The Cleanse for Life / a practice of eating and living well (sold out)

Are you experiencing persistent health issues that are stopping you from living your best life? - Do you want to feel a renewed lease of life? - Is your body saturated with toxins?

When toxins are left unattended they begin to weaken the digestive fire. This fire and internal heat is seen as one of the most important life forces in Yoga and Ayurveda. If toxins are left to build beyond initial symptoms, they become the root cause of disease. 

WHY and HOW do we cleanse?

Yoga and Ayurveda consider the mind, body and soul as one system that is directly affected by what we eat and how we live. By practicing kryias or cleansing techniques, breath and energy expansion, massage, food, exercise, mantra, meditation, mindset and deep relaxation, we can draw toxins and excess energetic imbalances from tissues and cells into the digestive tract to be eliminated. 

  • At the heard of the cleanse is a nourishing wholesome four stage food plan; beginning with three days preparation, three days of active cleansing, one day of reintroduction with a plan to continue reintroduction for a further 2 days from home. The fourth stage of rejuvenation is fully supported to continue at home with a complete food plan for a further month.

  • The twice daily Yoga classes balance between a place of flow and rest, to build strength and boost vitality,

  • Daily cleanse rituals that remove the fog and tiredness, leaving you feeling brighter.

  • Focusing on breath work we gently let go of blocks, improve digestion and strengthen the immune system.

  • With a one-on-one consultation and diagnosis of your body type according to Ayurveda, we recommend types of oils, spices, vegetables, fruits and grains which help to balance you.

  • A full-body Ayurvedic massage treatment is available to you to eliminate toxins; heal muscle aches and soothe tension.

  • The Ayurveda cooking workshop provides fresh ideas on how cooking for your type changes your ability to digest and absorb nutrients acting as a natural healing system, that provides ideal nutritional support. Keeping you well in mind and body.

  • The group coaching element is a powerful and fun way to ask meaningful questions in life that enable you to let go and explore a new direction with a sense of knowing, from which you can make good decisions.

The Cleanse for Life.jpg

Tamsin teaches traditional Sivananda Yoga; a series of postures with variations that are specifically designed to work on all physical and psychic centres of the body, provide complete flexion of the spine and balance the endocrine, nervous and parasympathetic systems – And Yin Yoga, that works to restore fascia (connective tissue) through holding postures for longer and has a deeply meditative affect to calm the mind. 

The practice of yoga opens, clarifies, removes energy blocks and helps one to connect to the essence of their true nature – happiness. With long term commitment to the practice you can appreciate the ability to control the mind and transform ones life beyond the mat, beyond reactive emotions to a more gentle, peaceful approach to all that you do, with positive intentions that help guide you.

"I loved every part of the experience.  Some of the elements were new to me which would normally make me feel uncomfortable. Instead I felt my confidence grew throughout the 5 days. I felt this was mainly due to you creating this wonderful, trusting atmosphere.  I especially loved the type of yoga you teach. It really does suit me more that any I have come across before. Overall though,  I feel the magic of this retreat is the holistic approach you take, where every aspect has been carefully considered to make it personal, thought provoking and inspirational"  - Rachel, UK  - Read her full review here
