Kundalini yoga detox retreat shivanter singhSunday, April 28 – Friday, May 3​

Workshop Description:

Spring is a time of rebirth, joy, and expansiveness. There is the potential to feel like you’re ready to actualize reflections and commitments made during your winter hibernation. And yet, there is also the potential to hit the ground running too hard, or not at all, and tip toward unhealthy habits or even sickness.

The key to successfully balancing this transition time, known in Ayurveda as the season of kapha, is to release the additional layers and emotions experienced during winter through cleansing foods, thoughts, actions, and attitudes that enable you to spring forward.

How do you do this? This Kundalini Yoga detox will show you.
Explore Kundalini Yoga and meditation, healthy cooking strategies, and yogic herbal therapy with others committed to choosing the life they want. The difference between this Kundalini Yoga detox and other detox programs is that it is not just an opportunity to improve your well-being; it is also an opportunity to create and share life in the way you have always wanted.

Altar –

We will be creating a sacred altar while we are cleansing. Please bring objects, images, sacred writings to set on the altar. We will also be incorporating found objects from nature to honor the work that we are doing on ourselves and the planet as we cleanse. Come prepared to allow yourself to go within, clearing out all that does not serve you anymore, ridding yourself of all the toxins that keep us from operating at our highest frequency, understanding that “God and me are one.”

This cleansing experience will give you the opportunity to release not only the physical toxins but also the emotional and psychological blockages that hold us back. Come prepared to share and release –we are creating a supportive and nurturing environment for the transformational working of healing ourselves.
