The word ‘Detox’ is loosely used in health and fitness. There are so many methods of detoxing the body via cleanses; diet, supplements, herbal treatments, fasts and juicing, colonics and current studies are demonstrating the effects of exercise as a viable detoxification method.
You’re not imagining it. Winter still isn’t over. There’s no daylight when your alarm clock goes off, you’ve logged more miles than you’d like to count on the dreadmill, and — duh — it’s really cold out there. It’s no surprise that any motivation to get outdoors and work up a sweat has gone the way of the groundhog and buried itself until spring.
When you feel tired and weighed down by stress, a lack of exercise, and poor food choices, give your body and mind a reboot with a detox.
A detox doesn’t always mean a rigorous diet, juice fast, or ingesting a combination of nauseating herbs. You can detox through yoga too, with a practice that’ll leave you feeling cleaner on the inside and more energetic on the outside.
Give the following asanas a try and see the benefits for yourself.
