Seated Back Stretch
This back stretch helps mobilize along the whole length of the spine. It is a seated version of the 'cat/cow' yoga pose.
To mobilize along the whole length of the spine, start by putting your hands on your knees and sitting up tall. Then round the back, curling up tucking your chin down and your tailbone underneath you. Now go the other way, looking up and arching the back at the same time. Try to arch the back on an inhale, and round the back on an exhale. Do this exercise within whatever is a comfortable range of motion for you.
Exercise is an important part of COVID-19 recovery in order to regain your strength, endurance, flexibility, and ability to fully take part in all aspects of your daily life. Even if you cannot yet tolerate exercise standing up or moving more vigorously, it is still very important to keep yourself as active as possible.
Stacked breathing is a technique to increase the size of the breath you are able take in. It can also improve the strength of your voice and your cough, so you can better clear out the lungs, as well as your lung flexibility.
