Autumn Cleanse

with Dr. Clare Craig, Naturopathic Doctor

Autumn is a natural time of transition and an ideal opportunity for a gentle cleanse that will retune your body and mind, and prime your system for a winter (and a lifetime!) of wellness.  The view in Ayurveda, yoga’s sister science of medicine, is that we accumulate heat in our tissues in summer, and when fall arrives with its cool winds, this fans those fires.  This can foster or encourage inflammation, which many medical specialists believe is one of the root causes of many chronic illnesses.  This inflammation can also lead to mental and physical burnout, stressing the adrenals, nervous system and liver, putting some of the body’s natural detoxification processes on hold.  It can also deplete our reserves to fight off infection, just as we are getting more exposed.
 
Fall should be a time to slow down and restore.  It is a chance to support the body’s ability to eliminate toxins, take stock of the influences we allow in our lives, from food to technology to thoughts, and make space for habits and choices that will help to establish the health and vibrancy we want.
 
Join us from October 14 – November 4, for our 4th Annual Autumn Cleanse.  This comprehensive three-week program, led by our Naturopathic Doctor, Clare Craig, gives you all the tools to complete a safe, effective, healthful cleanse, re-establish a healthy diet, and kick start the upcoming season.  And you get to do it with your fellow Moksha yogis!

October 14-November 4

DIY Mala Making Workshop

In this 2hr workshop you will learn about the different properties of prayer beads and stones and how to create a mala that is special and unique for you. You don't need to be an expert jeweler to create your own mala, it is very simple but does require some focus and patience...kinda like meditation. As you make your mala you can weave in intention and positive energy, as Malas are known for their energetic powers of healing. Great as a gift for yourself or for someone special! At the end of the workshop we will explore how to use the mala for meditation and then take 15 min for a silent meditation.

What to bring:
  • 108 beads: you can choose any type of stone, seeds, wood, etc for the beads.
  • Small spacer beads, accent beads, or pendants are also a great addition to your mala
  • Beads can be purchased at the studio before we start the workshop (start at 27 cents each) or at any local bead shop.
  • Tray or container lid as workspace to place your beads.
  • Cushion to sit on (some chairs will be provided).
  • Chords and materials for closing the mala will be provided

Cost: $25 | $20 for auto renew members.
