Gentle Yoga for Arthritis

This is a specialized and   therapeutic yoga class where you will learn simple, gentle movements that gradually build strength, balance, and range of motion – the very elements that can truly benefit people dealing with arthritis. We will also practice various breathing and relaxation techniques to reduce stress that will also lessen the physical and emotional impact of arthritis.

Over 75 studies published in major medical journals have indicated that yoga holds both physical and psychological benefits for those who practice on a regular basis.  For people with arthritis specifically, the American College of Rheumatology states that yoga is a safe way to exercise that can help decrease pain and stiffness.  It is also beneficial for both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis.

Beyond the benefits of improved levels of physical energy and endurance the regular practice of yoga improves mobility, flexibility and is also helpful with pain reduction as it works to keep the joints better lubricated. Other significant residual effects are reduced stress and a more upbeat outlook on life (depressive symptoms frequently accompany physical arthritis symptoms) that improve general well being and day to day functioning.

The physical class draws on the principles laid down by the work of BKS Iyengar, Moshe Feldenkrais and the teachings of Viniyoga (T.K.V. Desikachar) along with various other modalities.

Each of the movements taught will be modified as needed for each individual in the class. The philosophy is to start where you are, do what you are able, respect your body, keep practicing and you will see improvement over time.

Welcome to a path of healing and renewal!
