About Sacha Jones Classes:
Online Cleanse & Nourish Classes

 

Origin:

Sacha created these nourish & cleanse classes back in 2006. She became aware of how frequently people she knew expressed being tired and run-down.  It really seemed that it was more normal to feel bloated and exhausted than it was to feel vibrant and energized - and that it was a given to get sick a couple of times a year.

 

At the same time she was experiencing such dramatic healing for herself - a combination of dietary and lifestyle changes had worked wonders and she knew this could be true for others as well.  Even though at the time her holistic wellness practice was new, she quickly began seeing that in her clients, tiny tweaks could make bold, dramatic differences for the better.

 

Collectively things have changed a great deal, even in the years since Sacha started working in holistic wellness. There is a greater understanding now that what we eat affects how we feel (this was not always common knowledge). But it can still be overwhelming and confusing, so one of Sacha’s main intentions behind these classes is to demystify the world of wellness - to make it accessible, friendly, fun and delicious!

When Sacha first got sick with ulcerative colitis in 2003, she dove deep into research. (She didn’t have health insurance and was very determined to get better.)  This research became a full time study and led her to studying formally at IIN, eventually culminating in working with others and creating Sacha Jones Holistic Living (formerly Stiggly Holistics).

It has been so rewarding for Sacha to work with clients and observe how small daily changes can lead to profound life changes, but she realized that by exclusively working one-on-one, she couldn’t reach as many people as she wanted to. And thus, the group nourish & cleanse class was born. 

 

About:

Working with groups like this is so rich - it provides the opportunity to work with a larger group of beautiful individuals, but also something even more incredible evolved from that idea - the community aspect, which in and of itself is such a healing tool. We are tribal by nature and working hand-in-hand toward a common goal (in this case, feeling good) is just the best gift. Most of us are very much more inspired when we have accountability partners, and that is what these classes are really about.

 

Taking care of oneself can have an amazing ripple effect on those around us. Studies have shown that we tend to be highly influenced by our peers. For example, friend groups can often have the same eating habits or body types - and this is in part because we subconsciously really want to fit in.  

 

In the context of these classes, sharing the common goal of feeling our best self, is really contagious, in the best way.  By meeting in the private facebook group or on the weekly zoom calls, we feel truly encouraged to keep showing up for ourselves.  Even those who don’t participate in the social aspect of the class report back that even getting the daily emails and having awareness that we are doing this collectively has a really positive effect.  There is something very different about this experience than simply getting a book out on dietary change.   What we do here is in real time. You will be held up, seen and loved.

And the ripple effect keeps on going.  When we feel better, we treat those around us (and the planet) better.

How the class works:

This class offers an opportunity to reconnect with ourselves - with our bodies, minds, hearts, souls. We do not work with a deprivation mindset but rather focus on lots of good stuff, kindness and love - what CAN we eat, what IS working well, and so on.

We get more comfortable in our kitchens by making lovely, simple, tasty meals. Nourishment is at the core as we give our digestive system a rest - and work to strengthen our immune systems.

 

We also explore non-food self-care rituals including decluttering and journaling and daily walks.

 

These classes are designed as springboards into long term wellness, and are packed with information and tools to take with you when the class finishes. You will have access to our new VIP website, only open to members where you will find recipes and journal prompts and more fun stuff. 

 

A group class such as this is very much a community experience - the private facebook group  is made up of intelligent, thoughtful, kind souls from around the world, so you will have many cheerleaders. A group class offers a sense of accountability - with all the checking-in, we are more likely to stay present and help others do the same.

This class is tiered - we tread gently from chapter to chapter, rather than diving in at the deep end, as follows:  

We start with warm-up and wean-off week to help us prepare emotionally and practically.

The following ten days are more deeply focused on cleansing, releasing and letting go.

Then we have a period of gently reintegrating, applying the new information and recipes so we can keep the nourishing elements going forward. 

We learn so much about ourselves during these introspective periods that we are usually inspired to continue on the wellness journey, with all these new tools to guide us.

Sliding Scale:

I really wish to keep my classes accessible to everyone, while also honoring my work and experience. I keep my prices steady and offer a range for a wide variety of incomes.  I ask everyone to please pay what they can afford, while at once appreciating the value of this work. If you can afford to pay more, please know that you are helping to keep the lights on at Sacha Jones Holistic Living - you also help me to maintain the sliding scale option for others. Choose a price point that you know will feel like an investment in self and inspire you to stay present!

Important - there are many, many hidden fees in running a small business.  Websites, newsletter companies, zoom, etc… it is thus really appreciated when you pay by Zelle or use the “friends and family” feature on PayPal so we can avoid even more fees being taken out of your payment. (These options are for those who reside in the United States).  Thank you so much for understanding… if you aren’t sure how to pay with these methods, please ask.  

Any amounts upwards of $81 are accepted through Zelle and Friends & Family on PP.
