As a Covid Re-coverer myself, and helping my elderly parents successfully through it, as well as collaborating with other Yoga professionals who have had it – here is what we learned is key to help in the Covid fight:
3 Important Components of our Physical Health for dealing with Covid:
1. Good Respiratory Function – Deep breathing strengthens your Lungs
2. Good Cardio-Vascular Function – Improves blood flow needed for internal functions
3. Movement – Energizes your body and combats Covid fatigue and muscle aches
Yoga Pose for Covid – “Life Force Reach”
Stand tall and erect with your arms open as wide as comfortable. Lift your chin slightly and take 5-8 deep breaths. As you inhale welcome in healing life force energy (prana) into your being. As you exhale, allow your body to soften and release any tension, fret or worry.
If possible, do this facing the sun for more positive energy, or even in front of a bright window.
Key Benefits: Lifts your Spirits, Expands your Lungs and Gives you more Energy!
