We're super excited about our monthly Community Acupuncture collaboration with Owen McPeake, a practitioner from Flat Rock Health in Manayunk & the Vincera Institute. Every second Wednesday starting November 13th, stay after the flow class or drop-in after, when we'll get comfortable in a supported savasana, turn the lights down & the heat up and invite acupuncture to rejuvenate, relax and recharge the body's energy. In Chinese thinking the concept of energy reserves is easily understood like a bank account.
If you have decided to embark on a cleanse this week or in the near future, make sure that you factor in some self-care practices. Even if you know that there will be a benefit to taking a break from the foods that you crave, the moment of abstinence can be very challenging. These practices can pamper, replenish, reward and enhance your fall detoxification.
Many types of physical exercise can help detoxify the body, stimulating the circulatory, digestive and lymphatic systems. A physical practice of yoga postures, or asana, can be especially beneficial if it is designed to stimulate all three of these systems. In a comprehensive practice, the musculature of the whole body is contracted, compressed and stretched, which helps remove carbon dioxide, lactic acid and lymphatic fluid. There are certain asana that are designed to stimulate digestive organs or ease the work of the circulatory and lymphatic systems.
