Exceptionally useful workshop! The information presented was clear and concise. The movement and breath protocols offered are easy to implement and I believe have application beyond just dealing with COVID, because inflammation is a prevalent problem in today’s lifestyles. I was able to incorporate knowledge gained into my teaching the very next day."

The workshop truly was great in all ways - Dr. Yang explains everything so lucidly and skillfully. She condenses her medical expertise in a way that is easy to understand. She also left us with practical tips, as well as the science behind which yoga postures and breathing exercises are beneficial, when recovering from a COVID infection. Thanks for making science so enjoyable, warm and compassionate!"
