Detox Yoga

Before the holidays is a great time to detox. It can stave off weight gain and put you in a healthy mindset to help you resist temptation. And detoxing after the holiday “re-tox” — no matter how much carnage was left on that Thanksgiving dinner table, or how much stress crept into your weekend — is as easy as unrolling your mat. No matter when or on what level you could use a little realigning, this sequence is for you.

It seems as if cold and flu season is packing an extra punch this winter. But did you know that yoga can help you fend off these illnesses?

Yoga can help protect you from marauding viral invaders like cold and flu germs because it:

  • Detoxifies and oxygenates your system
  • Balances the hormones you need for a strong immune system
  • Reduces stress and fatigue, two precursors to lowered immunity
  • Triggers acupressure points said to help evict viruses and bacteria from your body

Add these yoga poses to your regular routine and say, “Good riddance, sniffles!”
