are at record levels, increasing numbers of adults are overweight, the rate of autoimmune disease is growing, chronic fatigue syndrome is a new epidemic – and  the list goes on and on.

Fortunately, we can set ourselves free from low energy, stress, illness, obesity, addiction, depression and a host of other physical, emotional or spiritual ailments we might be facing. The path back to wellness is simple – we just need to take a step out of our usual routine to reassess and understand how food and lifestyle choices are shaping our health.

For most of my adult life, I have been exploring the healing power of food, juice fasting and healing. When I first discovered yoga at 13, I adopted a different way of eating from my family and started weekly fasting. Along the way I have cleansed, studied, cooked, sweat, prayed and meditated with holistic healers. There is no “one answer” to naturally healing the body and there isn’t one right way. Staying in balance and being healthy is an evolution, and we can each start where we are.
Doing a cleanse is a great first step.

Participating in a 7-Day Detox Retreat, which includes 4 days juice fasting and 3 days gourmet raw living foods with a small group of friendly like-minded people is a great first step. Making the most of your cleanse by doing detox yoga, taking infrared saunas, relaxing in the spa, walking by the lake and focusing on your being will have a positive impact on how you feel – And everything in life is better when your body feels good.

We have the answer to staying clear, light and awake. So my question to you is:
How can we not take time out to do a cleanse?

The revolution begins within.

If you’ve ever wanted to do a juice fast but don’t ever find the right time to start, or are unsure about exactly what to do then attending a 1-Day Detox Yoga & Juice Fasting Workshop is for you.

Efficient Cleansing

Recently I met someone who told me they’d just completed a 10 Day Juice Fast without doing any kind of colonic cleansing. I would never recommend doing this.  Juicing for longer than 1 or 2 days, it is definitely helpful for your cleanse to do colonics, so you have much less risk of auto re-toxing. Re-toxing happens when your liver can’t keep up with cleaning up the toxins being dumped into your blood from the organs. The colon is a primary place for this re-absorbtion to happen. Using coffee enemas, will give you great relief from any detox symptoms like headaches, muscle weakness, nausea ect. Approx 10 mins after completing the enema, your detox symptoms will have greatly reduced if not gone altogether.

This workshop is a great opportunity to learn how to safely and effectively use juice fasting for deeper levels of organ and  cellular cleansing. Once you know how, you can confidently juice fast at home whether it’s for 1 Day or 14.

Empower Yourself

This is a very empowering way to take charge of your health and healing. It gives you a very effective means to heal yourself. Our bodies are designed to self-heal, our job is to provide the right environment for this to happen. Fasting has been proven over and over to aid the body’s natural healing mechanism. So much of our energy goes into digestion, which, if you relieve your body from this energy taxing activity, it will start on the overdue business of cleaning up toxins from the organs, tissue and cells. This is really a phenomenal process when you think about it. I know someone who regularly detoxed and after 4 years his body started releasing old asthma medication. He had been a serious asthmatic earlier in his life. He knew this old medication was leaving his body because he could taste it.

Combining juice fasting with specific yoga practices for detoxing really turbo charges your cleanse. Then, anytime you feel you need a bit of a tune-up, you have a tried and true practice that will save you time and money, as you can maximize your cleanse. These practices will  take your cleanse to a much deeper level in less than half the time, than if you were juice fasting alone.

I’m very excited about sharing this day with you and helping you achieve the most effective and enjoyable cleanse possible.
