Yes. You can bring a spouse and they are welcome to enjoy all the amenities that The Sanctuary at Kiawah has to offer. You are welcome to spend time with one another during breaks; however, they will not be able to join us for meals, workouts, and workshops.


What if I have dietary restrictions?

If you have any dietary restrictions, please let Alyssa Boyle know at by noon on Monday, January 28th.


Will I be tired or sluggish when I first begin?

You may experience symptoms such as headache, fatigue, bloating, and decreased energy within the first week. This is completely normal and even expected. Your body is going through caffeine and sugar withdrawal as well as clearing out toxins and organic substances.


Is there anything I can do to prepare for the cleanse prior to February 1st?

  1. Begin to decrease caffeine consumption one week prior. For example, if you drink 2 cups of coffee a day – start by cutting down to one cup a day and then to half a cup.

  2. Begin to clear out your pantry of processed, refined foods. In addition, clear out any foods that may pose temptation or be a barrier to your success.


What should I wear?

  • Friday – Casual

  • Saturday morning - Athletic clothing (tennis shoes optional)

  • Saturday afternoon and evening – Casual
