About this Workshop:
In this information rich workshop and cleanse weekend, Anne will guide you into a deeper understanding of the idea that how you choose to nourish your body can have profound impacts not only on your physical well-being, but mentally and spiritually too. This cleanse program will help you to move forward in your spiritual journey as you learn which foods keep you stuck, and how to eat in a way that helps to open your mind and heart.

Bringing together ancient yogic science and modern wisdom, this workshop includes the study of Ayurveda, the doshas(energies of the body), the ancient text of the Bhagavad Gita and it's discussion of the gunas (virtues or personality traits) and some modern nutrition science.

For three days you will choose to follow a restricted cleanse program (we will share options with you that include a juice fast or an ayurveydic cleanse plan) while being supported mentally, physically and spiritually on this journey.

VERY IMPORTANT! Continue to take necessary medications through out this process. Also, please, consult a doctor before embarking on this cleanse if you have a condition that is sensitive to minor body chemistry fluctuations.

I have made a big change in my lifestyle sense starting your class and would like to share some of my happiness with you. One of the first things you suggested was to do a Ayurvedic Cleanse and find your levels of your Doshas. With the suggestion of the cleanse I focused on my diet and what I was feeding my body and mind. I started the class at 197 pounds, borderline high blood pressure, and my doctor was on the fence about my cholesterol levels and possibly starting medications to bring it down below the 200 mark. Just simple movements would cause heavy breathing. I was not so happy with myself.

I decided to make some changes by following your guildlines that you introduced to me. I took the handout on Alkaline vs Acidic foods to the grocery store and made a new shopping list for my body. Finding food to feed my doshas and stay away from the acidic food was a challenge at first but important changes I needed to do for myself. It all began with your words to “try it.”

For the next three months the changes in my health have been for the better. I recently had a physical exam from my doctor. I’ve dropped over 25 pounds, weighing in this morning at 172. My blood pressure is slightly below normal, I can breath again! My cholesterol is down to 168. All of the changes have happened from a new diet and a steady dose of practicing yoga. Thank you, Anne! - Billy
