How Would You Spend Your Perfect Day?

I asked myself that question a few months ago and came up with something wonderful. A one day juice cleanse combined with hot yoga and a trip to the spa. Well...I did it! I decided that doing this now would be the best way to start the new year.

I purchased a 1 day cleanse from Glow Juicery, throughout the whole process the owner Marnie was extremely helpful. She even gave me a guide as what to do before I start the cleanse and even gave a recipe for a salad mid-day.














Here is a list of the juices that I had and what's in them:

Ener-g Glow: Spinach + Cucumber + Pear + Celery + Chlorophyll
Citrus Glow: Orange + Lemon + Ginger + Coconut Water
After Glow: Spinach + Cucumber + Celery + Kale + Apple + Parsley
Vitamin G: Spinach + Cucumber + Carrot + Orange + Lemon + Ginger
Glow Boost: Spinach + Kale + Cucumber + Broccoli + Mint + Acai
Earth Glow: Apple + Beet + Carrot + Cucumber + Ginger

All of these juices were wonderful and in fact after the first one (Ener-gg Glow) I found myself craving more. It was definitely a treat for the body. I don't think that I would ever do a juice cleanse for a long period of time because I just don't think that its necessary, but I do think once in a while for a day or 2 is perfectly good and is a great way to get a boost of nutrition. These juices kept me satisfied throughout the day but they were so delicious I often wished that I had more! Marnie has created an excellent combination of juices. They are great for anyone looking to cleanse and especially for those looking for new ways to get nutritious foods.

I started off my day by going to a Moksha hot yoga class a great way to start the day. I followed that with a trip to the spa. This particular spa uses natural & organic products so it was a real treat. The spa itself is based on Middle Eastern and Indian Ayurveda traditions. It is probably one of my favorite spas because the spa itself is beautiful and I always get the best service. There I was treated to the Hammam / Gommage. The Hammam is a steam room that gradually heats up to 50 degrees Celsius while the Gommage is a highly effective way to to exfoliate the body.  I also had a 30 min. relaxation massage and a bio-organic cleansing facial. They used Comfort Zone skincare for the facial and it was very luxurious, my skin had never looked better. After my trip to the spa I went back to the yoga studio for a 90 minute hot yin class. If you haven't tried hot yin just before bed, you should, it is amazing. After all this I felt completely refreshed and even went to bed at 9:30. It was the perfect way to start the new year.
