For many, the journey to Ayurveda arrives from the bountiful relationship with yoga, when we realize the practices of asana, pranayam, and meditation are shared components of the Ayurvedic life sciences. The Cleansing/Panchakarma traditions of India are ancient, yet powerful, and enable deep healing. Through Panchakarma, we are able to address many of the acute and equivocal factors of dis-ease at the roots of the matter.
The Treehouse is teaming up with Ayurvedic nutritionist and cook Noël Graupner to offer kundalini yogis a unique opportunity to learn about Yoga's sister science, Ayurveda, and experience a comprehensive Ayurvedic Spring cleanse (also known as Panchakarma) which includes diet, herbal, and movement purification practices aimed at helping the body identify stored winter fat tissue as useable energy, resetting the metabolic function and digestive capacity of all the tissue layers of the body.
Accumulated and stored toxins are brought to the surface of tissues and gently escorted out through elimination channels. The result of the Spring Panchakarma are empowered digestive and immune systems as well as a purified mind to transition gracefully and energetically from the heavy, dulled winter into the light, auspicious Springtime.
The cleanse will be offered in 3-, 5-, and 7- day packages, and will include a daily 3-meal supply of Ayurvedic kitchari*, daily herbal tisanes*, a jar of Noël’s home made ghee*, a pouch of triphala*. A complete toolkit containing Ayurvedic cleansing tools and oils (herbalized body massage oil, herbalized oil-pulling oil, herbalized nasya oil, copper tongue scraper, copper neti pot, thymed-neti salt) may also be purchased separately from Noël for $130.
$135 3-day cleanse
$225 5-day cleanse
$300 7-day cleanse
Daily kitchari and tisanes may be picked up at The Treehouse after morning Sadhana, between 7-8am.
*All organic ingredients
*An orientation class will be offered Sunday March 11 from 2:30-3:45PM on Ayurvedic and Panchakarma theory and is highly recommended but not mandatory to participate in the cleanse.
