“Detox, Nurture, Root Down & Renew”

FALL CLEANSE, October 8 ~ 29, 2022

With a KICK-OFF ZOOM Saturday, October 8th @ 1 pm

When you register, take 20% off any of our yoga passes to help support your practice before, during, and after your cleanse!

Our Traditional Ayurvedic Cleanse gives clients an opportunity to clear stagnant energy, clean out the channels of our digestion and elimination by rooting out toxins in our bodies and processed foods in our diets, lose those stubborn pounds, create and learn how to sustain a healthier diet, lifestyle, and how to navigate our way back into balance after periods of stress or illness.

Fall is a special time to cleanse, as it is Vata time, represented by the cool winds and dry air of autumn and early winter.  It is an especially important time to ground ourselves, turn to warmer foods and soups, and prepare our bodies for winter by eating the bounty of root vegetables, moisturize our organs and skin, and protect ourselves against the cold months ahead with our diet and lifestyle.

IMG_1986Many people cleanse annually, although it is recommended in both Spring and Fall to help you maintain optimal health year round. The traditional Ayurveda cleanse is a 15-21-day cleanse with a mono diet of Kitchari (a thick soup made with rice, dahl, and yummy Indian spices) offered in the middle week. Along with ghee, fresh fruits, veggies, appropriate spices, and whole grains, the Ayurvedic cleanse is light but wholesome, and it supports body, mind, and spirit, making it sustainable and a healthy option for almost everyone. We include important information on Ayurvedic self care to help you optimize your experience, and your package includes sesame oil for self massage and oral care. Our cleanse is wholesome, grounding, clearing, and supportive to your wellbeing!

THE GROUP FORMAT: Participating in a group cleanse can offer you just the tools you need to re-organize, set healthy intentions, and enjoy the support you need from a group leader and fellow cleansers. In this way, our cleanse becomes a bit like a course on Ayurveda where you learn about seasonal cleansing, how to balance your diet and life, and how to better care for your body, mind, and soul both during the cleanse and for the rest of the year!

WHY, HOW OFTEN, & HOW TO: Many people cleanse annually, although it is recommended in both Fall and Spring to help you maintain optimal health year round. The traditional Ayurvedic cleanse is a 15-28 day commitment (we choose 21 days) with a mid-cleanse mono diet of Kitchari or dahl with yummy Indian spices. Along with ghee, sautéd veggies, appropriate spices, and whole grains, the Ayurvedic cleanse is grounding and wholesome without being heavy, and it supports body, mind, and spirit, making it a sustainable and a healthy option for almost everyone. The “Active” Kitchari phase of the cleanse is easy, soothing, and allows for creativity, depending on your personal needs. In the final phase we really root down into the wonders of FALL with seasonal veggies, and we learn about the importance of when to sauté our greens and veggies to make them easier to digest, as well as when it is good to enjoy raw fruits and veggies, based on the season, specific weather, and time of day.  Some of us will even add an intermittent fasting component to really clear out our systems and reboot our metabolism!

We include important information on Ayurvedic self care to help you optimize your experience, and teach about creating nourishing rituals such as self oil massage, oral care, and nasal lubrication. Our cleanse is wholesome and grounding, but also clearing, energizing, and supportive to your mental, physical, and spiritual well being. The ingredients are easy to purchase online or to find at the grocery store. Either way, Katie will tell you exactly what you need!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE via Banyan or at your local grocery:

  • Banyan Cleanse kit online or purchase / or make your own bundle: 3 lb basmati rice, 1.65 lb split moong dahl (or red lentils), 3.5 oz kitchari spices, 7.5 oz ghee,  Triphala (90 tablets), or Total Body Cleanse tablets;  1/2 lb CCF tea (plain or “detox digest), or I’ll teach you to make your own!
  • 16 oz sesame oil (or organic herbalized massage oil of your choice–see link below to view the many options on Banyan). You could opt for a 4 oz sesame, a 4 oz joint and muscle oil, and a 4 oz deep sleep oil just to have a variety to try!

WHAT WE RECOMMEND to Enhance Your Cleanse Experience:

  • Stainless steel tongue scraper (you can use a spoon in a pinch)
  • Sesame oil or Mint Swish for swishing the mouth
  • Nasya Oil to lubricate and clear the nostrils (you can use a drop of sesame oil on your finger to lubricate the passageways–I will teach you this–the special oil is just a lovely upgrade)

**We recommend using the Banyan Botanicals “Cleanse Bundle” for the middle “active” phase of your 3-week cleanse. If you would like to make your own ghee, simply opt out of the ghee in the bundle items, and Katie will teach you how to make your own! Banyan cleanse kits often sell out in the Fall, but are generally restocked quickly. Free shipping!

For those who would like to add on Ayurveda Self Care items, we recommend the organic 16 oz Sesame for everyone–it is a great price, and you can use it daily unless you have inflammatory skin issues. There is an Every Day massage oil as well as a joint and muscle oil (Mahanarayan), and a Sleep Easy oil that is great for those who will self oil before bedtime. Use the following links to learn more and order: Ayurveda Massage Oils

Adding an Oral Care routine to your regular brushing and flossing is also a wonderful way to take better care of your teeth, gums, and to detoxify the tissues of the mouth. My favorite is the Mint Oil Swish, and I also us my Banyan tongue scraper daily! You can read more about oral care here: Oral Self Care
