Spring Cleanse

Have 3 days? Want better health?

Join Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC and Treetop Yoga on our 3-day spring reset to detoxing your mind and body to let your soul shine!

Spring is a perfect time to detox and reset of our digestive fires (Agni) to help remove built up toxins (Ama) from the heavy winter diet.

Our 3-day cleanse will help to reset your digestive fires to help flush out toxins and restore the gut-brain connection to improve your over all health. You will see improvement on fatigue, mental fog, depression, anxiety, and bloating.

We are incorporating a spring sunrise yoga class, led by Erin McKay of Treetop Yoga in Gloucester, that recognizes Kapha’s earthy and watery nature. As the sister science of Ayurveda, a yoga practice can boost energy in the body. The practice will begin with breathwork (pranayama) that will energize our bodies and stimulate circulation. Our cool, damp Cape Ann spring days offer the opportunity to refresh our yoga practice through a dynamic flow. Through holding poses for several breaths we will build the heat from within and incorporate twisting to encourage detoxification.  The movements will be beneficial in reducing the heavy, wet Kapha qualities with increased circulation. The practice will end with a Kapha balancing guided meditation. No yoga experience necessary. All levels welcome.

Intro to Ayurveda

Let us introduce you to yourself!

Discover the true nature and how to align yourself to nature’s rhythm. Ayurveda is the oldest medical system dating back 5000 years!  It is commonly referred to as Yoga’s sister science.  Understanding and applying Ayurvedic principles empowers you to bring health, balance and harmony into your daily life.

This workshop will be fun, interactive and include lunch!  We explore through discussion and group activities.

Mercury Retrograde

Expect the unexpected…February 16 to March 9

Mercury retrograde occurs at two levels. At one level, there is not much you can do with the actions of others, except to be more conscious and prepare for delays and errors by double checking.

But at the personal level you can do a lot in order to avoid the consequences of Mercury Retrograde. Most of us encounter the consequences when we are not centered, aware or conscious of what is going on around us, and more often than not the culprit is that we are not acting from our heart and spirit.

Instead we are reacting from our needs, our hurts, from our buttons being pushed, or the way that we take care of others and not ourselves. In that way we act from our shadow, and that is what mercury retrograde is all about.

Mercury Retrograde occurs when it is moving backwards, into its shadow, and thus communication, scheduling, transportation and judgment becomes cloudy or error prone. As much as outer work is challenged by Mercury Retrograde, introspection and inner work is very supported. Take advantage of Mercury Retrograde by clearing your own tendencies to get caught up in your own shadows and those of others.

Lunch Challenge

Ayurveda Wellness Healing lunch challenge….

Ayurvedically speaking our lunch should be made fresh and be the biggest meal of the day.

Having a big lunch is important because the sun, pitta energy (element of fire, energy of transformation!), and our agni (digestive fire), are all in alignment. This means big, lots o’ fire to digest big, lots o’ food! Our digestive fire is the strongest it will be all day long and it’s looking for a big meal to work on. If we wait to have our biggest meal at dinner, there is no fire left in nature or in us, so the food sits like a big blob in our bellies until the next day. Yuck!

Put the salad down. Salads are popular because they don’t have to be heated, they stay pretty fresh all day, and they are easily carried around. Plus, veggies! Unfortunately, salads are not the best choice from an Ayurvedic perspective because they are cold, light, rough, and can be hard for many people to digest. They can be okay in summer time for some people but overall they don’t give enough staying power for anyone and by 3:00 we’ll be sniffing around for cookies or chocolate.

Choose warm, nourishing foods. If possible, lunch should be warm, full of vegetables, delicious spices and flavors, protein of choice and balanced by what your dosha needs.

Try really hard not to eat at your desk. Multi-tasking and eating do not mix because we confuse our minds. “Am I eating food? Or am I typing? Or am I talking?” says the mind. The focus needs to be on the food so we can taste it, chew it well, and begin the digestive process healthfully (digestion starts in the mouth!). At the very least, step away from your desk and go into a conference room. Play your favorite Pandora or Spotify station to create a nice ambiance.

Bonus points if you can take a leisurely 15-minute walk outside after lunch. It helps the digestive process and keeps our mind nourished. This is not a power walk, it’s a stroll.
