I have always loved any form of movement. As a Dance and Hatha Yoga teacher I feel passionate about the fact that you should keep moving. The heart pumps and allows blood to circulate through the body making sure that the cells receive oxygen and nutrients. The toxins release via the lymphatic system, but this system has no pump. The lymph is only stimulated through a nutritious diet and movement. I love to compare the body and all its intricate systems with that of a river. The movement and flow of the water prevents anything from becoming clogged therefor movement forms a big part of a healthy lifestyle.
Yoga is a science of health. The ancient yogis believed that you are as old as your spine. Hatha yoga refers to a set of physical exercises (known as asanas or postures),breathing control and relaxation techniques. Sequences of asanas are designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. The postures are also designed to open the many channels of the body—especially the main channel, the spine—so that energy can flow freely and ensure a balanced mind, body and spirit. Moving with steadiness and ease your breath acts as the bridge between body and mind, ultimately stilling the mind. When we learn to manage our minds we let go of our perceptions of the world and ourselves.
Join a yoga or a dance class or any form of movement and get moving. This instantly stimulates your lymphatic system and allows your mind and body to detox.
You can join my Hatha Yoga classes if you live in or around the Durbanville area - a Northern Suburb of Cape Town.
