Reverse Zoom Fatigue With a Revitalizing Chair Yoga Practice

Video Duration:

It wasn’t that many months into the pandemic when “Zoom fatigue” became a mainstay in the 2020 lexicon. It turns out that conducting hours of meetings through video conferencing platforms is physically and energetically draining. And though you may be practicing ahimsa (non-harm) and turning webcam conversations into emails, on some days you may need a little support.

This potent practice includes gentle movements and self-massage that will rest your eyes, relieve tension your face, jaw, and neck, and restore your sense of embodiment and presence. Plus, it only takes 10 minutes, so it fits into even the most hectically scheduled calendars.
