If you feel sluggish and out of sorts, your digestive system might need a boost. I love to start the new year with a clean slate, so to speak. Whether its a gentle detox, a spring clean or creating new intentions and healthier resolves, new year is a time for 'out with the old and in with the new' well, however you look at it, January is a perfect time to start a fresh.
Yoga is a great way to cleanse both body and mind of toxins and waste and can really give a boost to the whole immune system. Here are a few tips to incorporate into your daily routine, sprinkled with poses to stimulate the digestive tract and get the body moving. As you do the poses imagine your body is like a sponge being squeezed, twisted and wrung-out, ridding the body of unwanted toxins, stagnation and negativity. Think of each new breath as a new beginning, a fresh start.
