Q&A Wednesday

Will yoga detox your body? (Q&A)

Today’s question comes down to this: Will yoga actually detox your body?

If you’ve ever walked past a yoga studio and seen advertisements for Detoxing Yoga Workshops, or if you’ve found some in your Google searching, you’ve probably wondered how this “detoxing” actually works.

How does yoga detox your body? Does it literally remove the “toxins” we supposedly have built up?

Do we sweat out those toxins when we take a challenging class?

What’s the deal?!

I thought the New Year is great timing for this question because of how many of us are looking for a detox after all the holiday madness.

Watch below to find out! Enjoy!

    I have a question for Q&A Wednesday. I am currently on Tier 2 of PBYP and was just wondering if this was enough to keep fit or would you suggest doing a little extra?

    Abbie 🙂

    I have not personally taken a “detox” class, but agree with you 100%!

    And I love the new music! 🙂

    I have a different (somewhat related) question as a possible Q and A. What do you think about hot yoga classes? Is this actually beneficial to the body, or is it a “yoga fad?” I recently heard a teacher say that heating a room over 95 degrees is like putting the body in an oven, and it does more harm than good. Is there truth to this?
