Detoxification with Beginner’s Yoga training

Waste products produce as per the availability of nutrition and its usage in the body. The different nutritional components convert into energy and end up as a waste. Now these wastes come out at different organs of the body at different timings of the day. Generally this output depends on energy utilization and environment. Here is the basic information for beginner of Yoga Teacher training.

S. No

Metabolic reaction



Cellular respiration leaves CO2



Heat from circulation removes water and salt at sweat glands



Lactic acid during anaerobic cellular respiration



Amino acids convert into Ammonia at liver



Ammonia convert into Urea at liver



Food & water convert into minerals and salts



Creatinine, Drugs, Hydrogen



¼ water, ¼ solid (undigested and unabsorbed food, intestinal secretions, mucous, bile pigments, bile salts, bacteria, leukocytes)



Here the common point of focus should be on the form of waste like; gas, vapor, liquid and solid. The gases are easy to come out through breathing, vapors comes out during intense practices, liquid takes little more time to comes out as urine, solids takes some more time to come out as feces. The time for excretions is based on the region of their formation, distance from formation to excretion point and energy expenditure. Output of the body is not comparably less than the internal composition which is of food intake, expenditure and the waste formation. The waste products inside slowly convert into dangerous material called as toxins. By the end of the day, biological rhythm will remove all theses wastes as urine & feces soon after long rest (Sleep). Hence the regular bowel activities are the signs of healthy life.

Yoga Practice and Detoxification:

These processes of excretion on a regular basis constitute the natural detoxification. Techniques like; relaxed and intense asana, pranayama, kriya, meditation, bandha and mudra are also similar to these processes of the body. Asana maximum for physical body, Pranayama maximum for gas exchanges, kriya for cleaning with water & salts balance, meditation for rejuvenation, bandha and mudra to understand the stamina. That is how Yoga is an ancient science and became lifestyle. Now is the situation to realize the relation of combining all these techniques for good health.

1.      Asana: encourages the energy conversion processes at liver (Heat, Liquid & Solid).

2.      Pranayama: reduces the minute ventilation and encourages parasympathetic nervous system at lungs (Gases). Hence much relaxed breathing removes CO2.

3.      Kriya: dilutes and removes the mucous, dead cells, extra materials (Solids).

4.      Meditation: Internal awareness gives a chance to observe the changes of all these practices. Adapting to those new changes can remove wrong notions and emotions. This is the process of mental detoxification.

5.      Mudra & Bandha: eases the observation ability.

Instead of one technique, the student has to practice all yoga techniques and get natural detoxification. So, attendance is the responsibility of a teacher who makes sure about the health and growth of the student. Hence the yoga training courses should not intend to just certification, but Intend to give an experience of Yoga lifestyle. Through Yoga courses, one can taste the Yoga life which can be taken forward for self and for society.
