In many ways, the immune system is the most remarkable system in the body given its discriminating intelligence known in Sanskrit as viveka. And we could say that having a strong immune system is in many regards the ultimate aim of a yoga practice. Yet there are times when the immune system attacks itself, compromising the healthy cells and tissues of the body and causing fatigue, inflammation and bodily tenderness. In this course, we will review the primary role of the lymphatic system in maintaining health.
Through practice we will discover how through somatic movement, postural yoga, and meditation, we can help build a radiant immune system. We use specific restorative positions to counter the debilitating effects of autoimmune syndromes such as Hashimoto’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Multiple Sclerosis.
