Fibromyalgia is an arthritis related condition which includes chronic muscular pain and stiffness, aches, inflammation, soft tissues tenderness, headaches, dizziness, nausea, cognitive impairment, general fatigue and disturbances in sleep. It affects women between the ages of 30 and 50. Approximately 1 in 50 Americans were estimated to have fibromayalgia in 2004, or between 3 and 6 million people in the US. Yoga is a wonderful treatment for fibromyalgia because it teaches those who suffer from fibromyalgia how to relax their painfully tight muscles. Holding breath and bracing against pain is naturally released through breath practices and relaxation techniques offered through yoga. This video will teach you how to soften and release tight and tense muscles. It will teach you how to let go of the heaviness of pain and tension and allow it to flow out of your body. Gentle and supported yoga postures will release tension from your tight muscles and help to reduce pain in your body. The stretches offered in this class focus particularly on the painful zones that I surveyed in my students who suffer from fibromyalgia, specifically: tight hamstrings from muscle spasms, lower back, neck and shoulders. Breath practices will be used to induce calm and help deal with insomnia. Props Needed: bolster, blanket, chair, and yoga strap.
“I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2009. I’ve tried Accupuncture, Chiropractic, Savella, Flexeril, Xanax, Viibryd, Diclofenac, Depo-Medrol, Percocet, Lortab, and Tramadol to alleviate my FM symptoms. NOTHING works during a flare except for Yoga.” Karen

N.B. We will only be giving access to our videos through our membership community now. It is there that we feel we can adequately support our members through whatever their biggest challenge is. So for example, if somebody buys a yoga for arthritis video, they are missing out on the 23 other videos we have available in our membership community that are available to support you in helping you with hip arthritis! We feel the value is incredible. For the price of 3 videos you can have a quarterly membership and access to over 200 videos. It was just a no-brainer for us to make the switch to be able to support our students better.
