The benefits of a yoga practice for kids are vast, especially for CF kids. Yoga is one of the most highly recommended forms of exercise for people with CF of all ages, due to its focus on the breath and the body awareness it develops.
I am the mother of two young children who were diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at birth. I knew next to nothing about CF before my first child’s diagnosis. As it were, my discovery of yoga unfolded right alongside my journey as a mother to these two amazing kids I have the honor of calling my own!
CF Yogi’s virtual yoga studio lets students and teachers can communicate with each other in real time. Let’s walk through the technology setup, and the experience of taking a yoga class in a virtual space.
We’re kicking off CF Yogi with a Yoga Jam on New Year’s Day! We’ll put on some tunes, do some yoga, make some new friends, and talk about what we want to see and be in 2019.

We’re happy to announce that we’ve cleared a big hurdle on our startup path – we now are an official nonprofit project, and able to accept tax-deductible donations!
