    Practical health and wellness strategies for real life from Lauren Imparato, creator of the I.AM.YOU. lifestyle brand and 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. Or 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
    - Hangovers
    - PMS
    - Sleep Deprivation
    - And much more...

    Change the way you sit in 28 days for health, energy and longevity

    We live increasingly sedentary lives and our lifestyle has radically changed in terms of how we work and naturally move throughout our day. While we all know about the benefits of exercise for mental and physical health, what we're not so attuned to are the damaging effects of just how we sit - at our desks, scrolling on our phones, in the car or even on our bicycles.

    But it doesn't have to be this way. By making small changes to our everyday sitting behavior, we can experience increased energy, confidence, optimism and openness.

    Featuring a practical 28-day plan to transform your relationship with sitting, how long you sit at a time, how to add simple breath work and movement into your day and restorative moves for the end of the day.

    Sit up, sit better and reap the benefits.

    More Info

    Skill in Action: Radicalizing Your Yoga Practice to Create a Just World will ask you to explore the deeply transformational practice of yoga, and to become a social change agent so that you can create a world that is just for all. This book explores liberation for ourselves and others, while asking us to engage in our own agency, whether that manifests as activism, volunteer work, or changing our relationships with others and ourselves.

    Skill in Action clearly defines power and privilege, oppression, liberation, and suffering, and will invite you to take steps to make changes in your life to create a world that allows all of us to be free. The end of each chapter includes a sample practice so that you can put this wisdom into action in your daily life. These sample practices include breathwork, asana, meditation and interpersonal relational work.

    In an effort to move toward liberation for all, the practices extend beyond the individual to offer resources and tools to shift institutional policies and procedures in a culture that has left all of us negatively impacted by white supremacy.

    It is my hope that Skill in Action calls you and your community to take action and to not become complicit via complacency. It asks that we take the powerful practice of yoga and use it to create a world that makes space for all, that values all and that speaks truth to power.
