I am super excited to announce our upcoming Pure Bliss Cleanse in partnership with Pure Juicery and Nirvana Yoga in the Village of Barrington!

Join us September 21st-30th and step in to Fall with a clean body, a clear mind & an open heart.

Fall is a wonderful time to clean out our bodies, minds and spirits in preparation for the winter hibernation {yes, winter is coming…again ;-)}.  If you’ve been interested in trying a cleanse before, but have a hard time sticking with it or worried you’ll be starving or having to stomach boring, bland food well then the cleanse we have created is for you :)

The cleanse begins on the Fall Equinox, Monday, September 21st and ends Wednesday, September 30th.  Included in the cleanse is kick-start class Sunday, September 20th at 4pm where we will gather and discuss how to live and eat consciously, as well as explore the benefits of cleansing.  As we complete our cleanse we will all gather again at Nirvana Yoga in the Village with an incredible heart-centered yoga class with Marlene Rucks on Wednesday, September 30th at 5pm.

The purpose of this cleanse is not starvation or deprivation.  The purpose is to slow down and give our bodies the chance to clean out and let go of whatever is no longer serving us.  

Your cleanse includes: 9 juices {1 per day} 18 whole-food plant-based meals {2 per day}* 9 healthy snacks {1 per day}* 1 yoga class at Nirvana Yoga with Marlene Rucks Conscious Eating and Detox Class with Jamie & Alina

Cost: $395/person
