Ann Swanson is coming March 13th to help us learn about Yoga for Arthritis! Yoga International recently shared a new study on the subject:
"Longstanding modern medical wisdom often prescribes rest for those suffering from arthritis; however, a new study published in the Journal of Rheumatology may challenge that approach. It suggests that gentle yoga may significantly improve both mental and physical well-being.
This randomized controlled trial studied 75 sedentary individuals who were prescribed 8 weeks of gentle yoga (3 hours per week), modified for individual needs. The results were dramatic, finding significant improvements in pain, general health, vitality, and mental health scales compared to a control group."
Ann also has a lot of resources to share, even if you can't make it to the workshop:
