Ive heard its good for fibro suffers
I've been doing "gentle yoga" for about 6 months now and it's wonderful. When I am having a really bad day, it has taught me some nice relaxing positions to use to restore my body. I am also feeling stronger than I have in years. Even though it is gentle, I am still slowly building muscle, gaining strength, and stretching joints. I haven't had one flare up as a result of doing yoga which is most important to me unlike normal exercise, even simple walking.
Yoga - light or advanced, regardless of experience or ability, is a great way to keep your body moving and prevent atrophy from setting in due to lack of mobility caused by pain.
Yoga is absolutely brilliant for fibro!!! Start really slow dont even worry if you dont finish the class go up the back if this worries you. GIve it 6 months depending on the shape your in before you see incredible relief from it. Yin yoga to start if you are really unfit but I find a combo of yin and flow are great and a few little sun salutations or stretches on your days off yoga. 1 kg of epsom salts bath will help you recover if you get sore. get my epsom salts from an animal produce store 25kg for around 20-30 dollars otherwise its too expensive. Persistance is the key even on your painful days I still went . Now the relief I get from a yoga class is incredible and believe me im still not flexible but I feel 2 inches taller when I walk out of the yoga studio. Good luck! x
I do a style called yin yoga, and find it really helpful. I love this website yogaglo.com since you can do it at home and chose the duration, level etc
