Detox Yoga Routine Part 3: Reconnect & Sprout (open level)
This open detox Yogea flow is the third of a series of three purifying routines that can be practiced sequentially or independently from one another.
This sequence abounds with twists that oxygenate the brain and detoxify the body. The introductory part incorporates dynamic meditation from the Tai-chi Chuan martial arts tradition in an attempt to promote a healthy grounding and softening of the musculature of the spine, while harnessing the potency of Qi- or Prana that vibrates in all matter. Practitioners are guided into a wide-open steady stance when they can feel the action of rooting from the feet and creating space in the pelvic floor and lower abdominal area. Then, deep twists are introduced to start awaken the natural detox mechanism of the body. The Yoga routine flows into a dynamic warm-up that utilizes forward bends, abdominal toners, subtle hip-openers, lunges and backbends to open the front of the body, lubricate the ball and socket joints and prepare the long ligaments for deeper hamstring, Achilles tendon stretches and abdominal twists. The sequence cultivates the art of mindful transitioning, guiding the body into seamless shifts and the mind into a state of tranquil lucidity. The cooling down earths the body back into its divine presence and provides space for reconnecting with all that is dormant within and manifests without.
