I started practicing yoga about 6 years ago and I’ve found it to be a helpful tool in managing my CF, both physically and mentally. One of the best things about yoga (in my opinion) is that it is easily accessible to just about anyone. The poses (asanas) can be modified to fit a person’s level of skill and physical capability. The breath work (pranayama) is helpful in learning to slow down and deepen breathing – which is great for CF lungs!
Do you practice yoga? If so, how has it helped you in your CF journey?
