Detox Yoga Posture of the Month

Detox Yoga Posture of the Month

No need to suffer through a juice cure to Detox this spring!

Here is the perfect twist to help you get the toxins out!

Ardha Matsyendrasana – Half Spinal Twist


  • Start in a seated position with the legs extended in front of you.
  • Adjust the legs so that you can sit evenly on the sitting bones keeping the back straight.
  • Cross one foot over the opposite thigh and place it on the floor outside the  knee.
  • On the exhale, bring the elbow outside of the opposite knee.
  • In this posture, keep in mind that both sitting bones need to touch the ground. The foot of the bended leg also needs to be flat of the floor.
  • To increase the twist, bring your gaze above your shoulder.
  • If you have trouble keeping the correct alignment while bending both knees, don’t hesitate to keep the leg extended.
  • To balance the body, make sure to twist in both directions.
  • Hold the posture for 5 long breaths.



  • This asana increases the mobility of the hips and the spine.
  • Helps to reduce tensions of the back muscles.
  • Detoxifies the organs and tissues from toxins by stimulating the circulatory, digestive and lymphatic systems.
  • Highly recommended to relieve sciatica.
  • Stimulates liver, heart, lungs, kidneys and spleen.
