Yoga for Healing Class with Michele
Our weekly therapeutic yoga class is specially adapted for people who need a little slower pace and extra TLC. This class is beneficial for people in recovery from or living with cancer and auto-immune disorders such as: fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, MS, and rheumatoid arthritis. This class is also supportive for those healing from structural challenges such as chronic back, neck pain or joint restrictions. The group atmosphere offers a friendly and communal space to re-integrate body and soul, and provides a safe way to begin moving. Regardless of the origin of disease, all students benefit from the deep relaxation, gentle stretching, overall toning and breathing techniques. Postures are adapted individually as is appropriate: Chairs and yoga props offer great options to keep knees, hips and backs from strain and stress. Students leave class feeling empowered by learning new ways to alleviate their own pain and tension, while finding a greater sense of peace of mind.
