What is Detox Yoga?
Detox yoga gives you energy and improves your general wellbeing. Some exercises are soothing and provide relaxation, and some of the yoga positions are focused on movements that help the body to cleanse toxins and stimulate “agni”, the digestive fire, for better digestion. The mobility of the gut is as important as eating the right food. The goal is to massage the internal organs and achieve balance. This class consists of dynamic and static yoga poses which are partly combined with specific breathing exercises. A short meditation at the end of the class will calm your mind and “nervous system of the gut”. Detox yoga on a regular basis will help the body break down toxins faster, support the digestive process and increase metabolism in the body. Get excited and activate your body’s own detox system and speed up the cleansing process with regular exercise and healthy eating habits!
What are the benefits of a detox?
Many people find that detoxification gives them more energy and improves their sleeping patterns. Long-term benefits are less inflammation, less pain and joint pain as well as fewer colds and allergy problems.
From my own experience, I can confirm that you will produce less gases, and that the abdomen feels less or no longer swollen or bloated. Even if you want to lose weight, detoxification is recommended because it will help you to improve the intestinal flora and intestinal mucosa, which will improve your nutrient uptake.
For whom is a detox suitable?
A detox is suitable for every one who:
• experiences back and joint stiffness or cracking joints
• feel tired without any reason or a lack of energy
• feels bloated very often
• has skin problems like acne
• has headaches
• has bad breath, smelly sweat & stools
When should you not do a detox?
A should not do a detox if you are pregnant or have a cold or fever. You should feel completely healthy.
U. Hammarsköld from Helsingborg has done the program and writes the following:
“Many questions were answered. All stomach pain disappeared even though I was still constipated. All aches throughout the body and in the joints and discomfort disappeared -3kg. Before I was swollen but not anymore.”
