Digesting Life virtual mini retreat with McKinley Tennant @kinyoga
We'll spend a few hours learning tools and building our insight on digesting well - physically and emotionally.
This is an informational and experiential blend of yoga, meditation, eating, and self reflection.
We'll start with a yogic practice. McKinley will get us settled within ourselves, and guide us through practices to improve digestion - asana, pranayam, and meditation.
I'll lead us through a guided abdominal self massage - a great way to get in touch with your tummy, as well as to calm and soothe.
We'll share a silent meal together, and learn the best ways to approach eating as we experience them firsthand.
Once we've nourished ourselves, I'll guide self reflective assessments on digestive patterns so you are clear on where you are at and what you need to support YOUR digestion. We'll discuss digestive supports from Ayurveda, and I'll do live case study with participants so we can learn through each other's experiences.
Of course, we'll send you off with resources and insight to support your digestion for years to come.
Weeklong guided cleanse with Ayurvedic chef Meredith Klein.
I'll be teaching Seasonal Ayurveda hacks midweek.
The Pranaful Cleanse was designed by Meredith as a hybrid juice fast and Ayurvedic cleanse, to provide an experience that is both effective in facilitating detoxification, while also nourishing for body, mind and spirit. The cleanse is perfect whether you are an experienced cleanser or if this is your first cleansing experience, and is particularly effective for individuals who have struggled with liquids-only fasts. (Note: juicing is optional and a cooked breakfast option is offered as part of the cleanse plan for those who do not have a juicer or would prefer something a bit more substantial in the mornings).
Perhaps what people love most about the Pranaful Cleanse is the deep space it creates for personal reflection/introspection, and the opportunity to be supported by a loving, vibrant online community. Each day, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with other cleanse participants in a live online setting or via a group forum. Come experience it for yourself!
Participants in the cleanse can expect:
Increased energy levels by the end of the week
Better digestive functioning
Heightened mental clarity
Diminished cravings for sugar, caffeine and processed foods
Motivation to make better food choices, eat more mindfully, and stay committed to self-care
A community to share with during this uncertain time

Here are my Level 2 classes for those enrolled in year 2 of Shakti School in 2021.
One in three women in the US will have cancer. One in five will die from it. These statistics are several years old, which means that incidence and mortality are likely higher than when we last did the analysis. Let’s talk about why cancer happens and why it’s so prevalent. Also, let’s look at psychospiritual factors and treatment integration.
The health of our heart and blood is so much deeper than our lab values and diet. I’ll present physical and emotional factors playing into happy circulation, and we’ll approach healing from the same holistic lens.
Our goal is to see the opportunity for integration of Ayurveda with Modern Medicine, and other modalities. A good portion of this class is dedicated to live case discussion, so come ready to ask about ailments you, clients, or loved ones are experiencing.

Ayurveda is a very sophisticated science when it comes to understanding digestion. Yet, even within Ayurveda, it’s so common to find these reductionist approaches to food, healing, and supporting digestion. I hope to keep alive the core holistic essence of Ayurveda, by including the emotional and psychospiritual layers in the digestive experience. We’ll review four major categories of digestive issues: constipation, diverticular diseases, ulcerative and inflammatory diseases, and cancerous and benign growths.
This topic is a needed adjunct to the physical focus of Ayurveda, and self care. We’ll cover my most pertinent insights and practices for psychospiritual wellness. Of course, we’ll do some live case study, and self reflective exercises so you can begin to apply.
With women taking on more, and the growing incidence of reproductive cancers, it’s an important time to strengthen our intuition, our ojas, and our ability to connect to nature’s rhythms. Mood sadhana is one of the most powerful ways to do so. Understanding the emotional functions of your monthly cycle is also helpful context to navigate your personal experience. We’ll also do some self assessment and reflection.
