Our bodies are best equipped to repair, rejuvenate and heal when we are rested and relaxed. This seminar is designed to accomplish two main goals: to discuss boosting & strengthening our immune system and to practice various relaxation techniques using meditation, breathwork and guided imagery. You can expect to learn cutting edge immune boosting strategies and experience a sense of restful bliss.
Meditation induces the relaxation response, which helps lower blood pressure, and improves heart rate, breathing, and brain waves. Breathwork elicits activation of the vagus nerve, which turns on the relaxation response. Many studies suggest that guided imagery can reduce stress and elevate the immune system. “The Effects of Guided Imagery on the Immune System: a Critical Review.” Ephraim C. Trankhtenberg.
