Spring Detox
A 4 Week Detox Program With Judith Gisser
Join innovative Board Certified Nutrition Specialist and Wellness Coach, Judith Gisser, for a 4 week detox program and spring forward with a fresh look at how the simple, everyday choices you make, can transform you: inside and out.
In our yoga practice, we learn to listen to our bodies, joining mind, body and spirit to stretch ourselves further, to take our twists deeper, to hold our balances longer, to relax a little more. Take your yoga practice off the mat with Judith's Spring Detox and learn to apply the same mindfulness you create in yoga, to the choices you make in your daily life.
Judith shares her vast knowledge of the energetics of common foods, teaching you to easily clear, support and rejuvenate your major cleansing organs: liver, kidneys, colon, lungs and skin!
You can expect:
1. Renewed energy
2. Reduced cravings
3. Reduced headaches/pains
4. Clearer skin
5. Clarity of mind
6. Sense of inner peace
7. A new-found relationship between you and food

MELT Beginner Series
Two Options: 3 Week Sunday Series or 4 Week Wednesday Series with Hilary Bilkis
In this 90 minute 3 week series, or 75 minute 4 week series we will explore the basic principles of using MELT roller and balls to rehydrate the connective tissue in your body. Hydrated connective tissue provides better support for muscles, bones, joints, organs, and nerves, so the body naturally works more efficiently from the inside out. Body awareness, alignment, and relaxation all improve almost immediately when you tap into this powerful tissue in the body. MELT rollers and balls will be available for purchase at the first session, and participants are encouraged to have them at home for practice in between sessions.
