BREATHE, TWIST & SWIRL YOUR WAY INTO 2016
If you over-enjoyed yourself during the holidays: congratulations! Part of being a good yogi is engaging with all of the Rasas—tasting their sweetness and assimilating their potency. If in this new year you feel you spent a little much time in Adbhuta (Wondrous) or Hasya (Comic,) it may be time to harness a little Vira (Heroic) or Karuna (Compassionate) energy and build more balance into your 2016 habits. Does one of your resolutions focus on health and wellness? Why not get things underway with a detox yoga workshop? It is true that your body has an innate intelligence—your liver and kidneys “detox” every day—but you can boost this process by practicing Kriyas, twists, and specific pranayama techniques.
