What Is a Seasonal Ayurvedic Cleanse?

What Is a Seasonal Ayurvedic Cleanse?

What Is a Seasonal Ayurvedic Cleanse?

A seasonal cleanse is a time to re-organize yourself to the rhythms of nature. Change is in the air! Yogis forever have recognized the need to synchronize and adjust with the changing seasons. This approach is absolutely necessary to stay healthy, vibrant, and in tune with our changing biochemistry and evolutionary expression.

When we take time twice a year to slow down, re-evaluate, rejuvenate, and recalibrate, we slow down time, and the process of aging. We simplify and get in touch with the direction of where our life is taking us. Is it the way you want to go? If not, the process of a cleanse is a perfect opportunity to recognize patterns that are not serving your highest interest.

These cleanses are like a time out. The “pause” interrupts the momentum of our patterns. Are your everyday habits helping you be who you really want to be? Or…. are they creating more chaos, stress and adversity? Press pause on those patterns! Create some space, then choose consciously what to perpetuate.

The process of cleansing helps our body and mind to release excess heat and toxicity. We accumulate toxic build up from media, NEWS, computers…even breathing! Oh and of course what we eat, drink, think, and feel. These toxins whether they are physical or emotional, distort the body’s true intelligence. Toxicity makes us feel “off” and we will even start to crave that which is not good for us! By reducing this toxicity, we start to feel and see things differently and become more in tune with our deeper wisdom and what our body truly needs to thrive. From this new starting ground, we are empowered to make real change in our lives.

Oh Yea, a seasonal cleanse also helps reduce excess weight from summertime / wintertime indulgence. A cleanse will help you establish new routines, and improve your immunity throughout the changing seasons (a time we are most susceptible to illness). We need our health to be top notch to avoid the crazy bugs these days!

My first seasonal cleanse was in 2004… The year my first son was born. I was adapting to my new role as a mom, and was a bit overwhelmed to be truthful. I felt heavy, and had no desire to leave my house for exercise, walks or much of anything. I remember those days of the nest, so precious… I decided to try my first Ayurvedic inspired cleanse. Because I was breastfeeding, I chose a very simple nourishing cleanse. This consists of less “taking away” and more nourishing, rejuvenating practices. This cleanse was truly a turning point of healing for me. After that, I was hooked! I have practiced some form of a cleanse every Spring and Fall since then! I LOOK FORWARD to these islands as a resting place. Life that can seem to move so fast!.

There are three different levels I choose from for a seasonal cleanse -MIld, medium or spicy!

The way to choose is to truthfully look at your needs.

Nourishing cleanse -if you feel overextended, stressed, overwhelmed inflamed or in pain. You need to ground down, and slow down! Think mild and rejuvenating.
Basic cleanse -For lightening up, reducing fat, cleansing and improving your self care
Detox- Reducing body mass, deeper detox, big shift.

The point is, YOU design a cleanse that suits your needs. – I can help you do that!

What is Yoga Mantra

What is Yoga Mantra

What is Yoga Mantra

A mantra is a sacred sound, word, or phrase. Thoughts and words are the very vibration from which we create. The etymology of the word mantra, takes us to the root manas which means heart / mind. ‘Tra’ means to traverse, to protect, or to cross over, to bridge the heart and the mind together.

The repetition of mantra shifts our vibration. Like attracts like. When we are spinning in fear, negativity or limitation, this is what we tend to attract and perpetuate. Physics proves it over and over with this universal principle. The right mantra can protect us from harmful patterns of mind and spinning emotions. At any time we can interrupt negative momentum and anchor into Love, and Universal support. With mantra, we cross the bridge of perception and connect deeply with our highest intention. We are not limited to our fear and pain. Who we are is much bigger than that. Mantra can help us remember that field of possibility.

That said, it is necessary to welcome the whole of who we are. Our suffering does not want to be denied. It wants our attention and patience. When we try to cover over the pain and push it down by pasting on false positivity, we actually short circuit our deep healing! But, as we turn toward the pain of what challenges us, allow ourselves to feel, and be present in our pain, we can also find comfort in healing sounds and words. Being real with ourselves is critical. Only from here can we begin to dissolve the scar tissue and let it go into the ocean of love. Try it next time. When you are caught in a negative mind set, take time to listen. What is the source? Go into the sensation and wait for what you know. Write it down. Bring your loving awareness breath, and compassion there. Then, when you are ready, start to shift the trajectory.

A mantra can be given to you by a teacher or guide. It may also be your most beloved prayer, or a phrase chosen by your own loving heart. Examples of mantras can be as simple as “Thank You.” or “I love myself and I give love freely.” “I am blissful, I am Free, I am forever.” ‘I am strong, my heart is pure”.

You may also encounter mantras in a yoga class… (I love them)… Perhaps the words are in Sanskrit, a beautiful and magical language. It is good to know the translations of these words to put the full power of your heart behind them if you so choose.

Repetition, or ‘Jappa’ is key! Often a mantra is repeated 108x’s -a sacred number in the yogic tradition or, even chanted continuously, throughout the day. You can do this silently, softly, or full blast to keep you on track. Rosary beads, Mala beads, or even bowls with stones can be used to count during mantra meditation. It’s a great way to retrain our minds to Divine frequency and watch the knots of suffering unravel!

The beautiful Mala beads in the picture above are created by local artist and yogini Beth Robbins. Find them at our studio! 50% percent of all proceeds go to create:

Yoga Health Coaching

My Name is Andrea Thibaudeau,

As a Certified Yoga Health Coach, I help women ages 35-65 reclaim their health and vitality.  It is my passion to guide and empower groups and individuals with the knowledge of how to heal.  Ayurveda as the science of Life, directly affects our experience of living, and free us up with more energy discover what we are really here to do!

Women are healers, and they want to give.  In many cases, we give too much energy away.  This can leave us depleted, sick, and run down.  It doesn’t have to be this way.  When the pulse of life and polarities are unbalanced, we become immobilized.   This tendency to give from a place of depletion can lead to a state of catharsis, where women remain disconnected from what they are truly capable of.  In some cases, they are left unable to help, or heal, even themselves.  The results are too costly to measure.

Now, more than ever, it is critical for women to be fiercely dedicated to their health and remember how to put themselves first…  That’s right, I said FIRST!   Only in this way can we rally our strength to fully serve.  This is what it is going to take to evolve relationships, empower communities, and heal the planet.  

As a nationally certified Yoga Instructor and Ayurvedic Health Coach, I teach women how to honor themselves and their bodies in a way that they can uncover their true power and potential.  With the wisdom of Yoga, Ayurveda, and habit change science / technology, I teach ancient, yet practical ways to create change, and find balance.   

I invite you to the process of conscious healing at all levels, physical, psychological, pranic, emotional and spiritual.  The techniques we use are simple and work.  All change we strive for, is rooted in Self Love, and never a sense of lack.  When we give to others from a source of abundance and overflow, we create space for the highest transformation to occur.  When we regulate and optimize our physiology, more than we dream of becomes possible and available.  By honoring ourselves, we step fully into our Dharma (Path) and serve others and this beautiful planet in the highest way.

Sign up to train with me, and discover the vibrancy within, as you learn to regulate the systems of your body and open your mind to more of what is possible.  This life affirming approach to Better Self care and awakened mindfulness will naturally tap you into your limitless creative energy and gifts.  

I am a certified RYT 200….(Twice)   and have countless training hours in addition to these programs.  I am currently finishing my  RYT 500 with Sianna Sherman in Mythic Yoga.  I have been a student of Ayurveda for 8 years.  My main teacher is Cate Stillman.  I have completed her course to become a nationally certified as a Yoga Health Coach.

With over 20 years of Yoga experience and 16 years of full on dedicated teaching, Yoga and Ayurveda are my way of life.  These ancient practices have healed my body, mind, and soul over and over and over again as they continue to pull me deeper into the beauty and abundance of all this life has to offer.

It is my passion and gift, to share these practices with you in a way that is inclusive, encouraging, skillful and fun.  Discover the beauty and sacredness of what you have to offer.  To invest in Your SELF, and bring forth the gifts only you have to give, is the Ultimate offering!

A Fall Ayurvedic Tip for Immunity and Energy

A Fall Ayurvedic Tip for Immunity and Energy

It’s that time again! The seasonal shift is here.

Ayurveda recognizes the shift in seasons, and how they affect our body, health, and immune system. Fall time is a time to release excess summer heat and cleanse the body in order to prepare for the decrease of light and colder temperatures.

How would it feel for you to stay healthy through the winter months? Have you been getting sick a lot in past winters? Imagine no more achy joints or coughs that last for three months! Would you like to learn what you can do to improve your well being and immunity?

All those summer BBQ’s and beer….. It’s time for a new chapter. Fall is time for nourishment. Optimally, even our food choices shift with the seasons for balanced and deep nourishment.
