Hello perfect yoga video for the holidays, aka for when we’ve eaten and drank too damn much.
Three words sum up this yoga flow.
Twist. Detox. Digest.
And yes, I plan for us to do all three, including the last one….. as in taking a poop.
Soooooo, the holidays.
They’re filled with SO MUCH LOVE, so much family, so many social gatherings, so much food, and sometimes so many drinks. And I don’t know about you babes, but I have a serious problem with keeping it in check throughout it all.
I’m kinda out of control, actually.
Which then leads to incredible discomfort, major inflammation, and consequently – starting the new year off in a funk.
A blah funk.
In an effort to change this obvious pattern of mine, plus so many others, I thought we could breathe + bend it out with a detox & digestion flow.
Think of this flow as your secret weapon to the holiday season – it’s here whenever you need it, however many times you want it, and it will always perform.
Quite the weapon, I might add.
Before we start moving, sweating, twisting, detoxing and digesting….. I want to quickly touch on why twisting is so good for us & how it relates back to our body’s health.
- Spine mobility
- Overall back health
- Neutralizing (when done on both sides)
- Aids in digestion
Detoxing – How?
- Helps to stimulate our organs, including our elimination organs
- Stimulates circulation and creates heat
- Releases tension in the muscles of the spine, abdomen and rib cage
When to Avoid Twists:
- Spinal disc injury
- Sacroiliac (SI) joint issues
Okay, yoga lesson is complete.
I invite you to step on your mat, breathe deep, twist it out and move it out (that last part is a joke, BTW).
Until next time, xoxo.
