What is Thyroid Yoga®? 

Thyroid Yoga® created by Fern Olivia is a hatha-based movement and meditation practice inspired by her own journey with Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism, education in biomedical engineering, and studies in Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and Integrative Nutrition. The aim of each sequence is to balance the glandular system and tonify the adrenals while supporting the thyroid, also named the “Beauty Gland” as Fern Olivia explains: “because it is a major player when it comes to your skin, your hair, your weight, and how you feel every day.”
