I heard that yoga could be helpful but could never find suitable classes
I knew that gentle movement, mindful breathing and meditation could be useful tools, but the time and energy needed to get to a studio was too much (let alone trying to do a 60-90 minute class). I’d get a couple of minutes into an online class and find more poses I couldn’t do than I could. They’d go so fast I couldn’t keep up. Or, worse, I’d manage the class and then be in pain for days afterward.
How could these tools help me manage symptoms when I couldn’t even try them?
In the traditional sense, they couldn’t. I’m not super flexible, can’t do long classes and have specific bodily needs.
We need easy, accessible, pain-, fatigue- and brain fog-friendly yoga classes to help us rest, move mindfully, breathe better and relax.
To help us relieve tension and pain, sleep better, gently move our bodies and reduce stress.
So I trained to become a yoga teacher and create yoga tools specifically for people with chronic pain and fatigue
- Tools to help manage pain, fatigue and insomnia
- Accessible movement for bodies with chronic pain and fatigue
- Without making things worse
- Available where and when your energy and pain levels align, with multiple class options and variations, streaming when you are ready
- Designed especially for what you need (sleep, pain management, relaxation, calming, gentle exercise)
- With a supportive teacher who experiences this in her own body
- Learn my yoga framework and start improving your sleep, reducing your pain and enjoying movement again
I LOVE knowing that I can induce deep rest, alleviate muscle tension, gently release my neck (a 24/7 issue to manage) MYSELF. It is profoundly satisfying to have tools, know when I need them and be free to use them almost anytime, anywhere.
