Practical health and wellness strategies from Laura Imparato, creator of the I.AM.YOU yoga studio
Rest to rage. Meditate to work. Cleanse to get dirty.
Enough preaching about self-deprivation. No more striving for bodily purity. Who has the patience—or the time!—for strict dietary restrictions and hours of meditation? Let’s get real; these tactics just don’t work—at least not for long. But that doesn’t mean health and happiness are unobtainable.
Most often you just need an anxiety buster you can do while running down the street, a yoga pose you can do at your desk, or a way to debloat what feels like an alien baby in your abdomen. Retox isn’t about changing who you are or denying life’s pleasures; it’s about tailoring sensible, scientifically based health practices to the life you already live; it’s about working hard, playing harder, and renewing your balance and energy so you can do it all again.
In Retox, health expert Lauren Imparato strips yoga down to its anatomical principles, offering practical tips for fast relief. Then, drawing from a variety of disciplines—from psychology to nutrition to Tibetan philosophy—she designs no-nonsense strategies and delicious recipes to combat the most common challenges of modern life:
• stress and anxiety,
• low energy,
• back pain and headaches,
• sleep deprivation, and
• much more.
“With a deep understanding of anatomy and physiology, in Retox, Lauren writes a fun and entertaining book that shows both students and instructors ways to maximize the value of yoga.”—Francis X. Mendoza, orthopedic surgeon
