Yoga for Immune Health with Lisa Walford

This is where the subhead goes where we talk about how you need to do your research and two other things

Fall doesn’t just mean pumpkin spice lattes. It means that you will likely start to hear a cacophony of sniffles and coughs when you’re ordering said pumpkin spice latte — or wherever you go. It’s a great time to thinking about your yoga practice as a tool for building resilience and boosting your immune health.

Iyengar Yoga teacher Lisa Walford joins me this week to talk about her approach to yoga for immune health. She shares ideas for how to use asana, pranayama, and meditation as part of your support system. She also shares how a diagnosis of HIV in 1985 not only challenged her, but ultimately helped her understand her own immune health more intimately.

This conversation is a beautiful reminder of the many ways that yoga can help us to heal when we start from a place of care and attention.
