Yoga Month Challenge

Week 2: Twists

By Esther Ekhart, Esther Teule

Detox your body and mind

Create space in your organs, detoxifying through digesting emotions and experiences. Restore motion in your spine and stimulate your digestion. Twisting your way to relaxation :)

We will also work on your core.. helping you to sweat and cleanse  on all levels of your being.

  • Suggested schedule

    This program is all about establishing a regular practice so we recommend that you practice the daily schedule suggested. However it's really up to you.

    If you decide not to follow the full schedule, try to practice at least three times a week. If you decide to do this then we recommend that you follow day 1, 3 and 5. 

    Enjoy!
