Chronic fatigue Tag

Yoga for Pain helps those with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and persistent pain develop a more positive relationship with their body and themselves, through gentle movement, techniques to calm the nervous system and guided reflection.

We are running a Yoga for Pain 1 introductory workshop in Melbourne on April 17.  It is for people experiencing any kind of persistent pain. Because this workshop coincides with Yoga for Pain Practitioner Training it is being offered at half the normal price. These sessions are a unique opportunity to practice yoga alongside the teachers and practitioners who would normally care for you and give them your feedback about your experience.

Yoga Fibromyalgia and Music - Jill's storyJill had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after a series of stressful events.  She saw an opportunity to make big changes in her life, to focus on her wellbeing and pursue a new career as a marriage celebrant. Inspired by a Finding Yoga video about yoga for Fibromyalgia, Jill wanted to add yoga to her multi-disciplinary approach to wellness to help her exercise without pain, get fit and support her journey into new territory.

How to travel with FibromyalgiaIt’s coming up to summer holidays, which for many people is a chance to get away, to camp, see friends or explore the world.  For people experiencing Fibromyalgia merely the thought of a long car ride or plane flight will trigger the worry alarm, but it is possible to learn to travel comfortably and visit far away places that enrich your life. Here are some suggestions for preparing your body and your mindset, whether it's a long weekend in wine country, a European sojourn or a long hike in China.

Yoga for Pain classes PerthGentle Yoga is designed especially for those suffering from Fibromyalgia and persistent pain.  Many pain sufferers come to Gentle Yoga because general classes in the community, even beginners classes, are just too intense.  Gentle Yoga allows them to practice at their own level, gradually building strength, flexibility and body awareness.   As they build a new relationship with the way they use their bodies, students find a new relationship with their pain.
"I am very glad to have been recommended to Finding Yoga by my physiotherapist.  Thank you for a terrific introduction to yoga. I have enjoyed the Tuesday class and look forward to being part of the group next year. Gentle yoga has become an important part of my overall approach to pain management" (Felicity Bodycoat, 2012)
