Yoga Therapy for Endocrine & Immune System Disorders -ONLINE

THE MODULE 

What causes imbalances in the hormonal system and what are the origins of pathological physiological reactions in auto-immune disorders?

At the Yoga Therapy for Endocrine & Immune System Disorders module, you will learn how Yoga Therapy can help support conventional treatments for hormonal and auto-immune diseases such as Hypothyroidism, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Lupus, amongst others.

You will also learn about the immune response to viral infections and the process behind cytokine storms, with specific reference to the current information available on Covid-19.

Knowledge of the modifications and contraindications for the hormonal system are of vital importance in Yoga Therapy, as well as an awareness of the emotional support required, during flair-ups, for those who suffer from these common health problems.
