Fasting: What We Should Know for Yoga Yoga Therapy

6 Hours | 3 Sessions

With Montserrat G. Mukherjee C-IAYT

Fasting and intermittent fasting has gained attention in scientific and medical communities in recent years for its potential health benefits, including weight management and improved metabolic health.

This training explores fasting in the context of Yoga Therapy, examining various considerations such as its historical significance, different methods, physiological and psychological effects, and integration into clients’ everyday lives. We will also discuss the potential benefits and risks associated with fasting, and how Yoga Therapy practices can be tailored to individuals that practise it.

Additionally, this training will review scientific research and the impact on health conditions like chronic inflammation, digestive disorders, and stress-related ailments. Understanding the scientific evidence will help us better comprehend the potential synergy with Yoga Therapy practices.

This training does not endorse or promote fasting, or any extreme or unsustainable practices. Instead, it seeks to provide a balanced and informed perspective in the realm of Yoga Therapy, emphasising individualised approaches and professional guidance.
