Holism and Yoga

With Dr. Felicity Molloy

“The inescapable longing to be in a state of wellness is an inherent and fundamental influence on the actions any person takes” (Dukes, 2016, p. 1).

In this presentation, we will explore the concept of holism as it relates to wellness dimensions that are often described as the benefits of yoga en-action. Well-being is a term that is often used without too much thought; by drawing out dimensions of wellness such as emotional, intuitive, intellectual, mental, physical, and relational, we discuss how they become the well-being benefits of an enduring yoga practice.

Sanga July 2022

Your Lymphatic System – Insights from a Yoga practice

With Mary Goulter 


The lymphatic system is fundamental to our body’s capacity to heal and maintain health. “Until I had a major branch of my lymph nodes removed as part of my cancer treatment, I had very little awareness of the invisible work of this system, let alone how I could influence it.”

In this session Mary presents what she has learned through her own experience, study, and conversation with experts, about the role of the lymphatic system in the body. She discusses what having a major branch of lymph nodes removed has revealed about its functioning, and how her actions can help (and hinder!) its processes, mostly through a yoga practice. This lecture includes a simple lymphatic drainage practice, with the intention of bringing to life the things discussed.
