Certain yoga poses, such as deep stretches or backbends, support the natural process of eliminating toxins. These four postures will give you new energy thanks to their regenerating effect!
If regular physical exercise contributes to the elimination of toxins, through a stimulating effect on blood and lymphatic circulation, the following yoga postures particularly help the organs in their natural elimination process. Back stretches mobilize the abdominal area in depth, compressing the liver. Twisting movements, on the other hand, stimulate the movement of the viscera, “tightening” the liver and other organs of digestion and increasing blood circulation there. You can practice the postures presented below alone at home in complete safety, scrupulously following the instructions.
Relax in the sleep goddess pose
Very comfortable, this relaxation posture (called supta baddhakonasana) deeply stretches the abdominal area. It promotes digestion, decongests the liver and gallbladder and its relaxing effect favors the functioning of the emunctories in general. It also tones the kidneys and bladder.
1.Place a long cushion on the floor (or blankets folded lengthwise).
2. Sit facing forward with your knees open to the sides, the soles of your feet together, your heels close to your pubes (you can rest your toes against a wall to maintain the position more easily).
3. Be careful not to arch your back too much: support yourself with your hands to tilt your pelvis forward and lengthen your lower back.
4. Lie down on the cushion.
5. As you inhale, stretch your arms behind your head and grab your elbows.
6. Stay for five to ten minutes breathing calmly.
upward facing dog stretch
This Upward-Facing Dog Pose (Urdhva Mukha Svanasana) is practiced with the hands on the ground, but beginners will benefit from performing it using a chair to ease the work of the arms and joints. Like all backward extension poses, such as sphinx or cobra, it will create a great abdominal stretch that will compress the liver, helping it release accumulated waste, while toning and irrigating the kidneys.
1.Place a chair against the wall. Grasp the outer edges of the seat and extend your arms.
2. Step your feet back, keeping them in line with your hands.
3. Bring your pelvis and thighs toward the floor.
4. Straighten your legs and lower your tailbone well so you don’t arch! The lower back is lengthened and the navel is drawn back toward the spine.
5. Stretch your arms, firmly pushing the chair back with your hands; bring the upper part of the bust to the sky while inhaling, move the shoulders back and down, lift the chin slightly.
6. Stay for a few breath cycles.
The Fish Pose (ardha matsyendrasana) is a very effective twist. It sets in motion the energy of the liver, which is sometimes blocked. By twisting the bust to the side, the twist will stimulate the colon, liver, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, and intestines. As a precaution, it is best to place a cushion under your buttocks to straighten your back before rotating your spine. Torsions are contraindicated during periods of menstruation, pregnancy and digestion. It is best to perform them once the intestines have been emptied, otherwise the toxins will rise in the body!
1. Sit on a cushion with your legs stretched out.
2. Bend the right leg and pass it over the left leg, which you bend up until the heel is in the direction of the right buttock.
3. Inhale as you stretch your arms up to grow. As you exhale, twist your chest to the right, flatten your left elbow (your arm is bent, as in the photo) against your outer knee, and place your right hand on the floor behind you.
4. On the next inhalation, go higher; turn a little more on the exhale, when the belly hollows out. 5.Repeat on the other side.
