Why + How to Cleanse with Ayurveda this Fall

Ayurveda recommends a cleanse to accompany a change in season, to clear + open physiological and psychological channels that become congested as a result of improper diet, chronic stress, and exposure to chemical pollutants in environments within which we operate. The Fall is an especially important time to alleviate the body of stored heat which has accumulated throughout the summer, which contributes to systemic dryness, setting the stage for Fall coughs and colds that lead to weakened immune systems during the Winter months. The result of an Ayurvedic Cleanse is a restored and rejuvenated digestive and immune system, and purified mind to move gracefully into the colder months of the year with strength and clarity.

During this afternoon workshop, you will learn not only why it is important to support the internal organs and the sense organs with a cleanse, but how to do it yourself at home with a step-by-step guide including information on practical daily routines, supportive herbs and teas, as well as a discussion of the mono-diet of kitchari - a blend of split moong beans, basmati rice and digestive spices that is satisfying to the palate and detoxifying for your entire organism.

ĀYURVEDIC SPRING CLEANSE RETREAT AT MENLA
May
23
to May 27

ĀYURVEDIC SPRING CLEANSE RETREAT AT MENLA

Āyurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning “life knowledge.” It is the name of the world's oldest holistic health system, which offers unique insight into creating balance among all facets of wellness — physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual — using tools such as diet, plant remedies, daily schedule and lifestyle practices, movement and yoga, meditation, breath work, color, and aromatherapy to establish harmony between body, mind, and the natural world.

Balance in mind and body within the context of nature is divine natural order, according to Āyurveda. Action taken to cultivate cooperation between mind and body and the environment yields the symptoms of health that lay the foundation for true happiness and longevity. As preventative wellcare, Āyurveda is behavioral medicine at its finest, making it a science of personal responsibility — one which trains you first intellectually, then intuitively, to make intelligent decisions that invite health and harmony into your experience.

Āyurveda recommends a cleanse to accompany a change in season, to clear and open physiological and psychological channels in the body and mind. Spring is an especially important time of the year, when nature re-awakes from the long, heavy winter and provides us with all the dietary and herbal tools we need to rid our bodies of excess fats and heavy proteins which keep environmental and emotional toxins bound in bodily tissues.

A Spring cleanse helps the body to identify stored fat tissue as useable energy, retraining and firing up digestive capacity within the GI tract, bodily tissues, and the mind. Accumulated and stored toxins are brought to the surface of tissues and gently escorted out through elimination channels. The results of the Spring cleanse are empowered digestive and immune systems as well as a purified mind to transition gracefully and energetically from the heavy, dulled winter into the light, auspicious Springtime.

The sophistication of the software and hardware of the human being is an absolutely magnificent phenomenon. And yet, without realizing it, we are getting in the way of its natural and spontaneous self-healing capability by inundating our systems with excessive consumption and exposure to toxicity. We are interrupting restoration and repair of our physical vehicles with careless lifestyles.

The goal of this retreat is to provide the tools and space for a gentle yet thorough cleansing of the body and mind, as well as a foundation for understanding how your physiology and psychology work together, why it is important to detoxify the internal organs and the sense organs, and how to use the things you are engaging with each day, knowingly and unknowingly, through environment, society, lifestyle, and diet, as tools to cultivate the physical state and state of mind of your own choosing.This retreat will include:

  • An Āyurvedic mono-diet of kitchari and tisanes (herbal teas)

  • Appropriate herbs to support detoxification (triphala)

  • A ‘dinacharaya’ tool-kit of copper tongue scraper, nasal oil, mouth gargle, neti pot and salts, essential oils, body massage oil, and a candle to use during the retreat and at home following the retreat

Spring is an especially important time of the year, when nature re-awakes from the long, heavy winter and provides us with all the dietary and herbal tools we need to rid our bodies of excess fats and heavy proteins which keep environmental and emotional toxins bound in bodily tissues. A Spring cleanse helps the body to identify stored fat tissue as useable energy, retraining and firing up digestive capacity within the GI tract, bodily tissues, and the mind. Accumulated and stored toxins are brought to the surface of tissues and gently escorted out through elimination channels.

The key to detoxifying is gentleness. The body does not like being thrown off balance too much or for too long, which is why a whole foods approach like the Āyurvedic kitchari mono-diet is so impactful; this meal is a complete protein that helps your body maintain a stable blood sugar, mineral balance, and, most importantly, adrenal function. If your body is stressed, it will not detoxify, it will not release its hold on all it has accumulated. The body is very intelligent; it is doing everything it can to stay alive! It is attached to that which it clutches so firmly for a reason. You must give it the optimal conditions to release. All forms of detoxification require care, patience, and rest. The process of loosening toxicant build up in fatty tissues must be partnered with an emphasis on efficient elimination of these chemicals from the blood stream and the body.

Āyurveda's kitchari cleanse provides everything you need for an effective reset of your entire organism's digestive capacity ! The results of the Spring cleanse are empowered digestive and immune systems as well as a purified mind to transition gracefully and energetically from the heavy, dulled winter into the light, auspicious Springtime.

Ayurveda recommends a cleanse to accompany a change in season, to clear + open physiological and psychological channels that become congested as a result of improper diet, chronic stress, and exposure to chemical pollutants in environments within which we operate.

to Mar 27

Spring Kitchari Cleanse at Hari NYC

For many, the journey to Ayurveda arrives from the bountiful relationship with yoga, when we realize the practices of asana, pranayam, and meditation are shared components of the Ayurvedic life sciences. The Cleansing/Panchakarma traditions of India are ancient, yet powerful, and enable deep healing. Through Panchakarma, we are able to address many of the acute and equivocal factors of dis-ease at the roots of the matter.

The Treehouse and I are teaming up to offer kundalini yogis a unique opportunity to learn about Yoga's sister science, Ayurveda, and experience a comprehensive Ayurvedic Spring cleanse (also known as Panchakarma) which includes diet, herbal, and movement purification practices aimed at helping the body identify stored winter fat tissue as useable energy, resetting the metabolic function and digestive capacity of all the tissue layers of the body. 

Accumulated and stored toxins are brought to the surface of tissues and gently escorted out through elimination channels. The result of the Spring Panchakarma are empowered digestive and immune systems as well as a purified mind to transition gracefully and energetically from the heavy, dulled winter into the light, auspicious Springtime.

The cleanse will be offered in 3-, 5-, and 7- day packages, and will include a daily 3-meal supply of Ayurvedic kitchari*, daily herbal tisanes*, a jar of Noël’s home made ghee*, a pouch of triphala*. A complete toolkit containing Ayurvedic cleansing tools and oils (herbalized body massage oil, herbalized oil-pulling oil, herbalized nasya oil, copper tongue scraper, copper neti pot, thymed-neti salt) may also be purchased separately from Noël for $130.

Why + How to Spring Cleanse Workshop

In Ayurveda, an ancient medical science from India, toxins that accumulate in the body are called ama. These toxins result from the accumulation of impurities in our bodies as a result of improper diet, chronic stress, and exposure to chemical pollutants in the products we engage with and environments within which we operate. Symptoms of ama accumulation are lethargy, low energy, generalized aches and pains, lack of mental clarity, heaviness in the body, digestive problems (such as constipation, gas, bloating, acidity, heartburn…), weakened immune system, frequent colds and sinus infections, coated tongue, body odor, etc.

Ayurveda recommends a cleanse to accompany a change in season, to clear + open physiological and psychological channels and to rid the body of this ama accumulation. Spring is an especially important time of the year when nature re-awakes from the long, heavy winter and provides us with all the food- and herb-tools we need to rid the body of excess fats and heavy proteins which keep toxins bound in bodily tissues! A Spring cleanse helps the body to identify stored fat tissue as useable energy, retraining and firing up digestive capacity within the GI tract, bodily tissues, and the mind.

During this hour long class, I will introduce participants to the traditional Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse, called Panchakarma, daily routines, herbs, as well as a kitchari recipe that are satisfying to the palate and detoxifying for your entire organism. You will learn not only why it is important to detoxify the internal organs and the sense organs, but how to do it yourself with a step-by-step practical guide. This is a great opportunity to learn more about joining in on The Treehouse’s first group kitchari cleanse beginning March 21.

The cleanse begins with a 2 hour introduction orientation on Sunday, in which participants will be introduced to Ayurvedic theory, receive a kit of tools to use throughout the cleanse, and have the opportunity to sign up for a 30 minute private consultation (included) with Noël. In the week following, there will be a 5­day detox beginning each morning with a class at Modo (incorporating pranayma and meditation), after which all participants will receive a juice and a daily supply of cleansing yet nourishing Ayurvedic kitchari. The result of the Panchakarma cleanse is a restored and rejuvenated digestive and immune system, and a purified mind to move gracefully into the colder months with strength and clarity.
