Since Fall 2010, to better support my yoga practice, I have been doing fall and spring cleanses with the same practitioner. This year, at the prompting of an adventurous yoga friend, I decided to work with a different practitioner. (The buddy system prevails.) To the extent that we are what we eat, I think of this like any other sādhanā, or "practice." It's something that has been worked into the seasonal observances of many traditional cultures.
It's official, I'm signed up for a Fall Cleanse. For the past three years, (six seasons) I have been doing a cleanse with Cate Stillman. This year, I've decided to strike off in an adventurous new direction, getting a new perspective. It's like vacationing in the mountains instead of at the seashore. Wish me luck and ask me questions!
