Yoga for Long Covid
Welcome to the first online Yoga course dedicated to the recovery from Long Covid. Created by wellness and medical professionals, Yoga for Long Covid is an accessible six week programme designed to steadily improve ease and energy in your body-mind.
The Six Week Course
Experience a Yoga and Breathwork programme created with the sole aim of helping* Long Covid sufferers improve their movement and breathing capabilities for more strength, ease, and confidence.
Wellness & Medical Professionals
Created by Charlene McAuley, a Yoga-Rehab teacher working in the Premier League for over 7 years, and Dr.med. Christoph Seiland, a medical doctor, Yoga for Long Covid combines their vast knowledge in holistic rehabilitation and illness treatment to create a first-of-its-kind programme for Long Covid.
Accessible Classes to Improve Moving & Breathing
With many of the classes chair-based and easy-to-follow breathing exercises, you are always encouraged to meet yourself where you are. At the same time, you have access to new movement and breathwork exercises to release any stuckness and improve vitality.
Anytime & Anywhere At Your Own Pace

Easing into Breath and Movement
In this first Yoga for Long Covid class, Charlene McAuley guides you through a series of gently releasing chair-based movements. Establishing Breath & Movement slowly brings you into a place of more ease, strength, and vitality.
Like every class in the series, we begin and end with focussed breathing.
I truly believe in this programme and feel that it will help many people suffering from the ongoing effects that COVID has had on their lives, physically and emotionally.
This programme is suitable for everyone who is struggling with symptoms attributable to Long Covid (other causes for symptoms have been excluded) and want to feel better, make progress in their rehabilitation and enjoy life more fully.

Yoga for Long Covid
Discover the tools for improving your respiratory capabilities, muscle strength and mobility, and body-mind ease.
Here's a brief snapshot of what to expect from Yoga for Long Covid. With each Yoga video an accessible 20 minutes, and respiratory exercises around 10 minutes, we've created a programme that can be easily integrated into your wellbeing journey.
Easing into Breath and Movement
The first week begins with a chair-based 20 minute class designed by Charlene McAuley to gently release stiff joints, ease back tension, and focus on bringing together your breath and movement to improve focus on the here and now.
In a separate video, Dr.med. Christoph Seiland takes you through two breathing exercises highlighting natural breathing vs wrong breathing. The video features soothing visuals to soothe your nervous system whilst guiding you towards a longer, fuller breath.
Establishing Strength and Release
This week we are experiencing how to encourage both strength and release in the mind-body. In long haul Covid, learning to pace is vital to prevent over-exertion, which is why Week 3 is dedicated to playing with strength and allowing for full release.
In the 20 minute Yoga class, Charlene guides you through movements both on and off the chair to strengthen the legs, release the hips and create a supple spine. We are steadily increasing the flow of the class, yet options to take it more slowly are always available.
Experience bone-deep relaxation in the Deep Release video. With verbal invitations, soothing music, and calming visuals, Christoph guides you to a place of stillness and rest.
Exploring Fluid Strength & Release
We've reached the final week - maybe it's taken you 6 weeks or 6 months, this is a huge accomplishment.
In the final 20 minute Yoga class, we piece together the previous sessions to create a fluid class highlighting the strength, flexibility, and confidence you've cultivated during the Yoga for Long Covid programme.
In the last breathwork session, you are taught how to breath like a wave to experience the power of your respiratory system, the interplay between your diaphragm and lungs, as well as its deeply rejuvenating and calming effects.
