Arthritis is one of the leading causes of disability in America. More than 20 million individuals with arthritis have severe limitations in function on a daily basis. Yoga can provide a gentle and safe way to move.
"Yoga for Arthritis" is a two hour workshop where we will talk about how yoga can provide gentle and safe movement for all your joints with gradual progression. I will be teaching poses for strength, balance and flexibility with individualized modifications. We will be using chairs, blanket and bolsters as props to support the body and to make the poses comfortable for you.
Benefits of this workshop include:
- Strengthen joints
- Reduce stiffness
- Improve balance
- Increase flexibility
- Manage pain
