Did you (will you) over eat over the Holiday? Detoxify your body and soul with Yoga Twists.

Did you over eat over the Holiday?  Detoxify your body and soul with Yoga Twists.

Twists are great!  They help digestion; they clean and detoxify your internal organs.  They help stretch and strengthen the spine.

Start with a few minutes of centering, perhaps thinking of all you have to be grateful for.

Set an Intention, Mantra or Affirmation for your practice.

You can try this Affirmation:

“Each day, I automatically and successfully get healthier and healthier”
