We are thrilled and honored to offer this program to bring together community, support one another, and embark on a new way of life, in touch with our inner voices that naturally guide us toward well-being.

KOSA's hosted Fall Community Cleanse & Journey Inward

If you have ever considered starting new practices or exploring an Ayurvedic lifestyle, a seasonal detox is a way to go deeper, in a short period of time, with profound results in your body and mind.

When: Cleanse 9/25-10/15; Panchakarma 9/25-10/7

Where: KOSA and/or your home

What: 3-day detox, 7-10-day detox, or 14-day Panchakarma

Why Cleanse?

This gentle process brings in a fresh focus on self-care, improved health, and a commitment to long-term well-being. A seasonal practice allows rest, purification, and drawing out of toxins to avoid accumulation. The digestive system is the origin of most disease, and by cleansing and then balancing your microbiome, you create a healthier overall functioning of the body and mind.

Āyurveda calls the transition between two seasons, Ritu Sandhi, or ‘the place where seasons meet’ – and offers specific healing practices and rituals to help prepare for the change, already in the air.

The transition of Summer to Fall (Vata season) is a natural one. Like the season, our bodies are becoming more cold, dry, mobile, and rough - leading to dry skin and hair, dry digestion and bloating, anxiety, disturbed sleep, lack of focus. Learn more about Vata season practices here.

A seasonal practice allows rest, purification, and drawing out of toxins. The digestive system is the origin of most disease, and by cleansing and then balancing your microbiome, you create a healthier overall functioning of the body and mind.

Cleanses that focus on juices and raw foods, from an Ayurvedic perspective, can stress the nervous system, dampen your agni (digestive fire), and aggravate your vata (air element). Therefore, we focus on nourishing all three doshas, balancing, removing impurities, and stoking your agni with easily digested, vegetarian cooked meals.

Benefits of any of our detox options can include:

  • Improved immunity
  • Detoxification
  • Decreased stress
  • Glowing skin
  • Restored digestive fire
  • Lightness in the body
  • Clearer mind

10-Day Personalized Cleanse

SEPTEMBER 25-OCTOBER 15, 2023 (2 cohorts at this time)

We have created a simple and customized cleanse that is perfect for those of you who want a fully supported in-person experience.

In Ayurveda, there is no one-size therapy, and cleanses need careful consideration of your unique health needs and conditions. That is why we offer consultations and direct communication with your health counselor throughout the process. In addition, we have the physical healing spaces of Kosa to hold and nourish you.

This program allows for greater awareness of how foods and behaviors affect us as we gently eliminate them from our diets and routines and replace them with nourishing and balancing elements.

With this program you may find your body lighter, mind clearer, and more energetic throughout.

This is a nourishing and yummy cleanse! The diet consist of delicious, clean, vegetarian eating and adopting new Ayurvedic practices.

In addition, you will go through an OPTIONAL process called oleation. This involves loosening toxins through consumption of ghee which absorbs and transports them through the digestive tract. Then, castor oil is taken in order to fully eliminate the impurities from the tissues.

The 10-day Cleanse includes:

  • Two consults with our certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor to create and guide you through your customized Cleanse Plan (Can be Virtual) ($200 value)
  • Two - 1 hour personal retreats at KOSA, with time and space to go inward and process your self-care commitment. Includes use of hot stone sauna and hydrotherapy steam room, sanctuary lounge, meditation space, and teas ($150 value)
  • Ayurvedic cookbook with the basics of Ayurveda and recipes you can follow for your specific need. This year, we are happy to offer Divya Alter's "Joy of Balance". ($40 value)
  • Care Package including khichdi kit, ghee, castor oil
  • Daily cleanse guide including a chart with simple instructions for your daily routine, diet and general cleanse guidelines
  • Three - videos (yoga, breathwork, and meditation) to support your process
  • Cohort gatherings including welcome session and mid-cleanse check-in (may be virtual or in-person depending on cohort)
  • WhatsApp Group to share questions and celebrate successes with your cohort
  • email Support from your counselor and the KOSA team, including daily emails

Panchakarma is the Ayurveda time honored ritual of detoxification and nourishing our mind, body, and spirit. Specifically, it is the action of bringing balance back to the doshas, removing ama (toxins), correcting digestion, ensuring proper elimination, and restoring the proper flow of prana (energy) throughout.

It is recommended to use Panchakarma as a way to prepare and move through the transition at the equinox of the spring and fall season. Performed in three phases, there is a preparatory phase, a detoxification phase, and a rejuvenation phase.

  • Purvakarma (5 days minimum): Prepare your digestion through diet, herbs, and self care to soften toxins, bind and prepare for release of excess doshas and toxins.
  • Pradhanakarma (3-4 days): Physical actions of elimination of the excess doshas and toxins. We will focus on the first three.
    • Virechana - rapid release of the bowels with herbs and oils.
    • Nasya - cleansing the sinuses and mind with herbal oils to the nose.
    • Basti - cleansing and nourishing the colon with herbal oils and teas through the rectum.
    • Raktamoksha - purification of the blood through use of leeches. This is still practice in India, but not in the U.S. Herbs are used to purify the blood.
    • Vamana - therapeutic vomiting to reduce the stagnation and wetness in the chest and stomach. This is still practiced in India, but not in the U.S. Herbs and practices are still used to remove.
  • Pashtakarma (10-14 days): Now that the purification and removal of excess doshas and toxins is complete, it is important to rejuvenate and and rebuild with intention.
