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...

Signs You Should Detox

I'm often asked, "How do I know if I should detox?" If you were raising on Corn Flakes and cow's milk from the grocery store, chances are your parents didn't instigate seasonal detoxing for the household. Chances are detox is not a bi-annual ritual for you. If you do detox seasonally or annually, you are answering the question yourself. You detox when you're over your current state of affairs. Perhaps you detox to show the door to the extra 5 lbs., or your eyes are getting itchy with allergies, or...

[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...

10 Ayurveda Tips for Intermittent Fasting

I feel like I’m single woman-ly driving SEO for Intermittent Fasting + Ayurveda. Which is cool. I’m digging intermittent fasting and this ongoing experiment I’m doing to increase my mental capacity. I’ve dropped a pant size but haven’t lost any muscle or strength, which is groovy. Not that the pant size matters—it’s more of the experience of deep cellular integrity and efficiency that I’m after. Because why not feel amazing, right? For those who are curious about all this, watch the video.

Digestives, Apples, + One pot meals

We nursed an old apple tree back to life. When we moved to 507 N. Hwy 33 in Tetonia, ID we had a withered gnarly severely old dehydrated apple tree. We watered it for a few years before it sprouted leaves again. Then, a few years later it grew an apple. This year we harvested a few brimming bags. She is back! Anyone with an apple tree knows it provides an insane amount of fruit. Apple is high in pectin - which is a soothing bulk laxative. In Autumn, if you’re...

Train your Eye to Spot Thrive

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post on my love affair with chokecherries. Everywhere I turn I see superfoods. I feel hyper-nourished, and more than deeply abundant. It wasn’t always so with me. I used to look for my savior and salvation in an herbal concoction. I used to spend money on supplements. I can pick a pound of chokecherries in about 15 minutes. Most of my neighbors and friends here in the Tetons are surrounded by chokecherries and other superfoods that haven’t yet landed in the media as...

Locavore approach to At Home Retreat

Each Autumn I press my reset button. When you get deeper into seasonal rhythms you notice there are junctures of time to empty your own bucket of whatever imbalances have accumulated since your last “empty the bucket period.” For me, the last empty the bucket period was in April. Now it's six months later. My body knows what time it is. My mind wants a timeout too. And my spirit is begging for more time on the cushion. You see time, and timing are everything. When we miss these windows of...
