“Thank you to Yoga U and to Tias Little for his excellent course Yoga for Lymphatic Health. Once again Tias’s course was so well presented, informative and interesting. I’m so grateful these teachings are offered to those of us who are unable to attend in person.” -Vanessa B.
Feeling sluggish after the long winter? Or do you suffer from low energy, lack of well-being, or frequent colds and infections? It may be time to tune up your lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is the body’s ‘garbage’ collector. It removes metabolic waste and toxins from the intercellular fluid, making it vital for cellular health.
Many people have badly congested lymphatics without knowing it, particularly during and after the winter season, when most tend to stay inside and get less physical activity. Symptoms include fatigue, mood swings, depression, headaches, obesity, and more.
In this two-part online course, renowned yoga teacher Tias Little goes into details with how to target our yoga practice to strengthen lymphatic functioning and the cleansing organs.
Healthy lymph circulation is essential for immune function, and having a strong defense system and strong immunity is in many regards the ultimate aim of a yoga practice.
Tias will review how yoga postures can create a healthy and radiant immune system. He reviews the primary function of the lymphatic system and shows how specific yoga poses aid in the irrigation of lymph throughout the body.
We will explore how yoga practice that includes not only the practice of postures, but meditation and chanting work as preventative medicine, particularly for improving energy, and warding off flu and respiratory tract infections.
Tias will also review the ways that meditation, metta practice, pranayama and chanting help build “psychic immunity.” In particular we investigate how negative emotion compromises immunity.
