Seasonal Ayurveda & Yoga Cleanse

2 week online program starts Monday, May 15th, 2017


Seasonal Cleanse with Ayurveda & Yoga is a two week program using the science of Ayurveda alongside yoga to help you understand your body and support it to work at its best.

We've teamed up with Yoga specialist, Esther Ekhart, from https://www.ekhartyoga.com to bring you in-depth online lectures and yoga classes.

During week 1 you will learn how to identify your body type (dosha) and how to recognise signs of imbalance or build up of toxins in your system. We'll offer yoga classes especially for your digestion and the main organs associated with the doshas.

In week 2 you can choose to follow a gentle 5-day cleanse tailored to your dosha and body type with different options given for Spring and Autumn/ Fall. You'll also be given a choice of Dosha-specific yoga classes which you can repeat several times during the week.


You will be taken to the ekhart yoga website.

Who is this for?

This program is for anyone who would like to give their body a helping hand. However, it is not designed to replace medical advice. If you have a medical condition, especially relating to your digestion, you may choose to watch the talks and follow the yoga classes (if they are appropriate for you) but either adapt the cleanse or leave it out completely.

The cleanse is not about strict fasting, Ayurveda seeks to support your body not deny it. It is important to make sure you're cleansing for the right reason: helping your body do what it's supposed to do naturally.

Ayurvedic Healer - Montreal, QB

"Hi John! The lecture was fabulous! So interesting and informative!!! I really LOVED it! It was very useful info. I am running a weight loss workshop and was able to share so much with them from your teachings. I would love another call on detoxing the body.
Peace and light,

Medford, NJ

"Hi, John! I'm the studio manager of Heartland Yoga in Iowa City, Iowa. I listened to your teleseminar yesterday and found your teaching so clear and practical. I think many of our yoga students are ready to learn about how they can incorporate Ayurveda into their daily lives. Would you be interested in teaching a seminar at Heartland?"

Reiki - Iowa city, IA

"I love your classes, John! I find you very inspirational. You have a glowing passion and simple wisdom about you. I love that your business is called Joyful Belly. That goes back to that cosmic giggle thing. I feel like your smile and enthusiasm is like a joyful belly - the radiance makes others smile and laugh! Your ability to pinpoint reality and human nature is just amazing. True medicine, and I truly appreciate you sharing!"

Ayurvedic Healer - Asheville, NC

"John, I really enjoyed your cooking class and would be happy to attend more like it."

Asheville, NC

"Thank you, John, for another fabulous class!!! I'm learning so much right now and love how these changes are impacting my body, my experience. I very much appreciate all that you are sharing with us and look forward to learning more. The food was awesome and I feel great today!"

Asheville, NC

"thanks so much for the wonderful class last night! Learned a lot and it's good right now for me to hear some things again and again, it's sinking in. You have a very light and playful way of presenting and you're funny! Makes the material, especially in an evening class, very easy to digest (hey, nice pun, eh?)!"

Asheville, NC

"I wish to expand upon our conversation regarding you as a teacher.

You are a good instructor because you create an atmosphere where the student wishes to learn; this is the mark of a great teacher. Good teachers are born, not created. You add humor to your classes making it easier to remember some of the details. Your presentations are concise, to the point, and in a good order for better understanding. Going off the subject occasionally with a short story relieves the brain, a thing some instructors forget about.

You're a good person, John, and a good instructor; lord knows I've had enough of them along with professors. I expect details, explanations, and fullness of the subject matter and permission to speak up with questions. The idea of teaching is for people to understand to the point they no longer need you.

Be kind to yourself and
Know you are loved,

Nutritionist - Hot springs, NC

"John did a wonderful job in presenting completely new concepts to a varied group of students, answering questions patiently and clearly. I felt like a whole new world opened up for me, one in which my body can and will be healthy. It is attainable more easily than I initially believed. It brought back the knowledge of wholeness which can so easily slip further and further into the background with our busy lives and non-supportive patterns we find ourselves in. John's teachings about balance also reminded me that the responsibility to heal myself is in my own lap, no excuses!"

Asheville, NC

"John's passion for food, cooking, and assisting others is absolutely contagious and his kind, gentle way of teaching the principles of Ayurvedic cooking make it easy to fall in love with them. I personally was very inspired by the workshop and look forward to continuing this process of learning and getting well."

Asheville, NC

"Thank you so much for last night's class. The food was absolutely delicious and the wonderful chutney you made topped it off. Thank you for making and sharing that! Your teachings are so insightful and passionate, it is obvious that you walk your talk. I'd probably attend the same class again, it was a really, really good introduction overall."

Asheville, NC

"Yes! I throughly enjoyed the Ayurveda Workshop and look forward to more. The material was relevant and comprehensive to my goals. I found the material concrete and practical. I think you are skilled and informative regarding Ayurvedic teachings. I am thankful to have people like yourself commited to helping and teacing this fine medicine. I have already pasted the information to others to come to learn more. Thank you and we will meet again..."

Massage Therapist - Gloucester,

"Hey John! I just want to thank you again for the really awesome class yesterday. You really helped put things in a great perspective for me, and it's truly opened up a whole new level of healing and being for me. Thank you so much! You are very inspirational, motivating and grounding!"

Ayurvedic Healer - Asheville, NC

"You make ayurveda fun. It is easier to learn when fun. A big thank you. This is the sign of a good teacher. Thank you also for making me laugh."
