The polarity for women is reversed from a man's. When the guys needed to partner up with me and they wanted to try a very polarity specific exercise, if he was a beginner, I'd go to a cat stance for him so that his exercise would work for him as if I were a man standing with both feet flat on the floor. Is that what you were asking Gavin? I wouldn't think so because you know all that. Was it just a rhetorical question to keep the thread on track or am I missing something completely?

No it was a total legitimate inquiry. In my shiatsu studies we never discussed or used polarities in a clinical sense so I am genuinely interested in any theories as to how and why this makes a difference between genders. It's something that I've never encountered. In tai chi the yin and yang in stances is of the utmost importance but this isn't really anything energetic related it is just referring to the weighted and unweighted legs... well at least in the very beginning when teaching a student about being double weighted.

Hi,

In the practice of Pranayama in Yoga (this leads to Qi Gong soon) the typical person has a whole body "polarity" of yin or yang and can easily be identified by the dominant (read unstuffed) nostril

this is related to the flow of energy oft referred to the microcosmic orbit where Ida and Pingale energy channels are typically related to the common cyclical nature of the bodies energy flow as passive or active.

Pranayama AND Qi Gong both bring the energy centers into balance, the ideal state where "polarity" is balanced.

havent heard of Lt vs. Rt. hand "polarity"
Have heard of male vs. female polarity in the "Left hand path" of internal energy (Tantric sex).

I believe if the practice of Qi Gong or Pranayama is used to balance the energy channels Lt vs. Rt., male Vs. female matters not.

Point to strike and time of day where the point is at its nadir as well as balanced Qi projection will always make a difference in the more subtle points struck or, conversely a blatant point grazed lightly...do I dare say Dim Mak???

Karl. Peace.
