Twist & Shout! New Year’s Yoga Detox Workshop

Feeling sluggish after the holidays? Come to Cascade Yoga’s “Twist & Shout!” New Year’s Yoga Detox Workshop.

Twists are the “rinse & refresh” for our digestive organs. The twisting action compresses the abdominal organs and result in a lack of circulation. When the twist is released, the abdominal organs are flooded with fresh blood. That rush of blood flow brings fresh oxygen and nutrients into the abdominal organs and thereby cleanse the organs of built up waste.

In a similar manner, inversions bring fresh blood to our brain and endocrine system that our hearts normally have to work to pump fresh blood to, while our lower extremities experience a lack of circulation. When we release the inversion, blood rushes back to our lower bodies bringing a fresh supply of oxygen and nutrients with it.

In this 3 hour workshop, we will explore a variety of standing, seated and supine twists. Established students will progress in their practice of inversions and new students will be introduced safely to inversion preparations. Teacher permission, before the workshop begins, is required to participate in full inversions.

We will also cover a balanced sequence of seated and restorative poses to reap all of the benefits of an detoxifying twist and inversions practice.

This workshop will be held January 2019. Please sign up for the Cascade Yoga Newsletter to be notified when it is scheduled and when pre-registration begins!
