Yoga May Play Significant Role In The Psycho-Social Care And Rehabilitation Of Covid-19 Patients

Yoga is a discipline based on an extremely subtle science, which focuses on bringing harmony between mind and body. It is an art and science of healthy living. Yoga leads to a perfect harmony between mind and body, man and nature, individual consciousness and universal consciousness. Yoga helps to build up psycho-physiological health, emotional harmony; and manage daily stress and its consequences. Yoga is also useful in conditions where stress is believed to play a role(1).Various yogic practices such as Yogasanas, Pranayama, Dhyana (meditation),cleansing and relaxation practices etc. are known help modulate the physiological response to stressors. Several randomized controlled studies have shown the efficacy of Yogic practices in management of non-communicable diseases like hypertension(2) , Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease (COPD)(3) , bronchial asthma(4) , diabetes(5) , sleep disorders(6),depression(7) , obesity(8), etc. that can be comorbid conditions in patients with COVID 19. Yoga has also been shown to be useful in vulnerable population such as elderly, children. The function of the immune system is critical in the human response to infectious disease.A growing body of evidence identifies stress as a cofactor in infectious disease susceptibility and outcomes(9).

This document provides guidelines for yoga professionals (Certified Yoga teachers/ instructors and therapists etc. ) to teach a safe set of Yoga practices based on available scientific evidences, to novices in all walks of society as a service to humanity during this pandemic of COVID -19. This is complimentary to all measures that have been adopted.
