Yoga for Detoxing

Our bodies are designed to naturally eliminate waste and toxins. When we exercise regularly and consume a healthy-balanced diet, our digestive, circulatory and lymphatic systems work together to eliminate pollutants. If you ever feel bloated, heavy and sluggish your body might be in need of a good cleanse and yoga is one of the best forms of exercise to help detox and restore your body to a healthy state.


Our body sheds toxins naturally through the Digestive, Circualatory and Lymphatic Systems:


The Digestive System processes all of our food, storing the nutrients whilst shedding waste and unwanted toxins.


The Circulatory System pumps blood from the heart throughout the body, transporting oxygen to the cells and removing waste from the cells.


The Lymphatic System fluid transports harmful matter to the lymph nodes where bacteria can be removed prior to returning to the bloodstream. Unlike the circulatory system, the lymphatic flow has no pump and relies on exercise or massage to operate optimally.

Detoxing Yoga Poses

Some excellent postures for detoxification are spinal twists, as they help to stimulate the abdominal and digestive organs, rinsing toxins from the body. Forward bends are also great postures as they actively compress the digestive organs speeding up elimination of toxins. Inversions also help drain fluid from the feet and legs (legs up the wall) back towards the heart.
