Lighten Up Yoga & Juice Cleanse w/ Syama & Dhyana

April 18th-22nd 2015 lighten up

“It was one of those times you want to yell from the rooftops “Where has this been all my life, doesn’t everyone know about this incredible joy?” Angela G.

“Bottom line, I went to Lighten Up to do Yoga exercise to improve my old body, and came away with a whole new life. I implore you to give it a chance, it will make your daily grind a whole new deal, more productive than ever.” Rodney L.

In our modern world of air conditioning, central heating, and around-the-clock lighting, the cycles of Mother Nature have become easier to ignore.

Spring is a natural cleansing season. Once it gets a little warmer, the human organism is wired to shed off extra winter pounds that kept us warm during the winter, flush out toxins that were accumulated from heavy cold weather foods, and to generally lighten up(!) preparing for warmer seasons. If you don’t recognize this natural pattern or try to resist it by loading up on heavy foods, it will lead to internal clogging – spring allergies, sluggishness, water retention, and a feeling of heaviness in the limbs and a mind.

Join Syama and Dhyana for 5 days of Spring Cleansing!

Ayurveda, Yoga’s sister science, suggests fasting at every change of season. This is a juice cleanse with optional fasting. We have recommended foods that will still allow your body to CLEANSE & your mind to feel at ease if just juice sounds a bit intimidating for 5 days.

These 5 days will be an experiential, physical, and thought provoking exploration of the Chakra system. We will explore our own psychology through the window of each Chakra, bringing our awareness to the aspects of our lives (and our selves!) that are no longer serving… as we become more awake to the possibility of living as an expression of our greatest potential.

Yogi Lifestyle w/ Jai & Bud

IMG_2801Date: TBA

Come explore Ayurveda, Marma Therapy, and the Yoga Sciences w/ Jai Marcotte & Bud Tansey. In the concrete jungle of external stimuli, quick fixes, and a place where everyone has an answer to your problems, it’s easy to forget who we are and what we really need in order to thrive in life. Often times we think its hidden in a exercise routine, or an external achievement, or maybe if we just had the right partner or a bigger bank balance life would be perfect. The reality is the guidance to every choice we will make on our unique journey in life is dwelling within us at all times. This guidance will be hidden from us as long as we continue to look outside ourselves. Imagine a life where you make every choice from the most empowered place, by being deeply connected to your internal guidance. The great teachers and teachings of India have revealed the simple methods by which we can successfully do this. Let’s do it!!!
