Begin the New Year with an Ayurvedic cleanse, prioritizing your health, self-care, and your mental and spiritual well-being. You’ll be guided by Jodi Boone, Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner, and cleanse in a supportive group environment. Ayurveda is considered the “sister-science” of yoga and focuses on nourishing oneself through food, self-care practices, and daily rhythms. An Ayurvedic cleanse is gentle, yet deeply profound. The benefits of an Ayurvedic cleanse include resetting your digestive system, eliminating toxins that can cause a feeling of physical heaviness or energetic stagnation, deeper sleep, renewed energy, and mental clarity. Throughout the cleanse, you will eat a plant-based, whole foods diet, enjoying three meals per day, so you will feel satiated and satisfied. During the cleanse we will meet over three Sundays, in person, at the Wedgwood studio. Our meetings will include lecture and sharing, as well as shorter meditation and breath work practices. The focus of each meeting is described below:
Sun Jan 16 – Meeting 1:
During this meeting you’ll have the opportunity to meet the others in the group, set intentions, and discuss the foundations of Ayurvedic philosophy. After, we will go over the details of the cleanse, including the recipe booklet and cleanse schedule. This will give you time to go shopping and prepare for the cleanse, which begins on January 20.
Sun Jan 23 – Meeting 2:
We will gather together to talk about how the cleanse is going for you, sharing with each other, and asking questions. We will talk specifically about Ayurveda’s tridoshic theory and using an Ayurvedic constitutional questionnaire, you will determine your Ayurvedic constitution, or if you already know it, you can focus on any imbalances you are currently experiencing.
Sun Jan 30 – Meeting 3:
During our final meeting, we will celebrate the end of the cleanse, discuss how to transition from the cleanse, explore Ayurveda’s recommendations for daily and seasonal self-care practices, and how to integrate simple Ayurvedic practices into a full and busy life.
Food is at the heart of an Ayurvedic cleanse. It’s important to know that this cleanse does require that you have time and space to prepare home-cooked meals daily. The recipes are simple, and we tend to make one meal that is consumed for both lunch and dinner, which can save time. You will need approximately one-hour each day for food preparation.
