14 Day Spring Detox & Rejuvenation Cleanse With Michele
Join Michele Loew & Yoga Space yogis & teachers in this 14 day group Detox & Rejuvenation cleanse to improve vitality and energy, shift bad eating habits into great ones, and improve your body's overall wellness. This will be an incredibly supportive way to get the body back on track, and prepare the body and spirit for our transition into Summer.
Includes 2 optional practice workshops and information sessions, menus, personal guidance and email support from Michele and the group. You can take the workshop at either our NW location or the SE location.
The first week will be a pre-cleanse, and there will menu tracks participants can choose to follow based on their personal dietary needs and choices. This week will focus on elimination of all processed foods, fried food, sugar, alcohol, caffeine, dairy, red meat, & many grains that are known to commonly cause inflammation, with a Vegetarian diet highly recommended. However, healthy non-veggie options such as bone broth will be discussed and not excluded for students wanting to cleanse but not entirely eliminate animal protein. One track option will include Michele's recipe for the delicious and nourishing Ayurvedic Mung Dal & Basmati rice dish called Khichidi. This would be eaten for one meal in early evening, with vegetables, green juice, and some fruit on the menu during the day.
During the second week there will be an option to do a liver cleanse, green juice only, or continue on the Khichidi diet from week one. Preparation for cleansing the liver will include apple cider vinegar, green juice, and apples as snacks for the 3 days before the liver flush. A delicious and very effective liver flush recipe will be given for the final day. Those not doing the liver cleanse can choose to do at least 3 days of green juice to allow the digestive system to rest and renew as well as prepare for colonics or other digestive cleansing practices possible.
Michele has many years of cleansing experience, and finds it a joy to cleanse and support others on this path to self discover and wellness.
Intro session and yoga detox practice at NW studio 7-8:30pm: Wednesday, May 17th. AND or Intro session and practice session at SE studio 7:30-9pm: Thursday May 18th.

Letting the World Speak to You A Meditation and Dharma Discussion with Heather Shaw
Come sit with your Yoga Space sangha. In this monthly series, Yoga Space teacher Heather Shaw offers meditation instruction, as well as an opportunity for a longer quiet contemplative practice, followed by a talk and open discussion over tea. This spring, we continue our focus on cultivating the open heart/mind of compassion both on the cushion and in the world. Weather permitting, we will explore walking meditation, the art of "aimless wandering" and other practices which provide us the opportunity to listen deeply, create space and trust our own innate wisdom as we interact with the world around us.
Heather Shaw has practiced meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition for over 15 years. She is a graduate of the Interdependence Project’s Secular Buddhist Studies Program, as well as an active member of the Portland Shambhala Center. Heather is currently working towards a certificate in Buddhism and Contemplative Psychology through Nalanda Institute (NYC). She draws inspiration from her teachers, who include Charity Martin and Miles Neale. And of course, near and dear to her heart/mind, Heather continues to study with her first meditation teacher and longtime mentor, Ethan Nichtern.
