Overview
Practical health and wellness strategies 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 "

Certified yoga teacher Imparato quit her job as a Morgan Stanley v-p to create I Am You, a Manhattan yoga studio and wellness lifestyle brand. Her book offers ways to deal healthfully and mindfully with 20 topics pertinent to challenging, fast-paced times, including headaches, back pain, travel, sleep, tech addiction, and eliminating abdominal bloating through methods Imparato terms alien baby debloat. For each conundrum, Imparato offers quick fixes, a longer yoga sequence (illustrated with thumbnail photos), nutrition advice, recipes, and mindset advice (i.e., meditation techniques). Imparatos vinyasa yoga style is anatomy-based and fluid. Shes a proponent of eating according to ones individual preferences and asserts that coffee is not the enemy, nor is beef, pizza, or the occasional alcoholic beverage. The recipes included here are heavy on greens, as well as being quick and easy to make, and will clearly appeal to busy and overscheduled readers. Imparato also fills her book with personal anecdotes, Tibetan philosophy, and attractive black-and-white photos. Yoga practitioners hoping to ramp up their practice will appreciate Imparatos no-nonsense yet enthusiastic style. The easy-to-use format gives readers the option of either zeroing in on a particular problem and its accompanying yoga sequence, or of savoring this lively book in its entirety.
