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.
