Hi, I'm CarolAnn with, and I'm going to show you some yoga exercises for Fibromyalgia. Now, with Fibromyalgia, the goal here is to relieve pain, and then also to create some energy. So, there are lots of poses that you can perform, but I've got two really good ones for you. So, the first one is a chair pose. So, what we're going to do is come into a position where our feet are about hip-width apart, and we bring our arms out to the front, and in chair pose we just simply inhale to prepare and exhale as we sit back into our heels and lift up through the chest, and we hold for about five breaths, and then we come back up. Again, we inhale, exhale, sitting back and down into the heels, lifting the chest as high as we can, and now if you want to create energy, we can really do some great movement with this. So, we inhale, exhale coming down, inhale standing up, exhale coming down, inhale and up. Now, depending on your pain level that day or your fatigue, just get moving. We've just got to create some energy and your body is going to feel a lot better. So, this is your chair pose. You can do a moving chair pose or you can hold your chair pose for five full breaths and relax. Now, another great pose is a dancer's pose, and what we're going to do here is we're really going to create strength and vitality as we're lengthening the quadricep. So, balance on one foot, you can even take your arm out to one side, or if you have a wall that you can place your arm on, you know whatever you need to balance. But, you're going to balance on one foot, grab the other foot and draw the heel in towards your glute. So your knees are together, pointing straight down, and this is a modified dancer's pose. Again, what we want to do is we want to create nice heat in the body and we want to alleviate pain and we just want to create energy and starting to feel good and release. So, change legs. So, you're balancing and holding the dancer's pose for five full breaths. Inhale through the nose, exhale through the nose. Now, you may start to teeter totter, but that's okay because the world is moving, the Earth is moving, and you need to move along with it. So just adjust, work on your balance, make sure everything is relaxed and after five breaths, release. So you can perform, you know, three sets on each side with the dancer's pose, and just make sure you're concentrating on your breath. And those are some great yoga poses for Fibromyalgia.
