July 2017 Live True Yoga Community News

Greetings!

This month we celebrate our freedom and independence. We all have the ability to free our minds by learning to slow down, breathe deeply, and detach from the chaos of our thoughts. When we are able to create more quiet and stillness, we are surrendering to our true self. There is a spirit that resides behind all of our thoughts and gives us energy when we connect to it. By tapping into our spirit, our true self, our God, we surrender to that which guides us. This is true freedom. 

From all of us at Live True Yoga, we wish you a very HAPPY AND FREE 4th of July!

Sending you lots of yoga love,

Spring is the season of renewal; a perfect time to shed toxins that have built up in your body over the long winter.

Check out the 8 simple ayurvedic essentials for your daily detox routine for a FRESH start this

Bringing ancient wisdom to modern life, these traditional tools make it easy to cleanse your body, mind, and soul.
In Ayurveda, spring is the season of renewal, an ideal time to shed toxins that build up during the winter months and start fresh. But regular detox rituals can help preserve health and balance throughout the year. Integrate these Ayurvedic practices into your daily routine to relax, rejuvenate, and get energized – every day.


1. Dry Brush
The Ayurvedic practice of dry brushing removes dead skin and is believed to stimulate circulation and the lymphatic system, which is important for cleansing and strengthening the immune system. Brush toward the heart to go with the body's natural direction of lymph flow.

Bernard Jensen Skin Brush, Natural Bristles With Long Handle, $10.99


2. Abhy Oil
Daily self-massage with warm oil, an ayurvedic practice known as an Abhyanga, is one of the best ways to restore balance of the doshas and push ama, or toxins, out of the tissues and into the digestive system for elimination.

Chopra Center Abhy Oil Collection, $69


3. Yogi Tea
While most herbal teas are known for their powerful antioxidant properties, those made with herbs like burdock and yellow dock also support liver detoxification and cleansing. Other cleansing herbs include red clover, milk thistle, dandelion root, and green rooibos.

Yogi Tea, Skin Detox, $4.99


4. Tongue Scraper
In ayurveda, tongue scraping is believed to rid the tongue of undigested ama, the underlying cause of many health issues. Scrape gently from back to front, using 7–14 strokes.

Chopra Center Tongue Cleaner, $6.95


5. Epsom salt
Soaking the feet in warm water with epsom salt can bring relaxation and rejuvenation to the entire body. Massaging them after soaking can also help reintegrate the subtle energy flowing between the upper and lower body.

Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salt Soaking Solution, $5.99


6. Spices
Not only do they add bold flavor to food, spices like black pepper, turmeric, coriander, cumin, ginger, and mustard seeds can improve digestion and help the body rid itself of toxins.


7. Neti Pot
Neti, the practice of nasal cleansing, has been used for thousands of years in ayurvedic medicine to alleviate sinus and allergy problems. The Neti Pot cleanses and protects the nasal passages, which in turn protect the body from illness.

Himilayan Institute Ceramic Neti Pot, $16.95


8. Journal
In Ayurveda, detoxification is a holistic practice, cleansing both body and mind. Writing in a journal can serve as a vehicle for self-reflection, emotional release, and mental purification.

Papyrus Mumbai Journal, $25
