|Introduction to Yoga for CFS
A course by Yoga Teacher, Jaye Hayes
Introduction to Yoga for CFS offers a practical & philosophical foundation for living well with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
This 8 week program provides a pathway to improved physical & mental wellbeing based on a compassionate & intelligent approach to working with/in the body.
The course combines ‘active rest’ with ‘restful action’ to enable students to gently expand their capacity. Students are guided to engage in self-inquiry, to develop self-awareness & to practice self-care. This process encourages students to discover the wisdom within the illness.

It is suitable for those who are in a recovery or management phase & have completed the Introduction to Yoga for CFS course. It offers a progressive practice specific to the needs of students with CFS.
This class refines foundational body awareness skills & develops the ability to apply intelligent embodiment in new ways, not only in yoga practice but also in everyday life.
The support of yoga props & clarity of alignment facilitate a gradual transition from supine poses to supported standing poses. This process unfolds slowly, with an emphasis on consolidation & repetition to enable students to build strength & stamina without fatiguing or stressing the body & mind.
This creates an experience of easeful growth & expanded capacity that is authentic & sustainable, while also providing a responsive & flexible support structure to navigate fluctuations in energy levels.
Classes emphasize self-inquiry & self-care, & offer students with CFS a sustainable pathway to improved physical & mental wellbeing.
Yoga Pathways is suitable for students who have completed the Introduction to Yoga for CFS course or have previous yoga experience. Students without CFS welcome!
