At Alessandrina Lerner's Mind-Body Cleanse, Miami Can Shed Toxins Without Spending A Fortune
That's the same year Lerner became a vegetarian and began a journey of cleansing and self-discovery. "From there, my awareness kept growing. [When I ate animal products] I could just feel the suffering of the animals, so I just couldn't do it. I found yoga through meditation, and continued to try to figure out why I'm here and who I am."
Now in her early forties, she's a vegan who fluctuates between raw foods and macrobiotics. More importantly, she's dedicated herself completely to helping others detoxify both physically and spiritually. She's just recently teamed up with a Sadhu, a local Kundalini yogi and a spiritual guide to augment her program further. Together, they offer a thorough week-long detox program that even non-celebrities can afford.

Under the constant guidance of an Indian swami, she studied yoga, meditation, and vegetarian nutrition and purification until her ex-husband's jealousy forced her to give up the discipleship after a few months.
"The swami gave me massages. Of course they were nothing, but my ex found out and freaked out." But she didn't stop learning, continuing to read spiritual books and to practice yoga. "I would do asanas three or four hours a day and read, read, read."
