Hi dear ones! Happy New Year! As many of us begin to reset, rebalance & rejuvenate, I wanted to share how I will be spending my first few weeks of January…
I am really excited to be joining Claire Ragozzino of VIDYA & Adena Rose Ayurveda for a 14 Day Holistic Cleanse. I absolutely love ayurveda & the sense of peace & harmony that it can create in body, mind, & spirit when one follows it’s principals. If you are unfamiliar with Ayurveda here is the a brief explanation…
Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, is a holistic approach to health that is designed to help people live long, healthy, & well balanced lives. The term “Ayurveda” is taken from the Sanskrit words “ayus,” meaning “life,” & “veda,” meaning “knowledge.” It has been practiced in India for at least 5,000 years & has recently become popular in Western cultures. The basic principle of Ayurveda is to prevent & treat illness by maintaining balance in the body, mind, & consciousness through proper drinking, diet, and lifestyle, as well as herbal remedies.

I was first introduced to Ayurveda many years ago when I worked for Aveda, which was a central principal in the creation of the brand. I was intrigued, but my interest slowly faded (I was young & foolish). Many years later I rediscovered Ayurveda when I was going through a particularly challenging time in my life & I was finally ready to embrace it. For the past year I joined VedaWise’s seasonal cleanses & with each one felt more grounded, vibrant & energized. But come the holiday season & all the hustle, bustle & merriment it entails, & I have found myself completely out of balance. A return to Ayurveda is in strong order!
While researching Ayurvedic recipes earlier this year I discovered VIDYA & was instantly drawn to Claire Ragozzino’s food philosophy, recipes, & beautiful aesthetic. As much as I have enjoyed the previous cleanses, I am ready to branch out & try something new & this New Year’s Renewal Holistic Cleanse is my perfect opportunity.
