Abstract
Purpose Studies in circumscribed clinical settings have reported that yoga has been adopted by fibromyalgia (FM) patients of many cultural backgrounds. However, yoga styles vary in the methods they emphasize, and it is unclear from existing studies which types of practices FM patients are typically engaging in, and the extent to which they experience yoga as helpful or not. The purpose of this study was to survey FM patients in many different regions to inquire about their engagement in various yoga practices, perceived benefits, and obstacles to further practice.
