This class from Gina Caputo focuses on stimulating and stretching the major lymph node sites, including the areas of our chest, neck, armpit, and groin. This class will also focus on the spleen, another important lymphoid organ, which is considered a crucial meridian in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Within our bodies, our lymphatic system circulates plasma, transports white blood cells to fight infection, and moves toxins and diseased cells to the lymph nodes for destruction and drainage. Exercises such as yoga are important in lymphatic maintenance, as the circulation and the functioning of the lymphatic system is facilitated by contractions of the muscles. This is an excellent practice for keeping your immune function strong and your body feeling tip-top.
