Twice on FibroHaven I have had the pleasure to share with you the wonderful resource Yoga for Fibromyalgia by Shoosh Crotzer.
In Tips for Easing Fibromyalgia Pain Naturally, I shared an excerpt from Shoosh demonstrating her Healing Breath Technique, and then in Book Review: Yoga for Fibromyalgia, I shared with you her wonderful philosophy and structure for the book, and was pleased for the opportunity to partner with her publisher Rodmell Press in giving a copy away to one lucky commenter.
And now I am happy to share that healthy living for women website, Lifescript.com, has posted a great article on Yoga for Fibromyalgia – Need Fibromyalgia Pain Relief? Try Yoga. The article discusses the benefits of yoga for fibromyalgia and breaks down a sequence of five seated poses directly from the book.
Each of the five poses are broken down into how to set up and get into the pose, how the pose benefits you, and cautions for any pain or discomfort. They even include one of my favorite poses – the seated belly twist!
What a great way to get access to this wonderful book and gently incorporate yoga into your daily routine. It is just a small sample of the beneficial information and poses in the book, but a very good introduction.
As I continue towards becoming a certified yoga instructor, I know this book will be one of my tools to help me share the loving and healing benefits of yoga. I love Shoosh’s philosophy and her gentle reminders to listen to our bodies and honor what we are feeling. I will carry that wisdom with me into each class that I teach.
