Lymphatic yoga is a mindful movement practice with a focus on improving lymphatic health through guided self-manual lymph drainage (MLD), emphasis on breath work, awareness of the lymph pathways, and the use of muscle pumps to assist lymph flow to cleanse and clear the mind and body.
Improving lymphatic health is a great way to also improve your digestive, immune, and mental health. Lymphatic draining can reduce bloating, release excess fluid in the body, and balance the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Understanding the pathways and body map of the beautiful lymphatic rivers running through our bodies allows us to encourage physical and mental relief and restoration. Fluid = Energy
What to expect:
Class will begin with an educational discussion on the lymphatic system. You will then be guided through a step by step self-manual lymph drainage massage. Class will then transition to a gentle lymphatic yoga flow practice (for all levels).
How to prepare:
Bring a mat, make sure your face/hands are clean (we’ll be touching our face/neck), wear comfortable clothing that allows you to freely touch your chest and neck.
