Detox practice with Emma Sheridan

Rs. 2500 per person

img-20161106-wa0011Sometimes a little too much sugar, caffeine, alcohol, processed foods and stress can leave you feeling less than healthy after the holidays!!  This build up of toxins can slow the body’s natural detox functions and leave you fatigued and suffering from poor digestion. Ayurveda rests on the premise that the digestive system is at the root of vital health. A clean and clear digestive system equals greater health, clarity, consciousness and vitality.

In this workshop we will learn how you can boost the innate detox and digest functions of your body using pranayama, meditation and special cleansing yoga sequences! For beginners and advanced students alike!

I hope you can join me to restore balance and kickstart 2017 feeling refreshed, cleansed and at your best!
