We've spent some time researching the impact of yoga on the immune system (very good by the way), and one key point is that there are several research papers that show that the use of nasal irrigation (through a special plastic pot from the pharmacy, or a neti pot, and a saline solution) can make a big difference to how many symptoms people get, and how long those symptoms stay. Some of the research involved Corona viruses (not Covid-19 as it is too new) and the results were promising.
For example, this very recent research from Edinburgh academics shows that nasal irrigation and gargling produced less severe Corona virus symptoms and shorter symptom times. For now New Zealand is in the clear with Covid-19, but this research may also be useful for dealing with colds and flu:
We're taking bookings for in person yoga and hypnotherapy from mid July onwards.
Some of our events are listed here, but please get in touch to discuss your needs. We offer yoga on a 1-to-1 basis or in a small group. We specialise in working with people who have other health needs (for example: breathing issues, cardiac rehabilitation, cancer, depression, substance recovery, trauma, significant weight issues, older adults and people who are unfit and unused to yoga). We are happy to work with your doctor or therapist so that you get the help you need. We use a trauma sensitive approach and we adapt our work to your needs, rather than the other way around. Of course, if you're looking for a high energy approach, we'll happily accompany you to 108 rounds of Salute to the Sun.
We also offer relaxation and regression hypnotherapy for a wide range of needs including anxiety, stopping smoking, reducing drinking, weight management, and stress.
