Yoga and _________

There are people doing amazing work out there using yoga to complement other modalities to help create vitality, ease suffering, and improve physical and mental abilities. I met a few of those people last weekend and I'm thrilled to share their work with you:

Yoga and Arthritis
In reality, beginner yoga classes may provide simple, gentle movements that gradually build strength, balance, and flexibility – all elements that may be especially beneficial for people with arthritis. In this article, Steffany Haaz Moonaz, PhD and registered yoga teacher (RYT-500) will demystify yoga for arthritis patients and their providers. (click link above to read more)
Yoga and Cerebral Palsy
Individuals with physical disabilities often seek alternative means of exercise to help them stay strong and healthy. As Ryan McGraw discovered, yoga can be a great way to improve balance, coordination, stability and movement while strengthening the mind.
Chair Yoga - "Get Fit Where You Sit"
Chair yoga offers you the ability to improve your health through an amazing form of adaptive exercise. You are supported by a chair so you can receive yoga’s healing and restorative benefits that have been known for thousands of years. Yoga relaxes your body and mind, improves your musculoskeletal fitness and flexibility, and elevates your overall health and well-being.
Yoga and Somatic Counseling
[Hala's] approach is holistic- she works with a depth psychological perspective that emphasizes the soul (psyche) and each person’s inherent capacity to heal and move towards wholeness. She works with a technique called Somatic Experiencing to help release contractive patterns of trauma from the body-mind to balance and reorganize the nervous system and the entire being.
