Yoga Therapy Group for Multiple Sclerosis

Yoga for MS - Yoga Therapy Group

 

For thirteen years we have offered Yoga for Myself™: Yoga Therapy for MS, a specialized yoga therapy class in Bloomington Indiana designed to address the specific needs and abilities of those with Multiple Sclerosis. Gentle, therapeutic yoga classes integrate 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 class instructor is an experienced, C-IAYT yoga therapist specializing in yoga therapy for MS and other neurological conditions, and has both a personal and clinical awareness of Multiple Sclerosis. 

  • 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

  • Focus on confidence and body-awareness

  • Using the breath as a natural support during yoga and to decrease overall fatigue and chronic pain

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

Yoga therapy classes meet weekly in Bloomington IN. 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 vary. We ask that participants come to class with a sense of humor and respect for others. 

  • Yoga for MySelf ™3-month modules 

  • Yoga therapy groups follow certain standards and guidelines. An initial assessment and individual follow-up session must be scheduled within each 3-month module.

  • 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 self-care. Individual yoga therapy for MS and comprehensive therapy programs are offered in-home
