  • Gentle Joint Mobilisation for Times of Sickness26:52
    Gentle Joint Mobilisation for Times of Sickness

    Barbara Gallani

    When we’re unwell or under the weather, we’re unable to move in the ways we normally do and during periods of sickness often our joints can be painful. But staying immobile impedes recovery and can increase joint pain. It’s crucial that when we’re unwell, we learn to mobilise our joints very gently. This yoga class is a really gentle way to start moving and mobilising your joints to reduce pain, reduce inflammation and get you on the road to recovery. Although we recommend you take very gentle movements when you’re not feeling great, please seek your doctor’s advice if you are in any doubt.

  • Yoga for the Immune System26:01
    Yoga for the Immune System

    Barbara Gallani

    The focus of this yoga class is to support the immune system. In health, as in illness, it is important to stimulate lymphatic flow through slow movements of the arms and legs and gentle twists, in combination with deep and regular breathing. As the lymphatic system has no organ to pump the lymph around the body, it is important to use movement and breathing to keep the immune system active. Although we recommend you take very gentle movements when you’re not feeling great, please seek your doctor’s advice if you are in any doubt.
