This session will start with a brief chair yoga session, then follow with a very brief history of yoga and yoga programs at libraries and how it is currently being researched as an intervention in the biomedical and psychological fields. We will discuss how yoga is being practiced and made more accessible during the COVID-19 pandemic. The discussion will include the origins of the term “self-care” and its radical feminist context. We will center the discussion around self-care for librarians based on findings from a survey conducted in fall 2020.
