Living with chronic pain or chronic illness can be incredibly isolating. We often feel disconnected from the people around us. What's even more painful is that we feel disconnected from ourselves, betrayed by our own bodies. In addition to losing our health, many of us have also lost careers, friends, family members, and our sense of self.

Yoga can help us to find our way back home to ourselves, and with Spoonie Yoga Tribe, none of us has to journey alone.

There is always hope! You can begin to heal your life right now...




There are no pre-requisites to join Spoonie Yoga Tribe. Even if you've never stepped foot on a yoga mat before, you are welcome to join. 

"Spoonie" is an affectionate nickname that was created for people living with chronic illness, but I like to expand this term to include people living with chronic pain or mental illness as well because we all face similar struggles and stigma. You will never be turned away for not being "Spoonie enough," nor will you be turned away for not being "healthy enough." Yoga is for everyBODY, and this is what the Tribe is all about.

Anyone who feels that they could benefit from gentle yoga that focuses on cultivating self-acceptance and inner peace is welcome to join. 



how long are the classes?

The length of each class will vary. There are classes as short as five minutes and as long as 60 minutes. Each class is clearly labeled with a time stamp as well as intensity level. You can also view a complete list of poses for each practice, so you'll know right away if the class is something you're feeling up to that day.

can the live classes be watched later?

Yes! Each live class will be recorded and uploaded to the Spoonie Yoga Tribe library, so you can go back and watch it at your convenience if you are unable to make it to the live session.

i'm not sure if i'm a spoonie. can I still join?

Absolutely! Spoonie Yoga Tribe is open to anyone who is interested in gentle yoga practices that focus on self-acceptance. If you're curious to learn more about where the term Spoonie comes from, click here

will you still be offering free content on youtube?

Yes! I plan to continue posting to YouTube every month as usual. I hate when content creators reach a certain point in their following and then suddenly move all of their content behind a paywall. I understand that everyone needs to make a living, but I feel like doing this basically tells your followers that all you care about is their money. I don't want to do that to you guys! This community we have created together means too much to me. The content I share on YouTube is my way of giving love back to you. 

Are the tribe classes different than your youtube classes?

Tribe is everything you love about my YouTube classes and MORE. All of these classes are taught in the same gentle style you love. Each month I upload new exclusive content to the Tribe library, including yoga practices, meditation practices, and lifestyle guides related to that month's given theme. Unlike YouTube, Tribe offers the option to download the classes so that you can take them with you anywhere. Tribe also offers more opportunities to connect with me and with other members. These are incredible people who are really serious about living a yoga lifestyle. 


Hi! I'm Rachel Marie White. I am a yoga teacher and chronic illness warrior. For nearly a decade, I have been living with chronic pain and chronic illness symptoms. Through all of the unpredictable ups and downs, I have learned how to care for my mind, body and spirit with yoga. Sharing this healing practice with others has become my life's passion. I've already helped thousands of chronic warriors to discover yoga practices that really work, and I would love to help you do the same!
