Shared experience with Fibromyalgia and Yoga 8 years ago

Most definitely yoga has made the biggest impact on my fibromylgia pain. If I hit feel pain I progress slowly and make sure I am breathing long slow deep breaths which seem to greatly aid in the pain issues. I use to avoid being touched because the pain was so great. Now, I get massages regularly and use the breathing techniques to deal with the pain. I often will visualize the pain as being red and then visualize that I am breathing out the red. Slowly, long and deep breaths until the pain subsides. Hope this is helpful!! :)

Shared experience with Depression and Yoga 8 years ago

I found the improvement to depression resulted as a pleasant side effect of doing yoga to treat fybromialgia. I wanted to relieve some of the pain, but the yoga did much more than ease the pain, it improved my depression symptoms, and has aided me to lose 40 lbs. It also improved my confidence level and has inspired many of my friends and family to get on the floor along side of me and try it.
