Yoga for Cystic Fibrosis
For wellness of body, mind, and spirit
Yoga is a uniquely valuable tool for managing Cystic Fibrosis due to its focus on breathwork and unity of body, mind, and spirit. A regular yoga practice improves strength, balance, and flexibility, and can even improve lung function. It helps give peace of mind by bringing us into the present moment, helping to relieve stress and anxiety. All of us can benefit from the tools that yoga gives us to improve our physical health, mental well-being, and overall quality of life.
CF Yogi provides yoga classes specific to the needs of the Cystic Fibrosis community.
We offer FREE online yoga classes by the CF community, for the CF community. Unlike conventional livestreamed yoga classes, our class format uses two-way communication, so that teachers and students can communicate effectively with each other in the moment.
We aim to help our community learn from each other, as we navigate the ups and downs of living with this disease.

You Are More Than Your Diagnosis
Daily life with Cystic Fibrosis takes hours of treatments, diligent efforts at compliance, and a lot of conversations with doctors and insurance companies. Yoga gives us a chance to give our attention back to our whole selves, and to what we truly want to do and be.
