Yoga Therapy Group for MS

 

For fifteen years we have offered a specialized yoga therapy group for women of all ages with multiple sclerosis in Bloomington IN - Indiana. Gentle, therapeutic yoga addressing the specific needs and abilities of those with multiple sclerosis, integrating aspects of Hatha yoga which are specifically beneficial to those with MS. Yoga poses are modified as necessary and suggestions are given for alternate or supported versions, however we so not rely on chairs unless necessary. Group size is restricted in order to ensure that proper attention and supervision are given to each attendee. The group instructor is an experienced C-IAYT yoga therapist specializing in yoga therapy for MS and other neurological conditions, who has both a personal and clinical awareness of Multiple Sclerosis. 

  • Gentle, modified Hatha Yoga appropriate for those with MS 

  • Therapeutic yoga to assist with proprioception, balance, gait  

  • Learning to recognize forms of stress and tension in the body which can lead to fatigue, spasticity, chronic pain

  • Focus on confidence and body-awareness

  • Using the breath as a natural support during yoga and throughout the day

  • Chairs are implemented in yoga classes on a limited basis when necessary and appropriate

Specialized yoga therapy groups for MS are offered in renewable 3-month modules which include 12 classes and an extensive intake session with a C-IAYT yoga therapist. The facility is appropriate for those with restricted mobility: Handicap accessible parking, no stairs, non-slip floors, and wheelchair accessible bathrooms.

  • Ability, energy level, and knowledge of yoga will vary. We ask that participants come to class with an open mind and respect for others. 

  • Please bring a blanket and large towel, and ensure that phones are turned OFF before entering the room.

 

While yoga therapy classes provide a supportive, group atmosphere, the primary focus of yoga therapy is one-on-one therapy in order to provide customized, long-term therapy and a means of gentle and sustainable self-care. Individual yoga therapy for MS and comprehensive therapy programs are offered in-home
