Kenny Page and the urban lawyer cleanse.

Mr Kenny Page, esquire departed today 10 pounds lighter refreshed and inspired with new kundalini yoga sets!
We rarely can accept men here at our sacred retreat, unless they come as the beloved’s of one of our regular yogini clients. But this man won us over, and we are so glad. We loved meeting and supporting Kenny through his first ever juice cleanse, and  look froward to welcoming him back hohm often. He has an intense law practice in New York City so really needed the restorative time to tune back in to his center. We hope he made some headway on a very cool novel he his writing!

We call Dry Skin Brushing ” Health Insurance”

The lymphatic system runs just under the skin, wherever you have skin surface. If I knew when my babies were little, what I know now, I would have started dry skin brushing them with a soft chamoise brush, the day they were born.  The thing about the lymph system- the network that produces and carries lymph ( that’s the WATER in our bodies and control central for our immunity), is that , unlike our blood that is pumped powerfully along by the heart, the lymph cannot move unless WE move. So if we are not excersising, or if we assume habitual postures that create certain parts of the body not to move, the lymph will stop moving, it will be slow and sluggish and you will FEEL slow and sluggish.  If we really go long stretches of time without moving these body areas ( front of chest and underarms , or front groins that close down when we sit for long periods of time), it might stop moving altogether and the lymph, just like a river that has pooled and stopped moving, will putrify and not do what it is meant to do: MOVE toxins, cancer, and virus’s OUT of the body. Lymph moves TOWARD the heart. Sweet. Lymph is also a greenish color. Sweeter. Green is the color vibration of the heart chakra, it is the color of the sun’s energy. Blood moves out from the heart with our heart beat speeding it along. Lymph moves in toward the heart with our body movement pushing it along.There is nothing better you can do during your juice fast, juice feast, and every day of your life than dry skin brush.
