They are fun and wonderful

I took part in the wellness residential 10 Day Cleanse in Fall of 2009. I had been looking for a Kundalini yoga retreat online and found The Cleanse of Sante Fe. I came to Espanola with an open mind, excited to do as much Kundalini as possible and curious about The Cleanse experience. I would recommend this adventure to anyone who wants to get their relationship with their body back. Ten days of yoga, amazing food, and time for reflection and you understand what your body needs better then you probably ever have. Deva and Kartar run the program with

This is a very sweet experience

I signed up for a residential program in November 2009 to quit smoking and get my stress level under control. I achieved both but discovered much more. Cleanse leaders Deva and Dr. Kartar Khalsa are amazing. They work with you on a lot of levels to ferret out what’s underneath your issues and bring that into the light. They heal with a blend of amazing whole foods and supplements, acupuncture and other body treatments, Kundalini yoga, Ayurveda and personal counseling. This is a very sweet, complete experience I would recommend to anyone! ~Lynne Eppel, Publisher/Editor Edible Front Range Magazine

I took 20 years off my life

I have never been what you call overweight, just always carried around extra weight all over. I could hide it mostly with clothes and most people would say I look fine. I knew I had this layer of body fat that I could not get rid of, no matter what I did. I just could not slim down to what I believe my body shape should be. The Cleanse made it happen, I am finally exactly where I believe I should be and I feel amazing. For the first time in my adult life I am happy with my body

I highly recommend this program to anyone

Thank you so much for your great support during my 10 day cleanse in Santa Fe. I’ve been cleansing on my own once per year over the past 20 years, however it never was as effective as your residential program. Thank you for opening your world and sharing your knowledge with me. Focusing on my health and wellbeing 100%, made me respect my body and mind once again. It woke up my inner voice that knows exactly what is good for me. I’m rejuvenated and you inspired me to keep walking the healthy path. I highly recommend this program to

I am loving myself more

The Cleanse is one of the best gifts that I have ever given myself. I am renewed physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Nurturing my body in this gentle and loving way taught me to slow down and be my authentic self. Deva’s food, along with her huge heart and gentleness, is absolutely delicious and is quickly becoming some family favorites in our kitchen. I am loving myself more and glowing from the inside out. ~Christina Porter, Designer, San Francisco, 2011

Creative Energy

I am a better person

I have been meaning to contact you ever since I graduated from Acupuncture School. I am currently practicing in New York City. I would never have even started on this path of becoming a healer if I had not spent those 41 days with the both of you back in 2000. Thank you so much for that experience. I am a better person now because of the issues I resolved and changes I went through under your care. I still practice Kundalini Yoga regularly, a practice I would rather not do without. ~AvH, New York

There is light and substance

My story as an addict and the events leading up to my years of using are not unusual. My release from the seemingly unrelenting grip and all too deep hook of heroin addiction (as well as a litany of other drugs) is pretty remarkable from the conventional perspective of treatments centers and the 12 step programs. To me, however, it was not totally miraculous, all though the process was powerful enough to be called a miracle. I have been clean now for nearly two years, and have had an accelerated recovery based primarily on my new habits and how they

“Working with Deva to learn Ayurveda has been so amazing! I know so much more now about myself, my body, my mind, and the exact steps I need to take to stay in prime health. It was incredible how she seemed to know additional problems that were bothering me. She identified them before I could and helped me learn how to balance it all. I’ve learned so many Ayurvedic practices that I will use for the rest of my life to help me focus on health, wellness and youthful living. I felt so great after doing the Qwik-Drop 7 Day

Awareness “Through Skype consultations with Deva, I’m cultivating greater awareness in many areas of my life which is helping me to find more balance and therefore more peace. I’m constantly inspired and supported by Deva’s knowledge, wisdom, creativity and compassion and would recommend anyone who’d like to discover more to get in touch with her.”   ~Jenn Kidd, Actress, England, 2013
