About The Event
An unhealthy thyroid can leave you feeling overwhelmed, rundown, depressed, and helpless. A little trouble-maker if not functioning properly, your thyroid is a tiny butterfly-shaped gland in your neck. Many thyroid glands weigh only an ounce, but— as I learned first-hand— wield formidable influence on our metabolism, mood, sleep, and life.
In this workshop. I will share self-care practices and a sequence of simple, yet effective, yoga postures and self-care practices that has helped me take charge of my well-being for the past 35 years, balancing my thyroid, relieving the many unbearable symptoms, and leaving me with vibrant health. Specifically designed to bring balance and vitality to the thyroid gland, each asana will be made accessible and effortless, so the healing effect is available to all. You will receive a handout of the demonstrated poses to assist with daily practice at home.
