"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for what was such a beautiful and transformative training. I can very honestly say I love yin EVEN MORE after our time together.
I also loved the overlapping of tantra and five element theory! I greatly appreciate your authenticity, kindness, curiosity and sense of lifelong learning.
Thank you for the fabulous filmed resources, the beautiful booklet and of course your time in relaying these teachings. I personally feel that the SO WHAT of Yin in today's world cannot be overestimated." - Maisy
YOGA DETOX WEEK
When: Jan 11-18, 2021
How: Each evening you'll be sent an email with the link to your morning practice plus suggestions for your home cleanse.
Start the new year with a daily practice to invite clarity, energy and ease. Set up the habits that will nourish and inspire you. Throughout this week of cleansing asana, pranayama, suggested eating and home rituals you will create a foundation of optimal and holistic health. With daily inspiration to your inbox, a morning practice Monday to Friday and longer weekend workshops you will take the tools that yoga has to offer well beyond the mat. It’s my hope that you enter 2021 light, fresh and clear.
No prior experience required, all levels are welcomed.
"Maryanne, I just want to say thank you very much for your Yoga Detox Week, it was exactly what I needed to kick off the year and get me back on the mat. It certainly felt wonderful to have a week dedicated to reacquainting myself with the wonders of yoga. So many good memories came flooding back to my body, mind and soul. I now feel inspired to continue…. I enjoyed your daily emails. It was good to be reminded about decluttering and also to think about how important ‘Earthing’ is in our day to day lives. I’m also interested to try some of the natural beauty products you let us know about. As for the weekend workshops I thought it was a great idea to have Saturday strenuous and Sunday so restful, a good balance and perfect way to end the week." - Libby
