Yoga for Arthritis

 


Coming in January….

Next 8 Week Workshop  – Dates TBD

 

This 8 week series is for people living with arthritis or similar symptoms of pain and stiffness. It draws from a variety of styles to best address the specific needs of people with arthritis.

This is a gentle class designed to help you understand how to use yoga and modifications to manage your arthritis. We may use chairs, blocks, the wall, or other props to support your body in the practice as needed.

While this class teaches you how to customize yoga movements using props and modifications, it also includes information about meditation, diet, and physical activity to support you in your healing, offering the full benefits of a complete yoga practice.

As you learn how to move past the joint discomfort to get the benefit of a yoga poses, you will also begin to create a home practice. This class comes with a manual, and meets twice a week for 8 weeks.

This class is taught by our Yoga for Arthritis specialist, Diane Dunn, and is based on the research presented by Dr. Stephanie Moonaz, a leading expert on yoga for arthritis.  It was the information and experience that Diane received from her own work with yoga and therapy after a knee replacement, along with her course with Dr Moonaz that motivated her to share this information with the community.  Read more about Diane here.
