Synopsis

Long Covid symptoms can often leave people feeling incredibly fatigued and stressed, and conventional yoga practice may not be suitable for their needs or ability. This practice-based guide addresses the symptoms of Long Covid and fatigue directly and offers adapted techniques to help yoga therapists and health professionals work with clients struggling with their symptoms.
Beginning with an initial theoretical explanation of the science behind Long Covid, each subsequent chapter focusses on different elements of this condition and offers scripted practices that professionals may read aloud or adapt as needed. Themes include a trauma-informed approach to stress, breathing techniques, how to rest, making a kind connection to the body, pacing vs moving, the five pranas, and working with the chakras to increase energy. Each section maintains a focus on helping clients reduce and better manage their symptoms in order to heal, with one chapter dedicated entirely to supporting children with Long Covid.
This guide is an imperative resource for health professionals and yoga therapists on how to guide students struggling with Long Covid and fatigue symptoms in a way that won't exacerbate their conditions.
