I is called "Getting Fit Inside and
Out," a program developed by
Mary Beckerman (aka Chef Mary
B), a raw-food specialist, and Gail
Mondry, a master yoga instructor.
The program addresses the core of
human health — which is to cleanse
the body, mind and spirit. This cleans-
ing program is an ideal way to create
metabolic balance in our lives, includ-
ing the choices we make on the foods
we choose to eat, how we handle stress
and how we can implement changes to
clear addictions.
The program

from work to
relax, and it is
essential to take a break from food to
detox. Almost everyone needs to rest
his or her body from time to time.
Some of us need to cleanse more

education director and owner of
Equilibrium, participated.
"I want to break my addiction to
caffeine and sugar," said Hodari.
Betsy Appleman, another partici-
pant, said, "I'm at a point in my life
where I was willing to try a detox
cleansing, for purely health reasons

and curiosity. I am pleasantly sur-
prised that I am enjoying the juices."
For many, it is a chance to detox
their bodies and learn why it is an
essential and natural aspect of life.
Fresh organic juices are served at each
cleansing class; recipes are provided
for smoothies and drinks for juicing
at home.
When combined with yoga, medita-
tion and breathing tips, the program
offers an opportunity to feel better in a
very short time. Li
