The 'new normal' is hardly normal. We are  living in a period filled with unprecedented challenges. It's clear these challenges will persist well into next year.

How are you feeling?

Extended periods of high or low grade stress can take a toll on one's body and mind.  It's more important than ever to invest in your health and mental well-being.

We've developed a week-long program to help re-calibrate your body, mind and spirit.

It's important that we all remain resilient in the times ahead. Our Resiliency Bootcamp can help you not only survive, but thrive...

HOW It works

This program draws upon the Samana+ body and mind programs.

 

At the core is our mindfulness and meditation program - designed for thriving in 2020 and beyond.

Building from the mindfulness progra are custom designed Yoga sequences for agility and health. 

For those who want to go deeper, we are offering a version of our popular Urban Reset cleanse as well. This is ideal if you have persistent physical conditions are well. (Poor digestion, pain, etc.)

MIND

MINDFULNESS FOR RESILIENCY

You'll learn a meditation framework you can use to manage everyday (and not so everyday) stress. 

 

The first session will be a workshop on how the brain, body and mind influence stress. We'll explore the latest in neuroscience while drawing upon time-tested breathing and visualization techniques. You'll learn how you can tame your 'lizard brain'.

 

Each daily session will build upon the previous days.  

There will be ample time for practice and discussion.

YOGA NIDRA

At the end of the Bootcamp you'll get to practice your new meditation toolkit with a Yoga Nidra session. Yoga Nidra is a powerful tool for immediate relaxation and long-term balance.  You will actively participate in this session. Accompanying the Yoga Nidra will be sound healing. 

BODY

YOGA FOR RESILIENCY

Learn a simple, yet powerful sequence to build core strength. No yoga experience necessary. 

 

The sequence is custom designed for this program and the times we live in.

URBAN RESET CLEANSE (OPTIONAL)

A Seven Day Ayurvedic Mono-Diet and Herb Supported Cleanse. You get to eat delicious, nourishing meals designed to reset your digestive process.

TESTIMONIALS

 We are happy to have helped hundreds of people with our programs.  Results vary by individual.  Here are a few examples:   

1QmmGfgP.jpeg

For the past 15 year I have been regulary hit with waves of severe allergies. Two months before my wedding I had the worst allergy attack of my life during a site visit at our outdoor location...

Fortunately I found the Urban Reset. I am so happy to report that my allergies COMPLETELY disappeared. After 15 years I can finally  breathe though my nose again!

The Reset has changed my life. Not only did I immediately feel healthier and clearer, but I also learned to understand my digestion what my body needs to stay in balance.  The Reset Diet is something I will turn to for the rest of my life. I don't always eat as well I should, but at least now I know how to quickly get back on track.

I kicked caffeine nearly two years ago and don't miss it at all. People are often shocked by this because they can't imagine living without it. I didn't think I could (or should) either until I participated in the Urban Reset.  I had no idea how caffeine impacted me - now I'm grateful for no jitters and even more energy.

Frequently asked questions

Is the program online only?


Yes, the program is online. You can participate from anywhere. We'll be using zoom for live sessions and have recordings available to participatns.




I love that you have daily schedule! What if I need to miss a session?


We understand that life happens (especially these days!) - so we will record our sessions for you to view later in day/week. However we do recomend attending the the live session so we can answer questions and help you refine your practice in realtime.




I'm not sure about the Urban Reset cleanse part. Why should I be cleansing too?


When we created this Bootcamp, we realized that many people are also suffering from physical issues that are related to stress, fires, allergies, etc. Also, the fall is the start of flue season and possible increase in COVID cases - so it is prudent to help build your immunity though a proven Ayurvedic diet and herbs. Our Urban Reset recalibrates the body so both your mind/body can work as a fine-tuned machine. To learn more about the Reset click on the learn more button.




I don't have Yoga and/or Meditation experience. Can I still participate?


Yes! This course is designed for all levels!
