When most people hear the word “detox,” they think of cleaning up their diet, but another great way to rid your body of toxins is through exercise. And it’s not all about sweat: When you engage in physical activity, your circulation increases, which in turn activates your lymphatic system, a network of vessels that filter waste products out of the body.
Any type of exercise can spur this process, but yoga enhances it by incorporating folding and twisting movements, which gently massage your organs and increase blood flow, says yoga instructor Seane Corn. “The deeper you breathe, the more opportunity you have to release residual toxicity [as carbon dioxide],” says Corn.
She notes that while no single yoga pose will deliver magical detoxifying effects, a consistent yoga practice can powerfully support lymph-system activity.
