Full Description

Yoga for Arthritis was developed at a leading research university by an interdisciplinary team of medical and healing professionals, including rheumatologists, psychologists, public health researchers and yoga therapists. Combining ancient yoga practices with modern medical knowledge, this program offers modifications to address the unique abilities and limitations of persons with rheumatoid and/or osteoarthritis. In a 7-year randomized clinical trial, program participation was associated with improved arthritis symptoms, disease biomarkers, physical fitness, psychological functioning and quality of life.

Understand the basic differences between rheumatoid and osteoarthritis
Offer modifications for persons with arthritis attending their yoga classes
Teach Yoga for Arthritis classes in their communities
Work individually with arthritic clients of all ability levels
