Dear Detox Lovers,

Yes, I know, ,it all sounds like good fun and it is! But the real question is whats really  in it for you? Why take time out of your life to come? We aim to immerse you in an environment that supports you, wherever you are on your journey to wellness. Accelerated growth, unlimited energy, superior health and great lasting friendships are just some of what we can give to you.  When we do an event we make sure you get 10 times the value out of it for your investment so that you go home feeling abundant on all levels (except your waistline!).

As well as detoxing, celebrating life, meeting new friends, experiencing communal living and generally having a blast, we lay out structures to ensure you set your intentions for a life of vibrant living. That you ground firmly in your body your “ I Am” presence. We ensure you have a plan of what you want to achieve in your life and we do it while smiling, moving and loving it all the way. We want just one thing, to give you the most inspirational help and guidance ever. What better way to end 2011 and head into 2012!

We will be focusing on going deep into our cellular memory through transformational breathwork, releasing old stored toxins and memories, whilst oxygenating the bodies cells. The body is over 70% oxygen, so focusing on the breath, hydration through living foods, juices and moving the body are the best forms of restoring equilibrium to your whole inner temple…Frank will be taking us through a conscious journey of Yoga, both restorative and rejuvenating to suit all levels and feed your cells from inside out. All in all it’s a weekend not to be missed!

Frank Arrigazzi has been teaching yoga since age 22 (professionally) and started practicing at the age of 8 when he was introduced to it by his father for the first time. Through the years he has developed a combination of “asthanga yoga, hatha yoga and Iyengar techniques” he has also used some of his inner understanding to create new exercises to release body tensions. Using diffferent techniques he helps people to reconnect with their breathing (letting go of past emotions and becoming more present) and also to bring awarness to their posture,(using Alexandre Technique guidelines for the posture).Frank has also studied from a very early age about different nutrition lifestyles and has a depth of understanding on how some of these approaches can work in our body – macrobiotic, veganism, vegetarianism, raw food, living foods etc., His main focus and passion is on ancient healing traditions and in the ways these cultures used to reconnect “mind, body, spirit, enviroment” and “make all one with everything”. Today Frank writes periodically some articles for blogs and magazines (Get Fresh, The Nutri Centre magazine) and is also writing a book about ancient secrets to longevity.
Frank can be messaged on to ask any questions with regards to our classes and you can check about his business Purple Balance Superfoods & yoga here:
