In The News…

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Do you have a client who seems abnormally fatigued all the time?  Has the condition persisted for quite a while all during the time you have had them as clients?  CFS may be the culprit if clients show up with overwhelming fatigue, seemingly not relieved by rest, to the extent that their activity levels are decreased at least 50%. How CFS is caused is not currently known.

The fatigue of CFS is accompanied by characteristic symptoms lasting at least 6 months. These symptoms include:

– problems with short-term memory or concentration severe enough to affect job, social, or personal activities
– a frequent or recurring sore throat
– tender lymph nodes in neck or armpit
– muscle pain
– multi-joint pain without swelling or redness
– headaches of a new type, pattern, or severity
– unrefreshing sleep and
– extreme, prolonged exhaustion and an overall feeling of sickness lasting more than 24 hours following physical or mental activity.

The symptoms listed above are used to diagnose this illness. However, many CFS patients may experience other symptoms, including irritable bowel, depression or psychological problems, chills and night sweats, visual problems, allergies, ‚Äúbrain fog,‚ÄĚ difficulty maintaining upright position, dizziness, balance problems or fainting.
Based on an American study of more than 28,000 adults, 422 per 100,000 had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). This suggests that 125,000-150,000 Canadian adults may have CFS.1 It also affects children1;2 and occurs more often in females than in males, at a rate of almost 2:1. It is mainly a disorder that strikes young to middle-aged adults.1 
Currently there is no ‚Äúmagic bullet‚ÄĚ to treat CFS. The focus of management includes coping strategies, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), a graded exercise program and symptom management.¬† Treatment to assist in management to help decrease fatigue, pain and sleep problems is often included.

QiYoga By Bart Wagar

Qi is an active principle forming part of any living thing. Qi is frequently translated as “energy flow”, and Yoga is loosely translated into “yoke”, or “the act of yoking or harnessing”. It is our goal to combine these two amazing principles. You will build energy and harness its power guiding you to an increased sense of well-being.¬† Our program combines Yoga, Tai Chi, and Qigong, into a simple flow of movement that when connected to breath is an energy building experience guaranteed to get you off the couch. Anyone at any age can move forward on a path to greater mobility. You can use this program as a stepping stone to a more dynamic practice, or simply ease into its meditative flow achieving a greater sense of self.

All you will need is loose fitting clothing some water and the willingness to take the first step

Performance Breathing By Bart Wagar

Breath is the essence of life!

Everyone enters the world on an inhalation and leaves the world on an exhalation, how we breathe in between is what sets us apart. Breath supports the concept of give and take; with each breath we exchange ten billion trillion atoms. The air we breathe connects us with every living thing that has ever taken a breath, so we should be aware of this gift.

The purpose of this program is to bring awareness to breath, from our life force and vitality, our daily yoga practice, and our athletic performance. We will practice pranayama breathing exercises from Bhastrika (bellows breath), through Ujjayi, (success breath). We will apply breath work in action as it applies to the bandhas, and embrace vital energy. We will follow this up with 11 modern training and performance breathing concepts that can be applied to any yoga practice or athletic endeavor. You don’t want to show up to the studio, golf course, field, rink, etc. without these tools in your toolbox.

You take approximately seventeen thousand breaths each day which over a lifetime totals about 500 million breaths. Your breathing supports every experience you have ever had from that first inhale to the last exhale. Breath is life! Make it count!
