I think I found that CFS/ME is a problem, so overdoing anything made me sick - however doing gentle yoga was VERY helpful and pleasant when only dealing with FM symptoms. I did basic moves (child, table, cobra, etc) in my home and breathing exercises for about 20 minutes. Recently, I have had the most lengthy amt of days where PRFs are above 40 so I have stopped this treatment. I am doing very gentle stretching daily, and moving when I can to tolerance.

Take it slow and if you can afford it, take a beginner yoga class from a licensed instructor. Otherwise, get an inexpensive video from the store or check one out at the library and start with beginner and slowly move your way up.

Advice & Tips
It was a huge step for me to start taking Yoga as I have found it increasingly difficult to be around people, but I went for myself and found that it really helped me to just delve into my own space and not worry about the others around me.
Hatha is very pleasant because it is enough of an exercise that you notice the health benefits, but it is not so strenuous as to create long lasting physical discomfort.
The unexpected benefit is the increase in self control that I am finding in my daily walk and I havent had any lingering thoughts of suicide since starting it.
