Detoxing the body comes with many benefits. Detox is defined as a process that removes harmful toxins from the body. Your liver and other organs do this automatically when you have too much of something that is not supposed to be in your body. The best way to detox in a healthy way is by regularly exercising, eating healthy, and staying active. Certain meditational yoga poses can be done everyday to aid in the detox process.
The hero’s pose is a great way to begin detoxing your digestive system. This simple technique helps you to stay warm, relaxed, and rooted. This pose provides the body with great circulatory benefits which helps fight against frigid feet. The hero’s pose also has digestive benefits that counteract a reaction to consuming too much food and drink. It also invigorates the legs by calming body and mind energies.
Practicing the twisting pose also comes with many health benefits. This easy pose helps to restore the spine’s original range of motion, cleanses organs, and stimulates circulation. During this pose, the organs are compressed which pushes out blood with metabolic byproducts and toxins. When the twist is released, fresh blood flows in, carrying oxygen and the building blocks to promote tissue healing. The twist pose provides physiological benefits to the circulatory system and internal organs, structurally benefits the musculoskeletal system, and supplies the consciousness with focusing benefits.
The cat-cow position is another great technique to practice while also focusing on your breathing. It is important to switch positions on each inhale and exhale, matching your breathing to your movements. This yoga position is used to improve posture and balance, stretch the hips, abdomen, and lower back. It can also create emotional balance, relieve stress, and calm the mind.
