HOT YOGA, COMMUNITY + KITCHARI


With holiday gluttony in our recent pasts, January is a perfect time of year to cleanse and renew - to warm up, sweat out the lingering toxins and replenish our bodies with goodness.

Prairie Yogi's BODY - MIND - SOUL Cleansing Workshop at Stafford Street Hot Yoga, was a perfect way to detoxify from the holiday overload and brought another fantastic yoga event to the prairies.

The sold out event hosted twenty yoginis for a 90 minute Bikram style hot yoga class followed by an Ayurvedic demonstration by Kalee Mund (we learned how to make Ghee!) and a community meal of cleansing Kichari and tea with sweet stuffed dates for dessert.

If you missed it, you can still make your own cleansing Kitchari at home with Kalee's recipe card below- you can add whatever veggies you like (the one's you got delivered in your Fresh Option box this week will work nicely) to add more nutrients to this cleansing curry base.

Due to popular demand from our participants, we have also included the recipe for yummy saffron and maple yogurt stuffed organic dates - a simple crowd pleaser!
