Purification - Cleansing / Detoxification

Saucha (Purity) is the first Niyama in the Yoga teachings requiring us to cleanse the body externally and internally to make it pure, healthy and strong in order to express and fulfill the purpose of the Spirit. Juice fasting, cleansing diet, colon cleansing (this is not colonics), steam bath, shat kriyas, pranayama, etc. are part of our activities for purifying the body at Shanti Yoga. Two specific support services available are Fasting and Deep Detox.  For information, contact Durga.

Aromatherapy and Flower Essences

Aromatherapy uses fragrant essential oils. Flower Essences are non-fragrant extracts. These complementary therapies can profoundly enhance physical, emotional, and mental well being. Generally physical complaints have their origin at the mental and emotional level, and mental and emotional tensions often manifest physically.

Each person’s unique situation will be addressed in a holistic way, imparting a variety of helpful tools for the life’s journey. Profound yet gentle transformation; all natural, safe, & user-friendly.

Reflexology for Women

By stimulating the reflexes in the feet and hands with modulated pressure in the appropriate points, this therapy improves general health by relieving tension, the result of stress or internal dysfunction, and promotes circulation and helps the internal organs to work properly. Can be used for prevention or to ameliorate bodily ailments. Please contact Saraswati.

Natural Diet

Proper Diet as a fundamental teaching of Yoga means caring for our body temple with consciousness and control of not only what we eat but factors such as the quality, combinations, timing, individual constitution and state of mind in which we feed ourselves that all influence our state of health. While there are myriad diet plans available, the common denominator for good health is eating as close to nature as possible and that is what we do while incorporating the principles of yoga into modern life.

Our members have much accumulated knowledge and experience on diet from working with Yoga, Ayurveda, raw food, juicing, Body Ecology Diet, Gerson therapy, Hallelujah Acres, milk diet, Young Therapy, and other vegetarian diets and health regimens.

Diet discussions are included in many classes. Private instruction/consultations are available for those looking for special help in regaining their health through diet. The CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program provides fresh vegetables, fruit and other wholesome foods for a balanced diet year round. The Spiritual Food for the New Millennium Mail Order Service offers Biodynamic and organic food and these are available for local participants as well.
