Your lymphatic system plays an essential role in healthy immunity, circulation, and detoxification. This class aims to encourage the flow of lymph in your body through the use of props, breathwork, and a series of dynamic pumping movements.

Props Needed: A therapy or tennis ball. Props Suggested: A blanket and a bolster.
