While yoga is a great way to stretch your hamstrings and open up your back, it's also a great way to get stronger.
Yoga twists in particular are a great way to flex and tone your abs. Even better, twists remove toxins from your body. Like a sponge squeezing out soap, twisting a yoga pose helps your internal organs do their job of cleansing and healthfully maintaining your body.
To maximize toning your abs while you detoxify, get into each core pose first. From there, inhale deeply and exhale into the twist by pulling your belly button in toward your spine. Hold each twist for five to ten slow, deep breaths. Back out of each twist by reversing the steps, then begin again on the other side. Spend an equal amount of time on each side to create balance in your body.
Ready? It’s time to get twisted!
