Yoga for Chronic Pain

Being active and getting yourself up and moving is important when you have interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS). Regular exercise helps maintain your heart, lungs, muscles, bones, joints, bowel, and brain function. The health of your bladder also depends on good blood flow to the area and on having flexible and strong muscles around your bladder and other pelvic organs to protect and support them.

Though there is no set “IC-friendly” exercise program, many IC patients report that yoga and other gentle exercises are helpful.

The U.S. Pain Foundation is hosting a free interactive class and live Q&A with Ryan Drozd, a yoga instructor and wellness expert on Tuesday, Jan. 21, at 1 pm EST that will offer you a chance to explore yoga from the comfort of your home.
