May 3 - May 6 | Cammal Bed & Breakfast, PA | Starting at $409
Due to popular demand, this workshop has been turned into a 4 day retreat! Join Maura Manzo, eRYT 200 & health coach, and Lisa Hibberd, licensed massage therapist, for a long weekend dedicated to getting rid of toxins ~ physically, mentally and emotionally!
Each of us are exposed to toxins, every day – whether from the foods we eat, air we breathe, or our negative thought patterns and processes. Purifying our mind, body and spirit is essential to help us become more present and more awake to our fully realized selves, both on and off the mat. Wring it all out to clear the space for health, purpose and your highest intention. Expect to leave the weekend feeling clearer, more energized and inspired to commit to a more healthful lifestyle.
Yoga practices will rotate between vigorous and restorative. The Vinyasa practice will consist of sun salutations and twists to stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic system, as well as to cleanse the intestinal tract – be ready to sweat! Restorative practices and breathing exercises will work to assist the body in rebalancing and healing. Meditation will also be practiced daily. There will also be ample time for exploring the great outdoors via hiking, biking and walking. Plus, each participant will experience the ancient benefits of meditation and compassion in the physical form of Thai Massage.
Throughout the course of the weekend, expect to learn important concepts and engage in various exercises designed to support the destressing and detoxifying of the entire being, as well as nutritional information and recipes to take home. All meals will be organic, whole-foods based and will assist the body in the process of detoxification. Because this is a detox weekend, there will be no alcohol or caffeine. There will also be no wheat, meat or dairy products. Sugar, too, will be eliminated as much as possible (with the exception of fruit).
Please bring a small towel, journal and a reusable water bottle. Students will receive an in-depth email two weeks prior to the retreat to help them prepare. This retreat is open to all skill levels, but previous yoga experience highly recommended.
" We detoxify/cleanse for many reasons, mainly to do with health, vitality, and rejuvenation--to clear symptoms, treat disease, and prevent further problems. A cleansing program is ideal for helping us to reevaluate our lives, to make changes, or to clear abuses ...I cleanse because it makes me feel more productive, creative, and open to subtle and spiritual energies. Many people also detox or cleanse for spiritual renewal and to feel more alive, awake, and aware." ~ Dr Elson Haas, author, Stayng Healthy with the Seasons, The New Detox Diet

What People Are Saying:
"This workshop was truly amazing. I can't even explain how I felt afterward. I have been trying to let go of feelings that I have continued to carry around from a relationship about a year and a half ago. I have been trying to let go of these feelings during every yoga class for a LONG time. I can honestly say that while holding lizard pose, I was able to let go. I was able to link it to the emotional pain I have been feeling. I remember that during the pose I was telling myself that if I could hold this pose, I could release all of that pain in my heart. I held the pose the entire duration even though I so desperately wanted to come out. My hip hurt so much but when I came out of the pose something had changed. It was truly such a pivotal moment for me. Now I can move on with out longing for this person to change his mind. My heart is open again! Truly, everything about this workshop was amazing. Thank you for all of your inspiring yoga classes. I know that I am a better person because of the lessons you have taught me is your classes."
"Maura, I just had to tell you had energized I felt after the detox session. I had to drive back to Toms River and was a little weary. Once I got home, I was full of energy and the next day, too, I was so energetic. I got up
early, went to the gym for a class and then came home and ran about 4 miles even though I was a little sore from yoga. I felt goodall day. Thank you for awesome afternoon."
"I woke up feeling calm and excited at the same time!! Thank you Maura for an amazing workshop. I can't wait for more!"
