First getting here I was frazzled, rushing, and super tense. Work and life have definitely beat me up. However, after spending these last couple days here I am more relaxed and ready to navigate my peace throughout my life. Thank you. — Megan Highsmith

I began reading about health and nutrition in the 1970s. I met a vegetarian group on campus and they introduced me to fasting. This workshop taught me that my understanding and appreciation for this topic is ongoing. Yoga for Detox = Knowledge is power! — Vivian Newman

After this detox program, I feel lighter and more open than I can remember feeling in a long time. This will definitely help me to reboot my home practice. Thank you for helping me recharge my battery. — April Scripps
