Greetings,

As most of you know, I live in the great NYC area. We are experiencing a perfect sunny day with mild temperatures. Soon, I will be taking my outdoor shoes for a walk in the park, with yogic breathing, followed by gentle asana practice.

Yes, today is Spring Equinox ­čî▒- day and night are equal in length- the sun aligns with the Equator. I am obsessed with Spring, flowers, extra light, plants and birds.

Spring is also an ideal time for a reset, reboot of the digestive system, with a gentle detox program, inspired in Ayurveda- the sister science of Yoga.

A detox or cleanse, done in Spring, is an ultimate act of self-care, promoting strengthening of the digestive system, increased energy and mental clarity.

My intention for an Ayurvedic inspired detox is to attain internal balance, just like it naturally happens during a Spring Equinox.

Mindfulness is the key ingredient, as we become more aware of habits, a pause to create new ones promote better health and wellbeing.
