I feel like I need to be cleansed. I always eat super clean but soon I will be getting a procedure for my face, which requires me to have to stay inside for like a week. Usually during that time I get super depressed, so I am hoping that this will help!
I am going to start preparing myself for the cleanse, which will begin either the 22nd of July or the 23rd. I will just juice for a while and then maybe do smoothies as well if I feel I want to.
If anyone wants to join me it would be super fun!

Anahata Activation How To
Begin in a comfortable seated position in this case Padmasana (Lotus Pose) although Varjasana (Thunderbolt Pose) is a great option for beginners or those with difficultly sitting cross-legged.
Take a few deep mindful breaths, breathing all they way down into your belly lengthening your spine fully expanding your lungs. Gently float your ribcage up and away from your pelvis. More seasoned Yogis and Yoginis can also add contracting Mula Bandha (Root Energy Lock) as well as Uddiyana Bandha (Abdominal Energy Lock) for even deeper results.
On the next exhalation (Rechaka) bring your hands to Anahata Charkra (Heart Center) for Anjali Mudra (Prayer Pose)
- On the inhalation (Puraka) sweep your hands apart blossoming your chest forward, letting your shoulders melt down your back. Lift the chin up and away from the shoulders.
- On the exhalation sweep the hands forward until they are parallel reaching towards the front of your mat, curving the spine bringing your chin to your chest.
This asana can be done at slowly with long breath cycles or at a faster pace. Allow your body to speak to you and you will find the rhythm of your flow.
Caution this may cause activation of the Anahata Chakra which can lead to universal love and compassion for all beings and nature.
