Workshop with Ruth Adam and Rebecca Sadler (workshop in English)
Saturday 6. April, 14:00-17:00 h
We all know that reducing stress, doing sports and eating well keep us healthy. But how is stress actually related to fighting disease? Can yoga protect us against the winter-flu?
In this workshop we will learn about the immune system and its subtypes as well as the inflammation process and the gut bacteria. We will then review the relationship between stress, the immune system and yoga practice.
Open questions where more research is needed will also be discussed.
The workshop will include related practices.
