As 2016 winds down, it's time to focus on the holiday season and make new plans for the year ahead.

But before you get stuck in holiday mode, why not enjoy a pre-holiday detox, which will help increase your energy, strength and tone, ignite your personal power and creativity, establish better eating habits and help you feel calm, focused and happy!

This is a great opportunity to commence the festive and holiday season stress-free and give your mind and body the care and attention it needs.

Presented by Dynamic Wellness, the upcoming Summer Cleanse program will help you rest, relax, rejuvenate in the convenient and central location of JUMA, 9 Windmill St, Tarragindi (Brisbane Southside).

Over the 7 days, you will enjoy gentle morning yoga, wholefood breakfasts, follow easy eating guidelines and take home a lunch box each day. The whole program will be presented in a supportive group environment and participants will experience a range of benefits, including more energy and clarity, increased flexibility and a stronger body, glowing skin, a sense of lightness and weight loss (where appropriate) and a desire to keep looking after oneself.

"It was a great experience. I loved going, the yoga and the food. I lost 3 kg and feel really good...Looking forward to another cleanse" Olivera, 43

"...I learned a lot about wholefoods and experienced a tummy and taste transformation!" Shan, 39

"I've lost over 4kg and 5cm around my waist during the last cleanse with Mandakini, and managed to maintain most of these results since" Cathy 33

This is a great way to kickstart your new exercise regime or find the inspiration to continue and improve on what you are currently working on.

The program is facilitated by Mandakini Foux, a Wellness and Nutrition consultant with a Diploma in Ryoho Yoga (Japanese), Zen Shiatsu and Oriental therapy. Mandakini has over 23 years teaching experience, specialising in Therapeutic Yoga, Food as Medicine and Real Food supplementation.

"Mandakini has a gentle and supportive style, encouraging healing, integrity and fun. She remains aware of the strength and weaknesses of each individual" Petra, student, 30

Mandakini notes that in the oriental system, Summer is governed by the Fire Element - Heart and Small Intestines meridians / energy channels (also, Triple Heather and Heart Constrictor). When these organs are functioning optimally, we feel connected to ourselves as well as to the environment around us. We also feel joyful, happy and content (without the need for alcohol and sugar).

The fire element is also in charge of the power of digestion, our physical strength and our creativity. By cleansing in November, we are preparing to take better care of our bodies during the holiday season and minimise the damage.

The program lasts for 7 days and allows participants to attend work and look after their family. On weekdays participants meet in the morning for yoga and breakfast and receive a lunchbox, filled with nourishing wholefoods that will support the cleansing process.

During the cleanse, participants can eliminate foods and habits that do not support the process and replace them with better habits. To assist with this process, easy to follow guidelines will be provided. Participants can also enjoy complimentary Zumba classes during this time.

Upon completion of the program, participants will slowly return to normal healthy eating and will be supported every step the way.

With Summer around the corner and the temptation to indulge, now is the time to fan the internal fire within!
