    Hey fellow lupus yoginis,

    Does yoga help your lupus? I've been practicing for about five weeks now and still get really sore/stiff after a yoga session? I'm worried that the physical stress of the workout may be putting me into a flair...any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    juliebeets .. I'm not sure about the Lupus yet .. but I do gentle yoga early evening to work out some of the tension in my back and legs ..
    BUT ... I have noticed some sessions are just down right painful .. when I feel that is the way it is going to go I skip a night or two and it seems to help ..
    Normally you would think every night would be a good plan but I think we have to cut ourselves some slack here and there so our muscles don't get too cranky ..
    I do love my yoga though .. it helps so much with flexability !
