THREE TWISTS OF YOGA TO HELP WITH DETOX!
Your body is an incredible organism, designed to absorb everything it needs and eliminate waste. But to make it even more effective, there are some twisting postures in yoga that help the body in its cleansing functions! Here are three twists that you can add to your dynamic practice:
THE CHAIR RETURNED (Parivrtta utkatasana):
This posture activates blood circulation and exerts a slight pressure on your liver, kidneys and stimulates the heart. The benefits of this powerful posture are not limited to detoxifying the body, it will also strengthen your legs and buttocks! Keep your weight in your heels and steer your buttocks back. Knees are glued together, breathe out in a twisting motion trying to open your chest with a flat back and hands pressed in prayer close to your sternum.
INVERTED TRIANGLE (Parivrtta trikonasana) :
This posture opens your chest and shoulders while stretching your back and legs. The twist stimulates your abdominal muscles, improves digestion and activates blood circulation. Keep your pelvis compact, your back straight and open your chest to stay in line! If you don't touch the ground, use a brick.
SEAT TORSION (Ardha matsyendrasana) :
This simple and accessible posture activates the digestive process by a compressive effect on various organs. Choose the variation that suits your abilities, make sure to keep your back straight and long and your shoulders open.
Whatever the discipline practiced, yoga teaches a new approach to daily life, based on a healthy lifestyle. It is this new balance that leads each practitioner towards the path of detox.
Have a good detox!
