SOOOO…WHAT IS A SPOONIE?
“Spoonie” is an affectionate nickname for people living with chronic illness. It is based on the Spoon Theory which was written by Christine Miserandino to explain how people living with chronic illness must carefully budget their energy in order to get through the day. I call my style of yoga Spoonie Yoga because these are gentle practices that are appropriate for Spoonies.
