Look and feel slimmer after just one hour of this Detox Flow class at Pure Yoga.
What if the extra weight you’re carrying around is not all due to fat, but also *gulp* water retention?
You may think that water retention happens only to sodium lovers and pregnant women, but the truth is, most of us have some form of puffiness – whether it’s in the face, arms or legs.
We tend to feel bloated in the few days leading up to our periods. Those on birth control pills and certain types of medication may experience more fluid retention than usual. Sitting or standing for prolonged periods also causes your legs and ankles to swell.
While we all know that the key to reducing water retention is to move more and drink lots of H2O, there’s one super effective thing you can do to get rid of puffiness, pronto: Join the Detox Flow class at Pure Yoga.
It takes just one hour. Plus, you get to burn calories while improving strength, balance, stamina and flexibility, as well as tone your whole body.
Detox Flow at Pure Yoga
Conducted in a heated room, Detox Flow is a yoga class that focuses on stimulating the digestive system to help the body detox. In one hour, you’ll do a sun salutation-type sequence that involves lots of twisting, bending and stretching poses that massage the digestive organs.
Think bow pose, revolved chair pose, revolved side angle pose, and plenty of forward folds. The poses are effective yet beginner-friendly. Even if you’re fairly new to yoga, you’ll be able to keep up.
Prayanama (breathing exercises), chanting and meditation may be included in this class, but not full inversions. The focus here is to move fluidly from pose to pose.
Expect to sweat buckets (bye toxins!), as the yoga flow is fast-paced and will elevate your heart rate within minutes. At 35 to 38 deg C, the room temperature is ideal for warming up your muscles and letting you break a sweat without feeling light-headed. It feels much more comfortable than in a Bikram yoga studio.
Thanks to all the twisting and bending movements, you might find yourself wanting to fart or burp during the class. No judgment!
Make sure to increase your water intake before and after class. Post-workout, you will feel like peeing more often – perfectly normal, by the way. Urinating is one of the best ways to detox, as it flushes out waste and excess fluids in your body.
If you often feel bloated or constipated, you’ll be glad to know that the poses in this Detox Flow class will improve digestion and get those bowels moving too!
The Detox Flow class is available at all Pure Yoga studios: Asia Square Tower 2, Ngee Ann City, Chevron House and Suntec City (opening in Q2 2018). For a trial class, visit bit.ly/pureyoga-trial.
