YOGA & DETOX Weekend

6-8 October 2017
Les Racines du Ciel organic farm, Lassa

Autumn is here! Now is the time to purify your body and strengthen your immune system, in preparation for the cold season. Join us for a detox weekend which combines yoga sessions with a mono diet of apples (organic of course!) in an exceptional setting overlooking the Nahr Ibrahim valley.

What is a mono diet?
The mono diet is a period of time in which you eat only one food. The purpose of the mono diet is to give your body a chance to heal and cleanse. Reducing the food intake to one type of fruit eases digestion, thus allowing the body to re-alkalinize itself, detoxifying the liver and blood, and helping with weight loss. The apple is ideal for mono diets because of its anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties, and it is also known to reduce appetite.

Practicing yoga during a mono diet enhances the detoxifying effect. With classical Hatha Yoga postures, we will massage the digestive system and the organs, hence catalyzing the elimination process. With a lighter body and a clearer mind, we will then tackle some traditional yogic breathing exercises, making way for a state of meditation and calm. 
The yoga classes will be taught by Sarah Warde (Founder of Hamsa Yoga Space, Beirut) in English and/or French and are suited to all levels and physical conditions.

About Sarah:
Sarah first began practicing yoga 10 years ago. In 2010, she enrolled in a four-year yoga teacher training at the Ecole Française de Yoga in Paris. During her training, Sarah gave regular classes and workshops in various studios, for adults, kids, pregnant women and people with injuries. In late 2014, she returned to Lebanon and taught in various places, until she founded Hamsa Yoga Space, a unique yoga studio in the heart of Beirut which offers yoga classes for all, every day of the week.
