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.

Ramadan Mubarak!

Hi!

Twists are considered detoxifying because they squeeze the internal organs, helping to remove waste.

Namaste,

Irene

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. =)

Thanks all!

Its more than just vanity.
Its not about being slim, its about being healthy.
