Spring Detox Yoga Poses

Spring Detox Yoga Poses.

 

Yoga poses for spring detox.

Spring is a great time to clean up your act and detoxify your body from toxins accumulated throughout the winter (toxins from food, the air, chemicals, GMOs, pollution and preservatives).

It is also a time of renewal and rejuvenation, so cleansing is natural in spring – we often feel a deep need to rid ourselves of unwanted items and create a new space.

To start detox, you don’t need to commit to weeks of sipping on just green juice.

Simply do these yoga poses below, it will stimulate your circulatory, digestive, and lymphatic systems, helping you rid your body of waste and toxins!

In addition to the physical benefits, yoga can also provide mental clarity.

The calming and relaxing aspects of yoga are essential for an all-over detox for your mind and body, helping release physical, mental, and emotional toxicity.

 

The benefits of spring detox yoga poses are:

– improved digestion

– increased energy

– balanced hormones

– weight loss

Here are the spring detox yoga poses.  Start to be aware of your breath, take deep inhales and exhale fully through the nose ideally.  Keep your breath steady and even.

 

Chair Pose With Twist

Bring your feet either hip-width apart or together (depending on your comfort level).

Bend your knees as if you are sitting on a chair; make sure your knees are aligned with the centre of your feet.

Bring your hands together at the heart canter and bring one elbow to the opposite knee, pressing your palms firmly together.

Squeeze your shoulder blades together and open your chest wide.

Benefits: stimulates the liver and digestive system while toning the abdominals and improving the elimination process.  In addition, this pose improves the health of the spine and vertebrae.

 

Half Spinal Twist Seated

Sit on the floor with both legs stretched out in front of you.

Bend your left leg towards your chest.

Rotate your torso toward your left knee.

Wrap your right arm around the left knee.

Inhale and lengthen your spine, exhale and gently twist from your belly, swap sides and repeat.

Benefits: helps to stimulate digestion and remove the toxins of the body.  As the abdominal organs are squeezed, the kidney and liver are stimulated.  When the twist is released, blood then enters the organs.

 

Boat Pose Pulses

Sit with knees bent and feet flat on the ground.

Hold arms, palms up, in front so that hands brush the sides of knees.

Lean back until torso is at a 45-degree angle to the floor.

Slowly lift feet off of the floor as you straighten legs any amount (it is fine to have knees bent), forming a “V” with your body.

From boat, lower middle back to the floor as you reach knees to the right and arms to the left.

Return to boat in the centre, then lower knees to left and arms to right.

Repeat this sequence 10 times on each side.

Benefits: fires up the digestive system while melting away that belly fat!

 

Bow Pose

Lie facing down, bend knees, and take hold of ankles.

Press feet into hands, keeping knees hip-width apart, and lift head and chest off the ground.

Stay here for 5 deep breaths.

Benefits: puts light pressure on the belly, making the digestive system stronger and healthier by increasing blood flow to abdominal organs.
