What a crazy few months it has been since the new year! It feels like so much is happening and I am trying not to lose myself and work and yoga and find enough time to breathe (deeply). Sadly this has meant that I have not had much time to blog or to comment on all of the wonderful content written by the CFS/Chronic Illness blogging family (but I’ve still been reading!)- you are all an inspiration and a comfort to me.
My yoga teacher training will be coming to a close in a few short weeks, and I will soon begin teaching yoga- which has been my dream ever since I got the idea into my head back in August while chatting to a little girl by a lake outside of Berlin. But before this Yoga and Mindfulness practices have highly influenced and shaped my life for the past 4 years- a journey induced by CFS and my desire to be able to travel the world. I have received so much help and inspiration from so many teachers, often found in the strangest of places, and now I am exited to be able to give back, and help those living with Chronic Illness start their journey on to wellness.
Since CFS brought me to yoga, I now would like to bring Yoga back to CFS. The highly aerobic Yoga often taught in studios today will not be helpful for someone who is bed bound, but their are many forms of Yoga and Mindfulness that can help. I am hoping to start up a couple Yoga classes in the UK and I want your help! I’ve designed a very short (7 questions multiple choice!) survey and I’m looking for responses from anyone and everyone living with Chronic Illness! It won’t take more than 5 minutes of your time and I will be very grateful!
You can find the survey here:
You can also leave your comments on this post about your thoughts, experiences or desires about the effects of yoga and mindfulness on chronic illness and what you would like to learn more about.
I look forward to seeing your responses 🙂
