Do you have migraines?

Do you have chronic pain?

Headaches, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, muscle stiffness?

Migraines and other chronic illness can be helped by yoga.

You don’t have to be flexible. You simply have to want to change your relationship with your body. Yoga can provide comfort during times of pain, and it can also help you reduce the amount and frequency of pain.

Yoga helps people with chronic pain to manage, heal, and hope.

I have had migraines most of my life, and I’ve tried every possible “cure.” I also have been a student of yoga off and on for 25 years, and am an registered yoga instructor.  Several years ago I decided to learn to accept chronic head pain as part of me (like wearing a size 8 shoe, or gagging at anything “ham” related).  That is a courageous journey. Yoga became an integral part of the journey.

The sanskrit word Ahmisa, meaning non-violence, sits at the core of this courageous journey. Ahmisa is a core component of yoga philosophy.  Fighting battles with migraine only magnifies our pain and suffering. Accessing our courage to question our sense of powerlessness and find self love, even in pain, is the meaningful pursuit. And is a healing journey.

We learn compassion as we dissolve our personal version of the world and grow eyes that are not afraid to see reality as it is.
