This workshop will be a Vinyasa inspired detoxifying sequence of asanas which will make you sweat.  We will focus on twisting postures to help your body flush out toxins whilst at the same time stimulating and masaging your digestive & cleansing organs.  During the sequence we will also concentrate on activating the deep core muscles.  We will also dedicate some time to vibrant breath work that will help to remove toxins and rebalance the body.  We will finish with a half hour relaxing & rejuvenating Yoga Nidra.

The workshop takes place in Felda Gym, Dublin Road Dundalk on Sunday 23rd June from 10am-12:30pm.  €20 per person. You DO NOT need to be a member of Felda Gym to attend this workshop.

Why Yoga to Detox?

There are three main systems of the body that play a crucial role in the elimination of wastes — circulatory, digestive and lymph.  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.

Yogic breathing also plays an important role in promoting detoxification.  Sitting with poor posture impedes the lungs from inflating fully, and our chronic state of low grade stress often leads to a clenched diaphragm—the parachute shaped muscle at the bottom of the rib cage that assists in breathing.  As a result, we don’t take in as much life sustaining oxygen when we inhale, or expel as much of the potentially hazardous carbon dioxide when we exhale.  Yogic breathing helps clear out carbon dioxide from the lung tissue, stimulates the organs of digestion and can, over time, retrain the diaphragm to move freely.

In addition to its physical benefits, yoga aids a mental detox as well.  Doing yoga helps purge toxic thoughts by teaching you to move your awareness away from the chaos of the mind and back to the present moment. That practice is not a basic component of other fitness pursuits.
