Waking up feeling stiff, lethargic, and foggy!


It’s time for an Ayurvedic Cleanse!


Sunday October 30th, 2:00 pm -4:00 pm at East Meets West Yoga studio, Vienna


A periodic cleansing regimen is more vital today than ever before. Since our bodies are constantly processing environmental toxins, processed foods and psychological stress.

Fall is a perfect time to consider doing a gentle cleanse because our bodies are ripe with a sense of transition. An Ayurvedic cleanse helps to restore a sense of calm to the mind and the nervous system. It improves digestion, promotes regular bowel movements and supports sound sleep. It deeply nourishes the tissues, rejuvenates your body and promotes optimal health!
In this session, you will learn about:

  • Simple, extremely gentle and easy to follow three - five day cleanse
  • Cleansing diet that is safe for most body constitutions and imbalances
  • Effective ways to work with the body’s natural shifts that occur at the juncture of seasons
