As a form of exercise, yoga is a great tool for jump-starting the body’s detox process. A fast-paced or intense flow sequence will make you sweat out toxins. In addition, yoga masters like B.K.S. Iyengar said that certain yoga poses stimulate the organs in charge of the detoxification process.
While the medical community is still debating whether these claims have a scientific basis, at the very least, yoga helps us reach a state of introspection, mindfulness, and rest. These qualities are essential for detoxing the mind and relieving stress that increases our toxin levels. Twist poses are particularly good at achieving this.
