Yoga seeks to attain good body posture, which is critical for effective pain relief. Yoga practitioners who suffer from fibromyalgia can anticipate diminished muscle pain, boosted muscle strength, an enhancement of endurance and stamina, liberation from depression and severe mood swings, the ability to sleep through the night, and improved concentration. 

Next we describe five beginner poses to help your fibromyalgia pain and accompanying symptoms.

Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana)

This pose helps to open the chest and increase strength in the back muscles while simultaneously giving the back a great stretch. These regions are highly sensitive for people with fibromyalgia. Therefore, regularly practicing cobra pose will provide substantial relief.

Child Pose (Shishuasana)

This pose allows fibromyalgia sufferers to look within themselves and free their minds of outside stressors. Bearing in mind the disposition of this asana, it rids of any outside stimuli and permits the practitioner to focus on their breathing.

Warrior I Pose (Virabhadrasana I)

This pose helps to strengthen the leg, back, and arm muscles while simultaneously keeping the mind calm.

Cobbler Pose (Baddha Konasana)

This pose support opening of the hips while strengthening the knees and groin region. By practicing this asana on a regular basis, it will help to elongate tight muscles that are contributing to pain and stress.

Corpse Pose (Shavasana)

This pose, which is typically performed at the conclusion of a traditional yoga practice, can also be performed by itself at any time to find peace and tranquility in the mind and body.
