Yoga and chronic pain Tag

Christiana is hypermobile. She was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue in 2009 and had been bed-ridden and unable to work since. Christiana wanted to find a balanced level of energy to sustain daily activities and to learn to use her body in a safe way to build strength. Christina’s osteopath agreed that Yoga for Pain would be a good way for Christina to take control of her body and create new habits to build physical and emotional resilience.

John was experiencing pain in a number of postures in his Bikram Yoga class and wanted to know what was and wasn’t suitable for an ongoing problem in his back.  He had been seeing a musculoskeletal physiotherapist for persistent back pain that he attributed to twenty years of high-level sport and physical work.  John’s physiotherapist considered that John could benefit from an outside perspective on his yoga practice so that he could practice safely and in the most beneficial way for his body.
