My name is Rachel Marie White. I'm a yoga teacher and chronic illness warrior. I am so glad you're here! This is the place for you if you...

  • are living with chronic pain or chronic illness
  • feel disconnected from your body and yourself
  • feel intimidated by other yoga programs out there
  • want to sleep better and have more energy
  • want to feel better and more comfortable in your body

You are not alone! As someone living with chronic illness myself, I understand what it's like to feel trapped in your own body. I know what it's like to live with brain fog, depression, fatigue, and chronic pain. But I also know that it is possible to find contentment and cultivate an abundant, healthy life even with chronic illness.  I would love to help you on your wellness journey! 




Thanks so much for doing this...the Spoonie [Yoga] packages are amazing...they have given me the confidence and guidance to start a daily yoga practice...many blessings.

Thank you for these videos. I have suffered from chronic abdominal painfatigue/muscle pain for the last two years without diagnosis. I need to find a way to help myself. I tried a yoga class and spent the whole session hiding back the tears and sitting out a lot of the poses. [Your videos] have allowed me to do [yoga] in the comfort of my own home and get my first footing into my own practice.

I am so grateful to have found this video and channel. I am completely new to yoga. As a person living with POTS, I found this sequence supportive and relaxing. Thank you so much!

I really appreciate your specialized yoga. I have EDS III so I can’t push my joints too hard on the flexibility workouts, so the seated flows feel fantastic knowing I don’t have to adapt them to reduce weight bearing on my wrists and ankles.

I finally found a yoga video that is slow and gentle enough for my CFS. Thank you.
