This 4-day cleanse is designed to detox the body in a gentle way with no feeling of deprivation. In the program, students will be using delicious natural wholefoods, juices, smoothies and herbal teas, all combined with yoga, nutrition discussions, and relaxation. Practitioners will be guided along your detox journey and receive a menu ensuring that the dishes offer enzymes, fiber, and antioxidants to initiate a cleansing process and facilitate metabolic toxin removal. Along the way, attendants will experience the recalibration of your taste buds and appetite, and will start the digestion healing process.

"Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh taught Yoga and Vedanta, which came to the West through his many disciples like Satchidananda, Vishnudevananda, Ventakeshananda and Jyotirmayananda. The Sivananda Yoga-Vedanta centers founded by Swami Vishnudevananda teach regular programs on Yoga-Vedanta and with references to Ayurveda as well. I have done many programs with this organization and find it to be the best Yoga training group in the west." -Dr. David Frawley
