Another week goes by, Mind-Body students! We are almost done with our introduction to my Udemy tai chi courses.
This week, we have one of my most interesting courses to introduce: Strengthen Your Immune System with Tai Chi and Qi Gong. The immune system is a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to defend the body against foreign invaders that can cause infection (from The National Institute of Health website). A compromised immune system can lead to the common cold, the flu, or other chronic health conditions and autoimmune diseases.
Some of the most promising studies of mindfulness and meditation from the past several years have suggested that a regular meditation practice can reduce immune-inhibiting inflammation, strengthen immune system cell defenses, and even slow the process of cell aging.
In this short course, composed of 19 lectures that span an hour of video time, we have packed as many immune-system boosting techniques as we could, while also keeping the length of the course something that you can review in a one hour session each day.
