Online Spring Cleanse: April 23–29, 2018
Nourish yourself, clear your mind, and make self-care a priority...all with the support of a nurturing community!
You are invited to join Ayurvedic chef / lifestyle coach Meredith Klein this spring for a week-long food-based cleansing experience! If you are ready to shine your brightest and live in your fullest potential, the Pranaful Cleanse will help boost your prana (vital life force energy) and bring your body closer to a state of optimal health to assist you in fulfilling your deepest intentions! The cleanse is a fantastic way to reconnect to personal intentions for 2018, as well as an opportunity to recommit to self-care routines that may have slipped amidst life's many demands.
The Pranaful Cleanse was designed by Meredith as a hybrid juice fast and Ayurvedic cleanse, to provide an experience that is both effective in facilitating detoxification, while also nourishing for body, mind and spirit. The cleanse is perfect whether you are an experienced cleanser or if this is your first cleansing experience, and is particularly effective for individuals who have struggled with liquids-only fasts.
Perhaps what people love most about the Pranaful Cleanse is the deep space it creates for personal reflection/introspection, and the opportunity to be supported by a loving, vibrant online community. Come experience it for yourself!
Participants in the cleanse can expect:
- Increased energy levels by the end of the week
- Better digestive functioning
- Feelings of lightness within the body
- Heightened mental clarity
- Diminished cravings for sugar, caffeine and processed foods
- Motivation to make better food choices, eat more mindfully, and stay committed to self-care
During the cleanse, you have the opportunity to lovingly prepare all of your meals, one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. Each morning, you will enjoy a delicious green juice, packed with ingredients to detoxify the body from the inside out. Lunch and dinner consists of kitchari (spiced mung beans and rice – a complete protein meal) and a selection of Ayurvedic condiments to warm your belly and provide the sustenance you need for your active lifestyle. Optional supplements, teas and cleansing routines inspired by ancient Ayurvedic wisdom can also be integrated into the program, based on your individual needs. Unlike other cleanses that can deplete your energy and leave you feeling lethargic, the Pranaful Cleanse is specifically designed to help conserve and maintain your energy throughout the duration of the program, so that you can carry on with your normal routines with ease. Moreover, Meredith will offer expert guidance to allow you to tailor the cleanse to support your individual work, family and lifestyle demands.
The online cleanse experience includes three live calls (also available as mp3 downloads) during and after the week-long process to guide your journey, and to provide an opportunity for you to ask Meredith questions and share experiences with your co-cleansers. We also stay connected via a lively online forum where cleansers build community and support one another throughout the week.
