I don't think there is.
You can change the template of your VM by manually editing the database and then shut it down
and restart it.
This way at the next start CS will re-deploy the new template for the VM and start it.

Please be aware this is not recommended in production due to this method will confuse the
storage clean-up scripts and will kill your live VM in case the old template it was based
on no longer required.
It is always recommended to create a new VM instance with the new template.

Is there a way through the Cloudstack UI, to respin an already active instance with a new
template? I see a way in the API, but nothing in the UI.
