If you are living with chronic illness, I want to welcome you to experience one of my yoga practices designed specifically for chronic illness warriors. Many chronic illnesses are accompanied by chronic pain and a general sense of fatigue. I’m not talking about your typical everyday tiredness. I’m talking about mind-numbing, soul-crushing fatigue that permeates your entire being, making you feel like an echo of your former self.

As someone who has lived through this kind of fatigue, I understand how debilitating, discouraging and frustrating this is. But I also know that there is hope, and you can take action to improve your overall wellbeing. One of the ways you can do this is with regular yoga practice, and my philosophy is that your yoga practice should always leave you feeling refreshed, never depleted.

Even if you’ve never done yoga before, Sleepy Santosha has practices that will work for you. No fancy equipment is required, and you can begin in the privacy and comfort of your own home.

Because I know what it’s like to live with chronic illness, I am able to create yoga classes that intuitively support the needs of someone experiencing chronic pain and fatigue.

As you practice, be patient with yourself. Yoga is a journey, so don’t be hard on yourself if your body doesn’t look the same as someone else’s body does in a certain pose. We are all unique, each of us with different bone structures, different medical histories, and different degrees of natural strength and flexibility. So do your best not to compare your yoga to someone else’s yoga. Enjoy the journey.
