Take time to reclaim your health and energy. Practicing yoga when your body is laden down with toxic and low life-energy food is like wading through treacle, every posture feels heavy and restrictive. The joints and muscles feel tight and locked in. Whereas, when you detox your body from these energy draining food and bring life back into the body, you can transition with ease and your restrictions no longer lay in our joints and connective tissue.
You can choose to stay either on a double or twin room.
The etymological meaning of “nutrition” literally means "process of light", and fundamentally, light can only come from plants. Both inside and out, your cells crave the electrical frequencies of light that they can identify with (plants). That’s why when you overwhelm your body with dead and processed foods and also toxic chemicals in the form of commercial soaps, skin creams, and petroleum-based sunscreen, over time and distance, some form of sickness or disease will manifest.
Fatigue, foggy thinking, poor sleeping patterns, repeated ailments like colds, coughs, and headaches, and a general lack of motivation are all symptoms of the body entering a stage of chronic disease. Different foods have varying effects on the chakra energy system. They can support, hinder, or be neutral to it. Dense and processed foods have a low life-force energy and tend to close the chakras down, while light foods with higher life-force energy levels tend to open them.
