FAQ's about the Yogidetox with Cate Stillman
Is the Yogidetox right for you?
You want a detox that accelerates your yoga.
The current pace of life is faster than it’s ever been. We need specific skills and habits to feel great. Chances are, if you don’t have these habits you feel less than vibrant. If you’re not leaning into your edge of vibrant health, chances are, you could have more energy and healthier cravings than you currently experience. You might even be able to shift the way you age and enable all of your body parts to last longer and feel better.

Feedback from Yogidetox Members
“We have truly transformed the way my husband eats (he lost 20+ lbs and his migraines) and I'm eating better as well (although it was a short hop for me). I wanted to let you know that I blogged about the experience. Yeah!”
Sally Ann F. Phillips
“Cate’s passion for the nexus of Ayurveda, Anusara Yoga, and Living Foods movement made this cleanse a powerful mind-body-spirit experience. Her ten years of experience with leading cleanses was obvious in the breadth of resources provided and her support for every individual's unique cleansing path. Not to mention, I feel great! I lost 15 lbs!.” Bridget Lyons, Yoga Instructor and studio owner"I did yoga every morning and I felt that best I ever have! Thank you so much for your guidance during the detox- I will be back for more!” Theresa L.
“Cate-I can’t believe all the changes I have seen in the past three weeks!" Mary, yoga teacher, New Zealand
"I was almost at my breaking point. I was extremely overweight (about 100 pounds), depressed, tired all the time, acne prone, lethargic and caffeine and sugar addicted. I embraced the cleanse and immediately began making changes.
"The first week, I was able to kick the caffeine and refined sugar habit. I started getting up earlier and making green smoothies and doing yoga in the morning."
"I have lost a total of 14 pounds so far and I have more so much more energy. I am starting to feel at home in my body, instead of fighting against it and putting it down."
"I think about what I am putting in my mouth, instead of just reaching for food when I am bored or feeling strong emotions. I feel like this is something I will be able to maintain coming out of the cleanse. Now that caffeine and sugar don’t have the hold on me they did before."
"I am craving things that are good for my body. My thinking is clearer and I feel so much more emotionally balanced. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to reconnect with myself!” Amy H."I feel so light and full of energy eating my smoothies! I can't tell you how much gratitude I have for all that you have offered me."
Cherie, PA yoga student
“First I would like to thank you for the Yogi Detox. It’s a really great program and I am glad I took the decision to join. I doubt that I would have made it this far without any support.”
M. Hanson, France“Other programs focus on “what” to eat or “what” to do (eat vegetarian/macro/vegan/paleo/mono/etc). Cate also teaches you “when” to eat, sleep, exercise and work in order to optimize your health. The extent of her knowledge is so vast and so very deep." Lynne Paterson- Yoga Teacher Trainer
"Another aspect of this course that I love, is Cate’s focus on coaching us to accumulate personal experience, not just intellectual knowledge. As I make the recommended changes, I feel more alive. I have more energy to pursue my dreams. I have more consistent energy levels throughout the day. I am exploring my mind-body complex in a much deeper way.”
Lynne Paterson- Yoga Teacher Trainer
"My experience of the Yogidetox with Cate Stillman, led to an amazing break- through. I have been troubled with hot flashes for the past 6 years... and they are gone. I was completely blown away. The other good news is that I have dropped 8 pounds without any effort at all.”

Yogidetox Frequently Asked Questions
The full range of beginning yoga students through advanced yoga teachers are all welcome. I will lead you deeper into your intuition, your body, and your kitchen. The Autumn Yogidetox has 2 options: Beginners and Advanced. The Beginners course suits those who have never cleansed before. The Advanced is geared to those who have at least one 5+ day detox experience under their belt. Many will have much more than that.
There are 5 different cleanses to choose from that vary from liquids to heavier whole foods.
You will receive an online recipe book when you sign up.
There are plenty of options, ideas, and choices. It's not a one-size fit's all experience.
I recommend that you use only a few of the recipes and simplify your food choices during the cleanse. Please experiment and create new recipes using your own combinations of the cleanse foods.
Will the foods during the cleanse cost a lot of money?
Most people save money during the cleanse, because the cost of whole foods is generally less than that of pre-packaged foods. Those choosing the juice fast may spend considerably more, due to the large quantities of fresh vegetables required. You can get everything locally, with an option to mail order some herbs for me. I also encourage harvesting wild foods including unsprayed dandelion greens. I generally consume free local greens when I cleanse.
Do I need a juicer to participate?
You don’t need a juicer, but juicing is a great option. Try borrowing a juicer from a friend, and see if you like it. Juicers I recommend for purchase are the Breville Juice fountain ($100-200) or the Omega juicers ($300+).
I use a blender more than a juicer when I detox. I like the Vitamix.
What foods does the cleanse focus on or eliminate?
The Yogidetox focuses on adding in nutrients, enzymes and prana through green vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds primarily. Your intuition will become awakened through the course, refining your focus and steering you towards these foods in the right quantity and diversity for your constitution.
The Yogidetox is unique to each member, depending on your experience and your goals. The course awakens the part of yourself that knows better (smart self or higher self). You naturally end up eliminating that which is no longer serving you or keeping you stuck in old patterns. Frequently, connections are made between mental patterns, emotional patterns and cravings.
The Yogidetox attunes you to seasonal eating so as you emerge, you crave that which is seasonal, local, and good for your constitution. You peel the layers (physical, mental, emotional) away and awaken to more vitality on all levels. The desire to keep your body clear and open is natural.
What will I eat?
It depends. The Yogidetox is not only about food, it’s much more about awakening your intuition to evolve your food body. For someone who is currently eating processed foods, the Yogidetox will be a transition from processed foods (foods in boxes, cartons, frozen, or canned) to meals including whole foods such as vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, sprouts and whole cooked grains.
For those who regularly eat a whole foods diet, the cleanse might incorporate more living foods. Living foods are not heated above 115 degrees, the temperature at which enzymes die. An example of a living foods daily menu might include a green smoothie for breakfast, a salad at lunch, and a raw soup for dinner. A living foods diet incorporates leafy greens or straight chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is what makes leafy greens green and provides healthy oxygenation and detoxification.
The Yogidetox for those already eating a living foods diet would include a juice fast for 7-14 days. Juice fasts help bodies to refine and adjust to the next season. For example, transitioning from fall into winter.
Many of us incorporate a mix of foods in our diets and so the cleanse will reflect that. For all of us, the cleanse is a time to refine or refresh our kitchens, our kitchen practices or sadhana, and our routines around our food body.
What else is the cleanse about if it’s not just about food?
In addition to mindful and intuitive eating, the cleanse involves taking retreat in your home and in your daily life. Many people wish they could stop working or have fewer of their normal responsibilities during the cleanse. The Yogidetox views our daily lives and work lives as gifts. Learning to retreat within the busy-ness of life and the change of seasons will instill a life-changing upgrade for the season to come and your entire lifetime! This is achieved through incorporating daily self-care techniques that detoxify the body and nourish and nurture the soul. These skills will last and enhance for a lifetime.
Is this a raw foods cleanse?
It can be if that is what you are looking for. If it's not what you're looking for - then you'll fit into the category of most of the people in the Yogidetox. If your intuition is leading your body into a raw foods cleanse, then your cleanse foods will be a mix of vegetable juices, green smoothies, green juices, raw salads, fruits, and sprouts. Pre-cleanse and post-cleanse weeks may also include some nuts and seeds, particularly chia and flax seeds. Other options include a traditional Ayurvedic kitchari (rice and mung bean stew) cleanse with additional recipes for cooked foods during the pre- and post-cleanse weeks.
What can I expect to eat on the typical day?
The cleanse is different for each person. Some will do a mix of juicing and fasting. Others will eat a simple whole foods diet of green, root, and shoot salads, nori wraps, smoothies, and teas.
Is it difficult to cleanse?
Not if you have the time to take great care of yourself. If you're already juggling a lot and you drastically change your diet - it can be very difficult. Especially if you are an emotional eater.
It's crucial to take extra time during a detox or cleanse to take great care of yourself.
I'll encourage you to follow your intuition and point your awareness into self-care and nourishing practices that will enhance and support the food aspect of the cleanse.
Your natural desire to choose the right foods and recipes will get stronger as you enter the cleanse. Also, rely on the support of weekly calls, the online forum, and assistance from myself and the Yogidetox mentors. The main purpose of this cleanse is to simply awaken your intuition regarding self-care, food, and daily routines so that you can raise the consciousness of the cells of your body to the next level of your potential.
Is everyone doing the same cleanse?
No, see above.
Is yoga part of the cleanse?
Yes. You get access to the Yogidetox video and audio library, complete with practices for your detox. You can select your level and length of time. Both yoga students and teachers enjoy the classes as you will learn so much about yoga and detox.
Will this cleanse help my meditation practice?
Yes. You will receive guided meditations to play at your convenience.
Participants are also strongly encouraged to meditate first thing in the morning or just before bed for at least 5-10 minutes, depending on your routine. Meditation assists in drawing energy inward as well as creating a time of assimilation. Cleansing takes great energy, it uses Shakti. Inward focus is critical during cleansing in order to give the body time to understand and adjust to changes. When our energy is constantly extroverted, we feel irritable, frustrated, grumpy, bitchy, etc. Creating even just a few minutes a day for self-care and meditation acts like a reset button, allowing the cleansing effects of the day to sink deeper into the cells. It introverts our awareness and awakens a new depth of detoxification, integration, and healing. Meditation can also calm the fears, anxieties, and worries around food cravings, changes in daily routines, and expectations for the future. It also alleviates depression.
Will I learn more about Ayurveda?
Yes! The Yogidetox is the entrance course to Cate's Living Ayurveda Course. Many yoga students and teachers get fired up about all they learn from Cate's lectures, videos and guest speakers in the Yogidetox. The yoga classes in the Yogidetox are packed with practical Ayurvedic wisdom.
What are the benefits of the Yogidetox while pregnant or postpartum?
All pregnant and postpartum women are guided to do a rejuvenation instead of a detox. It's built into the Yogidetox program, as I know many prenatal and postpartum women who have greatly benefit by taking 3 weeks to focus on diet, self-care and better household routines.
Can I continue my regular exercise program during the cleanse?
Some people have more energy and exercise more than normal during the cleanse. This is typical of Kapha bodytypes. Vata types generally find they are drawn to more nourishing activities like walking and yoga. Pittas may go either way, though in general their drive keeps them quite active. I generally find that cleansing initiates a more reflective quality of the mind and the desire to train hard is replaced by a desire to simply be. Most people who have a race after a cleanse find themselves strong and ready despite having trained less during the cleanse. This would be due to having less ama in their body and mind, and being more in the zone and more deeply nourished for the task at hand.
I’m an athlete; can I continue my workout regime and keep preparing for my race?
Yes. I do not recommend having a competition during the cleanse because one of the purposes of cleansing is to move energy internally rather than externally. However, normal physical activity can be a part of the cleanse and a lightened training schedule is also appropriate. Many people who have cleansed with living foods, green foods, and high pranic foods experience an efficiency of performance. The body is able to eliminate toxins and increase nutrient absorption and energy production during the cleanse. This creates overall increased efficiency in all activities. These same benefits will apply to post-cleanse competitions.
I take medication regularly can I still cleanse and what should I do about taking my medicine?
Yes. Although you need to stay on your medication unless your doctor gives you permission otherwise. You might find there is much power in taking a very proactive approach and perhaps even life-changing approach to your health, while maintaining your medication and cleansing.
Can I work during the cleanse?
In a perfect world, we would all go away on retreat to deeply cleanse and release all responsibility. In tailoring the cleanse I assume most of us will keep working, and some of us have children or parents that come first. I give you timesaving tips to maximize your alone time. While it is common to experience dips and high points during the cleanse, the end result is an increase in energy.
I smoke. Want to quit. Tried before several times, but depression hits — gave up after 6 weeks. Detox might help, but I’m terrified. Any feedback?
Yes, Detox will help. In the guest speakers in the Yogidetox is an interview with Kevin Reese, of eatthesunshine.com. Kevin tells his story from being an obese, sugar-addicted smoker to giving up his outdated habits. This is a common story with detoxing. When your cells are detoxed, they are happy, and they emit cravings for that which is healthy. Unhealthy cells crave unhealthy substances. The detox is an opportunity to let go of outdated patterns.
For smokers looking to detox, instead of just trying to quit, and putting a lot of strain on your system, I’ll invite you to simply start adding in better self-care habits. This way the outdated habits will dissipate on their own, without provoking a war.
You are on the right track. The key is in learning the self-care of detox, which I teach in the Yogidetox.
I overeat. Will I be able to handle the Yogidetox?
Many people have lost weight during the Yogidetox and not struggled with cravings due to the huge emphasis on better self-care rituals and daily habits that we learn in the Yogidetox. The emphasis isn't on weightloss - it's on self-care and reconnecting with intuition with our cells to make choices in sync with our higher nature.
What I hear the most is, “Everything gets better!” This is due to the systemic nature of toxins (ama) that creates dis-ease, low energy, and innerbody confusion/stress. The anti-inflammatory nature of the Yogidetox coupled with the lymphatic cleansing clears out joint pain and mucus. For those who cleanse 10-15 days your skin and eyes will tend to clear and glow.
What are the long-term benefits?
Many! Increased energy, better sleep, stress reduction, lifelong self-care practices, and more! The most common feedback I receive from past Yogidetox clients is a higher level of understanding of how to take care of and heal their own bodies in ways they can share with their families and loved ones. These are skills that they will use for the rest of their lives. These fundamental practices are part of the traditional Ayurvedic routine or dinacharya. We take time during the cleanse to learn these practices and they simply become a part of daily life.
