Yoga Flow for Spring

Yoga Flow For Spring

This is the time of year we naturally look to cleanse our environment. Why not cleanse your body too! Here is a great detox yoga flow to get things moving internally. Make sure you are under the guidance of a qualified yoga instructor or have a daily practice before starting this detox routine.

  • Start in a seated position and twist slowly to the right and then to the left - seated spinal twist.
  • Move to several rounds of cat-cow and take a lions roar or Simhasa breath.
  • Take several rounds of Sun salutations A and B variations.
  • From Down dog hop into boat pose and work that core!
  • Rock and roll on your spine and float up into twisting chair pose.
  • Step back to warrior 1 and glide into pyramid pose.
  • Take a sun salutation and move into twisting triangle and really release those toxins! Remember to repeat on the other side.
  • Glide back down to the earth into seated forward fold and hold for several breaths to help with the digestive and elimination processes of the body.
  • Relax back into bridge pose for 5 breaths and release back down to the earth one vertebrae at a time. Let the knees drop from one side to the other and let go of lumbar spine.
  • Transition into wind relieving pose and then lengthen the legs towards the sky for legs up a wall. - water fall pose.
  • Release to corpse pose for at lease 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Drink plenty of fresh water to assist your body with the cleanse.

Happy Spring...Ommm!
