I've been told that yoga is good for fibromyalgia, has anyone tried it?
My physiotherapist told me to start off with chair yoga. Lots of free sites on the internet.
@A MyFibroTeam Member...OMG yes yes and yes!!! I LOVE using gentle yoga when my muscles are so tight I can't even touch them! Sometime when I see a pose or think about doing one I just KNOW that it will feel so good to do. BUT...the big BUT...you have to be really careful not to push the stretches too far and to remember that just cause you could totally touch your toes one day does NOT mean that you can today so don't force it!!! I got my poses from these 2 websites:
http://www.doyouyoga.com/8-yoga-poses-for-fibro... - I am NOT a member of the site but I found a lot of awesome information by sort of poking around
http://www.yogajournal.com/?s=fibromyalgia - OMG this site is the "bomb"!!! you can look up ANY pose you can think of...and there is no need to purchase a copy of the journal in order to access the information on the site!
Hope that helps to answer your question!
Light and Hugs,
If I could get down on my knees I would give it a try. I have friends who say it helps. There is a show that comes on TV called Sit and be Fit... The exercises are done while sitting. They really do work...
Stretch yoga..do not hold poses or do repetitive.or u will have pain..
