The Lymphatic System, an important part of the Vascular and Immune System, relies on movements of the muscles and other vibrations within the body to transport and remove cellular matter for internal balance of fluid. Yoga supports decongestion through practice of whole body movements, breathing, and alignment techniques to support healthy circulation and waste removal.
