In this talk I share some of the tools I use with my clients who have ME/CFS and will explain common causes of chronic fatigue, exhaustion and burnout. I will briefly discuss polyvagal theory and overwhelm - and the role yoga can play in mitochondrial regenesis. We will look at cultural expectations around energy and 'achieving' and how people with fatigue and burnout states may be marginalised. This, can lead to destructive patterns (samskāras) which may then trigger the common 'push, crash' scenario we see in chronic fatigue states. Self compassion and boundaries form a really important part of the presentation. Finally we look at the yoga model of energy to see how we can maximise prāna in the system. Specific prānayāma and mantra techniques that help to release granthis (restrictions in the pancamaya kosha) will be shared. If you are interested in yoga, fatigue and how we can encourage the free-flow of prāna - then I look forward to seeing you!
