Fibromyalgia and Yoga

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all. Does anyone find that yoga helps with their fibro or makes it worse or has no affect at all.

I know everyones fibro is different so one persons experience may not be the same for me, i just wanted others info.

​I can't do normal exercise as i pass out if i over do it so thought something gentle like yoga might do me some good.

Any advice would be great.

​Thanks​

    There is something called restoreative yoga which has gentle yoga exercises.  Or at least ones you can pick and choose from.  I find the breathing exercises are easy!!!  lol  I like yoga excercises I can do standing up, and I think they help a lot when they are gentle and stretch some of those muscles.  Just start with a couple of exercises you think you can handle and then work your way up.  Good luck

      Hi debbie, thanks for your reply, i googled yoga for beginners and as you may know there where hundreds..lol.. so i read a few of the reviews and came across one that roxy shahidi (layla from emmerdale) did called, AM/PM yoga for beginners, there was a review that said it was very basic, was a lot about breathing and low grade movement. the am portion was to awaken the body and the pm one was to relax you for sleep and it had 5 modules to pick and cjoose from.. i thought that sounded perfect for me to start with. nothing to strenuous.

      ​will just see what happens.. i guess..

      ​Thanks debbie.
