LaGrange Yoga offers free at-home workouts
As we enter into the second month of our COVID-19 gym shutdown, we at LaGrange Yoga are continuing to do our best to bring each of you videos and FB Live Classes. We know it’s not the same as being in the gym/studio with everyone – because after all, working out with friends is part of the experience – but we also know this will not last forever.
This week, two more FREE videos are available for you to use in your home.
Also, please be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel (Jeannette Benjamin – remember two Ns in Jeannette).
This way you will receive a notification when a new video is posted!
YOGA FOR IMMUNITY – https://youtu.be/jiwsQevBrGQ
Need: Small Couch Pillow
This series of poses is designed to activate the lymphatic system. Lymph is a fluid that flows through the body helping to detox and build up immunity. It travels via pathways, similar to our blood traveling through our veins. However, the lymphatic system has no pumping mechanism, like blood which has the heart. So it is dependent upon the body’s physical movement.
Poses in this series will all be familiar to you if you regularly practice yoga with me. Focus will be on the neck, across the chest, into the inner arms/armpits, side body and legs, all areas where lymph flows. There are a lot of side bends and lunges as well as a few restful poses. Ruby (the wonder dog and LaGrange Yoga mascot now) does make a brief cameo near the end.
(I apologize that the lighting isn’t perfect and that my head isn’t always in the screen! But again, this video is a gift to you. I am doing the best that I can and I hope that you are too!)
