Yoga is a great way to support your body's natural detoxification system. It helps stimulate circulation and eliminate toxins from the bloodstream and lymphatic vessels. It also strengthens and tones the abdomen, hip flexors and spine, and stimulates the kidneys, thyroid and intestines. The eagle pose, boat pose, and Bound Headstand support are all great poses for detoxifying the body.
When it comes to getting rid of toxins, regular healthy habits will always be better than a juice fast or a two-week liver cleansing plan. Supporting our body in its natural functions is both holistic and scientifically proven to be effective. Yoga provides a form of exercise that supports general health and, specifically, supports the lymphatic system for effective detoxification of our bodies. The yogatherapy components of the YogauOnline courses are based on the teacher's yogatherapy certifications and trainings; a regular practice of yoga, including vigorous asanas and pranayama, as part of a general wellness plan can help the natural detoxification system work more efficiently.
And I know from anecdotal experience that my students and I feel better after a yoga practice with twisted asanas.
