Yoga for MySelf: Yoga for MS | Yoga Therapy Class in Bloomington IN

We are pleased to offer Yoga for MySelf: Yoga Therapy for MS, a gentle yoga therapy class designed to address the specific needs and requirements of those with Multiple Sclerosis. This specialized yoga class has been offered in Bloomington for 12 years and is led by an experienced, C-IAYT yoga therapist specializing in yoga therapy for MS and other neurological conditions. Class size is restricted in order to ensure that proper attention and supervision are given to each attendee, and exercises and postures are modified as necessary. Ability, energy level, and knowledge of yoga will vary… We ask that attendees come to class with a sense of humor and respect for others.

Yoga Therapy Classes Include:
_ Gentle, modified Hatha Yoga appropriate for those with MS
_ Balancing of muscle groups, nerve stretches, hip and spine mobilization
_ Therapeutic yoga exercises to assist with proprioception, balance, gait
_ Learning to recognize forms of stress and tension in the body which can lead to fatigue, spasticity, falls
_ Focus on confidence and body-awareness
_ Using the breath as a natural support during yoga and to decrease overall fatigue and chronic pain

Yoga for Myself Classes meet on Tuesdays at 9:15am in a location appropriate for those with restricted mobility: Handicap accessible parking, no stairs, non-slip floors, and wheelchair accessible bathrooms.
