Yoga for Pain helps those with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and persistent pain to enjoy movement, manage stress and build confidence.
In Part 1 beginning in February, we learn in the safety of a small group to avoid the flareups that can come with exercise by exploring how to calm the nervous system, participate in effortless movement, and learn skills for relaxation.

I found Saturday’s workshop wonderful. The atmosphere was so welcoming and open. Really helpful increasing my appreciation of what my body can do rather than worry about what it can’t do. (Maeve, 2012)
Learn how to move without aggravating your discomfort, and in a way that manages the stress that often accompanies pain. As you rebuild a connection with your body you’ll discover that movement can be delightful and teach you a lot about yourself. If you have previously had a physical yoga or other movement practice, this will also be a re-discovery of how you can approach yoga when your body currently won’t allow you to practice as physically as you once did.
Each session includes breath work, meditation and yoga asana (postures). Supported by reading and audio material, we cover:
- Breath and whole body awareness
- How to adapt postures to suit your structure
- Finding stability in the legs, core and mind
- Gentlenesss towards your body and yourself
- Creating a simple home practice to gradually build strength and mobility
The extra support between classes means that your learning continues all week, and not just when you are on the yoga mat.

“The yoga process gives me freedom in my body – in movement and ease; as well as a sense of peace of mind through concentration and meditation.” (Ellie Gilna, 2013)
“Excellent for anyone in pain who needs gentle guidance and to learn to accept and not judge their body and their limitations.” (Rebecca, May 2014)
