QIGONG COULD HELP WITH COVID-19
Qigong as a mind-body and breath regulation healing modality has been demonstrated through various clinical studies to be beneficial for different conditions, particularly for respiratory health, for women and potentially beneficial as well for COVID.

You might be wondering, if I am a man, or if am supporting men with lung health problems like COVID, is this course suitable for me?
Though this course has been designed specifically for Women, men can also benefit:
Chinese Medicine (which Qigong is rooted in) especially values nourishing Yin (Blood) for women, as opposed to Yang (Qi) for men, owing to hormonal differences between the two genders, though both Yin and Yang are important for both genders.
Just like within Yoga there is Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa flow, Yin, Qigong has many styles and lineages, ranging from more active / up-regulating (sweat-inducing) to gentle / down-regulating.
This course is rooted in gentle, flowing Qigong forms rather than strong, martial Qigong forms to support the practitioner to nourish Yin, with the added focus on the Lung meridians, since this is for Lung health and to support COVID prevention and recovery.
Who this course is for:
- Yoga teachers and practitioners who want to boost lung health and support COVID recovery
- Anyone looking to boost lung / respiratory health
- Anyone who wants to recover from COVID
