This recordings in this Short Course for practice during Covid Recovery are not suitable for absolute beginners. Even though explanations and demonstrations are clearly given, basic knowledge of asana positions, use of props, and ability to hold positions for extended periods of time is required. Nor are we recommending this at the acute phase of the disease. Unless working under the supervision of a trained instructor, this practice should be started slowly in the recovery stage, and slowly built up. Especially the ‘inverted/ upside down’ positions should not be practice when one is weak, or has never practiced inversions before.
For those who are in good health, these sessions give an excellent understanding of quiet practice to improve respiratory health
