RESET THE SOUL
Join me for a 7-day Ayurvedic cleanse!
During #RESETTHESOUL you are going to learn all the tools you will need to help you regain a sense of balance. With a 50+ page workbook, online yoga lessons, and an Ayurvedic cleansing diet that you can tweak to support your unique mind-body type, you will develop healthy habits that you will benefit from for the rest of your life.
You will discover a magical Ayurvedic morning routine that works for you, experience the benefits of a daily yoga practice, explore your blockages through journalling exercises and improve your digestive system, which forms the foundation of good health according to Ayurveda.
WHO IT'S FOR
'Reset the Soul' is for anyone who feels like they could benefit from regaining a sense of balance by healing their digestive system, exploring their emotional blockages, and cultivating some new feel-good habits that have their roots in ancient Ayurvedic wisdom. New year, new you, am I right?!
HOW CAN IT HELP YOU?
It will kickstart your morning routine and help you start your day full of gratitude and with a clear mind! Through a special Ayurvedic cleansing diet, we will be giving the digestive system a chance to rest and recover, which will ultimately help you build a life-long foundation for good health, reframe your relationship with food, and better understand which foods work for your unique constitution.
Ayurveda as a natural reaction
Ayurveda is beginning to gain popularity in the West as people are beginning to reconnect with themselves on a deeper level. It is a natural reaction to the chaos of the modern world and the hectic lives we’ve created. If anything, 2020 has finally given us the opportunity to slow down, spend more time with our loved ones, and take better care of ourselves. We are beginning to understand how important it is to make time for our wellness, or else be forced to make time for illness. This is your opportunity to learn how to do that!

Supercharge your self-care routine
Self-care is a word that is being thrown around left, right and centre these days, but are we doing it right? And do we know the difference between self-care and self-maintenance? Lying in a bath tub with cucumbers on our eyes, and getting a pedicure feel great, but they’re not ways to heal or address the way we are feeling necessarily. A truly solid self-care routine recognises that we will always be human and go through hard times every now and then. Yet it will give us the tools to put ourselves back in a position where we feel in control, calm and full of peace. To me, self-care is the action you take to address your own –very human– experience, and feel it all so we can properly process our experiences.
Self-care practices include:
Breathwork & meditation
Chakra balancing yoga
As these techniques become part of your life, they will transform the way you see yourself, the world and the way you make your decisions.
The #RESETTHESOUL Ayurveda starter kit:
It has been an utter joy to put together this self-care kit with items that have been part of my routine for years! And I am so excited to share these tools with you during the programme. Your Reset the Soul kit includes:
Copper tongue scraper
Ayurvedic massage oil
Digestive tea (CCF tea)
Golden milk paste
Kitchari spice mix
Kitchari base ingredients
Good digestion = happy body AND mind!
Our mental and physical health is intricately tied to our digestive health. Do you often feel bloated, have skin issues, gain weight easily or get sick regularly? These are signs your digestive system is not functioning optimally, and could relate to the way you eat –even if those foods are generally considered healthy! During this programme, you will follow a wholesome plant-based Ayurvedic cleansing diet that is tweaked to support your unique individual mind-body type (your prakriti), to reset the digestive system and begin to find your way back to a sense of balance.
With so many conflicting ideas out there of what is regarded as healthy, it can be difficult to know where to begin and what to eat. Ayurveda is an ancient system of natural medicine that looks at our individual needs by determining our prakriti and vikriti (unique mind-body type and imbalances) and reveals a diet and lifestyle practices that are optimal to us as individuals. There is no such thing as a one-size fits all answer to maintaining good health!

The state of our chakras have an effect on our overall wellbeing.
My name is Eline and I had my first healing yoga experience in 2004 at the age of 14. Tension headaches were a familiar and normalised part of life (isn’t it strange that we accept these things so easily?), and I was conditioned to reach for the orange-flavoured children’s paracetamol to feel better. After an hour of moving and breathing in that very first yoga class, my headache was gone, as if by magic. Up until that point, yoga had always been something very mystical to me (cue a mental image of levitating fakirs), but at that point it became ACTUAL magic. To me, pharmaceuticals were no longer the only way to cure dis-ease.
This experience unknowingly set me off on the path of the healing arts –albeit with a detour in marine biology and conservation, but I believe this has only brought me closer to the natural world and the medicine that surrounds us. As a matter of fact, it brought me to Ayurveda which helped me heal my severe body acne that I had suffered from for over a decade. I can wear open-back tops in public now (those who know, know). And now I want to share the art of self healing through yoga and Ayurveda with YOU!
I will be guiding you every step of the way in a private Facebook group, and we will meet on the mat every single morning.
It’s a wonderful way to connect with some like-minded individuals, share experiences, and it's a safe space for you to ask any question you might have that is related to the programme.
The ultimate goal
My goal is to support you in finding balance and optimal health, using tools that have been tried and tested for millennia, so you can go out there and feel like your best self. Everyone has a special purpose in this life, and when you feel good, you can fulfil that purpose to your highest potential. In other words, FEEL GOOD → DO GOOD! ❤︎ Looking forward to sharing the journey.
Frequently asked questions
How long will the programme take me each day?
The short answer: 30 mins for your Ayurvedic morning routine (and this includes brushing your teeth + shower), 45 mins for breathwork/meditation/yoga, 15 mins for journalling, so 1 hour and 30 mins in total.
I work irregular hours (e.g. night shifts). Can I still join?
Absolutely! It is still recommended you follow the morning routine once you start your day (whenever that is). I will share the link to a pre-recorded class with you.
I'm in a different time zone. Can I still join?
Most definitely! A recorded version of the class will be available for you.
I don't have Facebook. Is it necessary to join the private support group?
It's completely optional! However, it might be a nice way to meet some of the other participants, share your experiences, and ask questions.
Is it vegan friendly?
Heck yes. India is one of the most vegan-friendly places on Earth. With that said, ghee (clarified butter) is a common ingredient in Ayurvedic cooking/India (where cows are considered sacred), but can be substituted for coconut oil, which is actually commonly used in Sri Lankan Ayurveda.
I don't like Indian food, can I still join?
The recipes are made to be relatively bland, as to not upset the digestive system. This also gives you the opportunity to 'cleanse' your palate for the week, and reduce your cravings for sugar and the need for overly salting your food. Give it a go, and I promise you'll feel amazing after!
Why do we eat the same food every day?
The programme consists of 3 wholesome plant-based sattvic meals each day. Sattvic means 'light' and 'pure', and will support your cleansing process. Our minds are constantly looking to be occupied, and we often succumb to it by 'feeding' it with sensory input: whether this means being on our phones 24/7, or eating because we're bored instead of to nourish and heal ourselves. Think of this week as a way to create stillness for the palate and become more mindful about the way we eat.
