3 Day Spring Rejuvenation: Ayurvedic whole-food cleanse with yoga
March 24th-26th at The Gentle Place Massage & Yoga
Like a crocus buried in heavy cool mud, the approach of warm spring days and extended daylight trigger nature to emerge and begin its transformation towards blossoming. Ayurvedic philosophy, the sister science of yoga, recognizes Spring as the time for the body to emerge ftom the heaviness of the season and detoxify through wholesome food and warming exercise to help create more balance and wellness in our body and mind. Join Ayurvedic counselor, Vanessa Fede and Yoga instructor, Lauren Turner for a 3-Day course designed to help you transition from winter to spring and feel a cleansing in body, mind and spirit.
A specially curated 3-Day Meal plan has been created for this 3-Day Rejuvenation. Vanessa and Lauren have thoughtfully designed a program guide with simple recipes that allows for individualization, whether you'd like to follow a traditional Ayurvedic cleanse with kitchari, or prefer meal options better suited for a modern American palate.
At the two-hour opening session, participants will join in for a warming all-level 60 minute Vinyasa Flow followed by a introduction to Ayurveda by Vanessa. You'll learn some basic principles of Ayurvedic wellness, including why there is a focus on wholesome, balanced meals that encourage natural restoration within the body, instead of other "detoxes" that leave you hungry and depleted.
In addition to two other in-studio yoga classes, participants will be given access to exclusive video content to support their Spring Rejuvenation, including a 10-Minute At-Home Flow, instructional videos and other daily tips and inspiration to keep you motivated.
By the end of the final day of the cleanse, participants should feel rejuvenated and energized as they head into the season of Spring.
