In the spring when the sun is shining, after winter hibernation, lush rosebush leaves appear and their buds begging to form. If the groundwater that they have been taking in through their root system is loaded with toxins, the flowers will lack radiant energy -- and look fatigued. If this happens to you -- take time to stop and smell the roses.
Taking your time to transition into the cleansing routine is important. You will find the yoga diet component of the practice to be a good motivator for making fresh and lasting changes in your life.
Just like flowers, we humans absorb toxins trough food, water, and air. Our digestive, endocrine, and circulatory systems are a complex set of mechanisms designed to eliminate toxins through the mouth, eyes, skin, colon, urinary tract, and breath. Too much sugar, caffeine, and processed foods, along very little exercise and a lot of stress, can slow the down the body's natural detoxification function, creating a felling of fatigue. Practicing cleansing yoga sequences and eating a simple plant-based diet can help boost the body's natural detoxification function; helping you to flower and be in full-bloom again!
Yoga sequences that support the natural detoxification process increase circulation, compress internal organs with twisting, facilitate relaxation, and promote good digestion by helping with elimination; to remove the rubbish.
"It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses we must plant more trees" --George Eliot
