The First Dedicated
Yoga for Long Covid Programme
Using the simple yet effective ancient practice of Yoga to create a truly holistic course as part of your recovery from Long Covid. Featuring specifically designed Yoga practices and breathwork from Wellness and Medical professionals, the first of its kind Yoga for Long Covid Programme is here to help* you in your return to health.
Finding the right Yoga class when recovering from the unpredictable Long Covid can be very difficult given the myriad of styles available. This is why we have created this course: to give you the peace of mind that you're practising something that has been specifically designed by experienced professionals for the recovery from Long Covid.
We're learning that suffering from Long Haul Covid can take on many different forms. Brain fog, fatigue, breathing difficulties, are just some of the symptoms associated sufferers report. Yet almost all relay the unpredictability of the post-viral disease - one day feeling relatively normal, and the next day utterly exhausted.
We also know the recovery from Long Covid not only effects sufferers physically and mentally, but also financially with many unable to attend work, and some no longer in work.
Yoga for Long Covid by this yoga wants to play its part in helping the millions of people struggling to get better.

Easing into Breath and Movement

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 effects.

For the first time ever, my physical and mental symptoms have reduced in tandem, and whilst I've some way to go, I feel so much better than I have for so long. Holistic is a word that is thrown around a lot and has in many ways lost its meaning.
This truly characterises Charlene's approach and for me has been the only real solution. I would recommend Charlene to anybody without hesitation.
