Conscious Cleansing for the New Year

with Laurel Attanasio

January 13 |  12-2pm|  $35 online, $40 at door

Every day we are exposed to extreme amounts of toxins from air pollution, household chemicals, over-the- counter and prescription drugs, processed foods, alcohol and caffeine. In addition, our bodies are negatively impacted by the stresses of everyday life. The body has mechanisms for eliminating toxins, such as breathing, sweating, urinating and bowel movements, but sometimes it needs a little bit of help.

The workshop will include an hour and a half vinyasa practice that will combine breath and movement while flowing through a sequence of twisting, standing, forward bending, back bending and inverted poses stimulating detoxification through the circulatory, digestive and lymphatic systems. The practice will be followed by an informational session focusing on simple everyday ways to cleanse through diet, exercise and personal hygiene.
Bonus: You will receive Laurel’s 30 + page e-booklet, which includes an acid/alkaline chart, explanation of the detox system, juice, smoothie, soup & salad recipes and much more.

ABOUT LAUREL:
Laurel has been teaching yoga for over a decade throughout the Lehigh Valley and all over the globe. She often likes to describe herself as a yoga gypsy who loves her home, but loves to explore the beauty of the world and help others experience it with her. Her yoga teaching style encourages her students to disconnect from the world and reconnect with themselves. Flow through yoga poses, breathe with intention and connect with the beauty within and without. Laurel’s classes are for all levels and she will provide modifications as needed.
Laurel completed both the 200 hour teacher training program and 300 hour advanced teacher training at The Yoga Loft. She holds a Mat Pilates certification from Hard Core Pilates in Frenchtown, NJ, which compliments her yoga training, allowing her to bring a greater understanding of anatomy and movement to her classes. She loves using yoga and Pilates to assist her students in becoming stronger, relieving stress, preventing injury, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
