I’ve been dealing with MS and lupus for over ten-years now.

I know what it’s like to need a nap after a shower or cancel plans with friends for the tenth time. I also know that good doctors and medications are great for managing symptoms but not so great in helping us deal with the hidden, intangible, and emotional struggles of disease.

That’s why I wrote The Yoga Prescription: A Chronic Illness Survival Guide to provide a new perspective.

I put together my experiences as a patient and yoga teacher to show how I use a different approach to adjust, adapt, and thrive through chronic illness using the philosophies of yoga.

There are no fancy poses here, in fact you can put into practice every bit of this yoga book while in bed, and I don’t shy away from being honest and upfront about my experiences. I never used the word “sucks” while teaching yoga across Los Angeles, but it seems fitting these days and I don’t believe in playing to social norms.

So, here we are navigating our new normal. Is it easy? Heck no. But together I believe we can get through it.

What People Are Saying

Ashlee Johnson

"This short read got down to business, made starting yoga accessible to anyone, and provided a deep understanding and reflective look at how to mentally deal with the daily struggle of health. Much like yoga, Cory points out that wellness is a practice. Each day, as long as we are listening to our body, maintaining it in the present, accepting our bodies for what they are capable of, and first doing no harm to the body we have - living with illnesses is manageable. She doesn’t paint it as a pretty beautiful cure or overshadow the struggle of living with daily struggle, but this book does provide hope for a way to acceptance to what we are capable of today."


"I am a yoga teacher and work with people who have health issues but don't have chronic illness myself. I found this book excellent. It is very clear so will help beginners as much as experienced yogis."


"I've lived with chronic pain most of my life. I've tried yoga in the past, and I always did a lot of modifications. I look forward to implementing (slowly) some of these moves into my day, when possible. The author does a nice job of reminding readers that life with a chronic illness is manageable, but it's still possible to live a good life."
