Queen Elizabeth Hospital, QE or QEH in short, is the largest acute district general hospital at King's Park in Kowloon, Hong Kong. It was named after Queen Elizabeth II. The hospital is a major hospital in southern Kowloon.

Andiappan Yoga Community is pleased to partner with Queen Elizabeth Hospital Patient Resource Centre in providing free yoga therapy classes to the patients. With the increasing awareness of yoga and its therapeutic benefits, various yoga practice has now been applied in the rehabilitation and prevention process. AYC's Founder and Director Dr. Yogananth Andiappan along with AYC Volunteers M/s Cheryl, M/s Louise, M/s Rita, M/s Shirley and Master Mahesh conducted a lecture demonstration about the benefits of yoga for back conditions and yoga poses that can be practiced while sitting on the chair. All the participants really enjoyed the class.
AYC很高興能與伊院的病人資源中心合作,為痛症患者提供免費瑜伽治療課程。隨著瑜伽的普及化其治療功效漸漸備受關注,並慢慢被應用於復康及預防疾病的範疇。AYC的創始人暨總監 Yogananth Andiappan博士帶領義工導師 Cheryl、Louise、Rita、Shirley和 Mahesh老師於2018年3月17日進行了一瑜伽工作坊示範課,與病友們分享椅上瑜伽對長期痛症及改善姿勢的益處。每期十節的課程亦於2018年十月開始舉行。

A therapeutic sequence of gentle yoga poses combined with breathing techniques will be taught in the class.
