10 minutes of yoga for fibromyalgia every day is far better than trying to do a 60 or 90 minute class once and never trying it again. Or worse, causing a flare and being in extra pain for however long it takes to recover.
Just 10 minutes of yoga for fibromyalgia a day can make a massive impact on your quality of life. And it doesn’t have to be active yoga either.
It could be:
- Yoga Nidra guided meditation
- Other meditations
- Breathing practices
- One pose for a specific purpose (like cat and cow for your back)
- A short mindful movement class
- A restful yoga class (again, likely one pose if you only have 10 minutes)
Here are some posts that will convince you of the benefits of yoga for fibromyalgia:
Yoga for Chronic Pain and Fatigue
Breathing, The Central Nervous System and Yoga

- reduced fatigue
- reduced pain
- increased physical capacity

- less anxiety
