Spring is here! It’s time for warm weather, fresh produce, and lots of time outside. It also means moving out of our winter hibernation and back into the world – which calls for a little more energy and maybe even a shedding of some winter, well, layers.
Let’s be honest, in the winter, many of us bulk up, not only on sweaters, but on warming, comforting foods. Which is perfect – it’s what our bodies need to get through a crazy winter like this past one! But as Spring approaches, it’s time to let all of that go and bring a little more vigor and Spring into our steps. And often times, that means eating fresher, lighter foods that are “cleansing” in nature aka fibrous, filling, and green. They’ll flush out your system, remove any excess, um, waste, and get you feeling lighter and brighter in no time.
And we’ll do exactly that in this week’s detox yoga segment.
Ever wonder exactly how a detox yoga class works? It’s a combination of things: you release sweat/fluids/sinus pressure that have built up, you clear your digestive tract with twists and folds, and you release tension throughout the spine. It’s a win-win-win situation.
We started with Sun Salutations, to connect you to your breath, warm up your body, and move your spine in all directions. Then we focused on twists and folds to squeeze out toxins. Last week we moved into some deeper stretches and longer holds to help you release deep tension and stress. This week we’ll finish up with some core work to really tone and work the digestive system, as well as some deep, relaxing floor stretches. Get ready to tone and release this week into a fully detoxed and cleansed new you!
Look for the Detox Yoga Playlist and Spring Cleanse Tips Playlist coming to you later this week. That way you’ll be able to reach them all in one place and stream them together for a full-blown Detox Yoga class, right in your own living room.
If you enjoyed this class, you will love the detoxifying exercises and meal plan in the 10-Day Spring Cleanse, coming up April 21-30. Spots are filling up, which means you will have support and a community of people surrounding you going through the same program. You can lean on each other for support, learn from each others experiences, and help each other out – as much or as little as you want to. If you are ready to shed layers by eating better, exercising more, and letting go of all the mental stress, sign up here. Registration closes April 18th. Just think about it – for $15 a day and in just 10 days ($150 total) you could be lighter, brighter, and fully detoxed!
I can’t wait to “see” you there!
Peace and Love,
