Welcome to 2015.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
If like you me you over indulged just a little, we have a perfect yoga class this January to help detox the system.
We are working on stimulating the circulatory, digestive and lymphatic systems, these systems rid toxins and waste from our body.
Through various asanas you'll tone the tummy from the inside out and feel the gentle pressure on your kidneys, liver and spleen, which stimulates the removal of waste, toxins and aids digestion.
Twisting poses are all about aiding digestion, which encourages the elimination of wastes, so we have incorporated twists into many of our familiar poses such as
Wide legged forward bend, which reverses the pull of gravity, encouraging circulation of blood throughout the body as well as fluid to your filtering lymph nodes, the folding motion also squeezes the belly, which moves things along for digestion.
Downward dog, so we're encouraging blood to circulate throughout the body, as well as move fluid to the lymph nodes, strengthening the upper body so this pose can also be very relaxing, which aids in mental detox, releasing stress, fear and sadness.
Lots of healthy deep breathing so you lungs can fully expand and contract with each breath, as deep breathing encourages the body to eliminate carbon dioxide, lactic acid, lymphatic fluid, and other wastes.
To see what other asanas we have to gently massage and stimulate you inner organs and firm your tummy then pop along to class and give it a try :)
