#MEAction & Nourish Therapeutic Yoga Announce: an Extremely Modified VIRTUAL Yoga Class Crafted for pwME￼
October 28, 2022 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm PDT
#MEAction is excited to partner with Shannon Williams-Bramburger of Nourish Therapeutic Yoga to provide a 30 minute, virtual yoga class on Friday, Oct 28th at 12pm PT/3pm ET/8pm BST that has been crafted specifically for people with ME. The whole class will be lying down and can be done from bed.
What to expect in this 30 minute class:
5-10 min. Breathing Exercises & Grounding
10-15 min. Gentle Yoga with Breath
10 min. Guided Relaxation Meditation
There is an option to stay at the end of class for an additional free 30 minute Community Chat. This gives the opportunity for you to ask questions and engage in a positive, supportive community with others who “get it.”
This is the first time #MEAction has offered this type of community activity as we are always looking for new ways to connect and provide support. If you are not able to attend the class in-person the class will be recorded and shared at a later date.
If you would like to learn more about Shannon, you can check out her here and her approach to yoga here. And if you do like this type of class, Shannon offers free or pay-it-forward classes the first Saturday of each month at 10am PT/ 1pm ET.
Shannon is a person with ME and shares, “My passion is adapting yoga to meet your body where it is at, in order to empower those with chronic health conditions to successfully participate without exacerbating their symptoms.” This was critically important to us at MEAction when Shannon reached out to us. We know that even this adapted yoga will not be suitable for everyone in our community. Please approach it cautiously and as always follow the principles of #StopRestPace.
#MEAction appreciates Shannon reaching out to us and offering this type of activity to our community for free. Hope to see you at the class in a few weeks.
