Tai Chi for Arthritis with Eleanor Hand and Susanne Pickering
Wednesdays, 11:00am-12:00pm, July 2 - August 20

Tai Chi for Arthritis is based on Sun Style Tai Chi. Dr. Paul Lam, a family physician and tai chi expert worked with a team of tai chi and medical specialists to create the Tai Chi for Arthritis. The slow, gentle, and continuous movements develop flexibility in the joints and strength in the muscles surrounding the joints. This reduces pain and increases mobility. The higher stance and follow through steps make this form of tai chi easier for those with joint restrictions.

Tai Chi for Arthritis can be modified for students with different sorts of physical limitations. It can be taught using physical support or from a chair, Tai Chi for Arthritis increases core strength and improves balance. The CDC recommends this form of Tai Chi and cites evidence that it prevents falls when practiced twice a week over a period of six months. Tai Chi for Arthritis is a moving meditation, which quiets the mind and opens the heart. Please join us in learning this practice that you may enjoy doing in class and at home.

EleanorSusanneOne teacher has shared that “as he practiced he began to notice positive changes in his health. His knees, which were scheduled for replacement, were not requiring the usual ice packs and heavy meds to relieve pain. After a year of Tai Chi he was off all medications and had returned to a normal active lifestyle without pain.”

Eleanor Hand and Susanne Pickering will be teaching this eight-week session. Eleanor and Susanne are both certified by Dr. Lam and the Arthritis Foundation to teach Part I and Part II of Tai Chi for Arthritis.

Therapeutic Yoga with Yoga Nidra with Terri Leonard
Thursdays, 11:00-12:30pm, July 10 - July 31

Terri LeonardTherapeutic or adaptive yoga welcomes adults with neurological or autoimmune disorders, arthritis, mental-health issues, brain injury, stroke, chronic pain, and other disabilities. Traditional yoga is adapted through the use of props, partial postures or movements, pranayama (breathing practice), and yoga-inspired body awareness exercises, so that students, regardless of ability, can receive the benefits of yoga. We practice in straight-back chairs, wheelchairs, standing with supports if required, or on the floor, depending on the needs of the students. In some classes, we may work at a variety of levels. We use straps, bolsters, blankets, blocks, and chairs to make necessary modifications for the most comfort and benefit of each student. The needs of the students determine the goals of each adaptive class.

Yoga Nidra is a "guided" meditation where the instructor talks while the students rest in sevasana (either in chairs or on the floor). It is a formatted kind of deep relaxation, guided in a specific way to induce deep physical relaxation combined with subconscious. Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice of mind-body connection that has been largely absent from most westernized yoga practices. The benefits of Yoga Nidra have recently been found to be useful for healing chronic pain, post-traumatic stress and insomnia.

This class is free to persons living with MS who are approved for sponsorship by the GA MS Society
