Ayurvedic Seasonal Cleanse

Ayurveda recommends a regular seasonal cleansing (detox) routine to help remove toxins (ama) which accumulate in the body tissues and organs.

As we transition from one season to the next, it is the ideal time to press the reset button – or cleanse the body (and mind) of toxins we accumulate throughout the past season. As we move into Autumn, it’s time to prepare ourselves for the colder months ahead and realign ourselves with the new season.

As part of the Lotus Health and Fitness series of workshops, we will be following a seasonal cleanse 4 times throughout the year.

Signs you may benefit from a cleanse

  • You may feel bloated and heavy.
  • You have gained weight and feel uncomfortable with this weight gain.
  • You feel tired, find it difficult to concentrate or have a fuzzy head.
  • You find it difficult to wake up in the morning and spend half the day feeling half asleep.
  • You suffer from allergies: skin rashes or nasal irritation.
  • You are suffering from indigestion: acid reflux or slow digestions
  • You suffer from constipation, excess gas, abdominal pain, sticky, smelly stools.
  • You experience cravings for specific foods – generally unwholesome foods.
  • You suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. This is especially prevalent this time of year.

Whats included:
Preparation phase – guidelines on how to prepare your body and mind (and your kitchen cupboard) for the week- long cleanse.

Workshop on Friday 25th January at 7pm, which will guide you through the week-long cleanse. Clear guidelines on diet, recipes and herbal supplements to nourish and detoxify the body. Individual diet following the cleanse. Ayurvedic self massage techniques.

When following an Ayurvedic diet, your kitchen is your medicine cabinet. You will find out more about the qualities of everyday herbs, spices and foods to detoxify, rejuvenate and maintain balance in the body.

There will be a minimal, additional cost for herbal preparations.

The Yoga classes at the studio throughout the cleanse phase will focus on the organs and systems of the body, which help with the removal of toxins.
