The YogiDetox experience is one that involves complex emotions and challenges. While its rewards can be astounding, it is definitely not an easy journey. Grace Edison explains that before her detoxing experiences, she was not in touch with her emotions and their influence over her actions. Subconsciously experiencing an emotional trigger would lead to her eating comfort food without understanding why.

A detox from things we are addicted to can aid us in realizing why we actually seek these comforts in the first place.

Grace and Carly discuss that YogiDetox is not a one size fits all journey. When it comes to Grace’s experiences, she has tried to do it differently each time. Although we often want to go all in, these kind of challenging experiences are better handled when we customize the experience based on our needs. It is important to realize to ask for help and to accept that self-care can also include stress.

A detox experience is a challenge, and just like in yin yoga, we can reach a higher level of vitality and thrive if we put ourselves through a controlled amount of stress. The YogiDetox allows for an outstanding opportunity for us to reset and prepare for the future to come. For everyone out there, no matter the circumstance, there is always a wonderful reason to detox.

Show Highlights:

  • 3:05 - By cleansing, we make new space in our bodies. Often, if we splurge after the detox process we find we have become hyper-sensitive to what our bodies do not handle or process well.
  • 9:30 - Detoxing can help us reach a level of clarity about our feelings that we may normally have trouble finding. This clarity can help us identify things like why we are eating and what we are actually looking for?
  • 22:45 - Sometimes what we need to reach a higher level of thrive is to experience a controlled level of stress. Yin yoga encourages stressing our bodies in order to cleanse them, just as YogiDetox encourages some strict habits that can make us uncomfortable and cause initial stress.
