  • Yoga after Covid: Just take a deep breath again

Every covid infection is different. However, many sufferers consistently report that they suffer from shortness of breath and fatigue even weeks after recovery. No energy, poor concentration and memory difficulties are further consequences of the infection. For most, even weeks after recovery, sports are still out of the question. Exercise has a positive effect on the entire body – and on the psyche. A form of movement that is predestined is yoga. Why is Yoga a good idea after Covid:

Gentle training

It is important that you do not immediately return to your old training regium or plan. The infection weakens the body and those who lie flat on their back for weeks are simply not as resilient as before the disease. Professionals from the sports and medical sector therefore recommend taking a getting the ok from your doctor before resuming training. And of course, you should also listen to your body. Don’t put yourself under pressure. If you feel well and the doctor has given the Ok, then you can slowly get back into your fitness regium. Gentle forms of exercise such as swimming, walking and yoga are ideal for this. In any case, make sure that your pulse reaches a maximum of 70 percent of the maximum heart rate.

The best tips for yoga after Covid

The positive effects of yoga have long been well documented. Both for the body and for the psyche. Because even with anxiety and stress, yoga can help. “In order to actually benefit from the many positive effects on the body, it is important to perform the exercises correctly,” says yoga trainer Sandra König. This can be done, for example, in the context of a supervised yoga retreat.

“Especially after a covid, it is important on the one hand to break out of the fatigue spiral. On the other hand, targeted breathing exercises and yoga positions such as ‘heart openers’ help to increase the breathing volume again. So you have the feeling that you can finally breathe deeply again,” explains the bestselling author, well-known yoga trainer and popular radio presenter König.
