This video is an easy to understand users guide to your own physiology! It will help you understand the interrelated processes of the lymphatic system, circulatory and immune systems in a healthy body. Through the yogic lens of prana and apana, and sukha and sthira, you’ll come to see how each of your 90 trillion cells receives nutrients, is cleansed of toxins and is protected from invaders such as viruses, bacteria and cancer cells.
You’ll then learn how common conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, chronic stress and a sedentary lifestyle disrupt the body’s homeostasis at the cellular level and lead to lymphedema. Lymphedema in turn can lead to neuropathy, fatigue, nerve damage, toxicity, reduced immune function and hormonal imbalances. The best part of understanding all this is knowing how to help! Let Soul Yoga Therapy show you how to address these dis-ease states with the powerful tools of yoga therapy.
After this workshop you’ll understand:
– The interrelated physiology of the circulatory and lymphatic systems,
– How cells receive nutrients and are cleansed of toxins,
– The role of the lymphatic system and lymph nodes in the immune system,
– The yogic concepts of Prana & Apana and Sukha & Sthira,
