SOUL CLEANSE is pretty much the best time a person can have in their entire lives ever. This day of self-care and investigation is all about exploration + play + digging in + having fun + letting go + healing + being bolder.
If you're new to SOUL CLEANSE, here's the big idea!
1. Every few months, usually when the seasons change, we rock an urban retreat to take time, recoup and revive.
2. It's a full day of organic juice (care of THE JUCIST) + yoga practice + meditation + chanting + playing + silence + sound.
3. It's not competitive or pretentious. It's a totally welcoming and happy environment filled with supportive and rad people.
My capacity for crafting well-worded linear thoughts has been replaced lately with a desire for images, sounds and really - less structure. With that, I want you to let these images and the feelings they carry show you just how amazing SPRING AWAKENING - our second SOUL CLEANSE urban retreat - really was. -Lacey x

Yoga teacher and studio owner Amanda Noga of Yoga Alchemy taught a slow rhythmic + passive practice. This was all about taking it down a notch, breathing deeply and finding ease of movement and mind. It was mellow, juicy and serenity-inducing because Amanda is ah-mazing at what she does.

Um yes. This is us doing shooters. Lemony, gingery, spicy-as-heck shots of invigorating joy.
Hashtag NOM. Hashtag IsThatClaireBaker?
Phoebe Jones of To Yoke (she's the smily one, closest to the camera with the scarf that looks like a riding hood) taught our kick-off, let's get moving class. It was playful, sensual, challenging and fun. She's a star - everyone agreed.

Testing the boundaries of perception and comfort. I guided a blind-folded free movement session to tap into that flowing creative energy that bubbles from within. Yeah, it was a bit scary but with big challenges come great big rewards.
THE JUICIST spoiled us with the most extraordinary menu of nutritious + delish juices. This is what really makes this day extra freakin' special - freshly pressed, totally organic concoctions to aid in the process of self-discovery.
This man, with the halo of light around his head (which just naturally follows him wherever he goes), is Julian Silburn. He's the hero of the day, coming in at the end to clear away and even up all of the energy and to send everyone on a cosmic journey. He's from Sound Alchemy and we're just so blessed to have him on the SOUL CLEANSE team.
