Yoga and detox go hand in hand. The word ‘yoga’ means ‘union’ – hence, yoga helps to bring union or balance to your whole being; bringing harmony to mind, body and spirit. It helps to bring your body into alignment, improves circulation and encourages the elimination of toxins.
Yair has been our yoga teaching yoga for detoxification since we first started running retreats and he has developed his yoga specifically to support you in the detox process. You don’t need to have had any previous experience to enjoy the classes; it’s a relaxing and fun way to start the detox day and you’ll feel the wonderful benefits as the week progresses.
Yoga for detoxification uses gentle stretching postures, relaxing the muscles and joints. Specific postures are used which massage the internal organs, ensuring optimum blood supply to all parts of the body. You will also learn breathing techniques that help to bring more oxygen to the lungs which in turn assists in the removal of cellular waste and toxic matter.
Our Yoga Teacher – Tasha Saha
Tasha Saha has been a practioner of Hatha Yoga for more than 10 years and is the resident Yoga Instructor at Fordoun Spa in the Natal Midlands. Her classes offer a gentle, supportive environment in which participants may foster a deeper awareness and sympathetic understanding of the self.
Individual Yoga Therapy with Tasha
During the retreat, Tasha also offers individual yoga classes. This allows her to adapt the yoga postures to suit your particular need and ability, whilst also taking into account individual health challenges. It can help you on other levels too, since there is a link between our posture and our emotions, and through this type of individual yoga work, the emotional patterns which shaped the body can be healed. After the session, Tasha will prescribe yoga postures, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques tailored to your specific needs. You will be given a personal yoga practice to continue with at home. (Please note: the individual therapy is an additional cost ). The daily group yoga classes are included in the price of the retreat.
