Research has shown that mindfulness, meditation and yoga practices have the ability to positively impact specific autoimmune biomarkers in certain autoimmune diseases. In this 100 hour online workshop (taken over one year, synchronous & asynchronous, online), Marcie Evans, MA, ACSM, IAYT CYT, TIYT, BCES will share how yoga, Ayurveda, and mindfulness can powerfully influence autoimmune biomarkers, body system processes, general well-being, emotional health, and healing related to autoimmune flare-ups. This workshop will review concepts of well-being and health through the lens of her own experience in the healing process and the yoga practices associated with potentially healing autoimmune symptoms. She will also include in the workshop how chronic stress and trauma influence our health, potentially contributing to chronic illness and dysfunction of all body systems as well as the influence of the vagus nerve and vagal toning on healing. A yoga background is not required for this workshop, just a strong desire to learn about the healing potential of yoga and Ayurveda.
