Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse

Why seasonal cleanse?

For over five years, we have been leading guided seasonal cleanses. Join Mary and Katelynn for a modern approach to Ayurvedic detoxification.Ayurveda recommends we detoxify our bodies at the juncture of two seasons in order to remove built up ama, or toxic sludge, from the previous season.  Doing so keeps our bodies and minds ready for the upcoming seasonal elements.  The best time for a fall seasonal cleanse is October and November. After the heat of the summer has passed and before the deep cold of the winter sets in. We’re offering this program now through December.  You can start your week long cleanse whenever is convenient for you.  For more reading about the science of seasonal cleansing, check out this informational video.

 

What is included in your seasonal Ayurvedic cleanse?

We’ve got options for every budget and are ready to guide you in any way you desire.  It is a one week program.  We provide all the ingredients – organic herbs, medicated oils, food, organic herbal teas instructions, and schedule. You do the food and meal preparation in the comfort of your home. Coaching calls, consultations, and Ayurvedic treatments are available, depending on the program you choose.  See options below. While it is best to rest and relax as much as possible during your week of detoxification, it is possible to work while doing the program.

Ayurvedic Cleanse Kit Only

Your Ayurvedic cleanse kit includes all the supplies you need for a do it yourself week of detoxification. We provide instructions and scheduling for your week of rejuvenation and renewal.  This is a great kickstart to your healing process. $90 purchase online here.

This is our favorite option. You’ll start your week off with an Ayurvedic consultation and we’ll customize your program together.  You’ll do the meal and herbal preparation, but we’ll be by your side every step of the way via text messages and daily coaching calls.  This package includes the cleanse kit plus a detoxifying full body Ayurvedic spa treatment. $345 purchase online here.

Beginning with a consultation with one of our certified Ayurvedic practitioners, together we’ll decide which treatments, herbs, and meal plan will work to meet your detoxification goals.

Please email Katelynn & Mary at halfmoonayurveda@gmail.com after your purchase so we can arrange for pickup of your kit and scheduling of your treatment and consults. We look forward to serving you this season!  We are also standing by to answer any questions you may have about the process.

Retreat vs. Vacation

Screen Shot 2018-07-10 at 11.45.13 AMDid you ever feel like you need a vacation after your vacation?

I went on my first yoga retreat as a “research trip.”  I love to travel. I love yoga. How can I combine the two…oh, right, a yoga retreat!  One week in Tulum Mexico making connections with people I now consider dear friends, eating delicious fresh prepared meals in an idyllic beach front setting, and I was convinced that not only is this the best way to vacation, but I also wanted to share it with my own yoga community.  And our first Hot Yoga Ayurvedic retreat was born.  We’ve since journeyed Tulum, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Mount Hood Oregon and now we’re heading to Outer Banks, North Carolina.

argentina_7Think about the activities that make up the usual vacation.  Excessive exposure to sun, traveling in cars or planes, over eating, drinking, and planning. No wonder you didn’t relax on vacation…you didn’t even have time!ayurveda_food

Now think about a retreat.  Your meals are all healthy, tasty, Ayurvedically balanced, and prepared for you at regular mealtimes. There are yoga, Ayurvedic workshops, meditation, and pranayama classes all day long, which you may or may not attend.  The environment is quiet, peaceful, and relaxing with no shortage of salty fresh air and sea.  There will be on site discounted massage therapists and body workers at your service offering high quality therapies.  The company is like minded…we are all here to relax, do yoga and be well.

Consider taking a retreat instead of a vacation.  You’ll return to your daily life truly energized, rejuvenated, and ready to start from scratch all over again. This time, let us do the planning for your vacation.  Join us for an all inclusive Hot Yoga Ayurvedic retreat in beautiful Outer Banks, North Carolina.  September 8th – 15th. Check out hotyogaphilly.com/reetreats or email 2018hotyogaretreats@gmail.com for more information.
