Easing into Autumn Detoxing with Lynne Taillefer

Easing into Autumn Detoxing with Lynne Taillefer

When we commit to a detox or a cleanse program - we often want to set strict boundaries and push ourselves to the limit. This can not only increase our risk of failure - but also decrease the chance that the effects of the detox last past its conclusion.  Lynne describes her struggle with the tendency to “Stop, Drop, and Detox.” She explains how her perspective on the detox experience changed during her multiple experiences in the YogiDetox program and what she has learned. Jessica and Lynne discuss how the YogiDetox...

The YogiDetox Transformation with Grace Edison

The YogiDetox experience is one that involves complex emotions and challenges. While its rewards can be astounding, it is definitely not an easy journey. Grace Edison explains that before her detoxing experiences, she was not in touch with her emotions and their influence over her actions. Subconsciously experiencing an emotional trigger would lead to her eating comfort food without understanding why. A detox from things we are addicted to can aid us in realizing why we actually seek these comforts in the first place. Grace and Carly discuss that YogiDetox is not...

[Vision Quest] Schedule Your Clairvoyance

In the last post I started the story of the October Yogidetox Vision Quest weekend with Winston. When we emerge from a reset experience like the Yogidetox, we have a new momentum.

You know how good you can feel. You know what to do to feel your own greatest, your own clarity, and to build deeper strength. This...

The Metabolic Efficiency of Radiant Longevity

Does agni ruling your roots? Answer the 5 questions below. Awhile back before I got distracted with juicing thistle and rose hips, breaking glass ceilings, with poop holes and p!e holes I was writing to you about physiological efficiencies.  Let’s pick up on that conversation.  The theme? Invest your attention in the increasing efficiencies of your body.  The more I self-study (svadyaya) my body the more attuned I become to the efficiencies. Efficiency of action, efficiencies of thought, efficiencies of digestion, efficiencies of meditation or spiritual-mental-physical alignment, efficiencies of yoga. There is a conversation out there...

The body experiments. The body loves experiments. The body evolves via experimentation, feedback, learning, integration, experimentation feedback, learning, integration… ad infinitum. ABX - Always be Experimenting - is a principal of nature, a basic premise of Ayurvedic philosophy (see prajna paradha - or failure to ABX - as a root cause of disease). Lately, Silicon Valley's biz gurus and hackers illuminate the power of ABX via lean start up methodology, productivity hacking and bio hacking. (See Think big, test small, fail fast, learn always.) In children and smart adults experimentation looks like play. With good...

[Autumn=Rejuve] Why Fat Metabolism Matters

Many of you know I'm into intermittent fasting. Many of you also know the basic teachings of worshiping your agni - your digestive fire - your power of digestion. When we eat too frequently we generate more surface-level thinking. The Yogis of yore were never interested in surface level thinking. They craved depth with their souls. Chances are you also crave to live from a place of depth. When we eat less frequently we tap into our mental capacity. The difference shows up in our productivity. As in the Pareto Principle where 20% of our...
