Spring – Awakening The New – Detoxify & Cleanse
SIt’s like the World has been asleep and then finally, something stirs and an awakening is taking place. It’s subtle at first, a slight stirring, an unfolding and finally, a bursting through.
Spring is here and everything feels new, fresh and alive with hope.
There is renewed energy, vigor and determination to get things done. To move forward. To make changes in our lives and in our homes.
But this is also traditionally a time when folks clear out the old first to make way for the new. It’s a time to let go of what doesn’t work or is no longer needed so that you can make room for new stuff – or just to be able to think more clearly. This is something that I admit I find difficult to do.
Just recently my husband and I cleared out 5 large black bags full of stuff from ours and our sons bedroom (most of it was my stuff!) It’s something I had been meaning to do for ages. But its taken me awhile to act. Now that this has been done (and there is still way to go) I’ve noticed that my productivity has gone up and I’ve been able to think more clearly and efficiently.
This season is also a time of detoxification. Many peeps get colds due to the weather change. We can help detoxify the digestive system by fasting or cleanses and we can use our yoga practice to help the lymphatic system get rid of wastes.
Yoga Postures Which Cleanse & Detoxify
This yoga practice is the breath aligned with movement and is a detoxification practice in itself due to its more rigorous and dynamic aspect.
Mariychiasana III – Pose Dedicated to the Sage Marichi
The squeezing motion of the abdomen against the thigh helps to aid digestion and elimination.
Adha Muka Savasana – Downward Facing Dog
Downward Facing Dog : The elevation of the heart above the head reverses gravity and aids lympth drainage and blood circulation.
Viparita Karani – Legs up the wall
Abdomen relaxes and stimulation of the digestive organs.
In my classes, I use a myriad of twists and revolving standing poses.
