Yoga Detox Workshop
Yoga Detox is a popular way of cleaning the internal organs. The point of Yoga Detox is to do just what the name says – stimulate the detoxification of your body. There are lots of products out there that claim to “detox,” so how is Yoga Detox different? Simple – we’re stimulating processes that already work within your body. You don’t need to add anything to your system or take anything away; we’re not asking for a diet change and we’re not selling you a product. Your body is a detoxification machine, and Yoga Detox is meant to support the processes that naturally happen within your different internal systems.
I’ll start by going through a quick explanation of the systems we’re looking to stimulate. The main system we focus on in a Detox Flow is the digestive system. The large intestine is the final part of the digestive system; this is where your body absorbs any leftover water in the indigestible food matter and forms feces to excrete from the body. The large intestine forms a half-circle around the small intestine; the half circle starts low on the right and moves upward, crosses over the abdomen to the left, and then moves downward.
The secondary system that we focus on in Hatha Detox is the lymphatic system, which is part of the circulatory (heart and blood vessels) and immune systems. The lymphatic system is made up of tissues and organs that rid the body of unwanted toxins and also transport infection-fighting white blood cells throughout the body. The largest organ in the lymphatic system is the spleen, and there are many lymph nodes throughout the body where the primary lymphatic system responsibilities are carried out.
