Yoga for MySelf: Yoga for MS

Therapeutic Yoga Class

For the past nine years we have offered a specialized yoga class  ~ Yoga for MySelf: Yoga for MS ~  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.
