Yoga For Arthritis, Spine Health, & Strong Bones

Sep 2018 to Nov 2018
Thursdays, 6:30-8:00 PM Sept 27-Nov 15

Yoga for Arthritis, Spine Health, and Strong Bones                                    

  • Do you believe that you cannot “do yoga” because of arthritis, joint pain, and limits in your mobility and strength?
  • Have you been told that Yoga is “not good for you” if you have osteopenia or osteoporosis?
  • Would you like to gain spine and joint mobility, improve your posture, perhaps regain some height (this may not occur in 8 weeks, but it can occur!), and gain strength?
  • Are you unsure of your balance and ability to particpate?
  • Would you like to CREATE CHANGE?

If you answered “Maybe” or “Yes” to any of the above questions, join us for an 8 week session of “Yoga for Arthritis, Spine Health, and Strong Bones”. These classes will be progressive and we will add on each week. You will learn breath, postures, and poses that you may do at home or incorporate into other yoga or exercise programs.

  • Although the ability to get onto and off of the floor is a plus, classes may be done in a chair.
  • Shoes may be worn.
  • You do not need specific “yoga clothing”, only clothing that allows you to move easily.  We have mats and other equipment.

: This IS a group class, and while Rebecca is first and foremost a Physical Therapist, the class will be addressing all of the above concerns for the entire group. If you have concerns about your ability to participate or would like to discuss individual evaluation and sessions to meet your needs, please contact Rebecca Meehan PT WCS PYT at rebecca@embody-pt.com Often, after evaluation and 1-2 individual sessions, you will have the confidence and ability to participate in the class.
