When was the last time you went to Yoga class? Didn’t you come away feeling great! I know when I am not doing my Yoga, I really miss it. But, did you know that Yoga can be used to detox your body and clear up your lymph system and organs for a fresher, clearer, more energetic you?

This little post from Gaiam, I found this morning reminded me to tell you all about this effect that regular Yoga sessions can give you. Go find a class and get going today!

“Most forms of vigorous exercise stimulate all three systems of elimination to some extent, thereby helping the body in its quest to detox. But yoga, with its focus on systematically stretching and compressing every part of the body, is particularly well-suited to keeping the waste-removal departments of the body functioning well. “In a well-rounded yoga practice, every part of the body is pushed, pulled, twisted, turned and upended. This facilitates the removal of waste products such as carbon dioxide, lactic acid and lymphatic fluid from the deep tissues and extremities of the body that a jog or a bike ride just don’t reach,”

Gaiam

We all know we need to detox, and doing it regularly can make our lives work better, we will not wake with that feeling as if we are pushing our way through water instead of air, and we just might be able to take our occasional excesses with less kick back 🙂
