  • Simple Spring Detox Tips

    The spring season is a natural time to detox. We welcome the shift from heavy, warming foods to more fresh greens, sprouts and berries and start to spend more time in the sunshine! Tap into the momentum of this season with these simple detoxification tips: Hit up your local farmers market for some interesting greens. Instead of getting the same old spinach and kale, try out some spicy mustard greens, colorful chard varieties, mild mache, and more. Take a break from heavy processed foods. Feeling light and energetic isn't necessarily about weight loss. Decreasing the burden on your body to handle those heavy meals will leave you with more energy! Turn your workouts up a notch. Spring is kapha season, which means that there's more stamina available. Fire up your digestive juices with kapalabhati, breath of fire. Keep a tissue handy, especially if you have a runny nose from allergies. Use your Yoga practice to support your bodies' detoxification practice, twists support your liver and digestive tract. Here's a few yoga classes specifically focused on detoxification:

  • The Ultimate Spring Cleaning Flow

    Ah, spring!

    Tomorrow you arrive, bringing with you more sunshine, warmth, and renewal - all reasons to celebrate!

    Springtime's the prime time to cleanse your body with detoxifying yoga. As Mother Nature’s New Year, ‘tis the season to get rid of any old stuff hanging around to make space for greater health and happiness.

    To shed that heavy winter coat, it's important to get into a rhythm and routine that gradually helps you to lighten up physically, mentally, and emotionally. The best yoga routine includes lots of twisting, pranayama (breathing practices), Sun Salutations, strong standing poses, and backbends, all of which pump prana (vital energy) throughout your system and turn up tapas (inner heat).

    Lucky for you, we feature many routines fitting for spring. To shift into the season smoothly, we especially recommend Kiyomi Takahashi’s freshly added yoga video: Detox and Cleanse for Clarity.

    This online yoga class is specifically designed to cleanse your system and clear out mental cobwebs. Featuring lots of twisting poses and breath work, this Vinyasa flow will help you let go of the old to create space in the body to receive new energy. This practice will also aid your digestion and elimination by wringing out acid, toxins, and mucus that build up in our digestive systems. Walk away from this online yoga experience feeling light, cleansed, refreshed, and clear-headed. Chances are you'll want to make this online yoga video an integral component of your spring cleaning strategy. (48 mins.)
