Stress Reduction and Exercise

I spoke to 2 college strategies classes last week about stress reduction in relation to exercise.  I want to share a section of my presentation.  Below is a segment from the Yoga Journal that projects 1 of their 38 ways “Yoga Keeps You Fit.”

“When you contract and stretch muscles, move organs around, and come in and out of yoga postures, you increase the drainage of lymph (a viscous fluid rich in immune cells). This helps the lymphatic system fight infection, destroy cancerous cells, and dispose of the toxic waste products of cellular functioning.”  (http://www.yogajournal.com/health/1634)

Stretching really does make a difference.
