Yoga can ease fibromyalgia, arthritis pain

A new study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, recommends regular, moderately intense exercise such as walking, strength training, and yoga to alleviate pain caused by fibromyalgia and arthritis. The study had 135 women exercising three times a week for four months, initially for 30 minutes and increasing to 60 minutes. Pain was reduced by 45 percent after 16 weeks. It can be hard for people living with pain to get motivated to exercise. Has anyone experienced this or had success teaching students with chronic pain?
