Reviews

'Fiona writes with humility, wisdom, and much common sense about how yoga can help these conditions, which are so prevalent. A carefully laid out and thorough guide, covering theory and a broad range of practices, this should be an essential component of any yoga teacher's toolkit - but is also totally accessible to non-teachers.'
- Elizabeth Stanley, Director, Yogacampus

'This exceptionally well-presented work of heart is a companion that tackles the debilitating challenges of so many human beings' daily lives. Fiona's experience and research are woven within her heartfelt support and practical guidance. This important new work intelligently reveals yoga's therapeutic wisdom with great clarity, talking to you as you are. A book for right now.'
- Simon Low, The Yoga Academy

'This book is filled with not only Fiona's phenomenal depth of knowledge but also her wisdom. Both her experience with CF and her understanding of yoga as a therapeutic practise offer great information and potential for healing for those working with people with ME/CFS and also for those who are suffering with it.'
- Jyoti Jo Manuel - Founder Special Yoga

'I suffered from complete burnout a few years ago, and spent a few months in bed unable to do anything much. I wish I'd had Fiona's book back then. I'm fully on board with her recommendations for mindful gentle healing, and I hope this book helps you to re-energise and recover.'
- Tony Wrighton, Sky Sports presenter, author and host of Zestology podcast

'I loved this book. I work as a yoga therapist with lots of different groups of people with differing chronic diseases, including CFS, MS and Parkinson's. Fiona has explained clearly the impact of stress on the body, both physically and mentally. We all live in a stressful world and the impact is felt by all. This book would be useful for all yoga teachers and for those who have an interest in how to help the effects of stress and resulting fatigue using yoga, not just those working with students with CFS.'
- Dr Tamsin Betts, yoga therapist and former GP

'This is a highly engaging and vital text for yoga therapists, health professionals working with ME/CFS, and those seeking their own healing strategies for stress, burnout and ME/CFS. Agombar deftly weaves together the most current scientific theories and understanding of ME/CFS with yogic philosophical perceptions; brilliantly elucidating how yoga therapy's multi-dimensional nature meets offers so much to those with ME/CFS. This approach could be easily applied by yoga therapists to any health condition. Her reflections on ill health and healing should inspire all of us to consider how we live in the modern world, what health actually means, and how to gently find our way back to greater wellness in a mode that is personally meaningful. It is going to be required reading at the Minded Institute.'
- Heather Mason
