As spring cleaning begins for many, one organization is going beyond and springing for a cleanse instead.
Taking place Tuesday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at The Hospice Of Windsor & Essex County (6038 Empress St.,) Spring Cleanse 2011 will send participants into a healthier direction this season. With guest speakers including Naturopathic Doctor Natasha Zajmalowski and Compassionate Cuisine chef/Yoga teacher Renee Trepanier, the workshop is designed to educate people about healthy choices.
“Last year was very successful with over 100 people,” said The Hospice’s Public Relations/Communications Coordinator, Kathy Vincent. “This year I think we may be at capacity now. [Zajmalowski] created the event with community wellness in mind.”
Attached to the 4th Annual Spring Cleanse week 2011 (May 1 to May 7,) those attending the workshop will also receive a kit that includes recipes, a comprehensive meal plan, shopping list, invitations to yoga and cooking classes during Spring Cleanse Week 2011, specials and discounts courtesy of their sponsors and up-to-date, research-based information – all designed to educate people for the main event.
“The cleanse itself involves a commitment of seven days of guided, healthy eating, designed to help the body detoxify,” said Zajmalowski in The Hospice’s press release. “This multifaceted event focuses on the promotion of healthy eating, environmental awareness, low impact exercise and civic pride.”
Businesses such as Natural Earth, Tecumseh Naturopathic Clinic, Blossoming Lotus Yoga, Sun’s Acupuncture and Kelani Fitness will also be on hand. Topics of the workshop include healthy beauty care and cleaning products, foods that inhibit or promote healthy detoxification and shortcuts on how to cleanse your body.
Those looking to take part in the workshop can do so by calling Linda at 519-251-2590 to register. Attendees aren’t required to take part in Spring Cleanse Week but are asked to bring a $5 donation to the workshop. Proceeds will benefit The Hospice.
