In “The Yoga-Body Cleanse”, Robin Westen guides readers through a life-changing transition, eliminating the unhealthy choices many make on a daily basis.
The book begins with why “cleaning up your act” is necessary, and what foods to avoid when cleansing your body. Ms. Westen also incorporates a survey into the book, allowing the reader to answer about fifty questions with Never, Occasionally and Frequently. At the end of the section, the reader tallies up their score and Westen provides them with an explanation of what their total means for their toxicity level.
The previous section builds up to the changing of the reader’s lifestyle which Westen begins with Ayurvedics. In short, these are principles that detox a person’s body and leave them feeling rejuvenated. She uses Ayurvedics along with the seven step program illustrated in the next chapter to prepare the reader for the “7-Day Yoga Body Cleanse”.
This “Cleanse” instructs the reader to diet intelligently, eating scrumptious foods with extremely beneficial vitamins and nutrients that strengthen the body and leave it satisfied. Using Yoga along with the dieting tools provided by Westen, the body will be relieved of toxins, endure less stress, and increase mental awareness and performance.
An excerpt from the book; “Partaking in the Yoga-Body Cleanse and renewing your precious self is not a one-time event….Once you’re aware of the toxicity and temptations, and you’ve gained the tools and commitment to change the way you live, a new and beautiful reality opens. Now you’re fully alive.” (Robin Westen)
