It’s that time of year again. Actually, it begins today! This is the spring cleanse I recommend for those of us living in the Northeast US. Charlotte Clews is geeky, fun, and accessible. You won’t be sorry who join us.
Update: it’s a good practice to get out the old and organize what one keeps:
For the past several years, I have been doing spring cleanses with Charlotte Clews. I highly recommend her approach, and plan to offer supportive yoga classes locally if there is interest.

NEW This Spring
Each participant will commit to one new daily habit for the 21 days. You will check-in every day to confirm your daily commitment (by email, on the forum, text or by passenger pigeon. . .) I’ll provide a list of suggested diet and lifestyle habits but you can also choose your own if there’s something that you’ve been wanting to commit to.Register by April 1 and save $25!

This cleanse is dedicated to helping you head into the Winter feeling nourished and resilient. The goal is to eat whole-food meals with little or no snacks in between so as to balance your blood sugar, rest your digestion and reset your taste buds. Resting and cleansing your digestive system will help you clear allergies, constipation and skin issues and will help strengthen your immune system so you are less prone to summer allergies and rashes.
This is not a depletion cleanse, we will not be juice fasting or focusing on weight loss.However you can expect to loose some weight simply by clearing out winter’s digestive and cellular waste.
A Spring cleanse is like a good chimney sweep. It makes for a good clear draft and lessens your chance of a chimney fire.
Since Fall 2010, to better support my yoga practice, I have been doing fall and spring cleanses with the same practitioner. This year, at the prompting of an adventurous yoga friend, I decided to work with a different practitioner. (The buddy system prevails.) To the extent that we are what we eat, I think of this like any other sādhanā, or “practice.” It’s something that has been worked into the seasonal observances of many traditional cultures. I’m happy to answer any questions you might have about my experience with this sort of practice.
21-Day Cleanse and Sugar Detox
October 10-31, 2013
Summer heat and acidity gets trapped in the body, making allergies, joint inflammation and tempers flare. It’s important to take time each fall to cool down and clear out your system with a high mineral, super alkalizing, whole foods diet. Sugar is one of the biggest sources of excess acidity in our diets. It can single handedly weaken every system in your body. From premature wrinkles to hypoglycemia and insomnia, from anxiety, loss of focus and mood instability to excess weight and joint pain, sugar is making you who you are, and it’s not for the better.
During this cleanse you’re going to kick the sugar habit for 21-days and feel how good it feels to feel good. (The dates for this cleanse are not coincidental – the Halloween candy-binge is a huge source of late fall and winter illnesses, and this year, you’re not even going to give them a chance!)
