This Month in the Virtual Practice Space:

Ayurvedic Spring Kitchari Cleanse with Traci Webb of the Northwest Institute of Ayurveda

Join us this Spring for a gentle detox and add a new yogic tool to your toolbox: Traci Webb shares the beautiful art of Kitchari.

Om Shala Yoga and the Northwest Institute of Ayurveda have partnered to bring you a digital learning experience on how to use a traditional Ayurvedic mono-diet to detox during the change of seasons this Spring.  

Have you had a hard time with traditional juice fasts or other strict detox programs? Many people do, because our modern lifestyle rarely allows for the rest that is really critical to supporting a true fast. We think you'll find the Kitchari cleanse to be a really nourishing, positive cleanse experience that will lead to better sleep, settled digestion, more energy and a little more grounding going into the busy spring season.

Kitchari is a classic Indian dish that combines easy to digest soaked white basmati rice and green mung dahl or mung beans. It is a delicious, comfort food and can be used as a cleanse program when we abstain from eating anything other than the Kitchari.  The easily digested components of the dish and supporting herbs allow the intestinal lining to truly rest and restore itself.  It is quite simply a way to get out of the way of your body's wisdom, so that the natural detox systems of the body can work at their best. 

Skip the juice fast headache this spring and nourish yourself into balance.  The program can be used for a 3, 5 or 7 day Detox.  

Access until April 20th is $35

This program is available in the Virtual Practice Space March 20th-April 20th.  The cleanse may be started and ended at any time once you have your log in. This is so that everyone may mindfully choose the best time for them to begin. Its a great idea to pair with a friend and cook the first round of Kitchari together. Once you enroll, you'll receive instructions by email on how to log in to the course via our website.  Enrollees will also receive an invitation to join our closed Facebook group where we can swap stories, support each other and go through the process with friends, and where Traci will be holding Facebook live Q&A sessions each Thursday 12:30-1pm!  Make sure you respond to your log in email giving us your facebook name and permission to add you.
