Event Details

The day will offer an informed understanding of long-term COVID, including the medical definition and symptoms. You will be guided through asana, pranayama and relaxation to support the variety of symptoms, emphasising the importance of deep rest to aid the parasympathetic nervous system.

Throughout the day, we will cover the different elements of long-term COVID, how many of the symptoms are similar to dysfunctional breathing and menopause symptoms and how a holistic approach can lead to recovery.

Aim: To have an understanding of the different symptoms of long COVID and how yoga (asana, pranayama, relaxation and philosophy) can support these as well as contraindications (i.e. Postural tachycardia syndrome) that need to be considered

Objectives:

  • To name the most common symptoms
  • Have an understanding of how long COVID affects the autonomic nervous system
  • Identify yoga elements to support specific symptoms

Tutor Bio - Caroline Phillips

Caroline has been supporting groups with long-term COVID since 2020. She initially found yoga practices to support her own symptoms and was soon asked by a client for 1-2-1 sessions to help her return to full health. She joined the 360 Mind Body Soul Rest Repair Recover team in October 2020, which was specifically set up to support those with long COVID. It is now recommended by the NHS as well as Long COVID Clinics, including Cardiologist Dr Boon Lim, Dr Paul Gynne, Geriatrician Dr Melanie Danni and Long COVID Clinic Head and Consultant in Pain Management Dr Deepak Ravindran. Caroline also designed and developed the six-week yoga element of the Fern Programme. 

 She incorporates Hatha, Iyengar, Yin and restorative yoga alongside functional breathing and somatics in a trauma-informed approach to ensure inclusive, accessible, supportive guidance for all.
