Thriving with chronic illness is a huge part of my life story. I know what it’s like to struggle with the symptoms of a chronic illness such as pain and fatigue. I’ve been diagnosed with four auto immune diseases. Yoga has been a huge part of my self-care journey for the past 25 years. Yoga has given me a path to walk I can journey on my entire life. Because of my diagnoses, I’ve had to stop multiple activities that brought me joy – blacksmithing, horseback riding, lounging in the sun at the beach all day. Yoga is something I could do before my health challenges were an issue, it’s something I can enjoy now, and I will be able to adjust my practice in the future to stay with it.
As we walk the chronic health path, it can be a challenge to find things that are constants in our lives. We rightly have to give some things up, and I’m grateful for the things I can still do in spite of my health. I believe yoga can fill that void for you as well since it’s infinitely customizable. You can always practice yoga and I wrote this guide to support in your yoga journey.
It includes 8 yoga tools to help guide you to thriving with chronic illness:
