Food indulgence, weight gain and all night revelry with the company of kith and kin are practically toxins that can catch up with you, as they lower your immunity and make you prone to general aches and pains.
The "New Year, New You Yoga Detox" is a weekend yoga detox designed to shed off the toxins accumulated through kundalini yoga and meditation and a two 'detox-in-a-bottle' cleansing kit formulated by fitness nutritionist-chef and weight loss specialist Nadine Tengco. The kit consists of six bottled detox juices, a cleansing soup, a digestive enzyme bottle and 5 grams ground fiber taken every two hours starting at 8am.
Yogi Bhajan said "Juices must not be drunk, but 'eaten' thoroughly, 'chewed' and mixed with saliva. Vegetable juice fasts are good for losing weight, detoxification and cleansing the organs, cells and tissues of the body."
If you want to detox your body, mind and spirit, the schedule begins on January 8 (Friday) at 6pm with a kundalini yoga and meditation set. The six juice bottles will be distributed that evening for consumption at night. The workshop and cleansing program continues on January 9 and 10 from 10 am to 3:30pm.
To prepare for the juice fast, take plenty of raw vegetables and fruits in your diet at least two days before this weekend to minimize shocking your system. While on the cleanse consume 2-3 liters of distilled water per day and to include peppermint tea which is good for its calming and strengthening effect on the nerves and for indigestion, nausea and flatulence.
