Next Workshops Yoga for MS:
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society advocates practices such as yoga and tai chi for alleviating symptoms of MS, such as fatigue, numbness in limbs and loss of balance. By emphasizing stretching and breathing, yoga postures (known as asanas) can be profoundly effective at promoting balance, coordination, circulation and mental clarity. A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that yoga can be effective at managing the progression of MS. A 2004 study by the Oregon Health & Science University, for example, found that six months of yoga significantly reduced fatigue in people with multiple sclerosis.
