Yin yoga is an excellent suggestion -- but observe the energetic effect as the month goes on -- a balanced practice is best, as excess forward bending can have a cooling, quieting, even depressing effect; excess backbends can be heating, energizing, even irritating.
For excellent descriptions of asanas and their effects see BKS Iyengar: Light on Yoga.

Namaste to all,
as some of you might know, today (21st) is the first day of the fasting month for the Muslims. I've mentioned before that I do not wish to give up doing yoga during this month. A lot of people had suggested doing Yin Yoga which I agree. But what other asanas would you suggest for detoxification and for the digestive system while fasting.
I'm hoping to be able to do my own sequence. =)
Its more than just vanity.
Its not about being slim, its about being healthy.
