• understand origins of yoga and the main tools – asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing), meditation, concentration and relaxation

• acid / alkalising foods – including a PH test to see where your body is on the ph scale
Spring clean your mind and body, give it a break from rich and complex foods by cleansing or detoxing for a short period of time. Cleansing means paring down your food to just simple fruits and vegetables, lots of water and perhaps whole grains. With less energy geared toward digestion, more energy is available to clear your body and mind.
Cleansing and detoxing can sharpen your concentration, help you gain insight and promote spiritual awareness. It can also bring improved immune function and better digestion.
While you’re cleaning out your body and home, don’t forget to spring-clean your heart! Throw away negative thoughts and habits you’ve been harbouring that no longer serve you. A clean, open heart will allow you to receive all the good that awaits you each and every day.
If your heart and mind are cluttered, there is no room for life’s gifts and surprises to enter.
