Gentle yoga for Immune system

For today’s offering I have a gentle yoga routine to help support your immune system. Complete with side bends, forward bends, neck stretches, chest expansion, inner leg stretches and relaxing inversions, these postures massage and assist lymph drainage. Chest tapping stimulates the thymus gland, responsible for transforming lymphocytes (white blood cells made in the bone marrow) into T cells which play an important part in fighting diseases and infection.

The video is less than 5 minutes long, though you can certainly spend a little more time in each pose-as long as you are feeling comfortable and safe. ***Remember to breathe, be gentle and listen to your body!***

In wellness and love,

Janina
