Detox & Yoga Program with Manuela Peverelli

The material body has a practical reality that is accessible. It is here and now and we find shelter in it. It is the aim of all forms of yoga to move from the most outer surface of our being to penetrate inwards and free the light of the soul. Along the path we experience the energetic body and explore the various shapes of the mind.

Fasting and detoxifying assist in clarifying those layers in a profound way. It is not surprising that such process can be found in most spiritual traditions. The process is also effective getting rid of harmful acids and toxins, clearing out unwanted accumulations of mucus, removing blockages in the colon and generally improving circulation - thereby positively impacting our health, so that the Prana (our life force) can flow through all layers.
The experience has proven that the energy of a group and daily guidance help the individual to go through this process of cleansing and letting go with more ease.

This Detox & Yoga program is directed in a holistic approach by using many of the tools of Hatha Yoga such as asana, pranayama, meditation, mudra, mantra, self-study and kriya.

Manuela Peverelli is a yoga teacher since 2008. Her attitude and approach towards life is deeply influenced by the Vedic and Buddhist philosophy and practice. An education in Ayurvedic psychology at the European Ayurveda Academy in 2013 has enriched her original background in western psychiatric nursery.
Manuela’s teaching is dynamic and powerful, but at the same time a journey to the inner stillness as our refuge. For her, the techniques of Yoga are simply the tools to create a more harmonized home within the body and mind for recognizing the essence of the real self (equal the emptiness of all self in the buddhist tradition).
Manuela currently lives and teaches in Zurich, but for her own studies and practice periods she also spends a few months yearly in Asia.

These seven days will be the main detoxifying days without any solid food. Depending on the intention of the cleanse and the individual constitution participants will either substitute their meals with veggie juices, veggie soup or whole vegetables and fruits. The intake of herbal teas, coconut water and other supplements will provide the body with the essential minerals and vitamins.
The combination of Psyllium (soluble dietary fiber) together with Bentonite clay (healing clay) will support the elimination of the toxins in the system. This intake is all done at home, but Manuela offers her full support and direction to go through this process.
The mornings will start with a session of seated practices (chanting, mudras, meditation, kryias and pranayama) to cleanse and harmonize the subtle body and then will be followed by an Asana practice. The Asana-Teaching can be adjusted according to the energy level of the group and the individual.
Besides the familiar techniques of Yoga the sessions will also include guidance for self-reflection (Svadhyaya) and group exchanges about the personal experience.
Wednesday, May 1, 2019 from 9:00am to 12:00am (studio 2):
On the last day, after a meditation and an asana practice, the fasting is ended with a fasting ritual and the programme is concluded together. In the remaining time, the post-detox phase is discussed.

This spring cleanse program is shaped so that the attendees still could attend work in the afternoons. However, if one has the option, it is highly recommended to make space in the daily schedule and to reduce stress and time demands as much as possible.

To leave solid food and other habits away for a few days and to go through the process of detoxification requires energy, which might reduce the energy level on some days and will increase it on other days, why it is recommended to find the necessary rest, so that the body does not create more toxins through stress.

The Detox & Yoga program is meant for students with a steady Yoga Asana practice of a minimum of two years, basic Pranayama knowledge and a stable mental and physical health.
The process of inner cleansing usually does bring some side effects, some comfortable and also not so comfortable ones, which one needs to be willing to face.
