Love Your Lymph: Improving Lymphatic Health Through “Lymph Flow Yoga”

July 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

Balance the vital life force energy that flows through all living things! A healthy lymphatic system is a key ingredient in digestive, immune, and mental health, and especially important to those with compromised immune systems. As a certified lymphedema therapist, occupational therapist and yoga instructor, Babz will help us understand the system of beautiful lymphatic rivers flowing through our bodies, and how to improve lymphatic health through yoga that focuses on deep breathing, self manual lymph drainage, muscle pump activation, and mindfulness.  

Come ready to learn, and practice an accessible, gentle chair lymph flow sequence for the whole body. Please note: self manual lymph drainage is contraindicated for those with acute cardiac conditions or those managing acute infection.
