Learn to improve your balance, strength and flexibility while also increasing your ability to focus, relax and concentrate your mind as you approach life with Multiple Sclerosis.

Fees & Payment

This class is specifically for patients of Concord Hospital Multiple Sclerosis Specialty Care Program (Dr. Ann Cabot, Dr. Pooja Raibagkar, Brant Oliver, and Georgia Plamondon) who have a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. It is offered at no cost as funding is provided through a grant that Dr. Cabot has secured for her patient population. As part of the grant funding, class participants complete a questionnaire at the end of the program to share comments and feedback with the funding organization.

 

Description

A medically-based yoga class specifically designed for Multiple Sclerosis patients that combines mat and chair yoga.

You can participate standing or sitting, no mats or special equipment required. The class is accessible to all.Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis


Technology Requirements

A desktop or laptop computer and a stable internet connection. If you're not technologically savvy, don’t worry. The class instructor covers technology information the week before classes start. Just be sure that your computer has speakers and video capability, and that your internet connection is strong and reliable. Tablets and phones can be harder to use, but if that is what you have it’s better to use it rather than miss out.
