    • Adaptive Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis:  No matter what your range of motion or your present abilities the Yoga postures offered can be approached with the use of props to gently achieve a pose.  Because each person's experience with MS is different, some students may be able to participate in a regular on the floor mat class and others may need individual instruction with adapting traditional Yoga poses using props and modification.  You will learn a variety of Yoga poses that will aid in relieving stress, combat fatigue, reduce spasticity and increase range of motion.  Please contact me to discuss your needs.
