The immune system prevents illness and promotes healing. The lymphatic system defends against pathogens and other foreign material. As with other systems of the body, yoga can support immunity in general as well as support people experiencing particular conditions.
Yoga can boost immune system functioning, supporting those with immune system disorders (e.g. HIV/AIDS and adrenal insufficiency).
Yoga can help foster healing from a wide range of illnesses (e.g. flu, auto-immune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer).
