Yoga for Fibromyalgia

  • Apr 12, 2010
Due to the nature of pain symptoms, Fibromyalgia sufferers often find it very difficult to exercise. Yoga is a good choice. The movements gently stretch out tight muscles and relieve tension. Moreover, it is possible to adapt a program for those times when pain or other Fibromyalgia related symptoms are at their worst.

Yoga for Fibromyalgia is the book that I have trying to find for a good long while. This valuable resource shows a variety of yoga postures (complete with color photographs) showing how they can be adapted on those bad days. Many of these movements can be done while you are sitting at the computer or watching television to relieve tension.

Near the end of the book, the author also shows how to combine the positions to create daily routines. Specifically with Fibromyalgia symptoms in mind, the book includes realistic ready made programs for pain relief (upper body, lower body, or general as needed), for fatigue, and for good days.

About this book


Fibromyalgia, which affects more women than men, is characterized by widespread pain in muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points — places on the body where slight pressure causes pain. Although mainstream medicine has yet to devise a successful plan for treating fibromyalgia, yoga offers sensible strategies for managing, and sometimes overcoming, the pain. Written by a yoga teacher and suitable for both yoga novices and veterans, this book is grounded in simple movements, breathing techniques, and guided visualization and relaxation sessions. Readers learn to reduce stress and manage fibromyalgia through eight sequences: four for pain relief, one to diminish fatigue and improve sleep, and three for maintaining body awareness and general flexibility. The author's simple, supportive language and mixture of theory, practice, and the latest scientific data offer hope for one of the most challenging health conditions.
