Gentle Yoga for Long Covid, Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia

This is a 5 week course led by Sally Roach of Yoga is for Life. Sally offers her considerable experience and study of therapeutic and trauma-informed yoga, as well as her personal experience of having and recovering from Chronic Fatigue. ‘Gentle Yoga’ is about creating the conditions for our body to gradually heal by soothing and balancing the nervous system through breathing, gentle movement and relaxation practices that can be done seated or lying down. There will be mini-rests between movements and there’s always the choice to drop into the compassionate act of resting. The theme for this course is ‘functional breathing’ to benefit these 3 conditions. We will release tight muscles that perpetuate a ‘stressed’ breathing pattern and move gently towards healthier patterns that can rebalance our Oxygen and CO2 levels, regulate our nervous system and help to increase the energy production in our cells. This course is paced for people with lower energy who want to explore their breathing patterns and improve their breathing function for greater well-being"
