Fiona Agombar is a yoga therapist, author and Rest Activist. Her teacher is Dr Kausthub Desikachar. She specialises in teaching live online yoga for all fatigue conditions. This includes ME/CFS, exhaustion, burnout from stress and Long-Covid. Designed to soothe the nervous system, these one-hour classes promote peace and vitality and help to manage fatigue, breathing problems and anxiety. Running once weekly via Zoom (Mondays 11 am GMT or BST), Fiona shares healthy breathing to undo poor breathing patterns, deep relaxation, mantra, very gentle movement and meditation. The yoga is trauma informed, meaning everything is a choice and participants are always in charge of how they practice. Rest is encouraged! You are guided to make a healing connection with your body through grounding, somatic and restorative movement as all systems are safely held, restored and nurtured. A sense of wellbeing and safety arise through acceptance of the current experience as you journey towards cultivating self-compassion, awareness and kindness to self.
The classes are primarily designed for those who have profound exhaustion from ME/CFS, burnout, fibromyalgia, long-COVID and Lyme but anyone who is stressed, anxious, or who has a chronic health condition – or who would just like some deep relaxation will find the classes helpful.
Classes are payable by donation. Please use the contact form for further details

“With your gentle voice I drifted in and out of sleep during the class but by the end my body had reset and I was no longer in adrenaline mode and managed a good night’s sleep. I was in a far better place to be able to deal with the various situations the following day, so thank you.
Often if people are unable to physically do a class they do not attend. Zoom classes have now made it possible to ‘attend’ even if it is in PJ’s and bed and still get the benefit of a class without having to to anything other than be present. Many thanks Fiona.”
“I have really enjoyed your Monday yoga class. I’d forgotten how much I loved your classes. I felt really grounded after your class this week. Thought it may not be so effective doing it from home but it was great. Loved the chanting. I even got the hang of using Zoom. Thank you for your nurturing class.”
“Just a quick email to say thank you so much for all the yoga classes over the past few months. I had post viral fatigue since having covid in May and your classes really helped me to relax and rest properly and I’m sure they contributed to my recovery.”

What they are saying about Yoga Therapy for Stress, Burnout and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
‘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
‘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 of Yogacampus
