I’ve been doing a yoga teacher training on the weekends for the last few weeks. I did it mainly to deepen my yoga practice but it turns out, I love it a lot more than I realized I would. In any case, I’m approaching Week 7 and this means that on Monday, November 7th, I begin a five day cleanse. I’ve never done an actual cleanse/detox before and I’m a little apprehensive about it but it’s only Monday through Friday next week and I’ll be writing about it every night to report on whether my detox actually changes my life as much as all my yogi friends seem to believe it will. It’s not nearly as intense as the infamous Master Cleanse, although I have friends that have done that one for up to thirty days and swear by its effects. But this modified cleanse we’re doing is supposed to achieve similar results and all the yogis who have done this before swear that I’ll still be able to remain active, work, and continue my regular exercise routine while participating.
So if anyone else is interested in joining me, I’m publishing all the secrets of this yogi cleanse. It appears that my boyfriend and my roommate are joining me which is great because then I won’t be the only around here that’s possibly irritable. In any case, I went to Target today to stock up on water bottles and thermoses so that we can bring our allowable liquid food intake to work with us. I’ll have to stock up at Whole Foods on Sunday for the rest of the stuff. So here are the details.
