Coming at Your Immune System from a Different Angle – LITERALLY!

 

I am hearing how important it is to relax and not stress out.  That can be easier said than done.  In today’s hour-long yoga class, we’ll apply some simple, yet perhaps unusual techniques to work with the cranial nerves that come together at the brainstem.  Working in this way can induce a physiological response which promotes a calming response in our nervous system.

 

As an added benefit, by destressing your mind, you’ll be able to think and problem-solve more efficiently.  You may have noticed that we don’t always make the best decisions when we’re stressed.

Mindful Moments

Mindfulness Moments:  Breathing into Anxiety

 

Getting news updates throughout the day can have a negative effect on our nervous system steering one toward anxiety. This “social virus” does not heed the 6′ rule.

 

Dr. Jud Brewer, addiction psychiatrist and neuro-researcher used the metaphor of strolling through the crowded social news media streets as akin to being socially-sneezed on. Unfortunately, your immune system takes a hit from this not-so-metaphorical social virus.

 

In today’s 4 min. Mindful Moment, I offer a technique that helps simultaneously dissolve that unnecessary tension and reground into the steadiness of being in your body – whenever and wherever.

 

Click here to try this technique out in my 4 min. video.

YogAwareness Films Presents: “Building Resilience for a Healthy Immune System”

Your lymphatic system helps defend your body from infections.  It has no pump of it’s own and requires movement to keep it’s fluids flowing.   If you’re sitting more than usual, take 30 minutes to get that stagnant fluid flowing again with this special immune boosting yoga sequence.    It’s appropriate whether you are new to yoga or are a long-time practitioner. No special props required.

May all beings be healthy, resilient, and kind to all beings and the Earth herself in every imaginable way!
