Yippee! Here comes Spring!

trees Gosh I love this time of year. The days are heating up, the flowers are starting to bloom and there is certainly a spring in my step as I excitedly look forward to summer. Spring is a time of new beginnings, of rebirth and of cleansing. It is the time to undo all the habits we created over winter and prepare ourselves by harnessing all the energy we need in preparation for the high activity of summer. Spring, the season of action is the ultimate time for a detox - Here are my top five tips for a healthy transition in to Spring - try them - they really do work!

1) Yoga of course! Create a daily routine starting with five rounds of Sun Salutations followed by these detoxing poses. Laying down twists which are wonderfully detoxing and cleansing for the organs. Happy Baby Pose helps encourage the outward flow of waste and acid in the body.  Bow Pose encourages elimination and also  puts pressure on the liver which encourages blood flow and cleansing, Finally, a shoulder stand or legs up the wall; inversions flush the blood and organs (and as an added bonus they are said to make you look younger too!)

2) Keep your fluids high. Start each day with a big glass of warm water and lemon and keep it up through the day to flush the system.  Where possible give your digestive system a break by eating soups or drinking smoothies for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  Even better than this would be to take 1-3 days out for you to do a Juice Cleanse. When your body doesn’t have to work so hard to digest it uses the energy for other things such as detoxing the skin and liver.

3) Body Brushing. Brushing the skin with a natural body brush before you shower encourages circulation through your largest organ – The Skin. This creates the space for your toxins to leave the body and will help you gain that summer glow!

4) Ditch the coffee and drink Green Tea instead. As someone who doesn’t enjoy the taste of green tea I would recommend combining one tea spoon of Green Tea with one tea spoon of Peppermint Tea (or of each tea bags in to a pot) to make it more drinkable. You’ll still get the caffeine so won’t suffer withdrawal symptoms and the caffeine will last longer because it is slow release instead of the ‘hit’. Green Tea is also said to detox free radicals and slow the aging process (yay for that!).

5) Attend Mark Obrien’s Spring Masterclass on September. Mark will guide your through a yoga asana and pranayama sequence designed to help balance out the sluggish Kapha nature of winter by stimulating your Udana Vayu (up lifting energy) through specially designed Yoga Asana and Pranayama. Book Here
