The Yoga Cleanse

Miami-Spa Secrets

As we know the body tends to accumulate toxins that end up stored in our muscles. Said toxins can make us feel lethargic, heavy and low on pep. What to do? Yoga. Most forms of vigorous exercise stimulate all three systems of elimination (circulatory, digestive and lymph) to some extent, thereby helping the body in its quest to cleanse and detox. But yoga, with the added bonus of calming the mind and nervous system takes the detox one step further, keeping the waste-removal departments of the body functioning at their best.

You should feel as perfect as this picture looks

Try some gentle twist poses or one of our favorite detox position — headstand eagle pose — in your living room, office, the beach, (anywhere, really) to unleash energy-depleting toxins.

Other means to detox through yoga? Try our Warm Yoga, inspired by Bikram, in our toasty Hamam.. Restore and renew yourself as the body sweats out stress and toxins. A Standard Spa, Miami Beach favorite, our Warm Yoga class increases circulation and flexibility so the body can heal, replenish faster and melt away nervous tension.
