for these miracles, a real physical and psychological battle begins after the illness …

“For Covid patients, the resuscitation stay is long,” explains a resuscitation doctor. “It often lasts more than two weeks. During this period, the body is immobilized and all the muscles gradually lose their strength. It loses its muscle mass and its physiological reserves. Once saved and released, the patient can no longer perform all the innate acts and all the tasks he used to do such as breathing, urinating, washing, using a glass of water, swallowing food , stand up, grab an object on a table, change the chain with a remote control… Rehabilitation is therefore always necessary and, if this work is not carried out, the patient could suffer from lifelong sequelae Continues the doctor.

Containment: but what yoga do you practice?

Seghir Lazri works on the theme of social vulnerability of athletes. In this column, he takes a few pictures of sport through the social sciences. How the social explains sport, and vice versa.

Confinement requires, physical exercises at home have become the only solutions to keep in shape. Among these practices, yoga, given the limited resources it requires and its significant presence on broadcasting networks, has been extremely successful. Combined with the image of healthy and fulfilling exercise, this millennial activity of Indian origin has constantly evolved and changed over time and in societies. Which leads us to question: in this age of ultra performance and social networks, what type of yoga do we practice?

Goodbye the body

To reduce yoga to just physical activity would not be very fair. Behind this term, first, there is a spiritual discipline specific to Hindu philosophy. Although difficult to date, the most primitive forms of yoga would have appeared between the IIIe and the Ier millennium BC. But it was at the end of this period, under the rise of Brahmanism, that this philosophy developed by adopting a discourse. Indeed, yoga was first of all a form of renunciation of the world, “A voice of inner silence”, according to the work of the Indianist Michel Angot. The Brahmanization of yoga, in other words the association of speech with this initially silent experience, will give rise to a collection which is called Yoga-sutra. For Michel Angot, the main object of Hindu philosophy, especially through yoga, is the deliverance of the soul through the absence of suffering. It’s actually a “Suicide of the body”, in the sense that it is a question of putting bodily sensations at a distance, or even of extinguishing them in order to eliminate suffering and pain, and to “Put the mind to rest”.

The real upheaval takes place only around the XIe century, with the appearance of a new form of yoga, called tantric, which proposes to unite with the divine. This results in the search for perfection by the full exploitation of human capacities, both physical and mental. From then on, the yoguist becomes quite something other than this ascetic figure, he is a performing body and resistant to pain. So in the XVIIIe century, yogists were even employed as soldiers against the British army, and sometimes recruited by the latter. They passed “Men of peace to men of war”, according to Michel Angot. Far from the more original Yoga Sutra exercises, which put forward the work of sound and speech much more than that of the body. In other words, the achievement of asanas, body postures, was only secondary.

Modern yoga

Breaking with the yoga of the origins, that spread all over the world and more particularly in Western societies rests on other cultural and social heritages than those of South Asia. French journalist Marie Kock, author of the book Yoga, a world story, returns at length to this diffusion through Western societies, which really began from the end of the XIXe at the instigation of master Swami Vivekananda. This last “First major exporter of Indian spirituality”, according to Michel Angot, participates amply in making yoga a tool of soft power for an Indian nation still under British supervision, but whose independence movement continues to grow. Regarding the practice itself, this yoga had to renounce part of its heritage to integrate other practices, such as different forms of gymnastics (Swedish in particular), and thus better correspond to the Western public.

Read alsoPhysical activity: upper body

This is why yoga, by adapting and responding to the normative injunctions of its time, sees its practice mainly concentrated around bodily exercises, where the idea of ​​body conservation and the quest for eternal youth have definitively replaced this original posture of renouncing the world. The imperative of health and long life which undoubtedly places “The body at the center of interests” according to the philosopher Isabelle Queval, is fully found in the new forms of yoga, which social networks promote. This is how the increasingly large dissemination of spectacular physical prowess (especially on Instagram) tends on the one hand to reduce yoga to a performative approach (to surpass oneself all the time), but also to propagate a discriminating normativity ( neither too thin nor too big). In addition, as Marie Kock points out, this predominance of a juvenile vision of the body generates new forms of precariousness in the world of yoga teaching, with many practitioners constantly seeking an ever younger and influential teacher.

In these times of confinement, the promotion of yoga exercises is in full swing. It seems important to understand that current practices are far removed from yoga of the origins and that they respond to contemporary structural and ideological determinisms. To understand this is not to denigrate the yogas of today, but above all to get rid of this exotic representation (often used for promotion) and understand that this practice, as it is inscribed in our social universe, can be a means of understanding.

COLEF Asturias celebrates with you the World Day of Physical Activity

Today, April 6, the World Day of Physical Activity is celebrated all over the planet, from home. From the Official College of Graduates in Physical Education and Physical Activity and Sports Sciences of Asturias (COLEF Asturias) remember that it is very important that these days of confinement avoid sedentariness, in addition to avoiding spending more than an hour sitting, reducing the time in front of the screens – television, computer, etc. – and, in addition, increasing daily physical activity. For this reason, they encourage all Asturians to find a space in their homes where they can improvise a gym, choose a moment a day and, alone or with their family, carry out physical activities appropriate to the physical condition and state of health of each one. Getting started is essential.

Teleworking and the fact of not being able to attend educational and sports centers can increase downtime, therefore it is necessary to include conscious actions in the day to day to avoid it. For example, from COLEF Asturias they recommend setting an alarm and from time to time moving around the home; Perform regular routines to break a sedentary lifestyle or try to include times when you work standing and not sitting.

These days of confinement are a good time to perform muscular strength exercise, since physical inactivity causes muscle mass to be lost – sarcopenia. This training can include a wide variety of exercises with your own body weight, using objects such as cushions and bottles of water and without having to leave the house (squats, push-ups on the wall, irons …). As they point out, for older people, strength exercise is even more important, as this prevents frailty and prevents falls.

If anyone has any questions about training at home, they can contact a collegiate sports physical educator. You should look for them on the website, where you can also see the videos that COLEF Asturias have designed especially for each person. Likewise, it is important to remember that, under normal conditions, physical exercise must be directly directed and supervised by a professional so that it is carried out safely and healthily.

Varied routines

Another tip that professionals in Physical Education offer is to give variety to sports routines. Performing physical exercise as a family through motor games will cover fundamental needs in children and adults, such as the need for movement, accompaniment and emotional well-being, which are currently essential for a good coexistence as well. It should not be forgotten that Physical Education is very important at all stages of life.

Physical exercise helps improve the immune system, but it is important to know that it is contraindicated if you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath. In addition, intense or vigorous physical exercise is not recommended, especially if you are not used to it. Aerobic activities such as walking fast, dancing to our favorite music or following the COLEF Asturias videos should be included in each training. Joint mobility and flexibility must also be worked on, as well as maintaining good hydration.

COLEF Asturias and the General Directorate of Sports have launched a campaign to promote this sport at home. They are # MuéveteEnCasa and #ActivaAsturias, and can be followed at and Right now, getting around is a first-rate need, and health will thank you. And, above all, professionals in Physical and Sports Education must be trusted.


Tanya Tagaq, under the Inuit midnight sun

It’s a form of alien deliverance in our latitudes: the frenzied intoxication of winter arctic confined people when spring comes. “The smells released by the spring thaw raise in us a furious need for movement. The air is so clean that you can smell the difference between smooth and jagged stone. Smell the water flowing over the clay. ” The author, like her narrator, is Inuit, originally from Ikaluktutiak, Nunavut. The first two chapters show two highlights of life in this High Arctic region of the late 1970s. In the first, toddlers hide in a closet, terrified by the cries, blows and laughter of severely alcoholic adults. Second delirium which they sometimes fail to escape. In the second, a swarm of children are rushing outside, on the thawed ponds, under the sun which is no longer setting, and far from their parents. “Who endure the frenzy of our constant agitation”. Especially when winter has come “Long, oppressive”. Violence and fear, energy and sensuality.

Neon outfits

A narrator recounts her youth in part that of the author. But there is nothing linear about this learning story. It is made up of fragments: memories, dreams, lyric poems, visions. The little girl has a tomboy temper. She ventures into tundra walks that can last for hours. She collects lemmings, feeds them carrots on her terrace, and then lets them bury themselves in her long hair spread over the ground. She takes a newt by the tail in the aquarium, she lets it doze on her tongue, mouth open, before putting it back in the water. She trains her group of girlfriends to punish a little too arrogant boy by mowing his clothes. Later, she wears close-fitting, very fluorescent outfits, her hair pulled up in sauerkraut quickly demolished by the wind, the frosted pink gloss; the school closes only from -50. She sniffs butane in disused buildings tasting its psychedelic effects: “Everything is pixelated, muddled and lit up at the same time. The echo becomes my universe and the torpor changes into lightning flashes while the ground undulates in rolling waves. “ We follow the almost natural daily life of an imaginative teenage girl, a bit whimsical. But these adventures alternate with texts in verse, punch, which say the abuse of power by men and rape. “The sternum is the shield / Even hindered / Even when it stifles the face of a little girl / And the springs of the bed creak”. There are many Inuit feminicides. The book is also dedicated “To missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls, and to residential school survivors.”

We can see this novel as a testimony from the inside and a militant act. Tanya Tagaq, famous throat singer who worked with Björk, denounces in this fiction the way the Inuit were forced to lose their way of life, their ancestral knowledge and their language. The Canadian government has sent aboriginal youth to residential schools to assimilate into western culture. “The residential schools kicked Inuktitut out of this city in the name of progress, in the name of decency. […] It hurt me to see Inuktitut slip away. He lives just below my subconscious, like the secrets of the teacher. ” As a teenager, she herself was sent to such an establishment nearly a thousand kilometers from her home. But the tone is absolutely not accusatory. It shows more of the cultural shock through the eyes of a little girl, who mixes both the experience of violence in her community confronted with the loss of culture and meaning, the turmoil of puberty and the search for a spiritual fullness.

Rock water

The first time, she is 11 years old and has fun with six or seven kids in an abandoned house. Suddenly she has the vision of the presence of a creature, which the others do not perceive: “I feel something entering the room from above, in the right corner. I don’t see it but I know it’s there, crystal clear. My real being recognizes this feeling, remembers where it comes from, where it lives. ” It’s only a beginning. The extreme energy of this very punk heroine seems to meet the forgotten life force of a whole world of totem animals and haggard ancestors. It is a deeply intimate and physical contact, under the miraculous light of the northern lights.
