Cleanse with a Bath

A bath can be very cleansing. I encourage you to give yourself the opportunity to detoxify with a nice bath this weekend.

You bring your yoga practice (union of mind, body and spirit) into the bath with your breath and ability to be present to your current experience (not being stuck in the past or lost in the future). Let this great bath recipe be my gift to you:
  • In a tub filled with hot water, add 1/4 cup sea salt and 1/4 cup baking soda.
  • You may add 1-3 drops of an essential oil to bring aromatherapy to your experience.
  • Soak for 10 minutes (no more).
  • Allow your breath to be full and balanced.
  • After drying off, rest. Take it easy for a few hours.
  • Drink lots of water or coconut water to re-hydrate.
