The practice invites awareness into the body and activates muscles that help you find length up through the spine for better posture and energy flow. If you are new to yoga, have difficulty getting down to the floor, experience pain in your muscles or joints, loss of energy, or balance issues due to peripheral neuropathy, this class is for you. Also included a gentle self-manual lymph drainage massage to help stimulate the lymphatic system (an important component of the immune system). Self-manual massage of hands and using a massage ball for feet to help with symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are shown.
