Yoga for Detox & Digestion (23 minutes)
Get a fresh start this new year with this buttkicking, detoxifying yoga flow!
This is an intermediate sequence, but most of what we do here is demonstrated in my other videos. You’ll fly through Side Crow, Warrior 3, Eagle Pose and many more twists and inversions to cleanse the body. We focus on a deep abdominal breath (belly breathing) to detoxify the body through exhaling cellular waste, cleansing and stimulating the lymphatic system (60% of your body’s lymph nodes are located just under the diaphragm!) and as a way to stay calm and grounded.
“Twisting poses squeeze and massage your organs. This provides oxygen to the kidneys and liver by delivering a rush of blood to the tissues. When you release a twisting pose, your organs become flooded with a rush of nutrients, and toxins are released. This allows your organs to work more efficiently and effectively by cleansing the blood that circulates throughout your body.”
