For eleven years we have offered Yoga for MySelf: Yoga for MS, a specialized yoga therapy class in Bloomington, Indiana designed to address the specific needs and abilities of those with Multiple Sclerosis. Gentle, therapeutic yoga exercises and postures are modified as necessary and suggestions are given for alternate or supported versions of yoga poses. Class size is restricted in order to ensure that proper attention and supervision are given to each attendee. The class instructor is an experienced, C-IAYT yoga therapist specializing in yoga therapy for MS and other neurological conditions, and has both a personal and clinical awareness of Multiple Sclerosis.
