SOME COMMENTS FROM MEMBERS 2008
"Yoga for ME twice a week has become a 'life-saver' for my illness and made a huge difference to my life, which without it would be isolated and unsupported. The teachers are very sensitive to and understanding of ME and its limitations and make it possible for all of us to participate at our own level. It's wonderful to mix with fellow sufferers and share experiences and feel secure with like-minded people, who are coping with this misunderstood and severely debilitating illness. The atmosphere is caring and gentle and makes a huge difference to coping on one's own. The free taxis help enormously and many just wouldn't be able to attend without this help.
"It's wonderful that funding has been available for this group and I truly hope that it will be available in the future for this well-deserving cause."
"Attending the Yoga for ME has made a big difference to me . As well as helping some on my symptoms it is nice to have something positive to look forward to where I meet others who also share similar experiences. ME can be so isolating at times. Thank you so much to everyone involved in making 'Yoga for ME/CFS' happen."
