New Year (R)evolution with Allison Modafferi

1/6 – 2/2 (dates, times, and locations vary)

Location: Be Yoga Dilworth

Sign Up Now!

Now in its 6th season, The New Year (R)evolution is a month-long program that includes a guided 21-day whole foods cleanse — as well as cooking classes with esteemed local chefs, a Q&A with an integrative doctor, and lessons from Yoga and Ayurveda — designed to support better diet/life balance, improve digestion, and cultivate clarity.
What makes this cleanse program different than so many others out there are:
You get to “design your own detox”. The goal is to cut out (or significantly reduce) consumption of processed foods and those known to contribute to inflammation, such as sugar, alcohol, caffeine, dairy, and gluten… but each cleanser chooses their own level of commitment, based on current life circumstances and goals.
The cleanse personalization goes further, as we determine our Ayurvedic constitutions, and learn about which foods aggravate and which help balance our digestion and any related conditions. (That includes sleep, energy level, focus, happiness… anything!)
There are both Local and Global options for the New Year (R)evolution, so if you live in Charlotte and have the time to participate in all of the awesome events, great… but if not, there’s still a fantastic, effective way to participate, via email, live videos and calls, and our private Facebook group. (We’ve had participants in Denver, London, and even Sydney!) The online support of the group is strong — and invaluable to the cleanse experience — whether local or across the globe.
The goal is sustainability. We “go extreme” for three weeks, to push our boundaries, challenge ourselves, learn, and grow. Then, we take what we love and practice integrating it into our lives going forward.
It’s not a “starve yourself” cleanse. We eat, and we eat well. We practice eating as a way to nurture ourselves.
It’s not only about food. We include the option for yoga, breathing, meditation, and Ayurvedic self-care practices. We examine the habits in our lives (and homes and relationships, etc.) that need to go, and work to create and incorporate healthier patterns. We try to anticipate where we might get derailed and make a plan for how to handle it. We’re going for longterm, sustainable change here, so we build a lifestyle around our evolution.
Here’s a great testimonial from one of our 3-time (r)evolutionaries:
“This program, NY(R), has changed my lifestyle. It is not a diet or a temporary cleanse, it is a game changer. You cannot deny how your body craves to be clean once you have experienced it. Give yourself the gift of feeling well. You won’t be disappointed. My entire family is reaping the benefits.” – Sarah

Join the (R)evolution… and this year, resolve to evolve!

NY(R) Live/Local Registration: $495 **only 30 spots**
Early Bird, by 12/21: $395 (save $100!)
This is the most effective (and fun) option, for you who are local and can carve out the time!

Early Bird, by 12/21: $195 (save $100!)

We came here to evolve, to go beyond ourselves, to not be so set in patterns that we neither learn nor change ~ the goal is growth at its most transformative and meaningful level ~ the goal is to meet each day wanting to shift, trying to learn, to know more, to always question, to evolve to a higher understanding, being and way. The goal of this lifetime is evolution.
Please join Brianna for an experience dedicated to the beauty and power of change, transition and growth. This two-hour workshop will incorporate Yoga, Dynamic Movement, Pranayama, Guided Meditation, Aromatherapy, and Sound Healing.

Limitlessness Through Binding – the 5s of Yoga with Mara Healy

Saturday 5/12 10:00am-4:30pm

Location: Be Yoga Carmel

Sign Up Now!

Yoga is a spiritual practice cleverly disguised as a physical workout. Do it for your body and you will get fit.
But do it for your mind, and your body automatically follows expanding the experience beyond your current physical capacity.
This session is about discovering the link between your physical and subtle body, and between your mind layers and the layers of the universe.
We will explore methods for binding the 5 senses and 5 main body parts in practice. You will understand the 5 binds of the mind, and how they relate to the five elements of the universe influencing 5 different states of awareness. By gaining deeper knowledge, you will create a safe harbor for physical practice and learn how to control the trajectory of your practice.

Investment: $75 for one and $135 for both the 3s of Yoga (in January) and the 5s of Yoga
