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!"

Clear, concise and exceptionally useful

Exceptionally useful workshop! The information presented was clear and concise dealing with COVID-19 as an inflammatory disease and its effects on the body. 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 and I am inspired to include a meditation component regularly due to the evidence presented that meditation further enhances the positive effects of a yoga practice.

Deep, thorough, and research-based.

I appreciated this course so much because Ingrid goes through the material quickly, clearly, and concisely. She did a good job of pausing with the most important bullet points, too, which I noticed and appreciated. Finally, most importantly, I learned techniques that I started bringing into my classes and work with patients the very next day.
