In this Yoga and Long Covid workshop with Liz Williams you will learn about Yoga interventions that can give Long Covid sufferers some tools to aid with their individual symptoms as well as aid the body and mind to heal from this acute inflammatory invasion.

Covid -19 virus: just the mention of these words has very different reactions amongst the population – fear, complacency or anger, to name just a few. Covid infection may have been severe or mild, but the inflammatory process in the body does cause damage to lung and cardio-vascular tissues.

In Australia, up to the beginning of September 2021, there have been 99,000 confirmed positive cases of Covid -19 with 2,000 of those people hospitalised. The severity of the infection, prior health conditions, and the treatment needed, will all impact recovery and any long-term symptoms.

Long Covid is now recognised as a possible outcome post-infection. In Australia, 3,000 cases were followed. It was found that while younger healthier people did recover quickly, many older people and those with chronic health conditions took a lot longer. However, even among the young and healthy cohort, there were some who still had symptoms for months after ‘recovery’.

Studies from overseas, have identified several common symptoms post infection. Shortness of breath on exertion, headaches &/or brain fog, fatigue, fever, anxiety, depression and many individual symptoms.

A very useful timely workshop given the current world situation. Well presented. Liz has an excellent theoretical as well as hands on knowledge of the subject, which she imparts with a passion. This is my second workshop with Liz.

Liz Williams is an excellent educator. She is well researched and has a deep understanding of the subjects she presents. Long Covid research and understanding is ongoing, however Liz is able to give a clear understanding of the effects of Long Covid as known at the time of presentation and how we as Yoga Teachers may assist a student.
