Fall Immune Boosting Workshop

Want to avoid those winter cold and flu viruses? Are seasonal allergies making an appearance? Would you like to feel less tired and sluggish? Is chronic inflammation or fluid stagnation creating swelling/soreness/stiffness in the body?

If you are interested in learning how to help prevent or alleviate any of the above conditions, or if you are simply curious about how to optimize the performance of your immune system, please join Margie Terrell as she leads this timely, not to be missed workshop!

In this workshop, we will learn how to use the body’s biggest drain, the lymphatic system, to improve immune system functionality. The lecture portion will include information about the body’s 4 basic pumps and how to use yoga to activate these pumps to help flush out the lymphatic system for optimal immune support. We will also learn practical ways to involve our skin in aiding with lymphatic flow. We will learn the 3 main causes of lymph stagnation. There will also be discussion and a handout on various foods, supplements, actions to take to keep the immune system highly functional during this most fragile time of the year.

This 2 hour workshop includes lecture, asana practice, breathing practice, discussion, Q&A time, and a handout.
