About this talk
In this presentation, yoga therapist Fiona Agombar will share insights from her experience offering yoga to clients experiencing chronic fatigue and what their experience can teach us about effective yoga practices for those with Long Covid. While many modern yoga teachers encourage students to “push through” in order to grow in their yoga practice, this approach may be detrimental to students experiencing chronic fatigue and inflammation. Instead of the traditional asana-only approach, Fiona emphasizes the importance of pacing, mantra, mindfulness, acceptance, and self compassion. Learn what emerging research teaches us about the impact of inflammation on mitochondria and the critical need for balance between activity and rest for this population. Come away with practical ideas to integrate this information into your teaching and a diverse set of yogic practices to support students with Long Covid.
